Where is asbestos found?

Where is asbestos found?

Asbestos fibers were used in construction materials, automotive parts and textiles for many years because they’re resistant to heat, chemicals and electricity. Asbestos fibers can be found in:

  • Wall and attic insulation
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Shingles
  • House siding
  • Car brakes
  • Heat-resistant fabrics
The danger comes when the asbestos fibers break apart as they’re handled or damaged. The tiny fiber pieces can’t be seen, but they’re easy to breathe in.

We use water to thoroughly wash asbestos away from your home or business. Don’t worry – we’ll prepare the area with plastic to protect the rest of your property from water damage.

Call us today to ensure the air you’re breathing in your home or business is safe.
