Asbestos Remediation and Removal Services for Residential and Commercial Properties

The harmful health effects of asbestos are well documented and prolonging exposure increases the chance to develop an asbestos-related disease. These diseases include fibrotic lung disease (asbestosis), changes in the lining of the pleura (chest cavity), reduced respiratory function, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Frequently Asked Questions

The only way to determine whether a material contains asbestos is to have it tested by a qualified laboratory. The EPA recommends testing suspect materials if they are damaged (fraying or crumbling) or if you are planning a renovation that would disturb the suspect material. Samples should be taken by a properly trained and accredited asbestos professional (inspector).

Asbestos that is in good condition and left undisturbed is unlikely to present a health risk. The risks from asbestos occur when it is damaged or disturbed where asbestos fibers become airborne and can be inhaled. Managing asbestos in place and maintaining it in good repair is often the best approach.

If you have vermiculite insulation in your home, you should assume this material may be contaminated with asbestos and be aware of steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from exposure to asbestos. The EPA recommends that vermiculite insulation be left undisturbed. Airborne asbestos fibers present a health risk through inhalation, so the first step is to not disturb the material, which could release fibers into the air. If you disturb the insulation, you may inhale some asbestos fibers. The degree of health risk depends on how much and how often this occurred. If you choose to remove the vermiculite insulation, this work should be done by a trained and accredited asbestos abatement contractor that is separate and independent from the company that performed the assessment of the vermiculite insulation to avoid any conflict of interest.

Removal of the vermiculite insulation may not be necessary if it is confined in a manner where it will be left undisturbed. If you choose to have the vermiculite insulation removed, the EPA recommends that you use a trained and accredited asbestos contractor that is separate and independent from the company that performed the assessment of the vermiculite insulation to avoid any conflict of interest.

On July 12, 1989, the EPA issued a final rule under Section 6 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) banning most asbestos-containing products in the United States. In 1991, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated and remanded the rule. As a result, most of the original ban on the manufacture, importation, processing, or distribution in commerce for most of the asbestos-containing product categories originally covered in the 1989 final rule was overturned. Only the bans on corrugated paper, rollboard, commercial paper, specialty paper, and flooring felt and any new uses of asbestos remained banned under the 1989 rule. Although most asbestos-containing products can still legally be manufactured, imported, processed, and distributed in the U. S. , according to the U. S. Geological Survey, the production and use of asbestos has declined significantly.

Federal asbestos regulations do not apply to work that you perform in your own home, but the EPA strongly recommends that you not attempt to remove vermiculite insulation yourself. Instead, the EPA strongly recommends hiring a properly accredited asbestos contractor if you need to have vermiculite insulation removed from your home.

Asbestos Testing and Removal in Lafayette and Lake Charles Metro Areas

Asbestos in Old Commercial and Industrial Buildings: Are You at Risk?

Materials once widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial building and construction materials were made with asbestos. Many older homes, offices, schools, commercial, industrial and public buildings still contain some of these original materials such as: flooring, siding, insulation, shingles and many other common materials. Asbestos is not dangerous until it begins to degrade, but once it starts aging, fibers are released and become airborne. Once airborne anyone within proximity will begin to breathe those fibers in.

Asbestos needs to be handled immediately by an EPA licensed asbestos abatement contractor. Testing will need to be completed as soon as possible by a licensed testing consultant. Property owners should not wait. If you suspect that you have asbestos in your home or commercial property, it is always best to hire an asbestos removal specialist to assess the situation.
