AQHI Inc. follows best practices for asbestos roof removal in Whittier CA
Up until relatively recently, asbestos was a common ingredient in many building materials. Its insulating properties were lauded and its carcinogenic nature was downplayed. If you have an older property built or renovated before 1978, chances are good there is asbestos in some or all of the following roofing materials:
- Roofing felt
- Asphalt roofing shingles
- Cement shingles
- Roof underlayment
Weathering will cause these materials to begin to break down. When asbestos-containing materials break, they release asbestos fibers which can lodge in the lungs and cause serious health problems. You will need professional asbestos roof removal in Whittier CA from a company like AQHI Inc. in order to eliminate the health & safety risks posed by damaged asbestos roofing materials.
Our Procedures for Asbestos Roof Removal in Whittier CA
Asbestos roof removal in Whittier CA is a delicate business that should not be attempted by anyone who lacks experience in adhering to industry best practices for asbestos abatement. Before beginning work, we seal off all openings like air ducts, vents, louvers, drains, skylights, etc. to ensure that no contamination will enter the building. Then we begin working on small sections of roof using a wet removal method to limit the release of hazardous asbestos fibers as much as possible. After the materials have been removed, we clean the area to ensure that your property is ready for your roofing contractor to work on.
Hazardous Waste Disposal Is Included
There are no hidden costs in an asbestos roof removal in Whittier CA from AQHI Inc. because we include hazardous waste disposal costs in our bid. We bag all asbestos-containing materials as we work, collect them in a safe location, and cover them with a tarp and appropriate signage until an authorized hazmat disposal contractor can come pick them up. Typically this happens the day after we finish your roof removal.
