Where is Asbestos Found?
Asbestos is typically found in structures that were built prior to the early 1980s. Certain types of asbestos do not burn, conduct heat or conduct electricity. Because of these unique characteristics, these particular types were used in making building materials such as:
• Acoustic ceilings
• Button board
• Duct work
• Lath and plaster
• Tape and mud
• Texture coating
• Transite piping and siding
• Vinyl asbestos tile
• Vinyl sheet goods
Asbestos is often discovered when the material containing the substance is disturbed. This may happen during a renovation, remodeling job, demolition or after a natural disaster. Once the asbestos-containing material is disturbed, abatement is recommended to prevent any potential health threats to the building occupants. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), exposure to asbestos could potentially increase the risk of developing cancer of the lung or other organs.
We offer comprehensive asbestos abatement services ranging from initial investigation through project completion. For each job, we:
• Write and submit a project proposal and budget.
• Coordinate and facilitate an initial asbestos survey and investigation.
• Retrieve samples and test.
• Finalize the work plan.
• Remove asbestos-containing materials using industry approved techniques.
• Track and compile asbestos waste manifests.
• Prepare and submit a close-out package including a final report detailing project activities and necessary documentation.
