Asbestos Floor Removal and Why It's Important Not to Wait

Asbestos floor removal is an important issue to address for homeowners, but few people realize how important timely action is. That’s why today we want to talk about why it’s important not to wait when it comes to calling in the professionals.

Asbestos Floor Removal – Sooner is Better Than Later

Asbestos flooring was still used in the 1980’s and if your home was built in or renovated during this time there’s a possibility that your flooring could contain asbestos.

What should you do if you suspect that your home flooring contains asbestos?

The first thing you should do is assume that you are dealing with asbestos.  It’s better to assume that you are handling dangerous material and handle it with care than to assume that material is safe and put your family at risk.

The next step is calling in a professional as soon as possible to assess the situation.

If your flooring does contain asbestos and has contained asbestos contaminated material since the 1980’s then there is a good chance that it isn’t in the best condition. As with anything that contains asbestos, once that flooring begins showing signs of wear there is a high likelihood that asbestos fibers are becoming airborne in your home.

What does that mean for you?

It means that with each passing day the air that you breathe is becoming increasingly infiltrated with asbestos fibers which you and your family are inhaling. As time goes by, the amount of asbestos you and your family breathes in is increasing and worsening your respiratory distress as well as increasing your likelihood of developing serious illness.

The sooner you call in an asbestos abatement professional, the faster you can ensure that your family is breathing quality air and the less likely they are to succumb to the effects of asbestos exposure.

What happens once you call in a professional?

Once you pick up the phone and call in a professional asbestos floor removal company like SafeAir, they will handle everything for you. From removing your contaminated flooring to disposing of it properly to thoroughly cleaning your home air of any traces of asbestos, they will make sure that your home environment is a safe one to live in.

Can you wait to call in the professionals?

We never recommend waiting. Since asbestos is such a dangerous substance and it has such devastating health effects, it’s best to act immediately.
