Asbestos Abatement Tips

Asbestos abatement companies come in all shapes and flavors but the basic idea is the same. Contractors must complete specialized training in order to be licensed to work with asbestos, whether it's removing it, replacing it, or encapsulating it to make it safe.

Many people equate abatement with just removal of asbestos but that's not always the case. Abatement technically refers to the process of abating the risk of asbestos material and making the environment safe.

That often means removal but it can also include immobilizing, stabilizing, or covering asbestos material, as asbestos is only dangerous when it is broken up and disturbed and fibers are released into the air.
