Asbestos is a very serious air pollution particulate that can be extremely harmful and even deadly if inhaled. At Evergreen AES, over the years we have tested, removed and contained hundreds of asbestos-affected sites, with the utmost dedication to proper containment, removal and disposal of the materials, all under license and certification with APCD Asbestos Removal Permits.
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a term referring to a group of fibrous materials that have been used in insulation over the years across different types of industries, including construction, automotive, industrial and many others.
Asbestos Health Risks
Much research and many studies have been performed on the effects of asbestos inhalation. These studies have shown that inhaling high concentrations of asbestos fibers can, over time, cause malignant lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. In asbestosis, delicate lung tissue is damaged by the body's own attempts to remove embedded fibers. Mesothelioma can develop in the lining (pleura) of the lung or in the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum). Unfortunately the symptoms of lung cancer or mesothelioma usually do not appear in human body many years after exposure.
In general, undisturbed asbestos-containing material (ACM) are not dangerous. But when materials are disturbed, broken or torn during remodeling or demolition, the fibers can be torn and spread into the air presenting the potential for harm with exposure.
Asbestos Removal Certification and Training
In order to properly identify, remove and handle any type of asbestos material, special training and equipment are required to remove asbestos-containing material safely. Both federal and local regulations require a permit and the use of a licensed contractor for removal of asbestos-containing material from any structure. At Evergreen AES, we are fully licensed, certified and trained to handle any type of asbestos removal project. With our extensive knowledge and expertise in the asbestos abetment industry, we provide complete asbestos removal services in the Midwest area including the states of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tenseness and West Virginia.
