Questions About Asbestos Removal

Asbestos has long been known as a material for electrical and building insulation. However, in recent years there has been a need to remediate and remove materials with asbestos in it because it poses a serious health risk. There has been an increase in businesses that specialize in the testing and removal of it. To ensure safe asbestos abatement, there are a few questions to ask before safeguarding your home or building.

  • Why should I be concerned about asbestos?
    Asbestos is found in many building materials such as shingles, ceiling tiles and cement. It is a known carcinogen and demolition of these products causes them to become airborne. The particles can be inhaled into the lungs and create harmful, long term health hazards.

  • If I’m unsure, how can I test for asbestos?
    Call a certified professional to take a sample and test for a positive identification of asbestos at an accredited laboratory. If a positive test comes back, it may be necessary to remediate the offending material.

  • How much does it cost to inspect for and remove asbestos?
    An initial inspection done by an independent contractor can range for an average sized house, and the cost will often include lab testing fees. To remove a section of pipe or a ceiling also varies from company to company. To completely remove asbestos throughout an entire house or building, will often cost thousands of dollars.

  • What is asbestos encapsulation?
    Encapsulation refers to putting a protective shell around asbestos to remediate exposure to particles that may seep into the air.

  • Is encapsulation better than abatement?
    Encapsulation is more cost-effective than abatement and less of a health hazard to due the lack of airborne particles. However, if materials such as pipes, ceilings or tiles are not in good condition, a professional should be contacted to remove them.
