EFFECTIVE ASBESTOS CONTAINMENT & ABATEMENT
OUR SECURE 3 STAGE PROCESS:
- BAGGING UP ASBESTOS MATERIALS INSIDE OF CONTAINMENT. ALL OF OUR PROCEDURES USE BEST PRACTICES AS ESTABLISHED BY THE UTAH DIVISION OF AIR QUALITY AND EPA.
- BAGS ARE THEN TRANSFERRED TO A “DIRTY ROOM” AND THEN PASSED THROUGH A DECONTAMINATION SHOWER.
- BAGS ARE THEN PLACED IN A CLEAN ROOM FOR DISPOSAL.
It is our top priority to ensure that there is no cross contamination on site. We implement the use of a HEPA Air Scrubber that completes 4-6 air exchanges per hour to clean the air while working inside containment. The HEPA Air Scrubber also acts as an oversized air vacuum cleaner that creates negative air pressure. Once the circulated air is pushed back through the HEPA filter we can achieve 99.97% efficient air quality down to .3 microns for particulates.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Asbestos can affect home values when it comes to selling your home. Many buyers are leery of living in a home that has asbestos depending on its nature.
Every asbestos containing material should be handled on a case-by-case basis. Not all materials that contain asbestos are harmful. Consult a certified asbestos contractor for the best approach to these materials.
That is a hard question to answer definitively. If asbestos fibers have become airborne that is one indicator. Natural levels of asbestos fibers exist in the air at any given time. When it becomes concerning is if there has been extensive or long-term exposure.
Touching asbestos is not necessarily a bad thing. Materials like floor tiles, linoleum, and popcorn ceilings for example, are not harmful to handle. Breathing in asbestos fibers that have been disturbed is of more concern.
Each environment is different. There are natural levels of asbestos fibers in the air at any given time. The only way to really know if there are elevated levels of asbestos fibers in the air is to perform air testing.
N95 masks are, in fact, NOT adequate to safely protect you from inhaling asbestos.
Asbestos removal is determined by the material and scope of the removal project.
Do your homework if you plan to expose yourself to asbestos containing materials. Use safety for yourself and others that may be exposed in the process. Consulting a certified asbestos contractor will give you another option that may be worth considering.
