Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
Asbestos was discovered in an apartment complex in Denver. And according to a report from 9news.com, Florida asbestos testing company AGC Environmental gave out an advice how others could early detect its presence and avoid the same incident.
The report, which was published on February 16, 2014, related that the fibrous mineral was found during the removal of the hallway carpets of the two buildings in the complex. And as a result of it, around 70 people were forced to move out of their units after just a few hours, it detailed.
Temporarily, the affected residents were relocated to hotels, said the report. It relayed that it may take three weeks before they could return. Nonetheless, it added that the management said they would pay for the hotel costs and food of the tenants.
Below is an excerpt from the said report.
“It was a long weekend with an unwanted inconvenience for some people in Denver. Sunday night they learned there's asbestos in their apartment building, and were told they had just a few hours to leave.
It happened at the Overlook At Mile High, near Colfax and Irving.”
Like mold, asbestos also poses a serious risk to people's health, said AGC Environmental. And as it cited, one of the major health problems that it could bring is mesothelioma.
However, it also stated that if detected early, people could be spared from asbestos' health threats. That is why it is essential to test a building for its presence, especially if it was built before the 70s and 80s, it said.
For a Florida asbestos testing and asbestos removal though, AGC Environmental asserted that its services are the best. It pointed out that it is being performed by certified professionals. Besides that, it cited that it is done in accordance with the state's federal guidelines.
Moreover, the company said that it had been an asbestos expert witness for more than ten years. With that, it assured it could provide a detailed report and sound advice about an asbestos problem. And those, it stated, could be of great help in various courtroom appearances.
