You may know asbestos for its use in construction in the past. It is a type of mineral that gained a lot of notoriety in construction for its heat resistant properties. Unfortunately, studies have found asbestos to be extremely hazardous to personal health, especially when exposed to it for a period of time. This is why immediate professional asbestos abatement is recommended in cases where it has been discovered within a building’s construction work. JYM contracting services is always on standby for any emergency asbestos removal needed in the Atlanta region.
Where can you commonly find asbestos?
It is important to understand that at the height of its popularity, asbestos was widely used in many areas of construction. Within homes, it was used to insulate boilers, roof shingles, floor and even ceiling tiles. If you are suspecting the presence of asbestos in your home, then these are the areas that professional asbestos abatement contractors will often check.
Within large industrial properties, asbestos was used in wall partitions, roofing, beams, and columns and even in downpipes and gutters. Emergency fire resistance blankets were also made of asbestos. While the use of asbestos has reduced significantly today, some new developments may have used asbestos in the process of construction as well.
This is why it is important to engage local asbestos removal companies whenever you are purchasing a home or moving into new industrial space, in order to have a thorough check to ensure that you are not exposed to asbestos.
Professional asbestos abatement services
When it has been confirmed that there is asbestos on a given property, a proper asbestos removal service such as JYM contracting services take action in a carefully monitored process to ensure that all asbestos is completely removed.
The first step is the proper isolation of the affected area in order to create containment. This is achieved through the careful placing of water-proof plastic over various openings such as windows and doors.
The air inside the containment area is then filtered and vacuumed out to create a negative pressure within the containment area.
The asbestos is then manually removed either through scraping or demolition in extreme cases. The area, now clear of asbestos is decontaminated using a wide range of thorough removal tools to ensure no residual dust is left before allowing the air filtration to continue for a time until testing reveals complete removal.
If you are living in or looking to purchase a new home or industrial space, make it a point to have a professional asbestos removal service inspect it for you to ensure your safety. JYM contracting services is always a call away for all your quality asbestos removal projects.
