Asbestos Abatement in San Diego

Asbestos containment

Containment set up during an asbestos abatement project to protect the rest of the home from dangerous asbestos fibers.

Asbestos is commonly found in homes built before the mid 1980’s. In the past, asbestos was renowned for its fiber strength and flame retardant properties and as a result was incorporated into many building materials like insulation, tiling and roofing. Today, asbestos products have been banned and we know that the inhalation of asbestos fibers can be responsible for breathing problems, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other deadly diseases. When asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed, asbestos fibers are released into the air of your home or business putting you, your employees and your family at risk for health problems. This is why during deconstruction and remodeling in older homes it is important to consider an asbestos inspection.
With asbestos abatement it is important to have a trustworthy, experienced and properly licensed contractor to properly identify, isolate, contain, and then remove the asbestos from your building.

Do not settle for quick and cheap fixes for asbestos—this will not eliminate the threat and could possibly worsen the issue.
