Before we perform asbestos abatement, we begin by taking samples from the building for assessment.
Most people are familiar with asbestos, a material that was commonly used in the construction process for many years. As this naturally occurring mineral has been studied and observed over time, it has been determined that asbestos can create a health concern when used in structures where people live and work. While asbestos on its own isn’t terribly concerning, it does become an issue when disturbed, releasing airborne toxins that are linked to cancerous diseases. Over time, asbestos can also break down and deteriorate, resulting in the release of some of these harmful toxins.
If your home was built before 1985, it is likely that at least some of the materials used contain asbestos. Removing and replacing these materials is the best option to protect yourself and your loved ones, but it’s not something you should tackle on your own. As mentioned, disturbing asbestos can increase the risk of the release of its harmful contaminants, so the removal process must be handled by a skilled professional.
