What is Asbestos?
The 3 most common forms of asbestos used are: Chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite all of which have in common their similar form or structure, i.e. a particle that is at least 5 microns long or longer, with a length to width aspect ratio of 1:3 or greater. Asbestos is a name for six naturally-occurring fibrous minerals which include actinolite, amosite, anthophyllite, chrysotile, crocidolite, and tremolite.
Asbestos has been widely used for building materials such as flooring tiles, insulation for pipes and fittings, warm air furnace duct covering and sound deadening.
What Should I Do If I Have Asbestos in My Home or Business?
Asbestos-containing building materials become an issue when they are disturbed during renovations or demolitions.
Prior to beginning the remodel or demolition, you should test all building materials for asbestos.
If you have asbestos, and it will be disturbed during a remodel, renovation, or demolition, it should be safely removed by a certified asbestos removal company. If there are particles in the air then a Class 'A' certified asbestos remover is required. If its not disturbed or damaged then someone with a Class 'B' certification might be ok. You can always ask when you call.
