Asbestos  Removal Services
DCI Specialty Contracting Inc.

DCI Specialty Contracting offers asbestos removal services. Asbestos refers to a group of six naturally occurring silicate minerals that are commonly comprised of very long, thin, fibrous crystals. The use of asbestos for building and manufacturing became extremely popular in the late 19th century when it was discovered to have incredible resistance to heat, electrical and chemical damage, as well as high sound absorption and tensile strength.

Highly Toxic Asbestos

Asbestos is now considered to be highly toxic, causing serious lung disease and cancer. Its use is banned in Europe, but in spite of a serious attempt on the part of the EPA to ban asbestos use in 1989, it is still added to a variety of building materials, such as roofing, vinyl tile, and imported cement pipe and corrugated sheeting.

Structures built before 1975 are of particular concern, since, before that, asbestos was used in a wide variety of building materials including, but not limited to, insulation, gypsum wallboard, joint compounds, patching and spackling compounds, sheet vinyl, textured acoustic ceiling tiles, and roof shingles.
