Asbestos in your home: 10 areas to look

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that, when disrupted, can emit microscopic fibers into the air. These fibers get embedded in the mesothelium, or thin covering that protects the chest, belly, and heart cavities, if inhaled or swallowed. Prolonged exposure will cause inflammation and, in the worst-case scenario, cancerous tumors such as mesothelioma.

May be found in buildings built between the 1930s and the 1980s. Throughout the design of architecture in the globe, thousands of consumer items containing this material are utilized. Asbestos still exists in many structures today, which exposes individuals to hazardous substances in their homes, workplaces and classrooms:

• Air duct coverings

• Automobile clutches and brakes

• Door gaskets

• Exterior window panels

Residential Asbestos Removal

• Floor and walls around wood-burning stoves

• Gutters

• Heat-resistant fabrics

• Hot water and steam pipes coated with asbestos material

• Insulation

• Oil, coal furnaces, and door gaskets with asbestos insulation

• Pipes

• Popcorn ceilings

• Roofing and siding shingles

• Textured paint and patching compounds on walls and ceilings

• Vinyl floor tiles, vinyl sheet flooring, and adhesives

• Water tank

It is the duty to ensure proper asbestos disposal whether you are the owner, manager, or contractor of a building with contaminated material inside. Otherwise, it’s criminal, even though it is by mistake, and businesses will face fines of hundreds of thousands of dollars for corporate negligence.

Elias and crew were great to work with. Their estimate was in-line with others I received, but they were much faster in both getting me on their schedule and completing the work than the others. They did a fantastic job and I’d use them again in a heartbeat.

I am very pleased with the work performed by Environmental Services Of America. Elias came out to look at a job, talked to me through it until I understood the entire process. They showed up on the schedule day and worked till the job was done. Elias sent pictures of the progress every day and when I got back to the house it was perfectly clean, they could not have done a better job.
