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.

Asbestos Test Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Note that this says on the package "$40.00 Lab Analysis ". This kit is only the envelope to mail ... Note that this says on the package "$40.00 Lab Analysis ". 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and easy to use The instructions could have been a bit easier to understand. But after reading twice to be sure, it all was pretty user-friendly. One thing though....the product that I received was an older version of this test which indicated that results would be returned within 5 days after received by the testing lab. When I called the lab to ask why I had not received my results, they informed me that they updated their turn-around time (now within 7 days after receipt) and they told me I had an old/outdated test kit (from their previous 5 day turnaround time). Otherwise, everything went according to plan. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible customer service I sent my sample in over 6 weeks ago and I have not gotten any letter/test results back yet, but that didn't stop them from charging me 40 bucks, I tried to register my sample online, but their website doesn't even work for that purpose. This does not appear to be a trustworthy or reliable lab, I wouldn't waste my time. You are better off finding a local lab for the testing, results are usually done in one week. Anyone have their website or phone number, although it sounds like they don't really answer emails, voicemails, or calls. Home Depot, you need to check into this situation pronto.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from $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.
