Asbestos Removal - Why You Should Hire a Professional

In order to protect the public from potential health risks, the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) act was passed. In New Mexico, the Environment Department oversees the strict adherence to NESHAP policies in order to protect New Mexico residents from hazardous materials in the air. American Restoration Water & Fire LLC, works hard to meet the training, certification and remediation requirements set out in this act, as well as by the state of New Mexico. Asbestos is a dangerous material, and should only be handled by trained experts.

Asbestos is a fibrous silicate mineral, with fibers up to 18,000 times smaller than the human hair. When handled, asbestos fibers can be released into the air and inhaled. The fibers aggravate lung tissues and can cause serious diseases like mesothelioma or asbestosis. The New Mexico Environment Department knows that the mishandling of asbestos materials is dangerous, that’s why they mandate that asbestos should only be removed by professionals. A licensed asbestos abatement professional like American Restoration should always be used. Not only do we know how to properly handle and remove asbestos, but we know how to properly dispose of the material as well.

If you’re a homeowner and you’re used to taking on DIY home improvement projects, or if you own a commercial property that contains asbestos, please do not attempt to remove it yourself. Strict laws that govern the handling of this dangerous material are in place for your protection. Don’t risk exposing yourself to potential disease. Call American Restoration Fire & Water, we know the ins and outs of the legal requirements for asbestos abatement – both national, and state mandated. We can remove asbestos safely – protecting you, and the quality of air in your home or business.
