You wouldn’t knowingly put your family or workers at risk, yet if your home or commercial property in Somers, New York was built before 1978 and you have not had the asbestos removed, you may be doing just that. Almost all buildings erected before the late 1970’s contain asbestos. Asbestos removal and asbestos abatement is crucial and what our company has done for more than 25 years in the Somers, NY area.
The hazardous mineral, asbestos, was used in popcorn (vermiculite) ceiling, asbestos insulation and siding, sheetrock, plaster, asbestos roof and floor tiles and to wrap pipes in your walls. Over time, materials disintegrate and asbestos fibers are released, finding their way into the lungs of those exposed and causing such life-threatening illnesses as cancer, Asbestosis and Mesothelioma. But the first step to avoiding such dire health consequences is to detect the asbestos, which isn’t visible to the naked eye.
We send in an independent testing firm to sample the air of your building and, if asbestos is found, our licensed, insured and certified team established a decontamination zone on-site. Using heavy-grade plastic the area is sealed and negative air machines prevent any further asbestos form escaping into the air as we begin the painstaking process of abatement.
The asbestos is scraped info specialty bags or the offending materials is removed entirely and disposed of off-site. Once all asbestos has been removed, we seal the exposed areas with shellac and, through the use of filtered vacuums, carefully clean the entire zone.
Then the air is retested and we will not declare the job done until not a single trace of asbestos remains. Only then will we allow your family or workers to return. We pride ourselves on our thoroughness. Your health, that of your family and workers, and of all your neighbors in Somers, New York is important to us.
