Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber once widely used in building materials and products including floor tiles, mastics, pipe and boiler insulation, roofing and siding materials, and fireproofing materials. Undisturbed, asbestos-containing materials generally pose no health risk. These materials become hazardous when they release asbestos fibers into the air as a result of damage, disturbance, or deterioration. Once inhaled, asbestos fibers remain and accumulate in the lungs. Exposure can result in serious or fatal diseases including lung cancer, mesothelioma (cancer of chest and abdominal lining), or asbestosis (irreversible lung scarring that can be fatal).

Alderson, Inc. has successfully completed over 500 asbestos abatement projects ranging from small-scale operations to large, multiphase projects in occupied buildings. We are licensed in the state of Vermont and the state of New Hampshire as an asbestos abatement entity, and all of our staff are fully trained and licensed according to state and federal EPA regulations. We construct containment areas with airtight barriers to prevent asbestos fibers from entering the home or building during the asbestos removal process.
