In the 1900s and prior, many structural engineers involved in homebuilding recommended a versatile product called asbestos to Lakewood construction firms. Robust, lightweight, and incredibly fire-resistant, it was considered a phenomenal building material. Later research linked asbestos particles to some negative health problems, and similarly to lead paint, it was then banned. This means that newer housing developments in Lakewood are in the clear, but homes built before 1989 probably contain asbestos. To find out if this is the case for your Lakewood home, you need an asbestos test done by a certified technician to determine if your property warrants asbestos abatement or removal.
Here are just a few areas of a structure that is likely to contain asbestos:
Once you receive an asbestos inspection for your Lakewood property, the next step is drafting a plan to get rid of it. Our technicians formulate a mitigation strategy by taking into account how much asbestos is present and how much damage it has done to the Lakewood building. Some exposure cases are relatively mild and can be fixed through a technique referred to as asbestos abatement. For Lakewood properties that require a more intensive asbestos removal job, we perform typical abatement measures while adding some additional steps, as those projects are ones in which the initial asbestos test revealed the presence of heavy contamination. Cherry Inc.’s skilled Lakewood technicians will remove any surface containing asbestos at dangerous levels and dispose of it safely. Anything that is taken out will be rebuilt and put back in via one of our Lakewood reconstruction firm partners. Call today to get started!
