Sometimes the smallest thing can cause the biggest damage and asbestos fibers are so small, they can’t be seen with the naked yes. Yet they can cause cancer, pneumonia, Mesothelioma and a host of other life-threatening diseases. Asbestos can kill and exposure to it must be stopped. We can help. We’ve been handling asbestos removal and asbestos abatement in Long Beach, NY for more than 25 years.
How do you know if you or your family or employees are being exposed to asbestos? If your home or building was erected before 1978, it is very likely it contains asbestos. The hazardous mineral was used in asbestos sheetrock and plaster, asbestos insulation and siding, in floor tiles, roof shingles and those popcorn ceilings. As these building materials age, they degrade and release asbestos fibers into the air—and the lungs of anyone in the building.
We dispatch an independent testing firm to check for asbestos by sampling the air. If it is found, we send in our certified, licensed and insured team to seal off the area. They wet the material and make use of negative air machines to make sure no further asbestos gets released into the atmosphere. Then using their extensive training and vast experience, they scrape and remove all traces of asbestos, disposing of it in a designated land fill.
Abatement begins when we seal all removed areas with a special shellac and painstakingly clean the whole area with special filter-equipped machines. When the air is tested again and no asbestos found, we then restore all the contents where they were when we began the job. Only then do we allow your family or employees back into the now-safe building.
