Chances are you have at least some amount of asbestos lurking in your home regardless of when your property was built. Living with asbestos is not a death sentence but removing or disturbing it can lead to serious health complications if it is not done correctly. Testing is necessary, regardless of the year. Drywall, tile, popcorn ceiling, or even pipes could be an affected area.
Any disturbance to asbestos-containing products can release asbestos fibers into the air. These fibers, when inhaled, can lead to serious health complications if not done properly. This is why professional abatement services exist, to keep you and your family safe.
A professional abatement team will contain, remove and dispose of building materials and other sources of asbestos in your home according to state and federal regulations. For the safety of your family and the contractors handling your remodel, these workers will remove all affected materials from the area before work begins.
Asbestos was, and is to this day, an extremely popular product due to its fire-retardant and insulating nature regardless of the year it was built. It was used in a variety of building materials and fixtures, including:
– Pipe insulation
– Glues and binders
– Roof tiles
