For Asbestos

Know the Facts

The term "asbestos" gets thrown around frequently these days, but what does it mean? Asbestos is an organic mineral that can cause serious illnesses, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. It was once used in building insulation, clothing, and construction materials until health risks were discovered. When you're buying a home or making renovations on your property, be sure to ask about the presence of asbestos before making any final decisions. If you suspect that your house has been contaminated with asbestos, hire 1st-Rate Inspections to test for it.

Asbestos In Your Home

Asbestos has been banned from most residential construction materials since the 1970s, but it still remains in some of them. It can be found in wall and attic insulation, siding and roofing materials, heat-resistant fabrics, patching compounds, and textured paint. The presence of asbestos in homes can be dangerous for people who are exposed to it without knowing its risks. There are several ways to remove asbestos from homes and make them safe for people living there. Vinyl flooring is the most common product containing asbestos because it was commonly used for floor tiles before the ban on asbestos in residential construction products was enacted. 

Asbestos Health Risks

Homeowners are advised not to disturb asbestos insulation and other building materials that may contain asbestos. Some of the common symptoms of exposure to asbestos include:

  • lung disease
  • cancer
  • asbestosis
  • mesothelioma


For Lead

Lead Facts

Lead is a pervasive environmental contaminant. The adverse health effects of lead exposure in children and adults are well documented, and no safe blood lead threshold in children has been identified so far.

Lead In Homes

Lead is a toxic metal that has been linked to health risks. Lead poisoning is one of the most common environmental hazards in the United States. Lead enters our homes when we use products containing lead, such as batteries, paint, plumbing materials, and cosmetics. If you suspect that your child or yourself may be exposed to lead in your home, contact us to confirm the presence of lead.

Lead Health Risks

Lead poisoning can cause serious health problems in children and adults. Symptoms can include

  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue and irritability. 

Symptoms can also include muscle weakness, spasms, difficulty walking or swallowing, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet.

Meth In Homes

Meth is a highly addictive drug that causes serious damage to the user’s body and mind. Meth is most often found in homes as it can be smoked, injected, or snorted.
