Do water damage companies provide asbestos abatement services?

Our All Pro Restoration technicians are asked every day why they need testing for asbestos. Most homeowners don't understand or understand asbestos. Homeowners insurance policies are supposed to pay for repairs caused by damage that is beyond the owner's control. It can be found in paint or sometimes in other building materials, and can seep into the water through lead pipes, which is hazardous to health.

According to the National Cancer Institute, exposure to asbestos is the leading cause of mesothelioma, which is a cancer of the lining of the chest and abdomen. It is imperative that homeowners know that the practice of taking asbestos samples must be carried out under adequate containment, as this will be one of the important factors when setting prices. You'll need to contact a state-licensed asbestos testing company in the area and receive a quote. If your home is damaged due to a covered hazard and if asbestos is released due to damage covered by the policy (such as water damage, fire, flood, falling trees, or roof damage due to a storm), the insurance would pay for asbestos testing.

If your home's building materials aren't damaged and won't be altered, you don't need to have your home tested for asbestos. Homeowners should consider if any of the materials that may be removed or altered during remodeling, renovation, restoration, or demolition contain asbestos materials. Then, we carefully close and seal the work areas damaged by mold to prevent the rest of your home from being contaminated with mold spores that build up during the mold removal process. We serve the cleaning and fire damage restoration needs of some of the world's largest insurance companies, providing them with the labor, skilled labor and expert supervision to complete even the most challenging projects.
