Asbestos removal is the only permanent solution to the problem of asbestos in the home. Once it is gone, it's gone!

Asbestos removal, just by its very nature, causes a fiber release in your home. If this removal process it is not performed by a licensed company employing trained and licensed workers, irreparable "damage" can occur which could have a permanent impact on you and your family.

The removal process varies depending on what type of Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) we are removing. However, there are three key elements that are vital in all removal projects.

ACM = Asbestos-Containing Materials

1) A "Negative Pressure" Environment:
The isolation of the work area from the rest of the house is vital. This will ensure the asbestos fibers that are going to be released during the removal process will remain "contained". The use of a negative air machine inside a sealed containment filters the "dirty" air through a HEPA filter and exhausts it outside of the home. This negative pressure effect allows "clean" air from outside of the containment in, and prohibits dirty air from inside the containment from "leaking out" to other areas of the home. This process ensures the safest possible situation for you and your family.

2) Use of Water:
Water is the asbestos worker's best friend. The use of water drastically reduces the potential for asbestos fibers to become airborne. Remember, the ACM will become "disturbed" during the removal process. By keeping the material wet before, during, and after removal, you are minimizing the chance of airborne fibers.

3) "Final Clearance" Air testing:
In every case where a "containment" is involved, there needs to be a final clearance air test. How else do you the homeowner know if the work area is "fiber-free" before the contractor leaves? The actual testing (sample collection) and the sample analysis should be performed by an independent lab (someone other then the abatement contractor) to avoid "conflict of interest" issues.
