Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made up of bundled fibers that was used for insulation not affected by heat or chemicals in buildings built between 1930s – 1970s. The EPA declared it a hazardous air pollutant and it was banned. If you discover asbestos on your building materials, do not touch it. Any materials containing asbestos pose no threat if undisturbed. If removal is necessary, leave it to the professionals.
Our team is trained and experienced in asbestos abatement. We are equipped to handle materials with asbestos and ensure it is disposed of properly so as to prevent exposure of asbestos. Exposure to asbestos happens through inhalation or ingestion of fibers that become airborne after being disturbed.
Asbestos abatement may be needed if your property was affected by a natural disaster or you are wanting to remodel and the building materials contain asbestos. It may also be needed if asbestos materials are deteriorating as a result of age or wear and tear.
