ABC Environmental Contracting Services Now Providing Asbestos Testing Services In St. Louis

Wentzville, Missouri based disaster management specialist ABC Environmental Contracting Services is providing asbestos testing services in St. Louis. The company is dedicated to helping both homeowners and businesses in St. Louis as well as the surrounding communities.

Asbestos is a catch-all term that refers to six naturally occurring silicate minerals, which are composed of thin, needle-like fibers which can cause a variety of severe and often fatal diseases. Dan Benton of ABC Environmental Contracting Services says, “It’s unfortunate that asbestos has become such a serious issue today. Prior to the 1980s, asbestos was used everywhere. In fact, it was a standard building material for housing, and for good reason. Even today, asbestos is incredibly useful as an industrial insulator. It can be cheaply produced and is quite resistant to fire and electricity, both of which make it useful in construction. Its properties as an insulator, however, do not make up for the fact that it is a severe health hazard.”

ABC Environmental Contracting Services explains that continued exposure to asbestos can cause a number of associated diseases. These include non-malignant disorders, such as asbestosis (pulmonary fibrosis due to asbestos), diffuse pleural thickening, pleural plaques, pleural effusion, rounded atelectasis and more malignant conditions such as lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma, which is a type of cancer that develops from the thin layer of tissue that covers many of the internal organs. Considering how severe the issues caused by asbestos can be, the company recommends that both homeowners and business owners check their properties for any asbestos and have it removed.

ABC Environmental Contracting Services provides asbestos testing services for free, assuring residents of St. Louis and the surrounding communities that the company will visit the property in question and carry out a thorough testing completely free of charge. ABC Environmental’s inspectors are highly trained in examining both commercial and residential buildings for asbestos. Their team carefully assesses the conditions in a building by evaluating samples of any materials suspected of having asbestos. Their inspections include a visual exam of the area as well as the collection and analysis of the samples. If asbestos is found, they will provide a written report stating the location and the amount of damage. Their testing can also provide the property owner with details like what type of asbestos is present and what percentage of asbestos fibers exist.

If there is any asbestos on a property, it is imperative that all of it be carefully removed. It is an extremely dangerous job, and workers take high risks entering every situation. This means that it must exclusively be left to professionals who are authorized by law to perform removal services. Fortunately, the ABC Environmental team comprises experienced and certified asbestos experts that residents of St. Louis can depend on for this task.

The services provided by ABC Environmental Contracting Services have earned the company unanimous praise from their community, leading to a perfect 5 out of 5 Star score on their Google profile. Tanner Reid writes, “This company did some asbestos removal for me and put all new flooring in my basement. They are a great company to work with. Went above and beyond for me. They finished ahead of schedule, and my new flooring looks amazing. Would highly recommend this company for home remodeling or asbestos removal.”

In another review, Gregory Haines writes that they, “Acquired a house that was 1950 vintage. Updated the kitchen and the bathrooms and was just about finished. Had a company out to put down carpet, and to my surprise, the old tile that was still down was in fact asbestos. So needless to say that they couldn't do the carpet until the tile was abated. So, as everyone these days does, I looked on the internet to find someone to get me out of this bad situation. Luckily, my first phone call was to ABC Contracting. I didn't know the first thing about the removal of asbestos. Very professional and got the job done quick. Will recommend them to anyone that needs help in that situation. Thanks, Tim.”
