How do I know I need to have my floor tested?

Usually, we’ll a business will get in touch after a complaint or a property inspection has identified a floor surface as being dangerous. However, you might want to test a new floor before opening it to the general public too. It’s better to err on the side of caution and get your floor tested anyway.
