Home > Asbestos Removal

If you reside in a house or work in a building constructed in the 1980s or earlier, or if you are considering renovating or demolishing such a structure, you are likely to be exposed to asbestos.

Even though asbestos is no longer used in new constructions, many buildings built before the 1980s still contain this hazardous mineral. Asbestos is well-known for causing various severe health conditions, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and respiratory diseases.

Express Water Damage Restoration has been offering professional asbestos removal services in Austin, Texas; San Francisco, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Dallas, Texas; and other locations served throughout the United States for the past four decades.

We are a licensed general contractor specializing in residential and commercial construction and restoration throughout the United States. Our technicians are certified by the IICRC, an organization that sets industry standards for inspection, cleaning, and restoration.

Asbestos in Your Home/Residential Property


During renovation or demolition of older buildings, asbestos fibers become airborne and pose a health risk.

Natural Disaster

Exposure to asbestos can occur due to wind, rain, or storm damage to the house.

Areas/Materials Prone to Asbestos

Parts of your property that may contain asbestos include:

  • Drywall
  • Tiles
  • Roofingshingles
  • Insulation in the roof, attic, ductwork, electrical wiring, and pipes
  • Siding
  • Artificial ashes and embers sold for use in gas-fired fireplaces
  • Older products such as stove-top pads
  • Walls and floors around wood-burning stoves may be protected with asbestos paper, millboard, or cement sheets
  • Some vinyl floor tiles, and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives
  • Hot water and steam pipes in older houses with an asbestos material or covered with an asbestos blanket or tape
  • Asbestos insulation for oil and coal furnaces and door gaskets
  • Boilers
  • Soundproofing or decorative material


In the past, brakes, clutches, and other car parts were manufactured using asbestos-containing products. Individuals who work on their vehicles in their home garage may be at risk of inhaling asbestos fibers.

Asbestos in Your Commercial Property/Industrial Sites

Commercial properties and industrial sites are the primary sources of asbestos exposure. Occupational exposure is the leading cause of asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma and asbestos cancer. Common work sites with asbestos include aluminum plants, brewing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, power plants, steel mills, and schools. People who return home from working at such sites increase the risk of secondary exposure for their household members.

Why Professional Asbestos Removal is Crucial

According to the EPA and the Department of Health and Human Services, THERE IS NO SAFE LEVEL OF EXPOSURE TO ASBESTOS.

Hazardous Material

Asbestos is difficult to detect since it is often mixed with other materials like concrete or asphalt. Therefore, it is crucial to have professionals conduct the necessary tests.

Homeowners should never attempt to repair or remove asbestos-containing materials on their own. Disturbing these materials can release microscopic asbestos fibers into the air, putting anyone who inhales them at risk of developing debilitating asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma.

Legal Obligation

Both OSHA and the EPA have guidelines that mandate asbestos inspections and surveys. The EPA specifically requires an asbestos inspection to be completed before any demolition or remodel of a commercial, educational, or multi-unit residential building. OSHA mandates asbestos testing and surveys to ensure a safe working environment for occupants and employees. Failure to meet these guidelines can result in fines and other penalties. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) now requires proper training for all workers who deal with asbestos in existing buildings.

Asbestos-Prone Cities

Several larger cities and states, including Colorado, have a significant presence of asbestos structures and products. While there are areas across the nation with a higher concentration of asbestos threats, states with wet settings pose a higher risk of residents encountering asbestos fibers as well as mold and mildew spores in older homes and other commercial buildings.
