Asbestos Testing and Abatement

What is asbestos? “Asbestos refers to a set of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals: Chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. Among these, chrysotile and amosite asbestos are most common.”

For many years asbestos fibers were used in several different commercial, residential and industrial capacities. Asbestos is heat resistance and became the material of choice. For example it can be found in roof shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, cement compounds, textile products, and automotive parts.

Asbestos is regulated due to the fact of how hazardous this mineral is. It is scientifically linked to many health effects. Not only workers are affected but many families.

We offer:

  • Asbestos Inspections
  • Asbestos Disposal
  • Asbestos Abatement

Did you know? Asbestos test should be done on any house built prior to 1980. However, we feel like inspections should be completed on every house.
