Pipe Wrap In Your Structure Might Contain Asbestos

2/5/2021 (Permalink)

Pipes hanging from ceiling wrapped with insulation Asbestos Pipe Wrap

A fire in this rental property caused this structure to get dirty from soot or wet from the fire being put out.  This photo shows pipe wrap that was discovered in the basement that has to be removed because it had gotten wet.

This job actually was called in to a neighboring SERVPRO.  However, because that franchise is not certified in the State of Wisconsin to do asbestos sampling or asbestos abatement, they called SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County to handle that part of the job.

The owner of the property along with the Production Manager of the other SERVPRO was very happy on how quickly we arrived onsite to take samples and develop an action plan.  This step can hold up the project because most materials can not be demolished or removed until the asbestos sample results come back and if positive, the material removed by a certified abatement company.  SERVPRO of SW Waukesha is a Wisconsin certified asbestos abatement company.  

If your basement pipes look like this and have this type of wrap, it is very possible that it contains asbestos.  If you would like your pipe wrap or other items tested, please call SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County and speak with one of our certified asbestos inspectors or certified asbestos supervisors.  262-542-0900
