Everything You Need to Know About Asbestos Abatement

According to some experts, there are about 10,000 Americans that die every year due to exposure to asbestos. Because of the health hazards that it brings, some health organizations are pushing to ban the use of asbestos especially on home construction.

Yet, a lot of people would still make use of asbestos for home construction since it has properties that make it great for insulation. Using asbestos is not really a problem but the problem comes when it becomes damaged and the asbestos fibers will be exposed to the air inside your home. When you or any of your family members will inhale it, it could lead to serious lung related diseases, including lung cancer.

So if you think you have some asbestos in your home insulation, then you should hire Indoor Air Care, for we are the experts when it comes to asbestos removal/abatement services.

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a fibrous material that is heat resistant. It is commonly woven into fabrics and is often used as an insulating material for home construction as well as brake linings. Despite the danger that asbestos brings, it is still commonly used in the construction of commercial and residential buildings. It comes with strong insulating properties that make it a perfect material for insulation.

It is very popular since the 1970s, but when people soon discovered the danger that it brings, they have stopped using it for their home insulation. But for those who already have the asbestos insulation in their home, we at Indoor Air Care can provide asbestos removal/abatement service. The process would require removing all those products in your home which contains such dangerous material.

What are the Dangers That Come With Asbestos Exposure?

A lot of homeowners are still not aware of the health hazards that the asbestos brings. Inhalation of the asbestos fibers can actually trigger serious diseases on the lungs as well as other organs and they may not appear until after several years of exposure to the material. For example, asbestos can lead to the development of scar like tissues on the lungs which can result to a loss of lung function that might even lead to fatality.

It is estimated that the symptoms will show up only after 10 to 20 years right after the exposure to the material. The asbestos fibers that can trigger these health hazards are too small to be seen, so it’s not as if you can avoid inhaling it. So before you or any of your family members suffer from those dreaded diseases as a result of asbestos inhalation, you better contact us for inquiries on our asbestos removal/abatement services.

What is Asbestos Abatement?

Asbestos abatement is the process of removing the asbestos material out of your home insulation. This process should be done by trained specialists, although some homeowners would often make the mistake of removing the asbestos themselves in an effort to save some money. But the job is not that easy and should not be taken lightly since there are serious dangers that come with it.

We provide professional asbestos removal/abatement service. We are composed of a team of professionals that are well trained for the job and are knowledgeable on how to properly remove the asbestos material safely.

Before we even begin with the job, we will inspect your home property and remove everything that has asbestos in them. We will make use of some specialized tools and gadgets to make the job easier and safer and we will also wear protective clothing and gears for our own safety as well.

What Happens When You Hire Us?

When you hire us for the asbestos removal/abatement service, we will visit your home and perform the necessary inspections. We will collect samples in order to test if your indoor air is exposed to asbestos fibers. After that, we will perform microscopic examinations to check if the products have some asbestos in them.

Once we have detected the presence of asbestos, we will then come up with the best solution to address these issues. If we think that your insulation is badly damaged, then we will recommend an insulation removal and replacement. But if the insulation is still in good condition, yet there are some asbestos fibers that were exposed to your indoor air, we will suggest a total replacement of the insulation since there is a possibility that there are some damages to it which have caused the asbestos fibers to be released to the air.

Those who are thinking of removing and replacing the insulation themselves should better think twice. Improper removal of products that contain asbestos is extremely dangerous since it is a heavily regulated substance, so do not put your life at risk.
