As homeowners, we want to maintain the safest home environment – not only to prevent property damage but also to protect the well being of our families.
Biological contaminants can put our families in danger of serious health risks. Some common biological contaminants are lead, asbestos, and radon gas.
Mold Remediation services can handle the detection and immediate removal of biological contaminants.
A biological contaminant you may come across in your home at some point is asbestos.
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a group of minerals (tremolite asbestos, anthophyllite asbestos, actinolite asbestos and more) applied to building materials and vehicle brakes to help prevent corrosion and protect products from heat damage.
When asbestos is present in your home, it does not always mean a serious health concern. Asbestos is hazardous when it becomes damaged asbestos. Damaged asbestos release unhealthy asbestos fibers. When you feel that you may have hazardous asbestos in your home, you need to hire a mold remediation company, such as Advance Mold Environment, to inspect, remove and repair your home of asbestos.
When your family is exposed to hazardous asbestos, they are placed at risk of lung cancer, specifically mesothelioma (cancer located in the chest lining/ abdominal cavity) and asbestosis (scarring of fibrous tissue).
Here are some common areas of the home where asbestos can be found:
Vinyl sheet flooring or any type of floor tile that used adhesives during the floor installation.
Furnace Ducts that are insulated with a blanket or paper made of asbestos.
Walls and ceilings sprayed with soundproofing/ decorative products.
Cement roofing, shingles and siding that include asbestos.
When you suspect your home may have asbestos materials, leave it be and schedule an appointment with Advance Mold Environment to repair or remove asbestos.
Our professional asbestos inspectors are here to seal up asbestos fibers and prevent the release of hazardous asbestos fibers into your home environment.
Advance Mold Environment, a mold remediation and environment restoration company, can inspect your home or commercial business for asbestos, mold and lead exposure, water damage restoration services, and more.
