asbestos removal

Most things made today don’t contain asbestos. However, until the 1970s, many types of building and insulation materials used in homes contained asbestos. In the past, asbestos was added to a variety of products to strengthen them and to provide heat insulation and fire resistance. Removing it properly is absolutely critical and usually involves the services of a licensed abatement professional.

Fortunately, once the asbestos insulation, flooring, ceiling tiles, or other products of concern are removed, there are much better options for their replacement. Today’s eco-insulation products include:Cotton Fiber, Cellulose, and eco-friendly sprayfoam insulations like Icynene and air krete. Eco-friendly insulation gives a lower risk of pollutants in the home because it is made from natural fibers or naturally-derived constituents.
