Asbestos is more common than you think. It is estimated than in many states, 1/2 of homes were built before 1980, which is a "cut off" year we use to assume a home did not have asbestos materials. I have seen houses built as late as 1983 with asbestos in the "popcorn ceiling". If you are planning any kind of renovation in the home or you want peace of mind when purchasing or selling a home, let P12 Enviro test for asbestos.
The testing of suspect asbestos containing material is typicality minimally invasive and results are usually received within 48 hours of testing. Quick and worth the peace of mind for your family or coworkers!
