You’d be hard pressed to find prettier country than that in Ulster County, New York and its county seat, Kingston, but hidden in that beauty is an ugly and dangerous secret: Asbestos. Any home or building erected before 1978 undoubtedly contains that hazardous mineral and it is crucial that it be removed before it makes even more Ulster County residents sick. We can help. We have been handling asbestos abatement and remediation in Kingston, NY and all over Ulster County for more than 25 years.
Asbestos was used as a building material in asbestos insulation and siding, asbestos plaster and sheetrock, flooring tiles and roofing shingles and, most often, in those vermiculite “popcorn” ceilings found almost everywhere in Kingston, New York. As the materials age and degrade, the asbestos is released into the air—and the lungs—of those exposed, causing cancer, Mesothelioma, pneumonia, Asbestosis and a host of other life-threatening illnesses.
An independent testing firm is sent in by us to sample the air for asbestos and if it is detected, we dispatch one of our extensively trained and experienced crews to your site. They set up a decontamination zone and use negative air machines to ensure that no more asbestos gets released into the air as we chip it away and remove it during abatement. Then all asbestos is bagged and disposed of off-site.
During remediation, we seal all exposed areas and carefully clean the entire zone with special filtered equipment. Then we have the air retested. If no asbestos is present, we sign off on the work and allow your family, employees or tenants back into your building, which has now been made safe.
