Asbestos removal is at an all-time high, especially for commercial properties. Most older buildings contain asbestos, and as they are being remodeled, the asbestos-containing materials must be removed by a certified asbestos removal company such as Colorado Hazardous Environmental. Asbestos is a very hazardous material that is linked to many different illnesses, some that are severe, such as cancer. If a property has asbestos, it should be removed as soon as possible. Asbestos is a highly dangerous fiber that cannot be seen, making exposure easy!
Commercial Properties and Asbestos Removal
Removing asbestos from commercial properties is a bit more difficult than residential homes. Most businesses cannot fully shut down for days so that asbestos removal can be completed. This leads to companies losing money. Asbestos removal is generally completed in phases for commercial properties.
Areas are sealed off, and asbestos is removed from smaller areas. This allows the business to remain open, even if certain areas must be shut down temporarily. Once areas are sealed off, all asbestos will be removed and safely secured for disposal. Commercial property asbestos removal can take days to weeks to finish. If the property has a lot of asbestos, then the areas will be sealed off, and asbestos removed in stages. Asbestos can safely be contained and removed while the business remains open. This is completed using different tools and equipment to ensure no asbestos fibers escape the area.
Asbestos exposure is a concern, as it can cause illnesses and even death. Colorado Hazardous Environmental has the knowledge, licenses, and tools to ensure the safe removal and disposal of all asbestos from your commercial property. If your commercial property contains asbestos, give us a call. Asbestos must be removed in a timely manner for the safety of everyone!
