Asbestos Removal – Best Left To the Professionals

Asbestos removal in Kansas City is best left to the professionals. Asbestos removal is regulated by federal, state and local governments and requires licensing of abatement contractors and employees.  Smart Environmental Services LLC has all of the necessary licenses and insurance, and follows EPA, NESHAP (National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants), and AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act) regulations to complete the work according to all safety standards.  

Where Can You Expect to Find Asbestos?

Asbestos was a common building material used until the 1970s due to its affordability and fire resistance. Even some homes built or renovated into the 1990s may still be at risk. If you have an older home and are renovating or recently exposed some older construction materials, be on the lookout for asbestos in these places:

·         In attic and wall insulation
·         Textured paint or ceilings
·         In the joint compound or seam tape in walls
·         Flooring with sheet vinyl or linoleum or vinyl tiles
·         Hot water and steam pipes covered with insulation or tape

How Does a Professional Remove Asbestos?

We complete our on-site inspection, create an asbestos abatement plan, and provide you with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Once the asbestos containing materials are disturbed, it will release particles and fibers into the air so our employees are trained to complete the job safely. This process includes wearing the proper PPE, setting the proper equipment, and putting up plastic to contain areas of your home while removal is taking place in order to avoid spreading airborne fibers. 

Don’t DIY – Call SMART Environmental Today!

Asbestos removal in Kansas City is hazardous when trying to complete it yourself. A DIY approach could leave you or your loved ones exposed if proper handling and disposal methods are not used. The EPA does not recommend completing asbestos testing or asbestos removal yourself because it could expose you to asbestos airborne fibers once the asbestos is disturbed.
