  • More Than 5000 sq ft = 7 samples
  • If unknown or unsure of sq ft = 9 samples

The samples will be analyzed by a certified laboratory for asbestos presence, and any material containing more than 1% of asbestos fibers will be reported as containing asbestos and will be subject to asbestos abatement.Asbestos abatement is not part of this service, but should you need it, we can recommend a certified asbestos abatement contractor.

Professional Asbestos Testing Services by EnvioCore

Trust EnvioCore with your Asbestos Testing Inspections

It’s best to test for asbestos BEFORE you begin your project! During any construction or renovation project, it’s likely that you’ll be disturbing building materials, which can cause microscopic asbestos fibers to be released into the air.

Breathing in these fibers is extremely dangerous. This is why asbestos is a federally regulated hazardous material, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) requires testing before you begin.

*How Many Samples Will The Inspector Take?

State and federal regulations require a minimum of three samples per homogeneous material, but the number of samples increases with the total area of this material.:
Less Than 1000 sq ft = 3 samples
More Than 1000 sq ft = 5 samples
More Than 5000 sq ft = 7 samples
If unknown or unsure of sq ft = 9 samples

Homogeneous material – building material used in different parts of the building but believed by the Inspector to be one and the same due to its physical features such as color, texture, hardness, year of production, and overall physical state. Popcorn ceilings in 3 bedrooms in a house can be made of one homogeneous material and will be tested as one material or can be made of three different materials and will be tested separately. If they are one Homogeneous material and their total area is under 1000 sq. ft. the inspector will pull three samples. If each popcorn ceiling is made of a different material, the Inspector will collect three samples from each of them, in total nine samples. The final number of samples that need to be collected is always determined by the Inspector on-site after the inspection of all the materials that need to be tested for asbestos.

Where Can Asbestos Be Found?

Asbestos is currently banned for most construction uses, but it can still be found in older structures and building materials as well as in recently erected structures if the materials were imported from countries that have not banned asbestos. Here are some of the places you might find asbestos today:

Wall Texture • Joint Compound • Popcorn Ceilings • Linoleum/Vinyl Flooring • VCT 9×9 Floor Tile • VCT 12×12 Floor Tile • Ceiling Tiles • Electrical Wiring • Textiles • Roofing Felt • Roofing Shingles • Siding • Wall Board • Mastic / Glue • Attic and Wall Insulation • Vermiculite • Artificial fireplace fixtures and logs • Heating and Electrical Ducts • Floor and wall tiles • Pipe coating and insulation • HVAC Furnace Boiler jackets, doors, pipes and gaskets

When do I need to test for asbestos in a residential property?

You should test for asbestos whenever you plan to renovate any surface in an old house or whenever you suspect that the elements you are going to move, remove, knock down, or demolish may contain asbestos.

You are legally obligated to test for asbestos prior to any renovation works that disturb a surface larger than 32 square feet. This requirement applies regardless of the age of the structure you are disturbing.

Other trigger levels for asbestos tests are

– 50 linear feet on pipes and

– the volume equivalent of a 55-gallon drum.

Asbestos Testing FAQs

What does asbestos look like?

Asbestos itself is a fibrous mineral, which can vary in color from white to blue to brown. In raw form, it has a fluffy, cotton-like consistency. However, asbestos was commonly mixed into building materials, making it difficult to identify without microscopic analysis.

What does asbestos insulation look like?

Asbestos insulation can look different depending on the type. One common form is loose-fill asbestos insulation, which resembles small, fluffy white or gray pellets or loose fibers. Another form is asbestos blanket insulation which looks like a cotton candy-like material, often found in older homes.

How to test for asbestos?

The safest way to test for asbestos is to hire a professional service like EnvioCore. Our trained experts take a sample of the material in question and analyze it in a lab to determine if asbestos is present and in what quantity.

How to stop worrying about asbestos?

Education and professional assessment are key to alleviating concerns about asbestos. If you suspect materials in your home or workplace contain asbestos, contact a professional like EnvioCore for testing and consultation on proper management or removal.

What does asbestos tile look like?

Asbestos tiles are typically 9-inch, 12-inch, or 18-inch squares and can be found in a variety of colors and patterns. They were popular for their durability, so older tiles that remain in good condition after decades might contain asbestos.

How to identify asbestos?

Identifying asbestos usually requires professional testing as it can’t be confirmed by sight alone. However, knowing the age of the building materials (if they predate the 1980s) and looking for signs of fibrous, crumbly, or fluffy textures can be indicators.

What does asbestos siding look like?

Asbestos siding was commonly used as shingles for homes and can look like cement or plaster. They are typically flat, rectangular, and may have a wavy texture or wood grain pattern.

How to remove asbestos?

Asbestos removal should always be performed by certified professionals like those at EnvioCore. We follow strict regulations and procedures to ensure that asbestos is removed safely, minimizing any risk of exposure to airborne fibers.

How long does asbestos stay in the air?

If asbestos fibers are disturbed and become airborne, they can stay suspended for hours or even days. It’s important to avoid any disturbance of suspected asbestos-containing materials and to have the air quality tested by professionals like EnvioCore if you suspect contamination.

What does asbestos smell like?

Asbestos is odorless. The presence of asbestos cannot be detected by smell, which is why professional testing is necessary to identify it.
