Customer Questions & Answers

Is it safe for me to test for asbestos or should I hire a professional to do this.

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

My home was built in 1986. Some portions of the ceiling are coated with a popcorn stucco coating that I wish to remove. Would it be wise to test for asbestos before wetting and scraping?
Asked by: butters
I've got a home with popcorn stucco ceilings as well, and have been researching the removal process. Several reputable websites state that the ceiling should be checked for asbestos on homes built prior to 1979. I would have no worries over scrapping your ceiling.

Asbestos Test Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

This kit is only the envelope to mail your swatch in. Given that you still have to pay $40 for the actual analysis I think $8 for an envelope is priced too high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product & Service for DO IT YOURSELF Test Asbestos test kit was excellent for the money. Kit includes bag and gloves for sample collection. Plus postage pre-paid return envelop. I registered my kit online with no issues. Collected the sample per instructions and send it off. You do need to send $40 for the analysis to be performed. This is a very reasonable charge. I received my test results in about five working days after they received the sample. The only bad thing about the whole process was that my Home Depot did not stock the test kit and I had to order online and go back to the store to pick it up I would highly recommend Pro-Lab for asbestos analysis.

The lies from home depot and pro lab about delivery times is way off. I bought the product 11-05. It said if I bought the item that day (a Monday) that I should have it by 11-10 or 11-11. Moments after I purchased it that estimate changed to 11-10 to 11-15. Of course I received the item on 11-16. When I went to Home Depot to pick it up I was amazed, as was the clerk, that they would send something small enough to fit in a 4 x 6 manila envelope in a 12" square box. ( somebody is taking advantage of somebody here). immediately I opened the package to find a small bag with a mailing label in it. Do the executives at Pro Lab not know that they would get more clients by just letting one send in their own samples without purchasing a 3"x 5" plastic bag for a 1 inch sample for 7.15 + tax? (another scam).15 minutes after I received my 'kit' I sent it in the mail. This was 11-16. I then paid for the test online (40.00 dollars). Pro Lab sent me an email that they received the sample on 11-21 and that I should expect the results sent in an email on 11-30. Of course I received that email on 12-01.If you are a contractor doing time sensitive work this definitely not the way to go. I bought the sample, kit on 11-05-16 and got the results back on 12-01-16 and I only spent 47.15 so these slackers could take their time. The test itself was okay once I finally got the results back. For the amount of money that is charged for the test I would have thought that they would be more professional about postage, scamming and time. The sample I sent them would have cost about .75 cents to mail it. To order the product and pay for the service it took me less than a minute. to receive the results it took 26 days. Just sayin'...........

I bought this kit believing the cost would be $40 as stated on the package and on Home Depot’s website. However when I opened the kit I quickly discovered there’s a list of sample types that are $80, not $40. Of course my sample was the $80 type (flooring). Results took about 2 weeks. I have to say the results were a little confusing to read at first. There was a table with abbreviations at the top and zeros under the headings. Last column had “ND” listed for results. There was key at the bottom that explained what the abbreviations stood for, apparently types of asbestos. The “ND” stood for “Non Detected” in the last column. It would have been nice to simply state that asbestos was or was not detected. I had to read the fine print to figure out what the report was saying. Hope I got it right.

Called the company and they said to take it back to Home Depot. I told them that I had picked up a sealed box from Home Depot so it wasn't their fault. She told me they could email me the instructions and I could use my own supplies. BEWARE BUYERS!
