Got Asbestos? STOP!

7/6/2022 (Permalink)

In the era of do-it-yourself home renovations, many homeowners are knocking down ceilings and walls and tearing out floor tiles and old pipes. But in their efforts to upgrade and beautify their older homes, they might unknowingly be contaminating the air they breathe with toxic asbestos fibers. If you have an older home, asbestos may be found in various building materials used in your house, such as:

Vinyl flooring, patching compounds and textured paints, sprayed acoustic ceilings, acoustic ceiling tiles, stove insulation, furnace insulation, pipe insulation, wall and ceiling insulation, roofing shingles and siding, home appliances, and cement. It is important to contact an asbestos testing company to confirm the presence of asbestos BEFORE any demolition. SERVPRO of Mission Viejo takes care to follow this important procedure prior to ANY water damage restoration. Once the abatement is completed, SERVPRO of Mission Viejo can complete the restoration process and make your house look "Like it never even happened".
