ASBESTOS | STEP BY STEP GUIDE

Our Asbestos consultants are trained in the proper collection of samples for asbestos analysis.  Typical precautions include:
» Make sure no one else is in the room when sampling is done.
» Wear disposable gloves or wash hands after sampling.
» Shut down any heating or cooling systems to minimize the spread of any released fibers.
» Do not disturb the material any more than is needed to take a small sample.
» Place a plastic sheet on the floor below the area to be sampled.
» Wet the material using a fine mist of water containing a few drops of detergent before taking the sample. The water/detergent mist will reduce the release of asbestos fibers.
» Carefully cut a piece from the entire depth of the material using, for example, a small knife, corer, or other sharp object.
» Place the small piece into a clean container (for example, a 35 mm film canister, small glass or plastic vial,) walk in only, or high quality reseal able plastic bag). Mail or walk in.
» Tightly seal the container after the sample is in it.
» Carefully dispose of the plastic sheet. Use a damp paper towel to clean up any material on the outside of the container or around the area sampled. Dispose of asbestos materials according to state and local procedures.
» Label each container with an identification number and clearly state when and where the sample was taken.
» Patch the sampled area with the smallest possible piece of duct tape to prevent fiber release.

NOTE: If you still don’t feel comfortable taking the sample, call us for detailed instruction.

MOLD | STEP BY STEP GUIDE

» Choose the area of most concern for testing. We suggest testing any areas with visible mildew or water damage. You will need a roll of clear scotch tape and a zip lock bag.
» Take a piece of clear scotch tape. Fold one end over, sticky side to sticky side as this will give you something to hold on to. Leave the rest of the sticky side exposed.
» Gently depress the sticky side of the tape against the area you are testing, and lift the tape off. You should try to get a sample about the size of a postage stamp. More is not necessarily better as it will be observed through a powerful microscope. It is important to only press the tape against the mold one time. If you press the tape to the mold more than once it will cause inaccuracies in the amount of mold detected for a given sample.
» Adhere the sticky side of the tape to the inside of the zip lock bag. Wash hands immediately.
» Label each bag with an identification number and clearly state when and where the sample was taken.
» Fill out our “Chain of Custody” form (click here) and either mail or bring in the sample along with payment.
