More about Asbestos in Sterling, VA

The fiberglass-like fibers of asbestos turn into a clumpy mixture that resembles oatmeal when exposed to water. When asbestos fibers are in-tact and used in normal construction practices, they remain covered and are not harmful. When they are ripped out during removal, the once-secured particles become free floating in the air and can be easily ingested through breathing.

Typically known as “white asbestos,” chrysotile is the most commonly used form of asbestos, found in 95 percent of all cases of asbestos use including in homes located in Sterling, VA. Crocidolite, or blue asbestos, typically is used in specialized high-temperature applications such as automotive brake pads. Brown asbestos, or amosite, is the second most commonly found type of asbestos used in construction projects and the construction trade.

Hiring professionally-trained asbestos removal companies is the only safe way to remove asbestos from your Sterling, Virginia home. The Environmental Protection Agency suggested only working with licensed and trained asbestos removal and remediation professionals to significantly reduce potential harm from asbestos.

Once identified by a professional asbestos remediation company, the asbestos may be removed or it may be left in place. Often, the asbestos remediation professionals will determine the asbestos-containing material is in good enough condition to simply be left alone.
