A Guide to Asbestos Abatement Procedure, Poplar Tent, North Carolina

Homes built before 1990 are at risk for containing asbestos in their building materials, such as the insulation, walls, or shingles. Once that asbestos is disturbed in any way, it becomes a health hazard to you and your family. Fortunately, professional asbestos abatement services from Concord Asbestos Abatement can safely and thoroughly remove the entire threat from your home in Concord, NC. Understand the strict procedures they follow to ensure that you can feel comfortable in your home.

Understanding Asbestos Abatement

Why It Matters

Asbestos was widely used in construction for a long time because it’s a durable and highly heat-resistant material. It’s normally perfectly safe, but once it’s disturbed, the individual fibers of the material are released into the air. Anyone who breathes these fibers is at risk for fibrotic lung disease. Asbestos has also been determined as the only risk factor for mesothelioma, which is a cancer affecting the tissue lining the chest cavity and the abdomen. These diseases negatively impact the respiratory system and can lead to death.

How It’s Done

asbestos abatementAfter checking for asbestos in your home, professionals will outline a plan for abatement depending on where the material is and how much there is. They will have your family vacate the home—or that section of the home—while they work. They will encapsulate the work area with plastic sheeting so that there’s no risk of stray fibers entering the rest of the home, and will clearly mark off the area as a hazardous zone. Anyone who enters the work area must wear protective clothing and breathing masks.

Professionals will remove all the asbestos, putting it into sealed, heavy-duty containers, then carry it out to a sealed dumpster for removal. The workers’ clothing must be disposed of to prevent contamination. They will clean the area with special vacuums and mop it to remove every fiber of asbestos. They conduct air quality and asbestos testing to ensure the area is safe to return to before taking down the plastic sheeting.
