Our professionals can quickly identify whether or not your home or business has asbestos and remove it. Having a certified and trained individual handle your asbestos abatement is important to ensuring the material is removed properly so as to not harm the surrounding environment.
Do you have asbestos in your home or business?
Not sure if you need asbestos abatement in your home or business? Asbestos is not just found in vehicle brakes. It was common practice to use asbestos in many products before it was banned for these uses in the early 1980s. Before this time asbestos had been mined for hundreds of years, becoming a popular building material in the 1950s. It’s flame resistant and long lasting abilities as an insulator made it a popular choice for contractors over the years.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that the real dangers were revealed, causing a scare among those who owned blow dryers that used asbestos. While this material is naturally occurring, it is highly dangerous. If your home or office building contains this dangerous mineral, it’s time to take action.
Protect your health: get asbestos abatement
Asbestos abatement should be taken seriously if this substance is found within the walls of your home. Without the proper equipment, an attempted asbestos removal may cause more harm than good. It is when this mineral is disturbed in some way that it will enter the lungs causing cancer and other dangerous problems. Only those who have been professionally trained should attempt to asbestos abatement from your home or business. At Pro Pacific DKI, our team is trained and equipped to safely handle this harmful mineral when it is present in your property, eliminating the damage it can deliver.
Serious and fatal lung diseases can come as a direct result of asbestos exposure. Because it often takes decade for the symptoms to develop, these problems will often go untreated until it is too late. With early asbestos abatement, you can remove the chance for continued damage to your health.
Why asbestos testing is important
While asbestos comes in three colours – blue, brown and white – it is more difficult to identify because it was often mixed with other materials during the building process. Because of this, asbestos testing is the only way to know for certain whether this dangerous substance is present in your home.
If your home or commercial building was constructed before 1984 then there is a chance you could have asbestos containing products present. Asbestos testing in your home can save your life. Thousands of people across North America have died as a direct result of this dangerous substance in the home, asbestos removal will eliminate the risk, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
Some common building materials that may contain asbestos:
- Ceiling tiles
- VCT floor tiles
- Lath and plaster walls or ceilings
- Insulation around water pipes or heat ducting
- Vermiculite insulation was often blown into attics
- Drywall mud
