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 using sealed containments, proper negative air equipment, chemicals and sealants, as well as heavy duty personal protection. At Pro Response we safely remove asbestos containing materials under processes required by all Federal and State regulatory organizations including EPA, OSHA, and ANSI IICRC standards.
If your home was built previous to 1980 materials will be tested for possible ACM (asbestos containing materials) and the concentration of asbestos fibers within them. These possible ACMs include texture, joint compound, vinyl, mastic, roofing, and insulation. Concentrations equal to or greater than 1% require any disturbance in the area to be performed under Asbestos Abatement Procedures. Positive test results are provided with an Asbestos Removal Plan and estimate for removal.
Areas of possible exposure will be contained using double layered, 6 mil plastic and entry is restricted to decontamination chambers. All workers wear full-face respirators, full body tyvek suits, protective boots and gloves while working within contained areas.
To ensure exposure is minimized, all containment areas are put under negative pressure by HEPA Filtered Air Scrubbers and Negative Air Machines. Before work begins, our team will ensure the minimum negative pressure is reached and contained area is sealed properly.
All areas containing asbestos including walls of containment and decontamination chamber will be effectively cleaned. Through a process of HEPA vacuuming, wipe downs, chemical treatments, and encapsulating, we will ensure we achieve clearance the first time… every time!
Through a third party inspector, the air within the containment is tested for asbestos fibers. When clearance report is received and confirmed, the containment is taken down and clearance issued.
