Businesses and workers have flocked to White Plains, New York since the 1940’s, spurring uncontrolled urban growth and housing construction, but in those homes and buildings erected before 1978 is found a killer: Asbestos. Asbestos removal and abatement is our specialty and there is no time to waste.
Asbestos exposure can cause cancer, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis, life-threatening diseases that can affect anyone exposed…and that includes your family and workers. But you may be unaware of the danger until it is too late.
Until the mid-‘70’s asbestos, known to be strong and fire-retardant, was used in the manufacture of insulation and siding, asbestos floor tiles, sheetrock, plaster, asbestos roof shingles and in the commonly found vermiculite or “popcorn” ceilings. As time passed, these materials begin to shed invisible asbestos fibers that lodge in the lungs. How to detect such unseen fibers?
Our company, with 25 years experience in asbestos removal and abatement in White Plains, NY begins the process by sending in an independent third-party testing company to sample the air.
If asbestos is detected, we dispatch our highly trained and experienced team to the site. Both licensed and insured, this team put their training to work and sets up a decontamination area, set apart from the rest of the building. By wetting the hazardous material and by use of negative air machines that suck any remaining asbestos out of the air, we keep any further contaminants from getting into the atmosphere while we begin removal of the asbestos. This is done by careful scraping and removing any asbestos found, which is then disposed of off-site.
Abatement then begins where we seal off any area we have exposed, carefully clean the zone with specialty filter vacs and have the air tested again. Only when the tests show that no asbestos remains do we put everything back where we found it and allow your family or workers back on to the site.
