Whether you own a one of the garden apartment buildings for which Jackson Heights, New York is known or a townhome or commercial property, you must be made aware that your family, tenants or employees are facing a major health hazard: Asbestos. The danger is real, the asbestos must be removed immediately, and we are the company to do it. We have been handling asbestos remediation (site cleanup) and asbestos abatement (removal) in Jackson Heights, NY for more than 25 years.
Finding its way into a myriad of building products manufactured before 1978, including asbestos flooring and roof shingles, asbestos sheetrock and plaster, asbestos “popcorn” ceilings and insulation, this hazardous material degrades over time and releases asbestos fibers into the air. Once breathed in, asbestos causes cancer, Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and a host of other life-threatening diseases.
We begin the abatement process by sending in an independent testing firm to sample the air for asbestos. If it is found, our certified, licensed and insured team goes on-site, establishes a sealed-off safe zone around the contaminant and goes to work scraping all traces of asbestos away. Negative air machines keep any more asbestos from entering the air and, afterwards, all asbestos if bagged and disposed off at a designated off-site facility.
Asbestos remediation begins when we seal all exposed areas, thoroughly clean the entire zone several times and then have the air retested. If no asbestos shows, we declare the site safe and the occupants can return.
