Article Summary: 

An asbestos inspection is needed in homes or businesses for several reasons. First, asbestos is still present in many homes built before 1990 in Canada, and exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other non-malignant illnesses. Second, if you plan to renovate your home or business, an asbestos inspection can save you money in the long run by adhering to local testing regulations. Third, asbestos inspections are becoming standard practice in the residential real estate market, and having an inspection can help alleviate any concerns about the sale. If asbestos is found, it is important to seek the advice of a qualified asbestos professional on the best course of action. Asbestos abatement must be done by expert workers if the materials are to be removed.
