Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos Abatement


Asbestos, once considered the miracle fiber for common building material such as pipe insulation and fire-proofing, is now a known health hazard. Increased awareness of its dangers has produced a flood of federal, state, and local regulations. The decisions you make regarding asbestos are complex. The penalties for a wrong decision are costly; being 99% right is still 100% wrong. You risk health hazards, regulatory fines, and civil court action.

The only way to truly remove the threats that accompany asbestos is to have it removed by a licensed contractor. There are over 3,000 manufactured products that contain asbestos. Most people are unaware that these once commonly-used building materials contain asbestos. Asbestos can only be handled by a professional and a majority of the time the product which contains asbestos must be removed in its entirety. However, there are instances where the asbestos can be encasement or encapsulation.
