Trust is a big factor when determining an asbestos removal service. Asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals composed of thin, needle-like fibers. Exposure to asbestos causes several cancers and diseases, including mesothelioma and asbestosis. Although asbestos strengthens and fireproofs materials, it is banned in many countries. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has no general ban on the use of asbestos. However, asbestos was one of the first hazardous air pollutants regulated under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act of 1970, and many applications have been forbidden by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
WHAT IS ASBESTOS, ANYWAY?
DO I NEED ASBESTOS REMOVAL?
It’s a great question. Many around the state of North Carolina and our country are simply ignorant of the fact that they may have asbestos existing in their building. There are things to look for, the first being the history of your structure. Any building built before 1985 should be inspected before any renovation project. However, there is a possibility of asbestos being used in current construction because the US does not regulate importation of Asbestos from other countries (I.E.: China, Russia, India).
