Asbestos & Lead Abatement
Asbestos is a heat-resistant, fibrous mineral. While it is minuscule, it is very tough.
These fibers have long been incorporated into a broad array of home and commercial products. The problem lies in the health hazards the mineral exposes people to the related risks to mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
Lead is a heavy metal and has been in use since ancient Roman times. This mineral poses health risks to humans because it can cause lead poisoning, which includes damage to the heart, nervous system, reproductive organs, brain, and high blood pressure or anemia.
What is Asbestos and Lead Abatement?
Asbestos & Lead Abatement removes and controls asbestos and lead-based paint (each containing, among other neurotoxins, chrysotile asbestos, and lead oxide) in old, heavily polluted inner-city neighborhoods or commercial buildings.
The majority of work needs to be done inside the building because most people spend more time indoors than outside. For a typically contained property, this might include ripping out flooring, tiles, or carpet if they still have dangerous levels of lead or asbestos fibers.
Asbestos and Lead Abatement Surety Bonds
The law requires asbestos and lead abatement surety bonds for any company that provides these services. The bond protects the public from being harmed by asbestos or lead dust, which can cause serious health problems if not correctly handled.
