Due to asbestos being used as a main material in building insulation throughout the twentieth century, it is important to take the proper removal methods to make sure these toxic materials are out of harm’s way. Damaged asbestos can produce diseases such as Peritoneal Mesothelioma, Pericardial Mesothelioma and various lung illnesses. Recent studies indicate that over 2,000 to 3,000 cases are diagnosed every year in the United States alone.
If you maintain residence in the Markland woods, Princess Gardens, Islington Heights or Central Etobicoke areas or a home in the Toronto GTA, companies such as Environmental Services Group (ESG) in Toronto can assess survey and remove asbestos with their qualified asbestos abatement professionals. With a professional staff, ESG can help determine if you have asbestos and assist you in determining the most logical method of managing the problem- disposal or removal.
Once the removal is complete, green insulation options should be given serious consideration, such as: Cellulose, Cotton Fiber and Lcynene. Cotton fiber is made from recycled batted material and treated to be fireproof. A water based spray polyurethane foam, Lcynene features no toxic components. In addition, most people are unaware to the fact that these eco-friendly products can cut energy costs per household by 35 % per year.
Not only will asbestos removal make for a healthier, more vibrant home, it can save you money. The United Nations Environmental Program states that usage of recycled materials such as green insulation methods and lighting can reduce energy use by 25 to 25 percent! Removing asbestos by a licensed professional is worth the expense and time.
