According to the EPA “asbestos is a mineral fiber that occurs in rock and soil. Because of its fiber strength and heat resistance asbestos has been used in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire retardant. Asbestos has been used in a wide range of manufactured goods but mostly in building materials such as roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, paper products, asbestos cement product and heat-resistant fabrics.” The EPA also states that “asbestos fibers may be released into the air by the disturbance of asbestos-containing material during product use, demolition work, building or home maintenance, repair, and remodeling. In general, exposure may occur only when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way to release particles and fibers into the air. Exposure to asbestos increases your risk of developing lung disease. That risk is made worse by smoking. In general, the greater the exposure to asbestos, the greater the chance of developing harmful health effects.”
Our team of professionals will come and do an initial inspection of the area where asbestos abatement is needed. We will get you a quick and accurate quote to have one of our certified professionals come and remove this material in a timely and safe fashion while following all safety procedures for removal and clean-up

This metal siding has an asbestos coating applied to it. It typically alligator cracks as seen in this picture.
This is a house that caught on fire. The green siding is asbestos containing transite. Many times in these situations the entire building has to be assumed to be asbestos containing and demolished and disposed of as regulated asbestos containing materials for two reasons. One it may not be structurally sound enough to perform sampling and/or abatement and two, any asbestos containing materials that were present are now contaminating the entire structure.
Fiberglass insulation is not a suspect asbestos containing material, however, we have seen situations where the coating put on the ends for fiberglass joints does containing asbestos and is a suspect asbestos containing material.
Drywall joint compound is a suspect asbestos containing material
Often times the gaskets associated with the doors and penetrations contain asbestos, the insulation behind the metal jacketing can also containing asbestos, the silver exhaust and piping on top can also contain asbestos insulation. We have also seen asbestos in the pads under boilers. We are extremely efficient in being able to cut up, remove and dispose of these types of boilers. The cutting of these boilers can also involved lead paint which also has to be considered in the demolition/abatement process.
Prior to burning structures, it is required to have a pre-burn asbestos material study performed. We provide the pre-burn asbestos material studies and we also provide any asbestos abatement that might result from the testing of the houses. Pre-burn inspections involve the identification and abatement of all friable and non-friable asbestos containing materials. This project was near Cumberland, Ohio.
