Keeping Our Clients & Their Homes Safe
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material found in six types of minerals. It was often used in flame retardants, thermal system insulation, and other materials found in older buildings created before the ’80s. However, recent studies link asbestos exposure to serious conditions such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. In fact, it kills an average of 5,000 people every year.

Common asbestos abatement methods include:
- Covering (enclosure)- During this method, we seal off the area containing asbestos by covering it. For exposed insulation piping, we can use a proactive jacket or wrap.
- Sealing (encapsulation) - Sealing involves applying a sealant to the affected materials, which binds the asbestos fibers together or boats the fibers to eliminate the dangers.
