Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was commonly used in building materials from the 1930s to the 1970s due to it’s strength, durability, and fire-resistant qualities before it was determined that asbestos exposure can increase your risk of lung disease and cancer. If asbestos-containing building materials are damaged or disturbed, professional asbestos abatement is necessary.
Asbestos is often found in attic and wall insulation containing vermiculite, vinyl floor tiles, roofing shingles, textured paint and patching compounds, on walls and floors near wood-burning stoves, and old oil and coal furnaces. Left alone these asbestos-containing materials are safe, but if disturbed, exposure to asbestos fibers is possible.
Only an accredited contractor should handle asbestos-containing materials. Capstone Environmental procedures meet or exceed local, state, federal, EPA & OSHA standards and guidelines.
