Does Your Home Or Commercial Building Need Professional Asbestos Removal?

Homeowners are often surprised to discover that their home may be contaminated with asbestos, finely textured fibers that, when inhaled, can do serious damage to your lungs. Unfortunately, if you are remodeling a home built before the 1980's, you're probably going to need to remove asbestos and dispose of it properly before you can proceed. The process of asbestos removal in Minnesota is best left to professional asbestos contractors who have been trained in proper removal, containment and disposal of asbestos.

Where Is Asbestos Lurking In Your Home?

The simple truth is that nearly every area of your home could contain this potentially lethal fiber. If left undisturbed, the risk is minimal. However, once you disturb it, the fibers become airborne and can be inhaled by your children, pets and anyone visiting your home. Where is it most likely to be found? Anywhere. Everywhere. Before it was banned in 1977, and even in the following years when contractors were using up the last of their asbestos laden materials, it could be found in these pre-1980's materials:

  • Tiles
  • Linoleum
  • Pipe Insulation
  • Siding
  • Plaster
  • Drywall
  • Mastic
  • Boilers and furnaces
  • Popcorn ceilings
  • Texture coat
  • Roofing shingles
  • Acoustic ceilings
  • Mag block
  • Duct work and flues
  • And more!

Professional Asbestos Removal In Minnesota Is Recommended Whenever You Remodel

Whether you are replacing your vinyl siding or simply removing the dated, popcorn ceilings from a few rooms, you run the risk of disturbing asbestos. You can try to remove asbestos yourself, but it is a time consuming, tedious process that requires special care, including completely sealing off the area, wearing a respirator to protect your lungs, and properly disposing of the materials and dust. It's far better to hire professional asbestos contractors who have the proper equipment and are properly trained and licensed for asbestos removal in Minnesota.
