Don’t DelayWhy Asbestos is Dangerous & When to Remove It

People often ask how dangerous asbestos is, and this is what we emphasize: Asbestos can be very harmful to your health. In fact, it’s a carcinogen (a substance that can cause cancer.)

That’s why it’s so important to get it out of your home, especially if you’re doing any tear down or remodeling – because these activities can stir up asbestos into the air. Once airborne, the asbestos fibers can be inhaled and cause serious damage.

To learn more about our asbestos removal services or to get started:


Our experts have seen a wide variety of places with asbestos throughout the years. We find that older homes are more likely to have asbestos in them; that’s because regulations were put into place in 1979 that were setup to eliminate the use of asbestos products in buildings.

Depending on the initial construction of your home, asbestos could be found in:

  • Vinyl and laminate flooring
  • Roofing shingles
  • Insulation & drywall
  • Heating & water ducts
  • Pipe insulation
  • Boilers
  • Window putty
  • Stucco & plaster
  • Acoustic popcorn ceiling material
  • Exterior transite siding

The good news: With our niche services, asbestos in any of these places can be removed safely.
