If you have an older home, there’s a good chance it contains asbestos. Asbestos is a
mineral fiber that was once used in building materials because it is fire-resistant and sound-
insulating. However, it is dangerous to human health when inhaled.

The dangerous material causes respiratory illnesses like mesothelioma, asbestosis, and
lung cancer. As a result, it is essential to have any asbestos material in your home correctly
removed by certified professionals.

A certified asbestos removal company can provide a safe and effective removal process.
They will be able to determine if there is any asbestos in your home and how extensive the
problem is. Certified professionals know where to look for potential asbestos-containing
materials and have the right equipment to safely remove them, including protective gear and
specialized vacuum cleaners.

Here’s what we offer:

1) Inspection

The first step of the removal process is to find out if there is any asbestos in your home. A
certified professional will be able to inspect and test for the presence of asbestos in your
home, helping you make an informed decision about how to move forward.

Some equipment used for testing include:
• X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers to help identify the type of asbestos and how
much is present.
• Microscopes to physically examine the materials for asbestos fibers.

2) Testing

An asbestos testing company can take samples of the materials and analyze them in a
laboratory. This will help determine if there is any asbestos present and the levels of
exposure you may be facing. Some types of asbestos testing include:
• Polarized light microscopy (PLM) to look for asbestos fibers in a sample.
• Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to identify the size and shape of any asbestos
fibers found in the sample.

3) Abatement

Asbestos abatement services involve safely removing asbestos-containing materials from
your home. This includes sealing off the area to ensure no one is exposed to any hazardous
fibers, wetting the material, and then sealing it in a particular container for disposal. Certified
professionals have the proper equipment and safety gear to complete this task safely.

4) Cleanup

Another service offered by an asbestos removal company is cleaning up the area after
abatement. This includes removing the wet material, disposing of it safely, and then
performing an air-quality test to ensure that no asbestos fibers are left behind.

Air testing tools like particle counters and dust sampling equipment can be used to measure
the levels of asbestos in the air. This is essential to ensure your home is safe from potential
asbestos exposure.
