According to Asbestos.com “Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of soft and flexible fibers that are resistant to heat, electricity, and corrosion. These qualities make the mineral useful, but they also make asbestos exposure highly toxic.”
It is not uncommon for residential and commercial structures built before the 1980s to contain asbestos. Asbestos-containing building materials (ACBMs) are often found in flooring, walls, ceilings, insulation, and fireproofing materials.
Bethel Environmental Solutions (BES) has considerable experience in managing and performing destructive and non-destructive suspected ACM surveys at sites ranging from single structures to multiple locations. BES experience includes performing preliminary and all-inclusive asbestos surveys for the renovation or demolition of multi-family housing, commercial and industrial facilities. As well as the preparation of operations and management plans providing guidance for those areas where ACM is managed in place.
