What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a term used to describe a group of six naturally-occurring silicate fibrous minerals. These are chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. For many years, the only thing anyone knew about asbestos was its amazing tensile strength and fire- and chemical-resistant properties. It seemed like a “miracle mineral.”
It was quickly utilized in a wide range of products, including floor and ceiling tiles, car parts, siding and insulation. As a result, asbestos is commonly found in residential, commercial and industrial buildings constructed between 1930 and 1990.
Finally, the extremely carcinogenic properties of asbestos were discovered. When inhaled, airborne asbestos fibers lead to significant health problems, including asbestosis and lung cancer. If building materials containing asbestos are disturbed during events such as demolition, renovation or construction, asbestos fibers can be released into the air, threatening the health of anyone in the vicinity.
It’s also easy for asbestos to enter the water supply. These fibers can be freed from building components because of the normal aging and corrosion process or during the damaging effects of a hurricane or tornado.


If you even suspect the presence of asbestos, order an asbestos water test from ETR Labs. Our precise asbestos tests will detect even trace amounts of asbestos in your water. This presence can alert you to asbestos in nearby structures that could be degrading and entering your water supply.

You could also find asbestos in your water if your community water system has pipes made of asbestos cement. As these pipes age, they can release asbestos into your water. Long-term asbestos consumption has been linked to mesothelioma, a devastating form of cancer that forms in the lungs, heart, and abdomen.

We offer asbestos testing of well water as well as community water. Our convenient Do-It-Yourself kit enables you to collect your own sample so you don’t have to schedule a visit from a technician. We simply mail the kit to you, and you return it to us with the water samples.

It’s vital for the health of your employees or family to know if asbestos is contaminating your water supply. We’re here to make asbestos testing as easy and convenient as possible.


Asbestos fibers can enter the water supply from building materials, water pipes made with asbestos cement, or naturally occurring deposits of this mineral. After some kind of disrupting event, such as a fire, landslide, hurricane, tornado, building demolition or construction, asbestos fibers can be released from their hiding places. Asbestos is often found in natural deposits or sidings, tiles, roofing materials, insulation, paint or pipes that get disturbed. Because of the cancer-causing characteristics of asbestos, it is vital for you to know if your water supply contains any asbestos. The asbestos water test from ETR Laboratories can provide you with peace of mind or the knowledge that you need to take immediate action to clean up your water supply.
