Atlanta Businessman Devises Way to Cleanup Asbestos for Fraction of Cost

Tuesday May 26, 2009

According to the Mesothelioma and Asbestos Awareness Center, a businessperson from Atlanta has recently created a way to clean up areas that are contaminated with asbestos for a mere fraction of the price. Because asbestos abatement is so costly, many building owners choose to either demolish or rebuild, or worse, ignore the problem, rather than pay to have it removed.

The man’s method, which consists of using a dishwasher soap-type compound to wet and stabilize the asbestos and prevent it from becoming airborne, is going to be tested in a building in Chaffee Crossing, Arkansas. The original removal project was estimated to cost the city $4.6 million. However, using the revolutionary new technique, city officials will now be able to complete the abatement for about $435,000.

The same method can also be used to remove hazardous molds and viruses from infected areas. This, along with increased efforts of asbestos removal will make living and working environments far safer for thousands of Americans.
