Beware of Asbestos in Commercial Mechanical Rooms

Asbestos was popular in mechanical rooms of commercial businesses due to its fire-resistance and hard-wearing nature.

If asbestos is found while renovating in the workplace, call Stutters Restorations for an asbestos removal specialist to test and if needed the safe removal of the suspected material.  A mechanical room that may contain asbestos isn’t hazardous on its own.  It becomes dangerous while doing demolition and renovation work, releasing asbestos fibers into the air.   Avoid disturbing asbestos materials yourself as it could increase the risk to your health and the health of others.   Small asbestos fibres can be released when working or removing hot water pipes, tanks and boilers.   Check the list below to give you a good idea of areas in a mechanical room that could contain asbestos:

Pipe fitting insulation
Heating and Cooling Systems
Various Glues
High temperature gaskets and flanges
Boiler and tank Installation
Electrical wiring, switches and cloth
Fire blankets
Corrugated insulation
Duct expansion joints
Cement pipe
Cast iron joint packing
Felt paper insulation
