The Asbestos Removal Process

Much like lead paint, asbestos is common in both residential and commercial buildings throughout New England.  It can be found everywhere from floor tiles to ovens; in homes and commercial properties.

Common sources of asbestos in your property often include:

  • Asbestos Pipe Insulation
  • Asbestos Duct Coatings
  • Asbestos Boiler coatings (commonly called ‘Snowman Boilers’)
  • Asbestos Floor Tile and Mastic
  • Asbestos Siding or Shingles
