Does Asbestos Always Have to be Removed?

Asbestos removal from a Colorado home or business is temporarily life altering. An asbestos abatement company will need to set up containment areas where the asbestos is located while running air scrubbers that can be loud. Additionally, asbestos abatement techs will be coming and going. Again, this is temporary, but most home and business owners would rather not have to go through the process.

As an advocate of public asbestos education, Cyclone Kleen Up considers it an important matter that everyone receives all pertinent facts about asbestos and how it adversely affects one’s health. So when it comes to asbestos removal, is there an alternative? While some believe that there are, we strongly consider permanent removal as the best course of action. Asbestos is a serious health risk that can cause fatal lung cancer like mesothelioma and other severe illnesses. So you should ask yourself, why would I ever consider keeping it in my home or business?

Can You Live With Asbestos?

It’s true that if asbestos-containing materials are not disturbed and remain in good condition, there’s no immediate danger. But when these materials get old or are subjected to high heat, they become friable – they crumble easily. Once they do, those deadly asbestos fibers that were safely ensconced in the material become free to float in the air where anyone could breathe them in. Reconstruction and remodeling can also cause asbestos fibers to be released into the air. While their fibers aren’t immediately deadly, over time they build up and cause illnesses. So it’s best for your family, employees, tenets, and customers to have it removed.

Can You Seal Asbestos?

Enclosing asbestos, which is also called sealing, covers the material with a sealant that either glue the asbestos fibers together or coats the material so fibers aren’t released into the air. Furnace and pipe insulation is sometimes patched up this way. Sealing should only be performed by a professional asbestos abatement company.

But sealing is just a quick fix. It only delays the inevitable as incasing does not last forever and all asbestos-containing materials will eventually age and get friable. Additionally, the sealing process is costly and the asbestos will still sooner or later need to be removed.
