Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber.  It was used in numerous building materials and vehicle products for its strength and ability to resist heat and corrosion before its dangerous health effects were discovered.  Sometimes, for construction projects, it is necessary to disturb asbestos-containing building materials and it is often the best time to just remove it all together.  This is called asbestos abatement. The Greater Johnstown School District has a plan in place for asbestos abatement to be performed by properly trained and accredited asbestos professionals if and when necessary.
