Asbestos Testing in Costa Mesa  

Asbestos is a deadly carcinogen known to cause Mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the lung lining, and was used in a number of common building materials found in homes built before 1978.

Asbestos is commonly found in:

  1. Tape and insulation used in heating duct.
  2. Acoustic popcorn ceiling  
  3. Certain flooring tile
  4. Roofing felt
  5. Asbestos siding is rare, but can still be found

Lead Dust: The Main Source of Lead Poisoning

Lead dust is the most common source of lead poisoning and other health related effects of lead. Lead cannot be absorbed through the skin, so it has to get into the bloodstream in one of two ways. The first being ingested and the second being inhaled. Lead particles found in lead dust are small enough to make it past the filters in the nose and work their way down into the lungs. Lead dust can also very easily coat things such as toys, furniture, food, dishes, and many other surfaces found in the home. Once these surfaces are contaminated by lead dust, they pose a serious health risk to everyone inside the home, especially young children and pets.

If your home was built before 1978 you should have it tested for lead paint, especially if you have young children or plan on starting a family. Lead paint testing is required by law (EPA Lead Paint RRP Law) before any construction, remodeling or repainting any home that was built before 1978. Plus, it is better to know beforehand so you can take proper safety precautions to protect the health of you and your family prior to any renovations. If your home has lead paint and you begin to renovate, sand or repaint the home, you can contaminate your indoor air with lead dust, which will enter your bloodstream from inhalation and can contaminate other surfaces and object you touch, which allows lead dust to be ingested.  

Lead poisoning can affect anyone, but is especially common in young children. It is known to cause learning disabilities among other cognitive disabilities. The EPA estimates that 24% of homes built from 1960-1978 contain lead paint. 69% of homes built from 1940-1960 and 87% of homes built before 1940.
