Some of the most striking architecture is found in the Hudson Valley towns of Elmsford, New York, Tarrytown, New York and Valhalla, New York—and, because of the presence of asbestos –some of these buildings are the most deadly. Asbestos removal and asbestos abatement is therefore a critical need and one in which we specialize.
Our company has helped restore the healthy atmosphere, by removing asbestos, of private homes and commercial buildings in Elmsford, Tarrytown and Valhalla, NY for 25 years.
Asbestos was used for its strength and fire-retardant properties in almost all buildings erected before 1978 and the hazardous mineral can be found in roof tiles, sheetrock, asbestos flooring, plaster, asbestos insulation and, most commonly, in the ubiquitous “popcorn ceilings” found in many basement rec rooms and office buildings. As these materials start disintegrating over time, asbestos fibers are released into the air, and the lungs of residents and workers.
Our company sends in an independent third-party testing firm to check for the presence of asbestos. Once it is found, we swing into action, creating a decontamination zone around the area, sealing it off from the rest of the property. The materials are wetted to prevent further spread of the fibers into the air and negative air machines ensure no asbestos escapes into the atmosphere.
Once the asbestos has been removed and transported to a special landfill, abatement begins. We seal the exposed area with shellac, thoroughly clean the zone with filtered vacs and return everything to its original position—but it is now healthful and asbestos-free. Our crews are certified, licensed, insured and extensively trained to make certain the hazards are removed and the danger averted.
