What is asbestos?
A mineral that’s found in specific rock formations, asbestos is not only fire-, heat-, and corrosion-resistant, but it’s also a great insulation material. Undisturbed asbestos doesn’t usually pose a risk to your health. However, when a human is exposed to asbestos that’s been disturbed, causing the fibers to be released into the air and inhaled, that’s when you have a problem.
Durable and able to remain in the body for many years, exposure to asbestos fibers can cause lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
What can you expect during asbestos abatement?
Asbestos removal must be done in a very specific and contained manner to maintain safety for everyone involved. This includes sealing off the entire work area with critical barriers and installing and maintaining negative air machines with HEPA air filters to guarantee the asbestos fibers don’t leave the containment area. If materials containing asbestos aren’t properly removed and disposed of, they pose a threat to your health and can lead to significant additional costs to decontaminate asbestos after it is released or disturbed improperly.
After finishing asbestos abatement, you can expect documentation from us outlining the work performed and all procedures followed. We will work with your independent asbestos inspector/monitor to conduct a stringent clearance process to guarantee any asbestos dangers are entirely gone before the area is re-occupied.
