You may be wondering what exactly that is…maybe you have seen it, heard of it, or even been affected by it. The truth is asbestos is a dangerous fiber formed in rocks that, when released, causes major illnesses in your lungs-two of them being forms of cancer. So, where is this strange fiber found? Shockingly, it is in many households across the United States. Asbestos was used to make insulation, tiles, roofing, textured paints, siding, etc. It can even be found on your hot water pipes and brake clutches. I’m sure you’re wondering how asbestos is released into the air if it is found in solid objects? Nowadays fixing up or flipping your house has become a common phenomenon. However, what many homeowners do not realize is that when they fiddle with their pipes or attempt to redo their bathroom, there is erosion under the tiles or on the pipes. By smashing, tightening bolts, or even ripping up tile, asbestos fiber is released into the air. Many homes have to be tested for asbestos prior to purchase; however, that does not guarantee your home is asbestos free. You may have chosen material after your purchase and be unaware of the risk that is now in your home. Or, your neighbors may have asbestos on the siding of their house. When they decide to refurbish the outer layer of their home, they may release asbestos into the air if not done properly. That’s where we come in. Before any demolition job is done, we have to check for asbestos. If asbestos is found, we proceed to contain and remove it. This is called Asbestos Abatement. Here at Wild Heart we hire trusted asbestos companies to handle this lethal fiber. Before anything is knocked down, our subcontractors come in and clean out the material in a sterilized, safe manner, to prevent the release of it into the air and surrounding neighborhoods. This post is not meant to scare you, but when it comes to your well-being and health, rest assured that Wild Heart has your back and does our best to keep the environment clean and safe. Our desire is to knock down the old and dangerous so that one day you will have a cleaner, safer, brighter, more beautiful future.
