How do we test for asbestos?
It’s not enough to just look with your naked eye. A special microscope needs to be used and samples can be taken to inspect for asbestos. These samples should be handled delicately, since any wrong actions could be harmful. Under the guidelines of the EPA, samples must be analyzed with polarized light microscopy.
