About Asbestos & Asbestos Abatement
Zip containment used to keep airborne toxins within the work area and from entering the rest of the residence
Asbestos is a term used to describe six naturally occurring fibrous minerals, which can be found in certain types of rock formations. Of these six minerals, chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite were commonly used in building materials up until the mid 1980’s because of their fire proofing, corrosion resistance, and insulation properties. It is now understood, that asbestos fibers, when present in the air, can cause a number of dangerous medical complications. Because of this risk, asbestos abatement is a common practice in all types of buildings including schools, homes, commercial buildings, office buildings, and industrial buildings. Asbestos remediation or abatement is needed whenever there is a chance of disturbing materials containing asbestos fibers including prior to renovations or demolition.

Our asbestos abatement services are available to commercial, industrial, and residential customers throughout St. Louis, St. Charles, and Columbia, Missouri.

Health Problems of Asbestos
Asbestos is typically only a problem when a material begins to deteriorate or is disturbed during construction projects. Therefore, in many cases, it is safest to leave asbestos containing materials alone until asbestos abatement is necessary due to deterioration or planned renovations. Asbestos consists of tiny fibers that are typically invisible to the naked eye. These fibers can be inhaled resulting in an increased risk for a number of medical conditions including:
- Lung cancer
- Mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity
- Asbestosis, a buildup of fibrous scar tissue in the lungs
For many individuals, the risk of developing these conditions is higher with longer and greater exposure to asbestos containing materials. However, symptoms can take up to 20 or 30 years to occur following exposure. Because asbestos material that is deteriorating or has been sawed, scraped, or sanded is more likely to become a health hazard, asbestos remediation or abatement is necessary under these circumstances.
