Asbestos was once considered as a miracle product thanks to its strength, thermal insulation qualities and resistance to fire. At the beginning of the 20th century, manufacturers and builders took advantage of these qualities by using it in paint, insulation, siding, cement, floor tiles and even cigarettes.
By the 1970s, scientists confirmed that asbestos was behind thousands of cases of lung scarring and cancer. In 1981 the United States banned asbestos from building and manufacturing. Despite the ban, asbestos can still be found in many older homes and buildings.

When asbestos breaks down or becomes disturbed due to renovations, contact or demolition, fibers are released into the air. They can be inhaled by family members or tenants. Asbestos is undetectable to the naked eye and the fibers (about 18,000 percent thinner than a human hair) can remain in the environment for years. In order to properly and safely remove these fibers requires hiring a professional asbestos removal company.
The Asbestos Removal Process
Before we start, we take the time to develop a safe work plan and then communicate our plan to both you and our team. The process begins with an initial assessment of your situation, including asbestos testing if necessary. We then develop a work plan that includes all notification requirements and safety procedures.
Next, to ensure the safety of occupants, we carefully remove all movable item and cover non-movable objects and walls, floors and ceilings to seal off the site. Once the site is properly prepared, we remove any material in special disposal bags, which are placed into special protective units and removed from the site.
The area is then thoroughly cleaned, including multiple wet-wipe cleanings and HEPA vacuuming. We then perform a thorough inspection, and air samples are taken to make ensure the complete removal of asbestos from your environment.
