hazardous asbestos Ceiling collapses after water damage in an upstairs unit leaks to the lower unit.

Water intrusion can happen when you least expect it. This photo shows water damage to a ceiling caused by the unit above. The water came down and the weight forced the ceiling to collapse. As you can see, the ceiling was textured with popcorn texture. In many situations popcorn texture contains asbestos. The professionals at SERVPRO were able to clean up the mess from the drywall collapsing as well as contain the asbestos fibers that were knocked loose by the damage.  SERVPRO offers asbestos and mold abatement services.  SERVPRO specializes in containing hazardous materials and thoroughly removing any airborne fibers by use of negative air chambers.  Asbestos is extremely dangerous and can cause many health problems in the human respiratory system.
