Asbestos is a dangerous mineral that causes many diseases. It has found its way into many homes because it was, in the past, used to help fire proof buildings. Now that its dangers are known, its use in construction is no longer allowed, but the mineral still remains in older homes, killing many people every year. That’s why we test for and remove asbestos from homes and commercial buildings. If you’re worried about lead, look no further. We remove lead, too! We work in both residential homes and commercial buildings.
Q Can I Remove Asbestos Myself?

No! The stakes are too high. Without experience, it is very easy to release asbestos particles into the air. Those then can get stuck in your lungs, or the lungs of those around you, endangering yourself to diseases caused by asbestos. Removing asbestos in a way that could release particles is very easy to do when trying to remove asbestos when inexperienced, and would be against the whole point of removing the asbestos.

Q My home is new. Is it likely for it to contain asbestos?

It depends on how new your home is. The use of asbestos in popcorn ceilings was outlawed in 1977, for example. But contractors were still allowed to use their extra supplies until it ran out. Because of this, homes with popcorn ceilings that were built before 1990 may contain asbestos in the ceiling, even though it was banned a while before that. Make sure to factor that sort of thing in when trying to figure out if your home is likely to contain asbestos. If you still are in doubt, you can call us to ask.
