What is Asbestos & Where is it Found
So you may be wondering two things, what exactly is asbestos and where was it actually used. Since asbestos is in so many products that were used to build, it is literally almost everywhere in older structures. It can be used as a fire retardant and it can be found in pipes, ceiling tiles, siding, drywall, and even insulation and paint products. The dangerous substance was banned in the United States back in 1978 and that is when asbestos was found to be extremely toxic and dangerous to your health. The government did allow the building industry to continue using asbestos if they had it in their current building inventory. That caused some buildings and properties to have asbestos even up to as late as 1986. Therefore, it is very important that if you are wondering about a potential asbestos contamination in an older building that you get it thoroughly and professionally inspected by our qualified asbestos abatement team.
Typically an asbestos issue will arise while there is a remodeling project underway on an older home or commercial building. It is always a mandatory situation regulated by OSHA that any asbestos samples be properly collected and tested by an asbestos certified testing laboratory. If the substance is found it is extremely important that the asbestos abatement or asbestos removal process be performed by only a licensed removal company. Our staff at Environmental Pros is top notch and holds all of the necessary licenses and certificates to perform any and all asbestos removal jobs.
Through the process of asbestos abatement, there are several important steps and guidelines that need to be followed. The first and most important procedure is during the asbestos removal process the team makes sure that the asbestos doesn't contaminate any other areas. This includes general areas of the building and possible general public that may be nearby. Our asbestos removal team always has all of the safety devices to protect them as well in the removal process. Not only do we take all of the necessary precautions to ensure a safe asbestos abatement project but we are careful to dispose of all of the dangerous materials according to government guidelines. These guidelines are provided to our team by OSHA which is the governing agency that oversees the asbestos removal process.
Sometimes the asbestos substance is actually accidentally found and that is really not that uncommon. Certain situations can occur that will expose asbestos when you least expect it. Circumstances such as a flood that happens because of a plumbing issue or even a large tree falling into a building from a wind storm can expose asbestos that was unknown. During the period of time that the cleanup or repair of the damaged area is when the asbestos is typically found. Exposing walls to clean up water and repairing roofs or walls can show the presence of asbestos. It is at that time that the repair or restoration project would be stopped and samples would then be collected to identify if it is asbestos or not. Once the asbestos is identified, our professional team puts together a game plan or a specific timeline so that all parties are aware of the asbestos removal process. After the timeline is in place Environmental Pros pulls all the necessary permits and takes complete control of the asbestos removal job from there. We do all the water remediation if necessary and bring the property back to its ability to be occupied and safe. Once all is complete, we are provided the certificates of occupancy so that the property can then be used again.
It's well known now that asbestos can be a serious danger for humans if consumed. If it is inhaled, it can cause all kinds of lung illnesses. Mesothelioma, asbestosis and even lung cancer have been connected to the inhalation of asbestos materials. Our highly trained team are educated to understand the importance of the removal of the hazardous material and aware of signs that someone may be affected due to exposure. We understand the urgency of the asbestos removal process and work diligently to ensure safety for all.
