Asbestos is one of the most dangerous materials inside of your home or business. It is linked to multiple life threatening illnesses and must be removed correctly. At Pro Response we safely remove asbestos containing materials under processes required by all regulatory organizations including the EPA and OSHA.
If your home was built previous to 1980 we will test possible ACM (asbestos containing materials) for concentration of asbestos within them. These materials include texture, joint compound, vinyl, mastic, and insulation. Concentrations over 1% require an Asbestos Abatement with typical concentrations between 2% – 5%. You will receive the report with an Asbestos Removal Plan and estimate for work to be done.
Areas of possible exposure will be contained using double layered, 6 mil plastic. Entry and exit of containment is through a decontamination chamber. Containment is sealed and checked for possible failure and negative pressure. All workers wear full-face respirators with HEPA grade filters, full body tyvek suits, and protective gloves when entering and exiting contained areas.
To ensure no exposure is possible all containment areas are put under negative pressure by HEPA filtered air scrubbers. Before work begins, our team will ensure the minimum negative pressure is reached and containment is safe to begin.
All areas containing asbestos including walls of containment and decontamination chamber will be effectively cleaned. Through a process of HEPA vacuuming, wipe downs, chemical treatements, and encapselating, we will ensure we achieve clearance the first time… every time!
Through a third party inspector, we will test the air within the containment for contaminants. When clearance report is received and confirmed, we will remove containment and final clean to complete the work.
