Asbestos FAQ

What is Asbestos?

From the 1950s until the 1970s, building materials contained asbestos, a deadly mineral. It’s possible that asbestos was used in insulation or insulative tape if your home was built during that time (as seen below). Your ducting almost certainly contains asbestos if it is covered in white tape.

The Dangers Of Asbestos

Products containing asbestos that are undisturbed and in good condition provide no direct health risk. It is when these goods are disrupted and fibers are liberated, they pose a possible health risk.

Ducting Cleaning With Asbestos

We cannot safely clean your duct if it has asbestos in it until the asbestos has been removed. This is because, while cleaning, our equipment applies pressure to your heating system that could disturb asbestos-containing materials. We have a zero-tolerance policy for asbestos because of this danger. In order to safeguard both your health and safety and the health and safety of our technicians we will not clean any system that has asbestos.

Help! I recently learned that my heating system contains asbestos.

First of all, keep your cool. When asbestos is friable (easily crumbles and releases fibers) and disturbed, it becomes harmful. Because of this, we won’t be able to clean your ducts if asbestos is detected. Government requirements must be followed in order to contain and/or dispose of asbestos appropriately. Our team cannot assist you with this since they lack the necessary training for asbestos abatement and removal. You will need to find a qualified company that can assist you.

You can schedule your duct cleaning online or by calling us once the asbestos has been removed.
