California Exterminators: Asbestos And Hazardous Cleaning
Asbestos is a toxic material that has been banned in California for many years. California law states that you must hire professionals to remove asbestos from your building or property. California hazardous cleaning laws also state how to clean up spills and other hazards, such as lead paint. The following are some of the California hazardous cleaning laws:
- You must use a licensed contractor with experience in hazardous materials removal when removing asbestos
- If you have a spill, it should be contained and reported immediately
- Cleaners should wear appropriate protective clothing at all times during the process that is PPE approved for the micro fibers in Asbestos or whatever other hazardous.
Asbestos was outlawed in California in 1973. California hazardous cleaning laws state that you should save all of your records for the last 25 years pertaining to asbestos and other hazardous materials, such as lead paint. These laws are designed to protect consumers. When you have asbestos removed the company removing any tiles containing asbestos must have the tiles tested before the rest can be removed. After they are approved to be removed they will block off other parts of the home to prevent any of the micro particles from entering other rooms that do not have asbestos tiling.
Asbestos is dangerous because it can cause various diseases including mesothelioma and lung cancer. California's hazardous cleaning laws state that all companies must be licensed as a "contractor" to do business in California, something they don't require for many other types of work.
