Asbestos AbatementResidential And Commercial
Asbestos is more prevalent than you think
Asbestos was used in many products from the early 1950’s thru the 1970’s and while in the late 1970’s it was outlawed for production in the United States, it can still be found in imported products. Therefore, we treat it seriously both to protect our clients and our employees.
We test our restoration jobs where the building was built in 1984 or earlier and ALL fires. In many cases we are clear to handle the job as “clean” and the process moves forward. On the jobs where Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) is found we have the team, equipment, and expertise to keep all of us safe.
Frequently asked Questions about Asbestos
- Isn’t it all gone?
No, while legal production in the US stopped in the late 1970’s it is estimated that it was regularly used in buildings until the mid-1980’s.

Not necessarily. If the material remains intact and not disturbed it poses no risk to building occupants.
