Whether you own a private home, an apartment complex on Jewel Avenue or a commercial property near Flushing Meadow Park, if that building was erected prior to 1978, it is a good bet you have a problem with asbestos. We can help as we have been the first name in asbestos remediation (site cleanup) and asbestos abatement (removal) in Flushing for more than 25 years.
Asbestos showed up in most of the building materials manufactured right up to the late 1970’s, including asbestos “popcorn” ceiling tiles, asbestos insulation and siding, asbestos roof shingles and floor tiles and asbestos insulation. Thought to be strong and fire-resistant, no one knew the dangers asbestos exposure posed to people in those buildings. As the materials aged, they degraded, spewing asbestos fibers into the air—and the lungs—of those exposed. Cancer, pneumonia, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis are just a few of the life-threatening illnesses cased by asbestos, which is why it is crucial to root it out of your buildings now.
Our service begins when an independent testing firm samples the air to establish that there is asbestos in your building. Then we go in with our certified and highly trained team to seal off a zone housing the contaminants. We set up negative air machines to make sure no asbestos escapes into the air as we scrape away the asbestos, bag it and remove it to a designated off-site facility.
Next, remediation begins. All areas we exposed are resealed with industrial shellac and the area painstaking cleaned with special equipment before the air is retested. If no asbestos shows, we then sign-off on the job and allow your tenants or family back in the building, safe in the knowledge that the danger from asbestos has been removed.
We are licensed, ensured and very experienced in asbestos services in Flushing. Call (877) 645-1428.
