WHERE CAN ASBESTOS BE COMMONLY FOUND?
Once thought to be the fiber of miracle, asbestos was used for everything from fire and sound proofing, to insulating your home. It was commonly used in siding and roofing products, heating and air conditioning ducts, hot water storage tanks, hot/steam pipe insulation, vent piping, stucco and plaster. We now know that under certain circumstances exposure to asbestos can cause cancer and other very serious respiratory diseases and health conditions.
ARE MY FAMILY MEMBERS AND MYSELF IN ANY DANGER?
Asbestos alone can be considered to be quite harmless. The potential problem begins when asbestos ages or is disrupted, such as during repairs, restoration or renovation projects. If the situation is not properly handled, asbestos can endanger the health and may cost money to mitigate.
WHAT ARE MY LEGAL OBLIGATIONS?
There is no law that says that you must have asbestos materials removed from your home. However, if an asbestos containing material is removed, the law does require that the abatement work be performed by a properly licensed asbestos abatement contractor, as it is considered to be hazardous material. Due to stringent government regulations, only a qualified, licensed asbestos abatement contractor, such as Big Apple Asbestos.com, can protect you from the potential health and safety risks. Don’t risk your health and safety by taking on asbestos removal by yourself. Proper handling of hazardous materials requires knowledge, talent and resources which is only possible with Big Apple Asbestos.com.
