New York City is host to many historic properties and, while that makes for a fascinating city, those buildings also harbor a very dangerous health hazard: Asbestos. Exposure to asbestos is making New Yorkers sick and it must be removed right away. We specialize in asbestos abatement (removal) and asbestos remediation (site cleanup) and have done so in NYC, NY for more than 25 years.
Asbestos was used in siding and roof shingles, asbestos insulation and flooring, asbestos sheetrock and plaster and is even found in those “popcorn” ceiling once so popular. In fact, if you own a townhome, apartment building, or commercial property built before 1978, it is almost a certainty it contains asbestos and asbestos exposure causes cancer, Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, pneumonia and a host of other life-threatening ling diseases.
Our extensively trained and highly experienced crews can rid your property of asbestos, efficiently and completely. First we send in an independent testing firm to sample the air for the presence of asbestos. If it is found, our certified, licensed and insured crews seal off the hazardous area immediately. They then wet down the asbestos-riddled material and use negative air machines to make sure no more asbestos is inadvertently released during abatement. Scraping and removing the asbestos to an off-site designated disposal facility completes the abatement.
Next comes the remediation process, where the team reseals any area exposed by abatement, shellacs it and cleans the zone around it thoroughly, using special filtered equipment. The air is then retested and, once it has been declared asbestos-free, only then do we allow your family, tenants or employees back in the building…into what is now a safe environment once again.
