Asbestos was widely used before the 1980s in construction and building materials.

asbestos, you can count on JHC to test for and safely remove asbestos containing materials (ACM).
Hiring an asbestos testing and abatement contractor is the number one way to protect your family
or employees from this cancer-causing material that may lead to mesothelioma, asbestosis, or
other health problems.

Below are examples of common materials that you should test for asbestos before
removal if they were made before the 1980s.
If you suspect that ACM are present in an area you plan to disturb (by cutting, grinding, removing, etc.),
call JHC to collect and analyze the materials before you do so. If the sample is free of asbestos,
you are safe to commence work with the peace of mind that you won’t be exposed. However, if the material
tests positive for asbestos, JHC can guide you through process to safely remove and dispose of the
Once the extent of the ACM to be abated has been determined, JHC will construct a containment to protect
people outside of the abatement area from potential exposure. JHC’s highly trained personnel will use
the appropriate equipment and technology to safely remove ACM, while monitoring for contamination outside
of the contained area. Once all material is removed, JHC performs additional inspection and clearance
monitoring to confirm removal of material to a safe level.
