The Hudson Valley towns of Montrose, New York and Croton-On-Hudson, New York owe a lot of their charm to their older homes and businesses, but it is just the age of those buildings that are the reason so many are dangerous—they harbor asbestos and that asbestos needs to be removed and abated immediately and the sites made safe again. Our company can help.
With more than 25 years experience in dealing with the dangers of asbestos in Montrose and Croton-On-Hudson, NY, we know the first step is in establishing the presence of this deadly mineral. It is true that most homes and commercial spaces erected prior to 1978 have asbestos in their building materials. Known for its fire-retardant properties and strength, asbestos was used in roof shingles, plaster, sheetrock, floor tiles, asbestos siding and insulation until it was discovered it caused such illnesses as cancer, pneumonia and the lung-destroying Mesothelioma.
Since its fibers are not detectable with the naked eye, air sampling is required to determine the presence of asbestos. We send in an independent third-party to sample the air and, when asbestos is detected, our certified, licensed and insured crews go on site.
Making use of their extensive training, our team set up a decontamination zone. Wetting techniques and negative air machines ensure that no asbestos fibers are released into the air during the asbestos removal process.
When all hazardous material has been removed and disposed off according to regulations, the asbestos abatement process starts. Exposed areas are shellacked and the entire zone thoroughly cleaned with special vacs equipped with HEPA filters. Air sampling happens once more to see that no more asbestos remains before we deem the job completed and your home or commercial building safe for you to reenter.
