Asbestos Information

Thanks to the media and education resources, asbestos is now being discussed more than ever. However, this doesn’t mean people know everything they should know about asbestos exposure and asbestos removal. Disaster Cleanup Services will discuss five things you need to know about asbestos removal. This will better prepare you in the event you need asbestos removed from your property.

There Are Rules and Regulations Surrounding Asbestos Removal

Asbestos removal comes with specific rules and regulations. Asbestos removal must be done by a professional who has the proper licenses for the safe removal and disposal of the hazardous fiber. If you are caught knowingly removing or attempting to dispose of asbestos without the proper licenses, you could be fined or face jail time. Asbestos is incredibly hazardous to your health, and these rules are in place to ensure the safety of everyone in the vicinity.

Asbestos Removal Can Be Extensive and Take Time

Asbestos removal isn’t a fast process. Depending on the amount of asbestos-containing materials, asbestos removal could take more than a day to complete. Asbestos removal involves sealing areas, removing the materials, and using equipment to ensure no fibers escape the sealed room. It is important that the process is not rushed, as asbestos fibers can easily expose people in the area.

You Will Need To Leave The Premises

Asbestos professionals will ask you to leave the premises, taking any pets with you. This is for the safety of everyone. Asbestos removal companies use special suits and equipment to ensure no one is exposed during removal. If people are present on the property, there is always a chance of exposure. You will not be able to return until the asbestos-containing materials are fully removed from the property.

Asbestos Could Be In Newly Built Properties

Asbestos is not just being found in older buildings and homes. We are seeing asbestos-containing materials in newly built properties. This is a major concern because most people do not realize a newly built home might contain asbestos. This can result in asbestos exposure, which could lead to severe illnesses in the future.

Asbestos Exposure Can Occur If Removal Is Not Completed By A Certified Professional

As we stated above, asbestos exposure is a significant concern when handling asbestos-containing materials. If a certified professional is not removing the asbestos, your chances of exposure are very high. Regular people do not have the proper equipment to remove asbestos in a safe manner.
