Laboratory Testing: Asbestos (PLM) Analysis

Asbestos Analysis Services in Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest Region

Do you think you have asbestos? Asbestos was most heavily used during the 20th century in a wide array of materials from floors, walls, and ceilings to siding, roofing, thermal systems, and more. Asbestos products have slipped into recent construction as well, which is why it’s more important than ever to get proper asbestos testing for the health and safety of you, your loved ones, and other inhabitants in the building.
