PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS WITH COMMERCIAL ASBESTOS ABATEMENT
According to Asbestos.com, by The Mesothelioma Center, asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring minerals made up of heat-resistant fibers. When inhaled, asbestos dust gets trapped in the body and could later cause mesothelioma, lung cancer and other illnesses. Before the dangers of asbestos were discovered, it was widely used in construction for its heat resistant and insulating abilities.
While asbestos is no longer common in construction material, it can still exist within the walls of older buildings. For this reason, knowing who and when to call for asbestos assessments and removal can protect your employees and the community.
WHO CAN TEST FOR ASBESTOS IN COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES
If you believe asbestos is present in your commercial property or if you just want to know, Cotton encourages you to call a certified asbestos inspector. The inspector will collect samples of the material and have them tested in a lab to confirm whether or not your building contains asbestos.
WHO CAN REMOVE ASBESTOS FROM COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES
If the samples taken by the certified asbestos inspector confirm the presence of asbestos, you will then have to seek out an asbestos abatement company, such as Cotton Logistics. The abatement specialists will work with the inspector to learn more about the extent of the damage and will formulate a scope of work that keeps your employees and business safe.
WHEN TO CALL FOR AN ASBESTOS ASSESSMENT
Cotton Logistics suggests businesses test for asbestos before any of the events listed below actually occur. Completing asbestos inspections beforehand can significantly streamline construction projects.
Natural or Manmade Disasters
In many cases, if a natural or manmade disaster has damaged your structure, a construction contractor cannot begin repairing the damage until an asbestos assessment is completed.
Renovation or Expansion Projects
Before beginning any kind of renovation or construction project, your selected contractor will want to know if asbestos is in the building material so they can plan accordingly.
Wear and Tear
If you notice building material has broken off, consult with a certified asbestos inspector to be safe.
