Worried you might have asbestos? Let us check to make sure your home is as safe as you want it to be!
Asbestos is something that many of us have heard of but few really understand. Here at Double D Construction Services, Inc., we understand the dangers of asbestos all too well because we have been working to eradicate asbestos since 1995! If your home was built sometime between the 1920’s and the 1950’s, you might have asbestos in your insulation. After that time period, you might also have asbestos, but it would be more likely that it is hiding in your walls or ceilings as a compound used to fill joints in drywall or texture, such as popcorn ceilings. While asbestos was banned in the late 1970’s, that doesn’t mean that your home might not have any if it was built at any time during that period.
One of the reasons asbestos was used widely and freely during that time period was because it was a particularly effective insulation material. However, when the fibers of the asbestos start to age and break up, they can become airborne and inhaled directly into the lungs, causing breathing problems, infections and even cancer. Asbestos is a material that is usually fine when left alone, but once disturbed can wreak havoc! With our services as your asbestos assessment team, you can know if your home has asbestos and what can be done about it. Additionally, asbestos assessments can be done to determine if and where your home has asbestos hiding and give us specific areas to use in the abatement process.
If your Boone, North Carolina area property was built within that time period, let us take a look and perform an asbestos assessment. We can help you sleep (and breathe!) easier tonight with expert information on your home.
