Testing for Asbestos

Alpha Environmental professionals are highly trained and certified to perform asbestos testing in residential and commercial buildings. We utilize advanced equipment and proven testing methods to locate asbestos in your home or office. We use three different methods for identifying asbestos.

Material Samples

We utilize polarized light to analyze mineral-specific properties in fibers. We identify asbestos particles and various species of asbestos particles that exist throughout the interior. Tests specify the percentage of asbestos within a certain building material after analysis.

Dust Samples

Sampling dust from a surface by scrape sample, tape-lift, wipe, or micro-vacuuming are common methods that we use to determine the presence of asbestos on surfaces. The results are useful to our team when determining if asbestos is present in a building.
