If the asbestos test comes out above the action level due to their 8 hours of sanding old joint compound, the law has a long arm.
Our radon test is right at the action level, 4 picocuries per liter, but we hardly ever go in the basement. Risk is one thing, exposure to risk is another.
All of the bidders came recommended from the Washington Consumer's Checkbook, but this chemical thing is not something most homeowners look for. I wouldn't have, either, if I wasn't looking for a solution to my dust problem and if the people who answered my post weren't knowledgeable.
And when I get to be 90 [I have a 19% chance of doing that] I will be really taking some risks. Picking a fight with a motorcycle gang comes to mind.
You guys are fun. If you weren't I wouldn't be here.

*** Laboratory says, No asbestos detected in the dust from the sanded joint compound. It's 50% binders, 40% cellulose, 5% fiberglass & 5% glue.
The next thing for me to check is the drop ceiling acoustic tiles which I will soon be replacing.
