Removing Asbestos Insulation From Your Home in Des Moines, IA & Surrounding Areas

Asbestos Insulation Des Moines IAIf your home had a siding or shingle installation prior to 1970, asbestos insulation was likely used in the product. While the dangers of asbestos are widely known now, we knew very little about this mineral in the past, other than that it was incredibly fire-resistant and lasted forever. These benefits meant that asbestos insulation was included in many home remodeling projects. However, we now know that inhaling the dust from asbestos causes many health problems, including mesothelioma. If you are concerned about asbestos in your home in Des Moines, IA, or the surrounding areas, contact Waddle Exteriors to schedule a test today.

We are one of the only fully licensed and certified contractors in the Des Moines, IA, area when it comes to asbestos removal, and we have developed a reputation for being a company that you can trust. We demonstrate this commitment to our customers from the very beginning of the process by carefully assessing the possibility of asbestos insulation in your home. In order to determine whether you have siding or shingles that were initially built with asbestos, we will test your home utilizing state-approved procedures. Testing for asbestos insulation includes:

  • Laying out plastic sheeting below the area where samples will be taken
  • Spraying water on the area to be tested to keep loose fibers from getting in the air
  • Cutting into the substance to get a sample of the fibers
  • Placing the sample fiber into a sealable container to be sent to a lab for testing

Once Waddle Exteriors has verified that there was asbestos insulation in your home, we will begin the removal process. After the removal process has been completed, a thorough cleaning of the area will be conducted using state-approved vacuum cleaners and wet cleaning techniques. This is to ensure that there is no remaining asbestos debris in your home.
