Asbestos is becoming more and more known as it is seen in the media and as more people become diagnosed with asbestos-related illnesses. With more knowledge, people are making the right choices and having their homes checked for asbestos-containing materials. Disaster Cleanup Services provides asbestos removal services to properties. If you believe your home contains asbestos, you should have it checked, as you cannot see asbestos. Asbestos fibers are tiny and cannot be seen. Below we will discuss the asbestos removal process.

Asbestos Testing

Certified asbestos removal contractors complete asbestos testing. The test is comprehensive, and samples are taken from all areas of your property. The samples are then sent to the lab where they are tested for asbestos fibers. This is the only way to know for sure if asbestos is on your property.

Asbestos Removal Process

The asbestos removal process is very delicate. It would be best if you only had a certified, and licensed asbestos contractor remove asbestos from your property. The asbestos removal specialists will have the proper tools, knowledge, suits, and disposal licenses. Disposing of this particularly hazardous mineral without the proper licensing is illegal. If you are looking for these specific services, it is crucial that you choose a certified and insured contractor. They will seal off areas of your property to ensure no fibers escape and become ingested. The asbestos removal process usually takes a few days, depending on the extent of asbestos and the size of your property. Once finished, your asbestos contractor will check the property to ensure it is asbestos free. During asbestos removal, you will not be allowed on to the property. This is for your safety, as asbestos exposure can be deadly.

If you are unsure if your property contains asbestos, contact your local asbestos removal company. They will be able to inspect your property and determine if your property needs asbestos removal.
