The beautiful Hudson Valley towns that comprise Rockland County, New York, share an ugly secret. Many of the older homes and commercial properties harbor dangerous asbestos. Our company has more than 25 years experience in removing (asbestos abatement) and site cleanup (asbestos remediation) and can help get rid of this hazardous material from your property.
Asbestos was once considered a miracle building material, being both strong and fire retardant, No one knew the dangers and so asbestos was used in the manufacturer of many building materials including asbestos insulation and siding, plaster, asbestos roof shingles and floor ties, sheetrock and even the once popular “popcorn ceilings”. Because of this wide array, asbestos found it way into almost every home or commercial property in Rockland County, NY, built before 1978.
Then the trouble started. As the buildings aged, the material used in their constriction degraded, releasing asbestos fibers into the air and the lungs of those exposed. Cases of cancer, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis—all deadly lung diseases—skyrocketed and the race was on to get rid of the asbestos wherever it was found.
We send an independent testing firm to sample the air for asbestos and, if it is found, move quickly to begin asbestos abatement. We send in our certified, licensed and insured teams to seal off the contaminated area from the rest of the building and establish a clean zone. Negative air machines make certain no asbestos fibers escape the zone while we painstakingly scrape and remove the asbestos, which is disposed of off-site.
Then remediation begins. We shellac any exposed area and clean the entire zone with filtered equipment, before the air is tested again. Only when no more asbestos is found, and the contents restored to their original appearance, do we declare the job done and allow your family or employees back into the now-healthful building.
