In the 20th century and earlier, many Loveland construction companies used a mineral called asbestos during building for several different surfaces. Strong, lightweight, and fire resistant, it was an ideal product for almost any part of a structure – or so everyone thought at the time. Research later unveiled quite a few health risks involved with the tiny asbestos fibers that come off worn surfaces, much like mold. The Environmental Protection Agency issued a ban on the use of it in 1989, so newer homes in Loveland have no risk, but any Loveland home built prior may have a hazardous amount of asbestos and needs an asbestos test and possibly an asbestos abatement or asbestos removal of multiple areas of their property.
After the initial asbestos inspection at your Loveland building, the next step is formulating a plan to get rid of it. Our mold specialists draft up a mitigation strategy by taking into account the amount of asbestos present and how much damage it has already done to the Loveland building. Some exposure cases are relatively mild and can be fixed through a technique referred to as asbestos abatement. This essentially means we can salvage the area with some repairs and heavy cleaning. An asbestos abatement begins with us sequestering the contaminated space and extracting the chemicals with HEPA filtration products. The second part involves a hardcore cleaning of all surfaces using disinfectants and vacuums to make certain that all traces of asbestos are abated. For a Loveland asbestos removal job, we do abatement measures and some additional steps, as those projects are ones in which the initial asbestos test revealed to have very heavy damage. Cherry Inc.’s expert Loveland specialists 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 Loveland reconstruction firm partners, so you can rest easy knowing we will handle the job from start to finish.
