During the asbestos removal process, MoldPro will first check the air quality of your building and confirm if the structure contains asbestos. If asbestos is found, MoldPro offers two options – removal or sealing. The best temporary method to stop fibers from being released into the air is isolation, using a sealant. However, the most permanent solution is asbestos abatement.
Proper asbestos removal involves the use of wet cleaning to pick up asbestos fibers. Using dry methods will most likely cause the fibers to be re-suspended in the air and should therefore not be used. Disposal of the asbestos-laden materials should happen while they are still wet, to prevent particles from escaping. In certain situations, the use of special vacuum cleaners for asbestos removal is preferable to wet removal procedures. Containing and isolating existing asbestos involves spraying a sealant onto or into the material. The sealant stops the fibers from entering the air that we breathe. Another option is to shut in the offending asbestos with a wall.
In most cases, we will use drywall. This method is practical when the asbestos-laden area is rarely entered, like in an attic or crawl space.
During removal or sealing, our experts make sure that no asbestos fibers are released into the air. However, sometimes during the process, a minuscule number of microscopic fibers become airborne. In that case, they will be detected, gathered up, and destroyed. MoldPro is proud to offer a 100% guarantee of this.
