When it comes to asbestos removal in Chicago and the surrounding area, Illinois has strict regulatory guidelines regarding the disposal of this notoriously dangerous substance. It is an outmoded insulation material which is all too common in many homes and apartment buildings as well as commercial businesses.

In homes, it presents particular risks as it is in close proximity to people on a daily basis and can be easily disturbed by children, pets, cleaning and remodeling. Left undisturbed, asbestos containing materials, or ACM, are not usually harmful. Disturbance of the material causes the fibers to be released into the air and become inhaled by people.

As a Chicago asbestos removal contractor since 1984, we are held to stringent guidelines by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, which is designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to enforce the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollution, or NESHAP. NESHAP regulates asbestos during demolition, renovation and disposal. As abatement contractors, all of our workers are trained, and certified through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

When you call us for asbestos removal in Chicago, we will respond right away, take a sample of any suspected material and bring it to an independent testing laboratory. We provide 24 hour turnaround of the results of the test. If the results are positive, we will prepare a free estimate for the best remediation method. It may include removal of the material or simply containing it on premises where it is rendered harmless.

There are many areas of a home, or multiple dwelling, that may contain ACM. Some of the more common ones include:
  • Flooring materials - floor tile; sheet flooring.
  • Pipe insulation -ACM was commonly used to wrap hot water pipes.
  • Building materials - The substance was added to enhance strength in concrete, asphalt roof shingles, floor tile, wall board, pipes, siding, joint compounds, and adhesives.
  • Fireproofing - It was applied to steel beams and columns during construction of multistory dwellings.
  • Thermal insulation - It was used to control condensation.
  • Wall texturing - It was used in decorative wall plaster coatings.

ACM is divided into two categories: friable, when it is easily crumbled, and non-friable, when it tends to remain intact. Friable ACM presents the greatest hazard, as the slightest disturbance may cause fibers to be released into the air.

If left intact and undisturbed, neither type poses an imminent health risk. It is during renovation or demolition when ACM can release dangerous levels of fibers into the air. If you are planning renovations to an older home or building and believe there is a possibility that ACM is present, call us first to reduce the risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma or asbestosis to you, your family or your workers. We will perform an inspection and any necessary testing to ensure a safe job.
