Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral known for its strength, heat resistance, and insulating properties.

Prolonged exposure to airborne asbestos fibers can lead to serious health issues, including lung diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Asbestos can be present in various building materials like insulation, ceiling tiles, flooring, roofing, and even some household products.

It’s advisable to conduct an asbestos inspection before any renovation or demolition work on a building constructed before the 1980s, especially if there’s a possibility of disturbing asbestos-containing materials.

Certified asbestos inspectors or professionals should perform asbestos inspections or assessments to identify and evaluate the presence of asbestos-containing materials accurately.

New York State Code Rule 56 (NYS CR56) and regulations from OSHA and the EPA dictate proper procedures for handling asbestos-containing materials to ensure the safety of workers and the public.

If asbestos-containing materials are discovered, engaging certified professionals for proper handling, abatement, and disposal must follow established safety protocols and regulations.

Hiring qualified professionals who adhere to safety standards and regulations is crucial. Additionally, ensure proper containment and follow-up air sampling to confirm safe re-occupancy.

Asbestos abatement involves detailed planning, containment, removal, proper disposal, and post-abatement clearance testing to ensure the area is safe for re-occupancy.
