ASBESTOS ABATEMENT

Asbestos Material

Awareness: Many plumbers and electricians, including constructions workers, come in contact with Asbestos Material on a daily basis. In many cases, they irresponsibly disturb such material, causing a total exposure to everyone within proximity.


Asbestos fibers are invisible to the naked eye. Valium and air contribute to asbestos fiber contamination, and some single fibers can stay suspended in the air or travel for days from floor to ceiling. As asbestos materials age over time, the fibers often loosen and release into the air. These airborne fibers are known to increase the risk of certain cancers, which is why many homeowners have asbestos materials removed or sealed in a process known as asbestos abatement.

 

More often and commonly, if a home or building was built before the 1980s, it was likely built using a very common material known today as Contains Asbestos Material (ACM). Before any renovation project, have one of our knowledgeable staff to identify the hazardous material presence of asbestos which can cause health hazards, especially if the asbestos material is to be cut, sanded, sawed, removed, or otherwise disturbed. Asbestos abatement is typically recommended for any areas of a building where the asbestos-containing materials are likely to be disturbed, removed, or repaired. Such as if an inspector determines that asbestos exposure is possible, the building owner will need to take corrected action, removing and disposing of Pipe Insulation, Plaster, Caulking, VAT, Boiler, Roofing material, and more that constitute an asbestos activity. Abatement engineering will also be needed.

Mold Removal

Toxic Mold Remediation

Hazardous MoldToxic Mold Accumulation Issues: Good environmental service contractors would emphasize to their clients the need to identify the source of the toxic mold. The presence of humidity, moisture, and water penetration can cause the growth of mold, and that they need to be addressed immediately.

Some Toxic Mold Causes and System Include:

  • Runny Nose
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • Itchy Throat
  • Watery Eyes
  • Teary Eyes
  • Skin Rash
  • Wheezing
  • Fever
  • Restricted Breathing

Mold identification and remediation can be difficult and hazardous. Without proper remediation, mold and other fungi can cause deterioration of wood and building materials, but more importantly, can cause discomfort or illness for building occupants. Mold re-growth can occur if mold remediation protocol and standard guidelines set forth by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and HUD are not met.

LEAD PAINT REMOVAL

Lead Paint Roof

Lead paint is a hazardous substance that is dangerous to both children and adults, but most especially to children under age 6, whose bodies are in their primary development period. Children can ingest lead-based paint by eating paint chips, or through hand-to-mouth contact with lead dust that has been displaced during remodeling, painting, or natural deterioration of existing paint over time. Although lead paint was banned in the U.S. in 1977, building interiors and exteriors constructed between the 1940′s and 1977 commonly contain lead-based materials.

 
Our qualified professional technicians work carefully and thoroughly to remove the hazardous portions of lead paint from your home in order to restore a safe environment for you and your children, or from your government or commercial site to make it safe for workers and the public.
 
All of our lead removal methods are treated with the highest standards using the safest techniques and protocols. Establishing a dust control process is the first defense to prevent any toxic particles from spreading beyond the work area, removing, encapsulating, or enclosing the contaminating materials in compliance with strict and stringent EPA rules and regulations, as well as the DEP, NIOSH, and OSHA standard.
 
As of April 22, 2010, the EPA requires all renovators to be RRP-certified who plan to work in homes built before 1978 and disrupt more than six square feet of lead paint, so make sure that your contractor is properly certified. If you are not planning to remodel but are still concerned about the lead content in your building’s interior or exterior, call us to schedule a free estimate. We will help you determine whether your home’s paint is creating a hazard, and provide removal services if necessary.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Hazardous Materials

Hazardous materials are common challenges for contractors and owners of any commercial or industrial buildings. These include PCBs, lead, mercury-containing batteries and lights, electrical and electronic equipment, including gases such as Freon and other chemicals. Required to be handled safely by state, federal regulation, and guideline, we’d safely and effectively collect, package, transport, and dispose the regulated wastes to your specific needs.
