What is Asbestos?

Asbestos, a naturally occurring fibrous material, was widely used in over 3,000 building materials from the 1950s to the 1990s. When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, the fibers can become airborne, posing serious health risks to anyone on the property. Inhalation of these fibers can lead to severe illnesses, including cancer. If you are concerned about the presence of asbestos in your home, don’t hesitate to contact us.

I would highly recommend them.

My insurance company’s preferred vendor did the stop loss for our basement flood and then left me dry but not liveable. I finally, after months called Complete Property Restoration for help. They rebuilt my basement perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend them.

Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos must be double-bagged in a special 6ml polyethylene disposal bag before it can be brought to a certified landfill. A permit and disposal appointment are required. Complete Property Restoration handles all of these steps, from obtaining the permit to the final drop-off at the landfill. Asbestos must never have any chance of reaching the surface and being released into the air after drop off. We follow special procedures in preparing, moving and disposing of the asbestos to make sure there is no chance of a hazard being released.

Dangers of Asbestos

Asbestos can be found in properties prior to 1990 (most people believe asbestos to only be in buildings up to 1970). However, when asbestos was banned in the late 1970s from being manufactured, suppliers still had lots of product left on the shelves until the 1990s.

Asbestos contains harmful fibers that can attach themselves deep in the lungs and create long-term health hazards, including cancers such as Mesothelioma (cancer of the lung of the chest or abdominal cavity), Asbestosis (scarring of the lungs making breathing difficult) and lung cancer. It is believed that there is no safe levels of exposure and can be extremely harmful over time. ​

The following are examples of common building materials with the possibility to contain asbestos:

  • Vermiculite in attic insulation
  • Insulation layered with wood chip, batt or blown in insulation

  • Ceiling texture (usually popcorn ceiling or knockdown), ceiling tiles
  • Floor tiles and some carpets that have paper backing
