Bonneville County Asbestos Abatement 

Efficient Testing, Inspection and Abatement Services to Keep Clients in Southeast Idaho Safe

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral fiber material that was used as a fire-retardant insulation in buildings of all shapes and sizes for decades. Asbestos was also used in a wide variety of manufactured goods from the early 1900s all the way up through the year 1980. 

Because of its fairly low cost and remarkable ability to both insulate and prevent the spread of fire, everything from pipe insulation to roof shingles to furnace gaskets were all made from asbestos or materials that contained asbestos.

Why Is Asbestos Harmful?

Today, we know asbestos to be an extremely carcinogenic material, meaning it is known to cause cancer. Exposure to asbestos and materials that contain it can cause everything from mesothelioma to a variety of cancers, including lung and ovarian cancer. Because it was so widely used for nearly the better part of an entire century, there are still many homes and businesses throughout Eastern Idaho that may still contain asbestos and asbestos materials. At Abatement Services, we make it our mission to make asbestos abatement as simple as making a phone call.

What Is Asbestos Abatement?

Asbestos abatement refers to the process of identifying, containing, removing, and disposing of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in a safe and controlled manner. It aims to minimize the risk of asbestos exposure and ensure a safe environment.

Below is what asbestos abatement generally entails:

  1. Inspection - determines the presence of asbestos and the level of hazard
  2. Detailed treatment plan - This outlines preparation, cleanup, as well as local, state, and federal laws, so that you are well-informed
  3. Demarcation - marking off of hazardous areas in the property
  4. Setting up work area - ensures asbestos will not be spread throughout the building further
  5. Removing or repair of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs)
  6. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuuming - minimizes the spread of asbestos fibers
  7. Final cleaning - after all ACM has been removed or repaired, all surfaces will be cleaned thoroughly
  8. Post-cleanup - when the building is up to code and the barriers marking off the work areas are removed. The area is cleaned once again, and you will receive reports and records regarding the entire process. These must be kept to be compliant with environmental regulations.

How Do I Know If I Have Asbestos In My Building?

Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings. Below are some common signs that your home or office may have asbestos:

  • The building was built before 1980
  • Walls or parts of the building were built using cement sheets
  • The property contains vermiculite insulation
  • Vinyl flooring or millboard was installed between 1952 and 1982
  • The building has corrugated roofing
  • An old cement water tank is being used in the building

Asbestos may look like fluffy fibers; they may come in different colors, such as white, green, blue, or brown. However, visual inspection alone cannot confirm the presence of asbestos. If you believe there is asbestos in your home, do not try to find it; asbestos is especially dangerous when disturbed. Only an accredited asbestos inspector can conduct an asbestos survey or inspection to identify and assess the condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) properly.

How Long Does Asbestos Abatement Take?

The duration of asbestos abatement depends on various factors, such as the size of the property, the amount of asbestos present, and the complexity of the project. A small residential project might take a few days, while larger commercial or industrial projects can take several weeks or more.

What Should I Do If I Suspect Asbestos In My Building?

If you suspect the presence of asbestos in your building, do not panic. Do not attempt to find its specific source -- there is no danger unless the fibers are released into the air and inhaled into the lungs. The best thing to do is leave the material containing asbestos alone if it is in good condition. If there is slightly damaged material that contains asbestos, limit access to that area, and do not touch or disturb it. Contact Abatement Services right away to schedule an inspection. Our professionals can perform testing if necessary, and advise you on the appropriate steps to take to manage or remove the asbestos safely.

Can I Remove Asbestos Myself?

It is generally not recommended to attempt asbestos removal as a do-it-yourself project. Disturbing or mishandling asbestos can release dangerous fibers into the air, increasing the risk of exposure. Asbestos abatement should be done by licensed and trained professionals who have the necessary expertise, equipment, and safety measures.

Commonly Asked Questions

Is asbestos removal a hazardous process?

Asbestos removal is a hazardous process that should only be carried out by licensed and trained professionals who have the necessary expertise, equipment, and safety measures. Attempting to remove asbestos yourself can release dangerous fibers into the air, increasing the risk of exposure.

Can asbestos-containing material be repaired instead of removed?

In some cases, asbestos-containing material can be repaired instead of removed. However, this should only be done by licensed professionals who have the necessary expertise, equipment, and safety measures. Repairing asbestos-containing material can still release fibers into the air, so it's important to follow proper safety procedures.
