If you want to modernize your older building or facility, you should be extra careful if your building was constructed prior to 1990

Large amounts of asbestos containing materials have been used for decades in a wide range of building and facility construction prior to about 1990 and even later.

Building owners and contractors are required by regulators to have a hazardous materials inspection and assessment completed to identify building materials that may pose a hazard. The hazardous materials Inspection must be completed prior to disturbance and should always be completed by a qualified, third-party professional that is AHERA certified.

Enviro-Vac does not typically do inspections or testing but will often work with consulting companies on complicated projects to assist in the process and provide abatement budgets.

Research has shown for many years that asbestos inhalation leads to cancer and other lung disorders. It is important to use the services from the professionals. Identifying, removing, or containing asbestos should be done by experts. The risks of asbestos diseases are too severe.

Licensed and trained abatement professionals can renovate or remove asbestos in a safe manner. You should not saw, cut, sand, grind, drill or use high-pressure water for cleaning your building. Removing asbestos is not a DIY job.
