Why You Need Our Asbestos Abatement Services:
If you have purchased or are renting an older home, you may be wondering if you need to be concerned about asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used in homebuilding and in many other products for years until adverse health effects including lung cancer and other lung diseases began turning up, sometimes long after initial exposure. Use of asbestos was banned in homebuilding in the late 70’s.
Guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission are that asbestos does not pose a risk unless it is “friable,” meaning it is beginning to flake or crumble. Most recommendations suggest leaving it alone if not friable, and that asbestos removal should be considered a last resort, as it poses more risk of contaminating the surrounding environment. If asbestos is friable, removal becomes necessary. If not, the recommendation is to “encapsulate” the areas against possible damage, which means enclosing the asbestos in a protective coating or building a structure around it.
