Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is used in numerous building materials, it can be all around you and yet hidden in plain sight. If you live in a house built before 2004, you may want to schedule asbestos testing to assess how much asbestos is in the house and the risk of harm it presents to your family.

Asbestos can be extremely difficult to safely remove. That’s why the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality strongly recommends hiring a professional for asbestos services.

At Alpha Environmental, we take great care in inspecting ceiling tiles, floor tiles, insulation, siding, roofing materials and more for asbestos. Our professionals have years of asbestos testing experience and are competent in ensuring the safety of the building and its occupants are not compromised.

You can count on Alpha Environmental for asbestos services in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA.

Your Portland Asbestos Professionals

For the safety of your business or home—and your health—it’s imperative to hire a professional for asbestos removal.  

Our asbestos abatement contractors are licensed professionals that have the high-quality training necessary to properly handle, remove and transport asbestos in a safe and timely manner. At Alpha Environmental, we go above and beyond to remove asbestos in the safest way possible, following strict asbestos abatement standards set forth for the states of Oregon and Washington by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

Since safe asbestos abatement can be a time-consuming and expensive process that requires special equipment, pricing for Alpha Environmental asbestos removal and abatement services vary.

Is There Asbestos in My Home or Business?

Many people don’t know that It wasn’t until 1989 that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule in an effort to effectively ban most asbestos-containing products. Prior to the ban, asbestos was among the most common construction materials both in residential and commercial buildings. According to OSHA, materials assumed to contain asbestos if installed prior to 1981 include (but are not limited to) the following: thermal system installation; roofing and siding shingles; vinyl floor tiles; plaster, cement, putties and caulk; ceiling tiles and spray-on coatings; industrial pipe wrapping; heat-resistant textiles; automobile brake linings and clutch pads.

Although it’s now illegal to use or manufacture materials containing asbestos, many people still live in homes that were built with materials containing toxic asbestos fibers. According to OSHA, once asbestos fibers become released into the air, they can easily become inhaled without knowing and get trapped in the lungs and, if swallowed, lodged into the digestive tract. Asbestos is known for causing chronic lung disease, lung cancer, and other cancers. Cancer or other symptoms may take years to develop after asbestos exposure.

If you own or work in an older building, or own/live in an older home or complex—especially one built prior to 2004—the only way to truly know if you are at risk for asbestos exposure is through inspection.

Alpha environmental was extremely helpful in navigating me through the process of testing some leftover construction debris for asbestos so I could take it to the dump. Their office manager spent time with me on the phone discussing the options for sample collection, and was extremely friendly in answering my many questions. Sample drop off at the office was easy and the results even came back a few days earlier than expected. Will definitely return if I need more sampling done!

We used Alpha Environmental Services to conduct our home inspection, radon testing, sewer scope and oil tank decommissioning. Every part of their service was really professional. They took so many great photos of the house during the inspection and offered lots of explanation on what they found. Great team. Highly recommend!
