If you live in a home built in the 1970s or 1980s, an asbestos examination and abatement procedure are required. Your attic may contain
asbestos insulation, as asbestos was a widely used substance for thermal insulation in older homes. Additionally, it is used in water pipes,
air ducts, acoustic ceilings, mastics, and laminate flooring. Following the discovery of asbestos’ dangers, contractors and builders began
incorporating alternate materials into current and newer dwellings.
Asbestos is typically white in colour, and each fibre is small yet composed of numerous microscopic fibres. Due to the microscopic size of
asbestos, it is virtually invisible to the naked eye. When it was originally employed in conjunction with air conditioning, the microscopic
filaments were discovered to be hazardous.
Generally, asbestos is not as harmful as it is when it is not disturbed. However, when asbestos insulation is used to insulate air ducts, the
air conditioning causes the duct to condense. The asbestos substance will absorb water, disintegrate, rust, and corrode, releasing fibres
into the air.
The only safe and dependable method of asbestos removal is through an abatement procedure. If the fibres are removed, asbestos is
prevented from diffusing into the air and entering your respiratory system. Asbestos abatement is not a do-it-yourself project; it is a home
maintenance operation that you should leave to a licenced professional. Asbestos abatement companies will establish containment
zones, use safety gear, and purify the air during the removal procedure with an air filtering system.
Plan Your Asbestos Removal Procedure
When you first suspect the presence of asbestos in your house, the ideal time to schedule your abatement operation is immediately. If
your home was built in the 1970s or 1980s, it is recommended that you schedule an inspection prior to scheduling an abatement. If your
home was constructed during the 1980s, you can still schedule an inspection to guarantee that it is asbestos-free. A thorough examination
and abatement are always prudent, and Asbestos Removal 247 is the team to call. We’ll safeguard the safety of your family and loved
ones from asbestos.
