Asbestos Removal

Asbestos removal services are often demanded by people for old constructed buildings. In the early 20’s to the 90’s Asbestos was widely used in construction materials like reinforcing components or as material for thermal, electrical, or acoustic insulation. It is capable of silently causing mesothelioma (cancer that affects the lining of the lungs and the lining surrounding the lower digestive tract), lung cancer, asbestosis, and pleural thickening. These four diseases often take more than a decade to develop.

Asbestos removal is not a simple matter. It not only takes a lot of strength and time, but it also requires an extensive amount of knowledge, experience, testing, technique, and expertise, as it is hard to detect because asbestos is often mixed with other materials. Asbestos removal is a job that should be done by an expert and certified team.

We ensure that all asbestos waste and any other contaminated waste are arranged in sealed containers and labeled properly. According to Safe Work Practices for Handling Asbestos, asbestos must be double-bagged in 6 mil poly bags, sealed with duct tape and label. A prior settlement should be done with the authorities to transport any hazardous waste to assigned landfills.

Our experience enables us to do a hassle-free job, always considering the environment and trying to recover all materials that can be recycled and reused.
