Asbestos is an inorganic fiber that was once considered a useful addition to construction materials, like roofing, insulation, tiling, and more. Asbestos helped improve different materials by reducing heat, absorbing sound, and increasing durability among other qualities.
Unfortunately, asbestos is known to produce terrible side effects. If its fibers are inhaled for prolonged periods of time, there are serious health risks such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. As a result, the U.S. began phasing out asbestos use in the 70’s.
Today, our national Environmental Protection Agency lists the many bans on types of asbestos use and dictates where and how the material is permitted to remain in buildings constructed prior to introduction of regulations.
Asbestos is still found in many older buildings like public schools, government buildings, older office complexes and residential construction. With known health consequences, many owners and occupants of these structures are working to remove all traces of asbestos material.
This is where Restoration Management Company can help!
We at Restoration Management Company have many highly trained and certified technicians who work to safely and effectively remove asbestos from any property type. We can remove materials, help improve safety, and restore buildings, while working closely with clients to meet building preservation expectations.
For many building types, especially schools, spring and summer breaks are the prime times to address asbestos abatement. When fewer employees are present, students are away on scheduled breaks, or more families are off work on vacation, the spring and summer months are great seasons to plan for asbestos removal. This strategic timing especially helps property sites limit asbestos exposure for the duration of the project.
If you are a building owner, school administrator, or in facilities with ties to a property with asbestos issues, please reach out to Restoration Management Company. You can find details of our abatement process and client testimonials here on our website.
We would be honored to help you identify remedies and next steps for improving building safety!
