Asbestos was one of the most common materials used for fireproofing and insulation in homes and buildings until the link between asbestos exposure and serious health issues was discovered in the 1970s. After this discovery, asbestos was no longer used for new construction and the EPA banned its use in 1989. It is possible that homes and building built before the ban still contain asbestos. If there is still asbestos on your property, it is best to call a professional to have it removed safely.
Elements Restoration provides asbestos removal services for homes and businesses in Puyallup, WA. We can effectively test your property for asbestos and ensure that any asbestos found is removed safely.
Homes built prior to the 1970s may still have asbestos in the following areas:
- Wall and attic insulation

When we arrive, we will look for asbestos in your property and test any materials that look like they may contain asbestos. The testing process will let us know if a material contains asbestos and if so, the concentration.
