Asbestos is a hazardous substance found in many commercial buildings and is linked to cancer, asbestosis, and other health problems.
An estimated 1 in 5 commercial buildings (20%) contain asbestos.
That’s why ERI Consulting provides asbestos surveys and asbestos removal in Houston, TX. We have a team of licensed asbestos inspectors who can keep your building safe and up to code with accurate testing services.
Asbestos has been used for many years by construction companies because it is highly fire-resistant. Manufacturers believed they were protecting buildings by using it in insulation, tile flooring, popcorn ceilings, and sheetrock.
Unfortunately, asbestos was eventually discovered to have adverse health effects, some of which are life threatening, including cancer. The substance is easy to ingest without knowledge as it is 80 times smaller than a human hair.
In 1978, asbestos was banned from use in commercial buildings. However, many buildings still contain this fiber, especially those built before the 1980s.
ERI Consulting can provide asbestos surveys in Houston for commercial and residential buildings.
