Did you know that if you own your own home and are the occupant you can collect your own bulk asbestos samples and save some money?
PacRim offers bulk analysis for our clients including homeowners. The information below will help guide you through your project and and sample collection. All samples should be placed in a zip lock sandwich bag before being transported to our office.
