Asbestos is a hazardous fiber that is all over the media. It is known for being bad, but what happens when you need asbestos abatement for your home? How does Asbestos Abatement Services keep you and your family safe from asbestos exposure? Below we will discuss some of the protocols we use to keep ourselves and you safe from asbestos exposure.
What is Asbestos Abatement?
Asbestos abatement is the method of removing asbestos-containing materials from your home or business. The process is thorough and takes time because of the precautions that must be taken to ensure safety. Before asbestos abatement begins, we do an asbestos test to find the areas that contain the asbestos. From there we ask that you vacate the premises for the abatement process.
Safety and Asbestos
Our team of certified asbestos abatement professionals seal off the area we are working on to ensure fibers do not escape through the air, vents, or ducts. Our team will use special suits and respirators to ensure our safety throughout the process. We then use air filtration to catch any microscopic asbestos fibers that may float in the air. Once we begin the removal process, the asbestos-containing materials are put into leak-proof containers that are sealed before leaving the area. Once we have completed the area, we will remove the sealed containers and legally dispose of the asbestos-containing materials.
To dispose of the asbestos, you need special licenses and certifications. Once we complete the entire home or business, we will sanitize the area and do another lab test to make sure all the asbestos has been removed. Once cleared, you may return to the home or business.
Our number one goal is your safety, and we take it very seriously. Asbestos abatement should only be completed by licensed, insured, and certified professionals. This is for the protection of you, us, and everyone close to the area.
