Professional Asbestos Abatement
What You Need to Know
Because it is resistant to fire, asbestos was, at one time, widely used in insulation, ceiling tiles, shingles and flooring in homes, commercial structures, schools and hospitals in the U.S. The growing recognition that asbestos poses serious health risks and can cause illnesses like mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer has made people aware of the danger that may be lurking in their homes and businesses, but questions remain. How do you know if you have an asbestos problem? What can be done about it? Is removing it a do-it-yourself project?
As a provider of asbestos abatement services, Sunwest Roofing LLC can answer your questions – and ensure your building is healthy. Here’s what you need to know:
- We will test for asbestos. If your home or business was built prior to 1980, asbestos may be present in the siding, ceiling, plumbing fixtures, caulking, drywall, electrical panels, plaster, vinyl floor tiles and other materials. While asbestos is generally considered safe if it is undisturbed, renovations, natural disasters and the passage of time can loosen asbestos and send it airborne, where it can result in life-threatening respiratory diseases.
- We will remove the asbestos. Asbestos abatement is a complex process that requires specialized training and equipment. It is not a do-it-yourself project. Sunwest Roofing LLC follows the EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) rules for the proper removal and environmentally responsible disposal of asbestos. The safety of our customers and our employees is our top priority when it comes to abatement.
