Asbestos was previously used in building construction for its fire resistance, insulation properties, and solid durability. The mineral is considered highly hazardous and exposure can cause lung cancer or other respiratory ailments. Asbestos may be present in textured coatings, stucco, drywall joint compound, plaster, pipe insulations, floor tiles, vinyl sheet flooring, roofing shingles and other parts of the home. Contact us for asbestos removal services in your home or business.
Although asbestos is a naturally occurring element, it creates substantial health risks. Asbestos that is present in older buildings, manufacturing units, construction sites and warehouses is hazardous and can cause lung cancer and other respiratory ailments.
Asbestos removal in commercial or industrial settings is essential for the health and well-being of occupants and employees that reside or work in these buildings. Asbestos exposure can cause workers to become intensely susceptible to breathing asbestos filled air that affects the overall safety of the working environment. It is mandatory for building owners to mitigate asbestos exposure, contact us for professional commercial asbestos services.
TYPES OF ASBESTOS
Asbestos is a fibrous material that can be made from a number of different base substances. Chrysotile, otherwise known as “White Asbestos” is the most common form of asbestos. Amosite or “Brown Asbestos” was used in construction and insulation materials. Crocidolite that is also called “Blue Asbestos” has been used for steel manufacturing and fire protection. Lastly, Vermiculite is commonly found in attics of residential properties and was a common form of attic insulation. Each type of asbestos material can cause serious health issues and should be remediated immediately.
ASBESTOS REMEDIATION BENEFITS
The Asbestos remediation processes can properly remove and dispose of any present asbestos in your home. Asbestos professionals can work to keep your property safe by ensuring that each step of the remediation process is fully completed. Asbestos remediation services from Lead Stop Specialists can help to improve the resale value of your home or business.
The initial inspection of your property is a vital step towards any asbestos remediation project. Inspecting your property for signs of disrupted asbestos and asbestos materials/building products is the first step towards understanding which area of your home will need remediation services. Attempting your own asbestos inspection can lead to personal injury; increased risks of asbestos-related illnesses and unnecessary property damage. Disrupting asbestos increases asbestos exposure and asbestos-related health risks. Without the proper knowledge, your DIY asbestos inspections can disrupt the asbestos and leave asbestos unfound within your property. It's always best to contact a professional to conduct an asbestos inspection.
Asbestos testing is the next step after signs of asbestos materials have been found in your property. Samples of these materials are taken and sent to a laboratory to be tested and to confirm if there is harmful asbestos present. Lead Stop Specialists uses a provincially accredited lab for all of its sample testing.
If asbestos is not found, the home or business owners can have peace of mind knowing their home is safe from these contaminants. If asbestos is found in the samples, removal processes must begin. Asbestos testing is important to effectively rid your home or business of asbestos.
If the presence of asbestos is confirmed, Lead Stop Specialists will remediate and abate the property of harmful asbestos, improving the overall health and safety of the home or business. The affected areas of the property are completely sealed and contained to prevent further spread of disturbed and possibly airborne particles during the abatement process. Once fully abated, the asbestos is safely disposed of using industry regulated disposal standards. If you have any questions or concerns regarding asbestos removal contact us.
Asbestos Removal Methods
There are several methods to deal with your Asbestos problem. Always have a certified professional to perform any of the following procedures:
Encapsulation: A process that uses a chemical product that penetrates the asbestos-containing material and prevents the fibres from being released.
Containment: Constructing a physical barrier that isolates asbestos-containing materials from adjacent occupied areas in a building. A containment may be built with gypsum board, plywood, or metal sheeting to prevent the release of asbestos fibres into those areas.
Abatement: The complete removal of asbestos-containing materials, including safe handling, transportation, and disposal. Abatement is always the best method to ensure that asbestos fibres are never released.
Lead Stop Specialists provides a complete and comprehensive approach to handling any asbestos-related problem you may have in residential, commercial, or public buildings.
