A Brief Review Of Asbestos Removal Companies In North Hollywood, California

For many years, asbestos was commonly used in many areas as part of construction fire prevention and retardant measures. It was used in schools, ships, heat ducts and in insulation materials. While the product was effective in the areas where it was installed, in later years, it was discovered that there was a risk of lung problems in those individuals who had been exposed to the product. Relatively quickly, statutes and regulations were enacted to forbid further use of the product and to identify locations and methods for removing the product. Read on to learn more about the procedures and skills of asbestos removal companies in North Hollywood, California that can safely remove asbestos products from buildings and other areas.

Asbestos is a term used to refer to a group of six silicate minerals. The long chains which form the distinctive appearance are easily released into the air when they are disturbed through abrasion or movement. Although the fibers have some desirable physical characteristics, they also are highly dangerous due to their lighter than air qualities. The small fibrils which compose the strands can easily be inhaled into the body.

Once inhaled, the fibrils are difficult or impossible to remove. The body doesn’t have the capability to expel the minerals. Since the symptoms related to various lung diseases do not appear immediately, the damage can be done before the victim is aware of the problem. Thousands of Americans lost their lives or suffered unnecessarily the ravages of lung disease.

Buildings constructed prior to 1980 in the United States contain the material in some form or another. The mines in the US were producing plentiful supplies of the product and it was a relatively inexpensive way to add insulation and fire protection to buildings of all types. Although the risks and links to lung diseases were known much earlier, the material continued to be used until a growing number of lawsuits showed that the financial cost outweighed the profitability of the production.

The knowledge of asbestos risks was known well before the 1970s when the first lawsuit was won. The cascade of additional legal actions had a dramatic effect on many businesses and on entire industries. Bankruptcies mounted as did the cost of abatement of the product in buildings and in medical care for workers afflicted. The claims for health damage and/or death are still being submitted, as more workers realize that they have long-term effects from working with materials which proved to be carcinogenic.

Although used widely in the United States for decades, the minerals have a lengthy and risky history dating back to Egyptian and Roman times. The Roman taskmasters used slaves to mine and weave the product and the link between the industry and the lung diseases were known and recognized. In many countries, use of the product is no longer legal. In the United States, it can still be present, although the top limit is one percent of mass.

Dry Star Restoration performs a number of construction related services in the area surrounding North Hollywood. One of these services is the removal of asbestos from buildings and other areas. Since the presence of the fibers can be difficult to discern, except by the assessment of a professional trained in the identification and safe removal of the particles. In some instances, removal of the product poses more of a risk than leaving it in place. Because of the high risk of exposure to the tiny floating particles, abatement of the material here should only be done by certified professional asbestos removal services in North Hollywood.

The carefully designed process for asbestos abatement takes every possible precaution to avoid spreading the fibers during deconstruction and to protect the AZ emergency asbestos abatement contractors in North Hollywood as they remove the materials and dispose of it safely. In the US, removal and disposal of the mineral is strictly regulated. Companies which work with abatement procedures are EPA licensing. Strict testing is required to determine that all of the product is safely removed.

The process of encapsulation or complete removal includes a number of steps and safeguards. Encapsulation is the less expensive process, but doesn’t remove all the materials from the area as does the more lengthy process. The steps in the process include eliminating the flow of air from affected areas into non-affected areas. Any HVAC systems, fans and other air movement equipment are turned off. The area where the dangerous material is present is completely sealed off to prevent the fibers from being transferred to clean areas. The affected areas may be sprayed with liquid to reduce the floating fibrils while the work is being done. The certified workers wear fully protective garments while in the work area. They also use approved respirators along with full face masks.

Specially equipped and powerful vacuums collect any dust, fibers, debris and other elements which are disturbed during the process. Debris is collected and sealed into clearly marked and leak-tight containers for removal from the site. At the end of the shift or project any and all soiled clothing is bagged or contained. Workers shower in a clean room removed from the work area before donning regular clothing.

Different countries have different methods of handling the removed materials. In the UK, for example, it is treated as hazardous waste, and cannot be placed in regular landfills. The silicate mineral and materials in which it is contained can be rendered harmless by several methods. One of these methods is exposure to extremely high heat. The high temperatures and current technologies transform asbestos into silicate glass through a process known as thermal decomposition. Silicate glass then can be recycled and used in the production of stoneware and ceramic products for a variety of uses.

The professional team at Dry Star Restoration has the knowledge, licensing and equipment to safely and efficiently remove this hazardous waste in large projects or minor remodeling efforts. Under no circumstances should a home or business owner attempt to deal with the mineral or products containing it as a do-it-yourself project.

More About North Hollywood

North Hollywood was once part of the vast landholdings of the Mission San Fernando Rey de España, which was confiscated by the government during the Mexican period of rule.

A group of investors assembled as the San Fernando Farm Homestead Association purchased the southern half of the Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando.[when?] The leading investor was Isaac Lankershim, a Northern California stockman and grain farmer, who was impressed by the Valley’s wild oats and proposed to raise sheep on the property. In 1873, Isaac Lankershim’s son and future son-in-law, James Boon Lankershim and Isaac Newton Van Nuys, moved to the San Fernando Valley and took over management of the property. Van Nuys thought the property could profitably grow wheat using the dryland farming technique developed on the Great Plains and leased land from the Association to test his theories. In time, the Lankershim property, under its third name, the Los Angeles Farming and Milling Company, would become the world’s largest wheat-growing empire.

Today, North Hollywood includes places such as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
