The Asbestos Removal Process Is Best Left To The Experts

Asbestos was once a well-used building insulation material, but its discovery as toxic and a health hazard has prompted property owners to hire professionals to perform an asbestos removal process. Because asbestos is so dangerous and can cause severe health problems such as cancer, property owners should only trust professionals with extensive experience in the asbestos removal process. Contractors have the necessary removal and safety equipment to thoroughly eradicate and dispose of the dangerous material.

Asbestos is a banned and dangerous building material

Asbestos has been found to cause severe illnesses in humans such as cancer and has been outright banned by most municipalities in construction. Some older properties may still have asbestos in the walls and removing it is essential in maintaining the health and safety of the property. The dangerous effects of breathing in asbestos dust prompts many owners to turn to a professional who has the right knowledge and equipment to completely and effectively remove all the material from the property.

Where owners of older homes can typically find asbestos

Owners of older homes built during the asbestos era can find the material in many locations throughout the property:

  • Pipe and electrical wire insulation
  • Fireplace pads
  • Acoustic and drop ceiling tiles
  • Roof felt and shingles
  • Flooring under sheets and flooring adhesive
  • Window putty
  • Main panel electrical boxes
  • Stucco
  • Wall and attic insulation
  • Insulation for electrical outlets and switches
  • Downpipes and gutters made from asbestos cement
  • Furnace and hot water tank installations
  • Outside deck under sheeting
  • Older patching and joint compounds used in repairs

Professionals with experience understand the asbestos removal process

There are detailed steps to ensure the successful completion of any asbestos removal project:

  1. A hazardous materials survey is completed by a consultant to determine if there is asbestos present. Samples are collected and tested at a lab for asbestos confirmation.
  2.  A report is sent back to the owners which will confirm or deny the presence of asbestos at the property. Upon confirmation, the owner’s next essential step is hiring a professional contractor, such as Matrix Remediation, to carry out the removal.
  3. The contractor commences removal and disposal of any asbestos at the property. This process may include locating more pockets of the material which will be removed during the project. Professionals like Matrix Remediation will make sure all areas of asbestos are located and removed responsibly.
  4. A third party consultant will retest the air quality to determine if all the material was removed and the air quality is acceptable.

Asbestos can be a very dangerous material with adverse and severe health effects and should only be removed by experts who understand the safety and equipment needs of this complex job.

Thanks for the professional work. We were going to deal with the mold removal ourselves and realized it was a bad idea. Your crew really knows what they are doing. Our place is spotless – and they even gave us some good household tips. I have no problem in recommending Matrix.

Thank you for coming to the rescue. I didn’t quite know how dangerous asbestos could be, but I knew it had to be removed completely and properly. Thanks for the professional touch – I feel much better now that the house is clean and safe. I hope I never have to use this service again.
