November 12, 2019. Restoration 1 now offers Asbestos Testing to residences.

Experienced in water, fire, smoke restoration and mold remediation, Restoration 1 continues to meet the demand of its customers. According to Micah Jefferson, president of Restoration 1, “As we serve our customers, helping them recover from water damage, fire and smoke damage and mold removal, we increasingly see the need for asbestos testing and inspection. If asbestos is sealed properly and left undisturbed, it is probably not dangerous. But when there is construction and renovation that takes place, asbestos can cause cancer and other illnesses. While it can be scary to hear that there is asbestos in your home, the truth is, experienced technicians can perform tests before any remodeling is done. If asbestos is found, removing it from a home can be done safely and securely.”

Asbestos was prevalent in the building of homes during the 20th century. At the time, asbestos was found to be quite good when used in insulation or in fire retardant materials such as ceiling and roof tiles. Now of course, we know that asbestos is quite toxic and when disturbed, can cause adverse side effects. You can find an article on the Restoration 1 website which answers the most commonly asked questions about asbestos.

The technicians employed by Restoration 1 are now professionally trained to test for asbestos. Restoration 1 can also recommend highly skilled asbestos removal companies to do the work.

Asbestos testing is extremely important whenever there is renovation going on in a home. Whether homeowners want to remove a popcorn ceiling, are restoring a room after water or smoke damage or just want to remodel a kitchen or bath, asbestos testing by a professionally trained technician is recommended by both OSHA and the EPA.

Asbestos testing involves several steps – the removal of sample materials, testing of the materials and obtaining the results. Testing is done by a professional asbestos testing lab. Most results can be obtained within 24 hours and will provide information on the areas that contain asbestos.

Restoration 1 also provides remodeling services, including interior and exterior remodeling, kitchen, bath and basement remodeling, flooring and carpentry. According to Jefferson, “As emergency restoration specialists, we get involved in repairing and replacing walls, floors, drywall and cabinets. Our customers have just experienced a disaster and are anxious to repair and replace as needed. We recognized the importance of timely remediation and decided to train our technicians on asbestos testing to meet the demands of our customers.”

The owner and president of Restoration 1, Micah Jefferson, is also a volunteer on the Genesee Fire Department.

For homes or businesses experiencing an emergency situation, prompt service is available 24/7, 365 days a year. Call 720-573-2568 for more information.
