Asbestos Abatement

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a material that was widely used in a multitude of products because of its durability and heat resistance until the 1970s, when researchers began discovering the health risks associated with asbestos exposure. Asbestos is now widely recognized as a carcinogen, and exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer.

Asbestos in Modern Homes

Even today, more than 30 years after it was banned in new construction materials, it is not uncommon to find homes, buildings, and schools built before 1980 that contain asbestos. While there is no safe level of asbestos exposure, most experts agree that it is not harmful unless it is disturbed, such as during demolition or flood damage. At that point, a certified asbestos abatement team will need to come in to remove the hazardous materials and test the area for contamination. 

Asbestos-Containing Materials

It is not possible to tell whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it. An AHERA certified building inspector or a professional asbestos abatement contractor will be able to take the necessary samples and have them evaluated. However, asbestos is commonly found in these materials.

What to Expect During the Asbestos Removal Process


We set up a highly regulated work area, sealing off air ducts, disabling HVAC systems, setting up negative air pressure equipment, and covering surfaces not being treated for asbestos. This is done to prevent any asbestos fibers from escaping the area.


Using abatement suits and personal air monitoring equipment, our team will manually remove the asbestos-containing materials, sealing them in special asbestos disposal bags. We dispose of the waste according to government and safety regulations.


All surfaces are wet wiped and HEPA vacuumed to ensure any lingering asbestos particles in the air are removed. We take air and surface samples and have them independently tested before removing our containment barriers and allowing occupants to return. 


Asbestos Abatement is a Permanent Solution!

Because professional asbestos abatement completely removes the hazard from the area and eliminates the potential for future exposure, it is a permanent solution that will never have to be repeated on the same area.
