You may need an asbestos company in Boston that is trained and certified in best practices to upgrade your home or change out old plumbing or wiring. If there is any risk of disturbing this hazardous material, call a proven professional – Air Safe Inc. We are a state licensed asbestos contractor.
What We Do
As an asbestos company in Boston, our job is to identify potential problems and find the best way to resolve them. We always start by looking at what your building materials are made of. Chances are, if your house was built before the 1990s, and certainly before the 70s, you have some type of asbestos within.
Roofing, siding, flooring, pipe insulation, textured ceilings, panels and attic insulation can all contain it. In fact, it has been a very useful fiber since the time of Ancient Greece because it stops fire and thermal transfer effectively and inexpensively.
Are you a Home Seller, Buyer or Realtor?
When the job is complete, the customer is provided closeout documents; which include a completion letter describing the scope of work and certified lab results of the independent air testing. Completion Certification allows you to list your home with total confidence
Today, of course, we know the risks: when the fibers become airborne, they can cause a host of lung ailments including the rare cancer mesothelioma and the non-cancerous asbestos-is.
The EPA, CDC and World Health Organization all recognize this fiber as a carcinogen. Cases have come to light recently because this material has been commonly used for so long, and health problems take years to manifest. Only a trained and certified professional should attempt to remove it.

The Steps We Take
As a professional asbestos company, we can be counted on to give your home a complete visual examination. We will collect air and material samples if needed and send them to an approved laboratory. If we do detect hazardous fibers, we will give you a written evaluation of where they are and how extensive the contamination is.
Whether you are a homeowner or a real estate agent seeking to sell a home, you can expect a complete report on recommended corrective action. We follow all state regulations and federal protection laws including any required notifications. When the work is finished, we will perform another thorough checkup to ensure it’s been properly cleaned. You will get the results in writing.
We’ll Keep You Safe
Because this mineral fiber does harm only while in the air, our asbestos company technicians know the proper way to address it. We’ll ensure pieces won’t get broken. We will seal off the area with plastic sheeting and duct tape, marking it as a hazard area. We’ll turn off your HVAC system to keep it out of ducts and wet the area to stop the dust from rising into the air.
Our professionals will prevent tracking and spreading the fibers through your property. All surfaces will be cleaned properly, including the best air scrubbing methods available.
As an experienced remediation firm, we will always ensure the proper disposal of asbestos material. Our protective clothing, gloves and disposable equipment will also be carried out of your home using sealed, taped bags.
If needed, our asbestos company representative will come back and perform air monitoring to ensure the job was done properly. We take asbestos abatement seriously and work hard to make sure you never again have to guess at your air quality.
Should You Remove Asbestos?
There are times when asbestos removal is not recommended. If an old installation is sealed or incorporated securely into a building material, there is often no need to take it out. In fact, disturbing it could cause the very air-quality problems you are trying to avoid! We can advise you on what to do if you plan to renovate, repair or replace any component of your home.
