THE MOST COMMON PLACES TO FIND ASBESTOS INCLUDE:

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral made up of needle-like crystals. It was historically used in a variety of building materials like insulation, flooring and shingles due to its ability to resist corrosion from heat and electricity.

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?

HOW DOES ASBESTOS AFFECT YOUR HEALTH?

HOW TO REMOVE ASBESTOS

Asbestos abatement is a careful and highly regulated process that we can manage for you from start-to-finish. The first step is to confirm the presence of asbestos on the materials in question. We coordinate this with a third-party air monitoring company. 

Once confirmed, our licensed asbestos removal experts work with you to create a work plan and implementation strategy that ensures your needs are met while complying with local, state and federal regulations.

 

After we have safely completed the abatement process, we invite the air monitoring company back to collect new air samples and confirm the asbestos was removed successfully.

Lung cancer 


Mesothelioma: a rare form of cancer in the lining of the lungs, chest, heart or abdomen 


Asbestosis: serious, chronic, inflammatory disease of the lung 

Exposure to these and additional health risks associated with asbestos generally occur when the asbestos-containing material is disrupted in some way. Renovations and demolition work are the most common disturbances and can result in the release of fibers into the air.

HOW TO PREVENT ASBESTOS CONTAMINATION

Controlled demolition is the demolition of a structure with asbestos in place. Our team is skilled in this precise demolition that carefully removes a structure while preventing the potential asbestos from being disturbed. Some situations, for example when a structure has been damaged by fire, do not allow for safe testing and remedial activities. That’s where this type of open air abatement is so beneficial. 

We are licensed and registered by New York State for this skilled work, and have completed more than 40 controlled demolitions.
