Here at Fiber Control Inc, we’re known for fast and efficient asbestos remediation and removal. However, it isn’t everything we do. Some of our clients are curious why we also make an effort to detect and bring to their attention the presence of mold and lead at the same time. In this blog, we’ll describe the reasoning behind it, and why these three harmful substances can be so often found together.
Our Job Is to Make Your Property Safe
When you call up a company to help you deal with asbestos issues, you’re asking for help removing dangerous and hazardous materials from your property. Asbestos is well known as a hazard due to the long-term health damaging and carcinogenic properties of its loose fibers. You’re looking to make this place safe for yourself or a potential buyer, and we don’t think that should stop at asbestos. This is why we also look for mold growth (which can be hard to spot) as well as having RRP licensing for the lead in case we come across that. These are additional hazardous materials that can affect the health of all those who work or live in the building.
Asbestos, Lead and Mold Show Up Together
Asbestos and lead show up in older buildings, with the overlap of both being from the early 20th century through the late eighties in the US. Both lead and asbestos saw uses in many different formats, with asbestos used in everything from floors to popcorn ceilings and lead be prominent in both paint and pipes. Both of these are most dangerous in older builds that are in disuse or suffering from damage, where the asbestos or lead can flake. Both of these circumstances can also lead to mold growth, including the black toxic mold.
It’s for reasons like these that at Fiber Control Inc we believe in not just doing the bare minimum, but making sure you’re safe from all these hazards. If you’re interested in asbestos, mold, and lead removal, please contact us today to get started.
