  1. asbestos abatement

    Asbestos abatement is the process of identifying, removing, repairing, or encapsulating materials or products in a structure, to prevent the release of asbestos fibers into the air. This process mitigates the risk of asbestos exposure, which can lead to serious health problems such as cancer and asbestosis. It should be conducted by trained professionals observing proper safety measures and regulations.


  1. Asbestos abatement

    Many buildings contain asbestos, which was used in spray-applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and in a variety of other materials. Asbestos was sometimes "flocked" above false ceilings, inside technical ducts, and in many other small spaces where firefighters would have difficulty gaining access. Structural components like asbestos panels were also used. In residences, asbestos was often a component of a type of flocked acoustic ceiling called popcorn ceiling or "cottage cheese ceiling", until its production was banned in the U.S. in 1978. However, the ban allowed installers to use up remaining stocks, so houses built as late as 1986 could still have asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. The only way to be sure is to remove a sample and have it tested by a competent laboratory.
