Happy Holidays From Your Asbestos Abatement Friends

… We’re Honored To Be Your FIRST Choice In Dealing With “Ugly”

As everyone knows, asbestos is ugly.  It’s basically a rock which, when disturbed, breaks into little microscopic shards o’disaster which have been proven to cause mesothelioma lung cancer.  What could be uglier than that?

Many people assume asbestos is illegal in the United States… and it IS illegal in our country to produce asbestos or manufacture stuff with it.  But, unfortunately, asbestos is still legal to import into the U.S., and tons of the ugly stuff are brought onto our shores every year.

But while your home or place of business might contain lots of asbestos in the materials used to build the place, you generally don’t have to panic.  Only when the stuff is disturbed, like by a flood or fire (or bad do-it-yourself project), is it dangerous.

It’s best to get your property tested, so you know what you’re up against in terms of asbestos content, just in case disaster strikes.

And if you need asbestos removed from your property, give the pros here at Asbestos Abatement, Inc. a call.  We can give your place a clean bill of health for far less than you might think.

At this festive season of the year, we thought it would be nice to share with you a classic tale of holiday triumph, exactly as it was read to us in Asbestos Expert Grade School.  So grab a cup of cocoa, and sit back and relax as we regale you with…


A Visit From Saint Fixitus

‘Twas the night before Thursday, and all through the place,

We slept, but we had no idea what we’d face.

From popcorn ceiling above to linoleum below,

We assumed that the property was all good-to-go.


When out in the hall, there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my bed, and my feet felt a splatter!

It turns out the kitchen pipes burst (what a drag!),

And soaked the whole floor – even carpet of shag.


It took us the weekend, but we dried the place out,

And later learned just what asbestos’s about.

It turns out the drywall was packed with the stuff,

And sweeping the dust up would NOT be enough.


We called in a tester then, just to be sure,

That everything’s groovy, and th’air is still pure.

He tested the whole place, went over each inch,

And declared “You’ve been HAD by the Asbestos Grinch!”


“Your air is NOT safe,” said the tester with gloom,

“Best fix it, or lung cancer might be your doom!”

Just then we heard HO HO HO, or some such sound,

And Saint Fixitus came through the door with a bound!


Jolly Ol’ Fix, from Asbestos Abatement,

Delivered encouragement with his bold statement:

“I’ll rid your whole house of these small shards of death,

And you won’t have to live here while holding your breath.”


And that’s what he did.  Saint Fix brought the whole crew

With their vacuum equipment (and cool “spacesuits,” too).

The report he gave afterwards showed what he meant:

Our air was now healthy.  One hundred percent!


Asbestos Grinch vanquished, Ol’ Saint Fix retired,

And went to the next job for which he’d been hired.

But we heard him exclaim, as he packed up his gear,

“Merry breathing to all, and a Happy New Year!”

Happy Holidays from your friends at Asbestos Abatement, Inc.   May the new year bring you much joy and beauty, and no ugly stuff!   But if ugly asbestos problems do arise, well, you know who to call.  Ho Ho Ho!
