Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material. It was used on thousands of products because of its resistance to heat, electricity and chemicals and because of its sound absorption and tensile strength. The inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses, including cancer and mesothelioma.

Lead enters the body via ingestion of lead dust and lead in water sources. Our staff, which includes certified Lead Risk Assessors, will conduct assessments to determine whether your students, staff, employees, customers or housing residents are at risk for lead exposure.
