It is extremely important to have asbestos air testing done on structures built before the year 2000. Prior to that year, asbestos was a popular and widely used building material in homes and commercial and industrial properties as well. When public health officials in the U.K. discovered the physical dangers associated with exposure to asbestos, the material was banned from use in the construction of all buildings.
