Sometimes you don’t even see trouble coming and, if you own a home or commercial property built before 1978 in Newburgh, NY, this is literally true. The danger you face from asbestos in your building and asbestos is invisible to the naked eye. As part of being the leading asbestos abatement and remediation company in Newburgh, NY, we send in a testing firm to sample the air of your building and, if asbestos is found, we get right to work.
The reason asbestos is likely to be found is that, until the late 1970’s, asbestos was used in asbestos insulation, siding, roof shingles, floor tiles, asbestos sheetrock and plastic and vermiculite “popcorn” ceilings to name just a few of the building materials which contained this hazardous material. As these buildings age, the materials degrade, releasing asbestos fibers into the air.
When breathed in by those exposed, the asbestos causes pneumonia, cancer, Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and a slew of other life-threatening illnesses. We get rid of that hazard by sending in our highly trained and experienced team to seal off the contaminated area, using negative air machines to avoid further release of asbestos during the abatement process. They then scrape off all traces of asbestos, bag it and transport it off-site to a designated fill.
In remediation, the team seals off all areas formerly containing asbestos with an industrial shellac, clean the zone around it with filter equipment and then have the air retested. If no asbestos is found, we put the premises back the way we originally found them and declare the building safe and ready for your family or workers to come back inside.
