For asbestos removal and asbestos abatement, rely on certified professionals like Big Country Environmental in the State of Texas. Because disturbing asbestos can cause life-threatening illnesses, the EPA recommends that all asbestos abatement activities be conducted by certified professionals.
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings built before 1980. For decades, asbestos was used for its excellent insulating and fire-retardant capabilities. However, in recent decades, the federal government noticed escalating trends in cancer rates and respiratory health concerns with workers who handled asbestos. These trends triggered well-founded concerns that the general public could also be at risk.
Left undisturbed, asbestos poses little risk to property owners and contractors. Asbestos is not dangerous until it becomes airborne or until the material deteriorates and breaks down. Removal requires professional attention to keep both the person doing the asbestos removal and the building’s occupants safe.
Certain disasters like fires or floods will disturb asbestos, and the restoration of a building can’t continue until the asbestos is safely removed. Big Country Environmental has the technicians and experience for full-service remediation after a fire or water damage emergency. That’s why they are the first choice for asbestos abatement in the Abilene, TX, area and beyond.
