It seems to me that if I don't know if something has asbestos I should leave it alone until I know.

Answer: 
It should be safe if you follow the instructions, but first check a few local asbestos abatement companies to see what they charge for a licensed asbestos inspector (as required by law in some locations) to come out. It may be comparable.

Answer: 
Touching asbestos is not hazardous. Breathing it is. If you have asbestos tile and you do not abrade it or otherwise turn it into dust, it will not harm you.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good, but not necessarily official The kit contains a sample bag, plastic gloves, instructions, a detailed order form to help you identify the address and location of each test, and a prepaid mailer. Some tests require a $40 payment, others, e.g. floor tile, an $80 payment. The results came by email as a 2-page PDF email attachment 18 days after I mailed the samples. I could have ordered faster service at an additional cost. The cost of one test kit + lab work was about $87.72. Many asbestos abatement companies offer the services of a licensed asbestos inspector (as required by law in some locations) at a comparable cost. Did I just throw away some money? Maybe, but I know I have asbestos. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Almost as advertised and fast I had to special order and pick up the test kit from the store. Other than that inconvenience, it was easy to use and the instructions are clear. I received an email within a couple days of mailing it in saying the company received the sample and another week to receive the results via email. Be aware though it advertises $40 for the testing except if you intend to test kitchen flooring which I did. Testing kitchen flooring will cost $80 to test the flooring and the adhesive. Overall I'm satisfied with the product. It was fast. It was better than waiting for a human to arrive at the house and waiting for the results. September 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by asbestos kit I thought the kit did the test, instead you have to send a sample off in the mail and spend another $40 at least. Very misleading. October 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and Quick This was a simple and easy process. We received the results well within the promised time frame. October 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by $80 extra charges, slow turnaround, confusing report. You are only buying the kit. To actually have your product tested you must take a sample and mail it to the lab along with a $40-$120 check. My siding was $80 and the report took several weeks to be received, processed, and have results sent. Did not clearly understand the report and received no response to my email request for clarification from ProLab. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pay for the test kit , to send away and pay $40-80 more Misleading product . Website was non descriptive . August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Asbestos test kit Very good instructions and everything needed to perform the task. A great value August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Asbestos test kit The kit was easy to use and after I sent it off the lab sent me an e-mail to let me know they received it. I also was sent the final report in a timely manner. Very professional. July 21, 2016
