Sprayed Accoustical Ceiling
The following links should help you find out the information that you need when dealing with asbestos. During the home inspection process we will attempt to identify the obvious possible asbestos containing materials, but our clients need to understand that asbestos can only be confirmed after looking at the product under a microscope. As home inspectors, it is beyond the scope of our service to perform destructive discovery and take samples, but property owners and prospective owners have a couple good options:
  • Protective Asbestos Fireboard
    SELF SAMPLING - Owners and prospective owners can take their own samples of any suspicious building materials, being careful not to contaminate the interior of the structure, in double Ziploc bags to one of the Utah approved asbestos testing labs.
  • PROFESSIONAL SAMPLING - Owners and prospective owners can also call upon licensed and certified asbestos sampling professionals like IHI Environmental in Salt Lake City, Utah. There is a lot more expense involved in calling upon the professionals, but they will take the needed care to not contaminate the interior of the structure.
    Vermiculite Insulation
    Please be aware that after they sample, they will take it to the exact same labs and receive the same report for about 4 to 10 times the fee of doing-it-yourself.
  • VERMICULITE INSULATION - We have compiled the most informative group of vermiculite articles, links and information that we have ever found on the web.
