Asbestos delays library reopening

There’s a problem with the Fenton Jack R. Winegarden Library — it’s not open yet.

If all had gone well with upgrades and renovations, the library would have been open by now. All of the planned improvements have been completed, with just a final cleaning needed, according to Library Board Chair Bobbie Sweetman.

But on Monday, Assistant City Manager Mike Burns presented to council the situation with the library. The issue is that there is 586 linear feet of plumbing that is still wrapped in asbestos insulation. That insulation was encapsulated when the library was converted from a post office, but today, that encapsulating wrap around the asbestos has begun to deteriorate. The problem was discovered a few weeks ago.

Burns asked for up to $30,000 to remove the wrap, the asbestos, and rewrap the plumbing. The council agreed unanimously.

Burns guesses the library will be open in late February or early March. The city still has to find contractors for the job, and work with Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

For safety, Sweetman said, “The council did exactly the right thing. The library board is very pleased at how the council responded to the issue.”

She’d rather see the building open to the public again, but is glad they’re thoroughly fixing the problem, instead of just re-wrapping the asbestos pipes. She said once the library is open, residents will love it. “It’s breathtaking to walk in there now. It’s friendlier, it’s very, very clean and bright.”

About the overall project

The library received new paint, plumbing, electrical, shelving and tiling. The overall renovation is being done in two phases, costing $310,000 total before the asbestos issue, and financed by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA).

  Patrons and employees will be able to see the original terrazzo floor at the entrance, new plaster overhead, and all will appreciate upgraded bathrooms and electrical service and new carpeting.

 Two new study rooms will be added, and the children’s library area will be modernized. Shelves are already going up in the children’s area, which also has new paint and carpet.

Mesothelioma Victims Center Launches New Initiative to Provide Diagnosed Victims Exposed to Asbestos at Coal-Fired …

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center is launching a new initiative focused on making certain all diagnosed victims of this rare form of cancer exposed to asbestos at a coal-fired power plant have instant access to the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma compensation lawyers. When it comes to power plants and exposure to asbestos, mesothelioma victims and/or their family members need to contact the specialists at 866-714-6466 or visit http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com if the family wants any hope of obtaining the very best compensation.

The center says, “Over the years we have been extremely honored that so many diagnosed victims of mesothelioma came to us for advice on what to do for a loved one exposed to asbestos while working in conditions that subjected them to daily exposure to the toxic fibers. Coal-fired power plants have recently come to our attention, so this week we have decided to begin a new initiative based entirely around helping individuals who may have questions about the compensation claim process.

“The common theme we see among power plant workers is exposure. What changes from person to person is the level of exposure and the amount of time spent in work environments where asbestos was used. Unfortunately for us, the battle to educate potential victims is forever uphill, as the signs of mesothelioma look similar to pneumonia. This often leads individuals to ignore their work history and settle with treating what they think is pneumonia. What we want to do is to spend the time with these individuals who suspect mesothelioma but are unsure of where to begin and go over how incredibly important it is that they have the nation’s top mesothelioma compensation lawyers working on their side. This is a service we offer on the spot with one call to 866-714-6466.

“These types of claims can produce some of the most significant compensation settlements we have seen. What we really want to stress to these individuals is simple—if you don’t seek help, compensation will not happen.” 

For more information, a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma or their family members are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or visit http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com.

Information About Mesothelioma For Diagnosed Victims And Their Families From The Mesothelioma Victims Center:

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the US Center for Disease Control the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old.  Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.

According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives, a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.

For an up to date map from the CDC showing the states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma please refer to their web site on this topic. http://www2.cdc.gov/drds/worldreportdata/figuretabledetailsarchive.asp?FigureTableID=139&GroupRefNumber=F07-02

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Before you hire a mesothelioma attorney please call us at 866-714-6466, and compare the qualifications of who we consider to be the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other lawyer, or law firm. When it comes to obtaining the best mesothelioma compensation settlement, the quality of the attorney matters, as we would like to explain anytime.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Mold Plus Asbestos Closes Ann Arbor Fire Station, Florida Asbestos Testing Company AGC Environmental Suggests a Tip …

..for Florida mold inspection and removal and Florida asbestos testing and treatment, AGC Environmental asserted that its services are the best..that’s because they are conducted by certified mold and asbestos inspectors and consultants.

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Station 4 of Ann Arbor in Michigan remained shut down due to a persistent mold problem. News website mlive.com gave out the details about it on its post dated December 20, 2013. In response to it, AGC Environmental, a Florida asbestos testing company, suggested a method to avoid the worse of the fungus’ effects in order to help the public.

Based on the report, the firehouse was closed late November after it was discovered to be mold contaminated, My Cleaning Products related. And because of it, it detailed that the firefighters and the trucks stationed in it were temporarily transferred downtown at Station 1.

The report said that mold test and treatment were implemented in the building but it didn’t resolve the problem, MCP relayed. Besides that, it shared that there was also an asbestos issue found in the station so besides the testing for it, an abatement would as well be implemented.

The cleaning of the facility was ongoing, according to the report. Regarding the closure of the firehouse, it was said that it could last from one to four weeks depending on the needed work.

Below is an excerpt from the report.

“A fire station in southeast Ann Arbor remains closed while the city attempts to remedy mold problems identified in late November.

Sources inside the fire department said Station 4 on Huron Parkway has been closed since Thanksgiving, leaving the city with four open fire stations.”

Both mold and asbestos could bring in health problems. Because of that, immediate response is essential whenever it is suspected that they are present, AGC Environmental said.

Firstly, mold and asbestos testing must be implemented, the company said. That way, their presence could be confirmed and unnecessary spending could be avoided. And once verified that they indeed present and posing risks, it asserted that treatments must follow up the tests.

However, for Florida mold inspection and removal and Florida asbestos testing and treatment, AGC Environmental asserted that its services are the best. And as it cited, that’s because they are conducted by certified mold and asbestos inspectors and consultants.

Additionally, the company stated that its indoor air quality testing and other environmental services also offer written data. And that, it said, could be used as official court document for insurance and/or purchase of a new house.
