What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral that was mined for several of its great properties that provided benefits to both the end user as well as the builder.

  • Asbestos is a great fire-retardant and can slow down the burn rate of that which it protects or is built into (plumbing, drywall and much more)
  • Asbestos was an affordable filler for all kinds of composite materials. Builders of many products included asbestos into their products to make them more robust.

Why is Asbestos Dangerous?

Asbestos is dangerous due to its microscopic size and needle like shape. These fibers, when inhaled will lodge themselves in your lungs, which in terms causes scar-tissue and further health complications if continuously exposed.

Contrary to popular belief, asbestos is not toxic as it doesn't contain toxins that poison or kill cells. . It is hazardous, however.

How do you safely remove Asbestos?

The Hazardous Materials or HAZMAT contractor uses a combination of containment procedures, negative air machines, wetting techniques and protective equipment to remove the asbestos.

Asbestos removal is not a question of finances but of health. Before starting a  project in any home built prior to 1986, make sure to contact PatchBoyz for advice on whether or not a material may contain asbestos. We will advise for free and recommend testing if necessary.

What are long term effects of Asbestos exposure?

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Pleural Disease
  • Mesothelioma

These conditions are able to develop over long periods of exposure. Prologed exposure is typically only a factor for people who openly worked with asbestos material before the government classified it as a dangerous material requiring PPE. However, there are cases where certain older homes have been majorly renovated without the proper precautions, recirculating this air without a proper decontamination could pose certain health risks.

Most of the above complications are a result of scarification of the lungs causing tissue build up, potential fluid build up, reduced breathing capacity as well as other functions of the lungs.

According to the the CDC / ATSDR, recent studies also suggest that asbestos exposure could be linked to Larynx and Ovarian Cancer, Stomach and Colorectum Cancer.


The 3 Types of Abatement

The three types of asbestos abatement are Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3

Type 1

This abatement process is used for smaller projects with non-friable asbestos. Wetting procedures are used. PPE use is suggested. These are typically quicker jobs that can be done in a day and for certain materials only.

Type 2

The Type 2 asbestos abatement process is used for larger projects with non-friable asbestos or materials whose friability can be kept under control using substances or dust extraction devices. The area is fully contained during the work.

Type 3

The type 3 abatement process is for friable materials. This process requires a full containment with a dirty room, clean room and shower room. The containment must be kept under negative pressure at all times along with air testing before taking down the containment. This type of removal is quite expensive due to its setup and tear down requirements.


The descriptions of these asbestos removal processes are not comprehensive and do not include the different Type 2 modified possibilities that exist. Please do not attempt any of these procedures without accredited training and experience.

Thank you so much for coming to my home to remove the asbestos from our vents, or “boots” as you taught us. Your timeliness was of the utmost important to have our furnace replaced. I wouldn’t hesitate to call you again.
