What is Asbestos?      247

Asbestos is a highly dangerous micro-fibrous material that was commonly used in building construction from the 1950s to the 1990s due to its resistance to heat, fire, chemicals, and electricity.  Safe handling of these materials is important to prevent inhalation of these materials which can make their way into the lungs, potentially causing multiple complications and disease.

If you work or reside in an older property or if you are remodeling or replacing construction material, an Asbestos test can be performed by our State Certified Building Inspectors to determine if Asbestos is present.  Helpers Disaster Restoration can help you determine if asbestos abatement services are necessary and can assist you with abatement management and insurance claim handling from start to finish.

Asbestos Testing

It’s not easy to identify if a material contains asbestos by looking at it unless it is properly labeled. That’s where Helpers professionals come in.  Asbestos testing may be necessary before completing renovations or if you are buying, selling, or renting a property. Also, whenever any asbestos suspected building material is disturbed, such as drywall, testing should be done to ensure safety.

Helpers Disaster Restoration is Colorado State certified for asbestos testing. 

Helpers certified professionals will:

  • Visually inspect and evaluate the materials
  • Collect samples and interpret the results to verify asbestos content and condition
  • Assess the potential human health risk
  • Assist with insurance company claim
  • Manage abatement procedures

Asbestos Abatement Services

Asbestos removal can be challenging. Your asbestos containing materials can be hazardous to you and your health.  Professional asbestos abatement services are necessary to ensure a safe living and working environment. Helpers partners with trusted Asbestos abatement companies and provides management services for your asbestos removal and disposal for all types of asbestos-containing materials.  (In the state of Colorado, testing and abatement procedures cannot be provided by the same company due to the inherent conflict of interest.)
