Dangers of Professional Asbestos Removal

  • Risk of Exposure: Asbestos is a highly carcinogenic mineral that can cause serious health conditions, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and respiratory diseases. Attempting removal without proper protection, equipment, and precision can expose your family to significant health risks.
  • Children at Risk: Children are particularly vulnerable if the area is not properly shielded during the asbestos abatement process.
  • Incomplete Cleanup: Asbestos can be present in various older building materials, making it easy for homeowners to overlook its presence. Some examples of older construction materials known to have contained asbestos in the past include:
    • Roof Shingles & Siding
    • Vermiculite Insulation, Ceiling Tiles & Coatings
    • Popcorn Ceilings
    • Drywall & Cement Sheets
    • Plaster, Putties & Caulking
    • Electrical Switchboard Panels
    • Plumbing Fixtures
    • Pipe & Duct Coverings
    • Thermal Boiler & Fireplace Insulations
    • Vinyl Floor Tiles and more.

Only experienced professionals from restoration companies like Dalworth have the equipment and experience to safely and completely remove asbestos.

Importance of Professional Asbestos Abatement

According to the EPA and the Department of Health and Human Services, there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. The issues include:

  • Hazardous Material: Asbestos is difficult to detect as it is often mixed with other materials such as concrete or asphalt. Therefore, it is crucial to have professionals conduct the necessary tests.
  • Legal Obligation: OSHA and the EPA have guidelines that mandate asbestos inspections and surveys. The EPA specifies that an asbestos inspection must be completed before any demolition or remodeling of a commercial, educational, or multi-unit residential building. OSHA requires asbestos testing and surveys to ensure a safe working environment for occupants and employees. Failure to comply with these guidelines can lead to fines and other penalties. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) now requires proper training for all workers dealing with asbestos in existing buildings.
  • Cities with Asbestos Concerns: Several cities and states have asbestos-containing structures and products. While there are many areas with higher asbestos risks across the country, states with humid environments pose a greater danger of residents encountering asbestos fibers, mold, and mildew in older homes and commercial buildings.

Tips for Hiring the Right Asbestos Abatement Company

  • Not all asbestos abatement companies are the same. Some specialize solely in asbestos abatement, while others offer environmental services, demolition services, and general contracting services that may include abatement. Determine the specific asbestos services you require or request a free inspection before initiating the remediation process.
  • Asbestos abatement regulations vary from state to state and city to city within the U.S. Some regulations go beyond federal laws that require Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) licensing. Familiarize yourself with the laws in your state.
  • Before hiring an asbestos abatement company, verify their qualifications. Choose a company with the appropriate certification and sufficient experience to ensure the best outcome.
