Where Can I Find Asbestos And When Can It Be A Problem?

Commercial Asbestos Abatement

The sign on your drywall reads, “DANGER: CONTAINS ASBESTOS, A Recognized CARCINOGEN,” or it would in a perfect world. In an ideal world, neither the sign nor the presence of asbestos in your home will be appropriate. Unfortunately, asbestos can be contained in a number of locations around the building, and the contaminated products are often not labelled. Fortunately, information is available.

For thousands of years, asbestos has been mined all over the world. Asbestos-related health issues have been known for almost as long, with some cases dating back to Ancient Rome. Even so, it took the medical profession until the early 1900s for the general public to recognize the risks that asbestos posed to those who were exposed to it. Despite doctors’ warnings, asbestos production grew in tandem with demand for the fire-resistant, sound-insulating content. At one point, the US military also made it mandatory for all branches of the military to use asbestos.  As a result of what can only be described as willful negligence on the part of mining firms and manufacturers, asbestos has found its way into anything from automobiles to garments to building materials all over the world.  The first attempts by manufacturers and the general public to step away from the widespread use of asbestos in building and manufacturing occurred in the 1970s, but asbestos use in construction was not fully phased out in the United States until the 1980s. As a result, asbestos is still present in many homes.

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 spoke with Mrs. Victoria over the phone, and I cannot express how helpful and knowledgeable she was when it came to all my questions regarding asbestos. I look forward to working with her and the company in the near future. Highly recommend Five Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I highly recommend ES-America's services. Knowing very little about asbestos, I researched widely and called many companies. Sarah and Elias by far surpassed their competition. For me, ES out-shined others with their commitment and excitement about their chosen expertise (all about asbestos). On our first call, Sarah answered my questions quickly and thoroughly, which prompted deeper questions that I had not asked other companies (because the reps seemed lacking in knowledge or interest). With other companies, I felt the need to continue searching. With Sarah, I hired ES after the first call. Elias came the next day and was just as enthusiastic and competent. He worked quickly and then expertly taped over and cleaned up the test areas. The test results arrived within hours - and thankfully were all negative. Last note: their pricing seems competitive.
