Found in many structures built before 1980, asbestos is often discovered during renovation, remodeling or natural disasters. Asbestos can be any of several minerals that separate into long, threadlike fibers. Because certain varieties do not burn and do not conduct heat or electricity, they were used for making fireproof materials, electrical insulation, roofing, filters, and much more. Asbestos abatement is the process of removing this material.
Although a homeowner is not required to remove it, the presence of asbestos may create a hazard if exposed, and asbestos removal may be necessary to eliminate this danger. (Note that under California law, a homeowner must disclose the presence of asbestos in writing prior to the sale of a house.)
Commercial property owners are required to secure asbestos removal services where exposed and/or poses a hazard.
Complete and safe asbestos abatement requires knowledge, talent, experience and resources.
