Asbestos refers to a group of naturally occurring minerals often found in a variety of building materials. During construction, repair, renovations or demolitions of a building, any property owner may very well encounter Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM). An ACM could be found in many types of building components, from ductwork, roofing shingles, floor tiles, ceiling tiles, sheetrock, insulation, plaster, adhesives as well as many other building materials.
Asbestos is dangerous as it has a long history of known health risks and has been confirmed as a carcinogen. If an ACM is disturbed or damaged, it will release microscopic fibers into the air. If exposed, these fibers can enter your respiratory system and cause harm. These fibers when inhaled in the respiratory system can cause:
-Cancer of the Esophagus
It’s known to cause cancer. This is one of the many reasons why you should carefully choose a company to perform quality abatement.
What To Do If You Find Asbestos?
If you find it, it is important to leave the material undisturbed and intact. Contact with the material must be avoided. It is advised to test the are as soon as possible to determine the presence for Asbestos. If you suspect it may be present or if the material was disturbed, WRG can provide you with peace of mind by providing an Asbestos assessment survey.
Why Should I perform Asbestos Testing?
Many homes and buildings built before 1986 may very well contain ACM’s. Some of the most common places to find Asbestos materials are; floor tiles, popcorn ceilings, joint compound, duct insulation and roofing materials.
If your property is scheduled to undergo a renovation or demolition, and will impact more than 160 ft.², it is required that you obtain an Asbestos survey, which involves material sampling and analysis. We can provide your property with thorough testing and survey to reveal if any ACM’s are present and if abatement will be necessary.
Asbestos Abatement / Removal
If Asbestos is present in your property, you may not necessarily need to take action. When Asbestos is left undisturbed, the best course of action might be to simply leave the materials intact. However, if your property has Asbestos, which will be impacted by the renovation or demolition, it is wise to consult our qualified team. Asbestos removal involves experience in containing the work area, installing specialized equipment as well as removing and disposing the materials in a safe manner. Professional Asbestos removal will eliminate exposure and reduce liability.
