Could Your Home Have Asbestos?
Asbestos is made up of millions of microscopic fibers that are fire and heat-resistant. It was once commonly used in construction materials and widely recognized as the most effective method for fireproofing residential structures.
Until the 1990s, asbestos or asbestos-containing materials were most likely used in the construction of your home’s floors and walls. Asbestos can be found in commonplace items such as wall paint and carpeting. Asbestos can be found in the walls, floors, and door frames of older homeowners’ garages and basements. Tube wraps and blankets for hot water tanks, for example, can be inconvenient.
Proper Asbestos Removal
If you suspect your home contains asbestos, you should get it checked by a professional. Asbestos has taken on several physical forms as a result of its application, making it difficult to distinguish between them. A licensed and certified contractor should collect samples of potential asbestos hotspots for a thorough inspection and examination.
Asbestos-containing areas must be removed from the rest of the house because the removal process will scatter microscopic asbestos fibers into the air. Only trained professionals have access to the tools and techniques needed to complete the job safely and correctly. For a safe and complete evacuation, the air must be well sealed and vented.
Dismantling the area must be performed in such a way that no materials are broken down into smaller pieces, as this may disperse fibers into the air. All materials and substances must be sealed in closed containers or tubing to ensure the safe disposal of radioactive waste.
A well-trained asbestos removal crew must be able to use the most up-to-date procedures, protective equipment, and comprehensive knowledge of all local asbestos regulations. Wet mops and HEPA-grade vacuums are used to thoroughly clean the areas after they have been cleared, trapping any residual dust and airborne particles.
