What is Asbestos Abatement?
Asbestos is a dangerous substance that is present in many buildings. It might be present in walls, roofing materials, ceilings, insulation, drywall, and other places inside the structure. Asbestos is relatively harmless until it is disturbed, such as through renovation or demolition processes. Then, the tiny particles get into the air and you can breathe them into the lungs. That is where they cause harm that could lead to health problems in the future. Asbestos abatement is a process that safely removes harmful substances from buildings without harming others. At RGR Abatements, we provide professional asbestos removal services in Calgary.
How Can I Know If Asbestos is In My Building?
If you have an older building, built in the 1980s and before, it is very likely that there could be asbestos in the original construction materials. It is best to seek professional asbestos testing before you begin any work. If you have already begun demolition, immediately stop and do not allow anyone to enter the facility until you complete testing. Asbestos removal services in Calgary begin with testing. Experts will enter the facility wearing appropriate safety gear to test for asbestos. Only those who have proper training and appropriate equipment should enter a building under remodeling that may contain asbestos. Our team will enter the facility or home and perform the testing necessary to evaluate the presence of asbestos. Asbestos is a substance that contains a variety of minerals and when dry, it is extremely dusty. These minuscule particles get into the air and can travel throughout the dwelling, where you can easily breathe them without knowing.
How Do You Remove Asbestos?
There is a specific process in place for asbestos removal services in Calgary. Only those who have training and authorization should perform asbestos abatement and removal in Calgary. Asbestos abatement professionals utilize safety measures before they enter the building. They wear protective gear and breathing apparatus that will prevent them from breathing in asbestos particles while they work. They remove any materials that contain asbestos and clean the area of all dust particles using special machines. The entire area must be cleaned and asbestos removed before it is deemed safe for occupants. You don’t want to try to remove asbestos yourself because it is very difficult to do correctly and the dangers are serious.
