Yorktown, New York’s modern legacy isn’t as glorious as its historic past; many of the older homes and commercial properties contain asbestos. Asbestos removal and asbestos abatement are vital jobs that our company has been specializing in for more than 25 years.
Used in asbestos shingles, siding, asbestos flooring, plaster, sheetrock, insulation and with asbestos being a main component used in “popcorn” ceilings, asbestos is found in almost every home and commercial property built before 1978.
And asbestos is a killer. The invisible fibers are breathed into the lungs of those exposed causing cancer, Asbestosis, Mesothelioma and other life-threatening lung diseases, so detection is crucial and abatement and removal are lifesavers.
Testing is done by air sampling conducted by an independent third-party testing firm we send to your home or property. If asbestos is found, we dispatch our extensively trained and experienced crew who sets up a safe zone, sealing off the hazardous area and making use of negative air machines to prevent further incursion of dangerous fibers into the air. After removal of the asbestos, hazardous material is bagged and then disposed of in a special off-site fill, according to regulations.
Abatement begins by all exposed areas being sealed with shellac and the area thoroughly cleaned using special filtering equipment. Afterwards the air is tested again and, only when it has been determined that all is safe, are your family or workers allowed back into the building.
