The Danger of Asbestos Abatement
Asbestos abatement is essential for older homes where the asbestos has been disturbed or damaged. Once asbestos fibers are inside your lungs, they adhere to the lining and become trapped. These fibers live for a long time and they can’t be dissolved or broken down by natural processes.
Our team will test for asbestos and neutralize the risks your family or your staff can face in a potentially dangerous building. While everyone is exposed to small amounts of asbestos over their lifetime, those who are exposed to it on a regular basis are the most at risk. That’s why it’s so important that the right equipment and steps are taken for asbestos removal from a building by a trained professional. It’s not worth the risk to try to remove it on your own.
For a complete asbestos abatement, the work area needs to be isolated from the rest of the room and contained. A HEPA unit is attached to the containment area which keeps airborne asbestos fibers from leaving the area. A decontamination unit is set up for our staff so that fibers aren’t transported out of the area. During the process the asbestos is kept wet and when the asbestos has been removed, the air is sampled to confirm that it is safe before the containment area is taken down.
