Asbestos Inspections & Testing 

Finding and Locating Asbestos

Asbestos, once hailed as the miracle material due to its versatility, was manufactured in a wide range of commercial products almost a century ago, and can still be found in older buildings, homes, and many consumer products. Although the use of asbestos dates back to prehistoric times, at the peak of its manufacturing demand, you could find approximately 3,600 products that were made from asbestos materials. The presence of asbestos is not the danger, but the risk of inhaling the microscopic fibers of an asbestos made material that has started to deteriorate is.

Some common building materials that may contain Asbestos or Other Contaminants include:

  • Pipe wrap
  • Insulation
  • Flooring
  • Wallboard Systems
  • Decorative Textures
  • Various Roofing Components

Asbestos can also be found in a variety of different Cosmetics & Other Household items to include:

  • Eye Shadow, Blush, & Bronzers
  • Products containing Talc such as Compact Powders (similar to Baby Powder)
  • Hair Dryers, Insulated Toasters, & Ovens
  • Fireproofing or Fire-Resistant Products
  • Seals, Gaskets, & Packing Materials
  • Even older Automobiles, Farm Equipment, & Many Antiques

The Importance of an Asbestos Protocol

Located in Nampa Idaho we assist most of the N.W. region performing Certified Asbestos Inspections, Asbestos Testing & Asbestos Sampling.

Asbestos inspections and testing services are typically performed to determine if Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) or contamination are present.  The development of an asbestos protocol is a vital component for any asbestos removal, renovation, restoration, or demolition project because it helps to identify areas and locations that could potentially contain asbestos, provides information on the condition and quantity of asbestos, limits risk of exposure and other liabilities while providing you with the necessary documentation for the health and safety aspects of a project, and to ensures the successful completion of the asbestos abatement or removal.

Asbestos is still legal to buy, sell & use in the United States, even in new construction & various other products!

HK Environmental is certified and experienced to assist with testing building materials, dust, soil, water, and air. We also perform exposure monitoring, site assessments, project clearances, monitoring and oversight, as well as many other environmental, health, and safety services to fit your project needs.

Thanks greatly!

Was a wonderful help when we noticed some water damage while renovating our bathroom. If not for HK Environmental we wouldn't have known there was a leak causing more damage than we initially thought. After a thorough inspection we received recommendations on what steps we should take next. Thanks greatly!
