Winter weather can be brutal, but it doesn’t mean work stops! Asbestos removal is completed at all times of the year. If your property contains asbestos, especially friable asbestos, it must be removed as soon as possible. That means even during the winter months. Asbestos is a very hazardous material. It is unlawful to remove asbestos without the proper licenses. If your property does contain asbestos, it is best to call a company such as Colorado Hazardous Environmental for the safe removal of asbestos.

Friable Asbestos

All asbestos is hazardous, but some asbestos poses a more immediate danger to you. Friable asbestos is asbestos-containing materials that have already started to become worn. This type of asbestos can be broken apart or crushed into dust. Friable asbestos is at a greater risk of causing asbestos exposure. If your property does contain friable asbestos, we will need to remove it immediately. This is done to protect everyone that enters your property.


If you have non-friable asbestos, it will still need to be removed in the near future, but it is not an immediate threat to your well being. Non-friable asbestos is not worn and will not easily break. However, it can become damaged through remodels or other construction, which could cause asbestos exposure. Non-friable asbestos is just as dangerous as friable.

Both types of asbestos should be removed at the earliest date possible to ensure all your home or business safety. If asbestos is found during the winter months, we will work closely with you to find the perfect time to begin the asbestos removal process. Once started, we will usually finish within a few days, depending on the property’s size and the amount of asbestos.
