Boyd’s Flood and Damage Repair in San Diego, Asbestos Removal in San Diego

Having Asbestos removal done in San Diego is easy, when you go with Boyd’s Flood and Repair services.

Removing asbestos on your own can be a difficult task. Many older buildings built in the San Diego area were insulated using asbestos because it was very resilient to fire. However, we now know that asbestos is hazardous and may potentially cause cancer. For this reason, if you have asbestos in your house you should make plans to have it removed as soon as possible.

Knowing If You Have Asbestos in Your San Diego Home

Knowing for certain whether or not you have an asbestos problem in your home is not an easy task in itself. There really is no certain way to know if your home was built using asbestos products at first glance. In older buildings it was quite common to find asbestos used as a flame retardant and as insulation. It was also included in the ceilings and wall panels for the similar reasons. The only way to find out if it was used in the construction of your home is to have a professional come in and take a look. This is not a DIY project because you really need to take precautions when dealing with asbestos due to the fact it is the most dangerous when inhaled.

When you hire a professional service such as Boyd’s Flood and Repair services to come in and look for asbestos the common places that they will check are ceilings, walls, and duct work. They can check for it by drilling holes and testing. However, even drilling a small hole to look for asbestos can allow it to enter the air. Most of the time when people have their homes checked for asbestos they are not home. The other option is for everyone to wear protective masks until the removers have concluded that there is no asbestos in the air supply.

What If I Do Have Asbestos in My Home?

Following a thorough inspection you will know for certain whether or not there is asbestos in your house. A professional asbestos removal service will then make recommendations for how to proceed. Depending on the amount of asbestos that has been found having your house cleared may be a time consuming and costly project. However, allowing the asbestos to remain can be a serious health hazard!

The good news is that the modern methods used for asbestos removal are not quite as damaging as methods that were used in the past. Some of your asbestos contaminated products may remain in tact.

The Asbestos Removal Process

The exact procedure for removing asbestos from a San Diego home may be determined on a case-by-case basis. In some instances an Asbestos Consultant may be required in order to help come up with an appropriate approach for removing the contaminants. Most of the time, the job is small and can be done with minimal damage done to your residence. Even in extreme cases the benefits of having the asbestos removed far outweigh the inconvenience of having the removal process performed on your home.

In fact, if you may be legally obligated to have it removed if you operate a commercial building or own a rental!
