"It's been a year since my mother-in-laws house had a bit of an explosion and fire. She came out OK but the house had to be demolished. Colorado Hazard Control was chosen to do the asbestos abatement and then the inventory, recovery of possessions, and demolition. CHC did an outstanding job of working with the family and working through the county quagmire of rules and regulations.
Throughout this process they were very thorough and professional and guided us through the process. It made a very difficult situation much easier for my mother-in-law and the family. I especially appreciate the respect and consideration all the CHC folks showed for her and the home she had lived in for 50 years. They made a complete inspection and each day showed us pictures of the inside of the home and the possessions so we could decide what looked like it could be salvaged and what was beyond hope. CHC recovered many family heirlooms and went above and beyond to get this done with a minimum of stress on the family.
Thanks to all Colorado Hazard Control staff for your work."

"I want to personally thank Colorado Hazard Control for going 'above and beyond' in your work to help Boulder Valley School District respond to the recent flooding events.
In the face of this historic event, extraordinary demands were placed on the District's Maintenance and Operations staff. Colorado Hazard's rapid response and assistance helped us to get Crest View Elementary safe, clean and functional for students in remarkable time after the end of this monumental and destructive event.
Colorado Hazard Control has been an important part of our recovery"
Asbestos is the name for six naturally occurring fibrous silicate minerals that have been shown to cause cancer and other health problems if ingested. Asbestos is strong, heat-resistant, and an excellent electrical insulator. That’s why it was widely used in residential and commercial construction from 1940 until it was banned and phased out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1978.
In 1991, this regulation was overturned by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. As a result of the Court's decision, the 1989 asbestos regulation only bans new uses of asbestos in products that would be initiated for the first time after 1989 and bans the following specific asbestos-containing products: flooring felt, rollboard, and corrugated, commercial, or specialty paper. Asbestos can still be found in sheet vinyl flooring in structures constructed as late as 1989. In Colorado all structures, regardless of construction date, are required to be inspected prior to renovation or demolition.
Today, asbestos abatement in Denver, Colorado Springs and other cities throughout the state and around the U.S. is regulated by the EPA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and many state agencies, which stipulate that asbestos-containing materials must be identified and dealt with properly prior to demolition and renovation activities.
