MHC Asbestos Removal
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, but that doesn’t make it harmless. Asbestos is composed of soft, pliable fibers. Because of its advantageous qualities, such as resistance to heat, corrosion, and electricity, the material became popular for the manufacture of various items. Asbestos is an excellent insulator. It may be used to make stronger cement, fabric, plastic, and paper, among other things. As a result of these factors, manufacturers utilized asbestos in hundreds of items before discovering the potential hazards, and laws were established in the 1970s. Decades later, we’re still cleaning up all the asbestos that was once so ubiquitous.
How Is Asbestos Used?
Beginning in the late 1800s, asbestos was mined and utilized commercially throughout North America. During World War II, the utilization of this substance skyrocketed. Asbestos was extensively employed in the building and construction sectors to reinforce cement and polymers, as well as for insulation, sound absorption, and fireproofing. More than 5,000 asbestos-containing items have been manufactured in total. In the late 1970s, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission prohibited the use of asbestos in some goods because asbestos fibers may be discharged into the environment. In 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency barred all new applications of asbestos.
What Makes Asbestos Dangerous?
Asbestos is no longer utilized because of the risks connected with it. That means you may rest assured if your home or business was built after 1989. If you own an older building, you must be aware of the risks connected with asbestos. The hazard of asbestos is posed by the destruction of asbestos-containing products. This can result in the release of hazardous asbestos dust. That dust contains tiny mineral fibers that are easily inhaled and can get permanently embedded in the human body. These asbestos fibers are known to cause a variety of health issues, particularly those involving the lungs. Asbestos may endanger everyone who lives or works in buildings where it is present.
The Dangers of Asbestos in a Residential Environment
It is extremely unsafe to reside or spend time in an asbestos-containing environment. When fibers are inhaled, it has been shown to induce lung cancer and lung illness. Asbestos contamination can be found in deteriorated, damaged, or disturbed insulation, fireproofing, acoustical materials, wallboard, joint compound, and floor tiles.
MHC Asbestos Removal is the leading provider of asbestos abatement, clean up, and removal services for commercial and industrial facilities in Central and Northern Colorado, including process manufacturing plants, office buildings, strip malls, hospitals, schools, plants, and warehouses. In addition, it is used as insulation in subterranean cables and pipelines.

We can support any asbestos project with a full range of services, including asbestos abatement, asbestos encapsulation, asbestos containment, asbestos cleanup, asbestos removal, and asbestos disposal.
Why Choose MHC Asbestos Removal for Your Home?
Asbestos, recognized for its fire-resistance and heat insulation properties, was widely employed in the manufacture of a wide range of construction materials. It is highly hazardous and has been linked to lung cancer in people who consume it. MHC Asbestos Removal’s asbestos removal crew has been trained to follow all essential protocols for the safe handling and removal of this hazardous chemical. We are committed to ensuring your and your loved ones’ health and safety.
Asbestos is now most often found in over 2,000 distinct construction materials in older commercial buildings, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities. When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by cutting, sanding, or other renovation activities, elevated quantities of airborne asbestos fibers might develop. Improper removal of these items can cause asbestos fibers to be released into the interior environment, raising asbestos levels and harming humans and animals.

Site visits are scheduled as needed for non-licensed asbestos removal. This is then followed by a draft plan of works before operators begin work. Before a certificate is granted, the resulting asbestos is transported to one of our registered waste transfer facilities and properly disposed of. Licensed asbestos removal services include fibrous asbestos removal, which necessitates a site visit. The hazards were identified during the site inspection, and measurements and photographs were obtained. All asbestos work is done under strict supervision.
An onsite supervisor oversees the overall progress of the job, leads the site crew, and serves as both the Health & Safety representative and the point of contact for emergency procedures. Our team’s, the public’s, and the environment’s safety is our top concern, and we utilize a variety of risk-reduction strategies, all of which are addressed in our risk assessments. Public safety, which is guaranteed by signs and segregation, as well as arranging works around shifts and schedules, are all factors to consider. All managers and operators must wear personal protective equipment including breathing masks. Furthermore, we monitor all of our site teams on a regular basis with personal monitoring equipment.
Disposal of Material Containing Asbestos
If your house or building was built before the late 1980s, it is likely to contain asbestos. It has also been discovered in materials used in ancient automobiles, machinery, and telecom boards. Asbestos removal necessitates determining the type of asbestos present on the site, which may be split into:
Non-friable asbestos (often referred to as “bonded”)
Asbestos is typically linked to a solid substance, such as cement or vinyl. It may be found in cement sheets and vinyl floor tiles. These asbestos-containing products are regarded as very low risk when sealed, undisturbed, and in good condition, since they do not emit asbestos fibers into the air.
When dry, these asbestos-containing materials may be broken and converted to powder by hand pressure alone, making asbestos fibers easily released. Asbestos rope and loose-fill insulation are examples of friable asbestos materials.
The Asbestos Removal Process
The removal of asbestos is dependent on the state of the materials and the lab test findings. Depending on the situation, we may propose encapsulation or abatement.
For example, if our Asbestos inspector is certain that it is still intact and the lab report backs up his findings, we would seal coat the asbestos components with a sealant to prevent them from becoming airborne. If our expert and lab results indicate that asbestos removal is necessary, we will dispatch a qualified team of asbestos removal specialists.
Asbestos may be classified into three types based on where it has to be removed:
1. Class I asbestos abatement: When the asbestos is from thermal insulants or surface asbestos-containing products, the abatement operation falls under class 1.
2. Asbestos removal in Class II: Asbestos removal from materials such as wallboards, floor tiles, sheeting, roofing, and siding shingles.
3. Class III asbestos abatement: Asbestos repair/removal with a significant risk of exposure.
Depending on the danger and amount of exposure, our team will use plastic sheeting to block off the work area while maintaining negative air pressure within the job site. At that point, our experts will also advise you on whether you should remain on the premises or not.
Don't Put Your Family at Risk for Asbestos Poisoning
Asbestos does not represent a risk if it is not disturbed. When fibers go airborne, whether as a result of a renovation, a fire, a natural disaster, or another event, they can be breathed into the lungs.
If you suspect your house contains asbestos, it is critical that you get expert assistance. MHC Asbestos Removal is a certified asbestos abatement and removal business with considerable experience in asbestos containment, comprehensive site decontamination, and lawful disposal of hazardous items.
