take care of Asbestos with safety in mind
Think you have an asbestos problem? It’s important to sample building materials that have been or could be disturbed in your property for asbestos-containing materials to help you mitigate risk, reduce contingent liability, and ensure your property remains safe from an asbestos release, protecting your building’s occupants.
Asbestos has been used in over 3,000 different products in the United States and Canada. Asbestos is banned in 60 countries, though not in the United States. Asbestos may be found in gypsum drywall and drywall finish compound imported into the United States as recently as 2020.

Asbestos Abatement Process
A licensed inspector must test for asbestos-containing materials and provide a complete evaluation. Having an inspector who knows the state, municipal, and federal regulations for asbestos encapsulation or removal is crucial.
Contain the area, and post “Danger: Asbestos-Containing Materials” signage around any suspected asbestos-containing materials that have been or will be disturbed, to protect the building occupants.
Trained and certified workers will encapsulate or remove PACM in accordance with federal, state, and municipal regulations.
