Asbestos Hazards

The warmer weather brings out the inner DIY in homeowners. It is important that all homeowners are aware of the risk of Asbestos in homes constructed prior to the early 1990’s. If you are planning an addition to your home, or renovations, it is important that steps are taken to ensure you and your family are safe.

Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of the dangers of asbestos when starting renovations. Asbestos when left undisturbed is safe. It is important that you do not attempt to remove asbestos-containing materials on your own. There are serious health risks involved in this type of DIY renovations. Risks that include lung diseases and cancers such as Mesothelioma.

At Stutters Disaster Kleenup we pride ourselves in doing removals correctly, efficiently, and most importantly – safely. This means we will take a sample of your materials and have it tested first to confirm if it is containing. Following a positive result, we will arrange for our trained asbestos abatement team to come in. They will set up a complex containment area, and depending on the level of risk, a 3-stage decontamination shower, to ensure that no particles remain in the air outside of the containment zone. We will have a third-party hygienist do an inspection and give the go ahead to proceed safely. Our team will then remove all debris, washing walls and floors. Once we are finished you can rest assured that you’ve made the best possible decision, to keep you and your family safe.
