Fifty years ago, it was commonplace for Westminster construction firms to use asbestos, a heat-resistant mineral, for many parts of the structures they built. At the time it was considered a great, versatile building material but studies into the chemicals it contains, and releases proved its consequences outweigh its benefits. After the research on its health risks came out, asbestos was banned for use in the home building by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1989. This means that Westminster homes built before that year most likely have a decent amount of asbestos in the structure and foundation and require asbestos testing to see if the material is posing a hazard to its occupants. If it's discovered that there is a hazardous amount of asbestos in a building’s air, asbestos abatement or removal procedure must be performed for the Westminster home or business to be considered safe for occupancy.
After your dwelling undergoes an asbestos inspection, the following step is planning out a strategy to eliminate it. Our specialists develop a mitigation plan by considering the amount of asbestos present and the amount of damage it has already caused to the environment in a Westminster building. Some instances of exposure in Westminster are pretty minor and can be rectified with a method called asbestos abatement. This implies we can salvage the surface with a few repairs and some deep cleaning. An asbestos abatement starts with us securing the afflicted areas and getting rid of the chemicals with HEPA filtration equipment. The next step calls for sanitizing all surfaces with disinfectants and vacuums to guarantee all remnants of asbestos are gone. For a Westminster asbestos removal project, we carry out abatement measures and add more steps, as those jobs are ones in which the preliminary asbestos test shows significant damage. Cherry Inc.’s experienced Westminster technicians will do an asbestos removal on any surfaces possessing hazardous levels of it and dispose of them properly. Any items that are taken out are replaced, and any zones that required demolition are rebuilt by one of our trusted Westminster reconstruction partners.
