A quick look at the background of asbestos.
Asbestos is a material that has many properties to include being very heat resistant, a great insulator, and a relatively low price point. Unfortunately, it also has the bad characteristic of causing a variety of maladies from skin irritation to cancer. When in dust form, asbestos is a known carcinogen and is very hazardous. This is why you should consider removing it from your home or business.
Some people may advocate for sealing the asbestos floor layer and laying new flooring over it. This can create future costly problems. If you ever try to sell the property, you usually must disclose any and all known asbestos in the structure. When you disclose the presence of asbestos most buyers will back out even if it is in an inert form. You also run the risk of someday accidentally doing something that will turn the asbestos to dust and unknowingly create a huge health risk during a simple renovation or improvement job. For all of these reasons it is best to have it removed. If you remove the flooring improperly, however, you can create significant health risks. This is why it is best to trust a professional asbestos removal company like Peniel.
On Asbestos Encapsulation
Although Peniel also offers encapsulation services for asbestos, it’s not always your best option, and in most cases it doesn’t save you any money. One key reason people request encapsulation of their asbestos issue is the common misperception that it’s a lot cheaper than actually removing it. If you go to an overpriced outfit, well that will be indeed true, but with Peniel and their decade plus of certified asbestos removal services, we don’t price gouge or take advantage of people in fear of asbestos. Sure, occasionally due to certain circumstances it may make sense to encapsulate, but those cases are far and few between. With the cost factor removed, removal is almost always the better way to handle your asbestos problem. Encapsulated asbestos still has some risk including accidental puncture during future repairs. The dust is still present and once the encapsulation barrier has been compromised, that dust and asbestos fibers are free to roam. Peniel offers free consultations to determine whether encapsulation or removal of your asbestos is the best approach.
Don’t rely on lazy vendors who want to cover it up, count on Peniel to rid you of your problem once and for all!
When you choose Peniel Environmental for your asbestos cleanup, you will have decades of expertise at your disposal. We have completed a multitude of asbestos linoleum removal projects and possess the experience to make your project a walk in the park. Once we begin the process we will immediately determine the extent of the contamination, and cordon off the area that we will be working in. We will seal off the room with thick plastic sheeting and ensure that all vents and other inlets to the room are covered so that dust does not settle in them. This isolation will prevent the exposure of anyone else to the asbestos contamination.
Our technicians will use our extensive array of equipment to begin the process of safely cleaning up the mess in the most efficient manner. Where appropriate we will use a light mist to keep the asbestos dust down while we move in the cleanup area as long as doing so will not damage the structure. Our team then begins to gently peel up the tile or flooring and package it into OSHA approved containers for storage and disposal. We always ensure that any material we collect is transported and disposed of in the most secure manner to avoid further contamination.
