Used in sound control, fireproofing and insulation, asbestos has been in use for nearly a century now, and was considered an important building material. The material could be found in texture paint, millboards, floor tiles, other coating materials and furnaces. Over the years though, numerous tests have proved that asbestos poses as a serious health hazard, the chief among them being asbestosis (a type of lung cancer) mesothelioma (a type of chest cancer) and lung cancer.
Since its hazardous properties came to light, home and business owners want this material removed from their properties. Our experts at Baltimore Restoration Co can help you identify parts or sections of your home or other properties to identify whether it has been contaminated by asbestos.

Why Is Asbestos Removal Important?
Still, not convinced? Let us look at some reasons why asbestos removal is very important.
More Prevalent Than You Realize
What most homeowners don’t realize is that asbestos can be found in a lot of homes and properties across the country. Although the amount of asbestos has fallen significantly over the last few decades, there is still a high chance of workers and homeowners coming in contact with this hazardous material. And researchers and experts have suggested that people not trained in handling the material should not attempt to remove it themselves because there are certain rules and regulations that must be followed.
It is therefore recommended that only a licensed asbestos abatement expert should first inspect the home if there is any dangerous material present there, and then they should take the steps to remove it.
The Need to Remove It Safely
The most important factor to consider is that the exposure to asbestos has been linked to several deadly diseases such as the ones we mentioned before, such as lung cancer. Asbestos can become airborne, and the fibers cannot be seen with the naked eye, and so anyone could be exposed to it unknowingly. These fibers which have been ingested can show their harmful effects years later.
Baltimore Restoration Co, with years of experience of asbestos removal in Maryland, can put your mind at ease by offering its services and assurance that you and the people you care about (family or colleagues) are safe from the threat that asbestos contamination can pose.
How Asbestos Is Removed
If the material is damaged or worn, handling asbestos can be dangerous. If you do not have the right certification or training, you should never attempt to remove it on your own. Several government agencies, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the United States Environmental Protection Agency reiterate that there are no “safe” levels for asbestos exposure.
Our experts take samples of materials that can be damaged or broken before the work is started, as the procedure says. We realize that all areas where asbestos may be present or has been used are to be treated as a danger zone. Our trained specialists remove these questionable materials, after which they are sent to a highly-specialized team to determine their exposure.
Depending on the exposure, our specialists will determine if whole sections of your property have to be removed (the process is called encapsulation or abatement). Materials that may have traces of asbestos, but are unbroken or undamaged are usually considered safe, but our specialists will check them periodically check for any signs of wear.
In the encapsulation process, we coat the material with our special sealant, which will prevent the asbestos fibers to escape and become airborne. We only remove the materials completely if there is significant wear and tear and there is an imminent danger of exposure or contamination.
