No matter how well you take care of your home or commercial property, you could still be exposing your family and employees to a grave health threat: Asbestos. Used in many building materials before 1978, if your property is more than 35 years old, it undoubtedly has asbestos. This hazard material can cause life-threatening illness like pneumonia, cancer and Mesothelioma and has to be removed now. We can do that for you. We have been successfully handing asbestos abatement (removal) and asbestos remediation in Huntington, NY for more than 25 years.
Because asbestos is both strong and fire-resistant, it was the material of choice for siding and flooring, asbestos roofing and insulation, asbestos sheetrock and plaster, even as an ingredient in “popcorn” ceilings up till the late 1970’s. What wasn’t understood is that, as these materials aged, they would release nearly invisible asbestos fibers—into the lungs of those exposed.
We can root out the asbestos for you. We send in an independent testing firm to sample the air for asbestos and, once it is found, our highly trained and experienced certified crew goes on-site. Licensed and insured, they establish a decontamination zone and, by use of wetting techniques and negative air machines, safeguard the atmosphere from any further asbestos pollution. Then they set to work on abatement, scraping and removing every trace of asbestos and disposing of it per regulation.
Once that is done, remediation begins. All exposed areas are sealed with special shellac and carefully vacuuming with filtered machines is done, before the air is sampled again. Once it tests negative for asbestos, we put everything back where we found it and sign-off on the job, allowing your employees or family back into the building, secure in the knowledge it is now safe for them.
