Mold and Asbestos Testing

Mold and asbestos in a home can not only reduce the value of the property, but it poses a toxic threat to any inhabitants. Searching a home or any building for mold or asbestos is crucial to maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment. Cornerstone Home Inspections provides home asbestos and mold inspection services in New Jersey to detect these harmful substances and provide a method for removing them.

The presence of asbestos or mold on a property will not go away with time, though many property owners may seek to ignore the possibility. In fact, these substances become more harmful with the passing of time, as asbestos in walls, ceilings and flooring begins to break down and particulates enter the air, where they are even more harmful. Mold will only continue to multiply in damp areas if not contained and can endanger the entire property and all inhabitants.

Asbestos and mold can be deadly to residents exposed for long periods of time. Ensure that your home is free of these toxic substances with a quick and easy home asbestos and mold inspection. Call today to schedule an inspection in New Jersey and learn more.
