Pearl River, New York has some lovely old homes and businesses, but behind their facade could lurk a dangerous health hazard: asbestos. We are in the business of asbestos abatement (removal) and asbestos remediation (site clean up) to help you rid your building of this contaminant.
Asbestos is contained in almost every building erected before 1978, as it was considered a strong and fire-retardant material. It was used in asbestos shingles, insulation, sheetrock, asbestos roofing and floor tiles, plaster even in the “popcorn” ceilings found almost everywhere. As the building gets older, materials degrade and asbestos is released into the air—and the lungs of those exposed. You need to get the asbestos out, quickly and carefully and we have been doing just that in Pearl River, NY for more than 25 years.
An independent testing firm goes on and samples the air to detect asbestos and, if it is found, our certified, licensed and insured team is sent in to set up a decontamination zone. Using negative air machines and wetting machines, we prevent any more asbestos from escaping and then painstakingly scrape and remove all traces of the hazardous mineral in our abatement process.
After that, we begin remediation, wherein we clean all asbestos dust away with filtered equipment and seal off all the exposed areas and then retest the air. When no more asbestos is found, we put everything back the way we found it (albeit in a healthier atmosphere) and sign-off on the job before letting your friends or workers back in the building.
Asbestos can cause serious illness like pneumonia, cancer, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis. Don’t let this happen to you. For asbestos abatement and remediation services in Pearl River, NY, call (877) 645-1428
