Your Guide to Asbestos Abatement

What Is It?

asbestos abatementAbatement is designed to eliminate the threat of asbestos poisoning indoors. When existing asbestos is disturbed in any way, it causes tiny particles to release into the air. If asbestos particles make their way into your lungs, you may be at risk of developing multiple types of cancer, as well as other respiratory ailments. Short- and long-term exposure are dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Asbestos abatement removes the substance thoroughly to protect the quality of your air.

How Does It Work?

After an initial inspection, your home will be sprayed down with water in an attempt to weigh down and eliminate airborne fibers. Then, the abatement experts will retrieve a test sample to bring back for laboratory work, which will show whether asbestos is present. If so, the area will be sealed off completely and entered by hazmat-suited professionals. They will use large vacuum fans fitted with high-efficiency particulate air filters to suck the air out of the room. Once the airborne fibers have been stopped from spreading, they can remove any already-damaged material and dispose of it completely.
