Asbestos Remediation Services in Atlanta
Commonly found in older buildings, asbestos is a name for naturally occurring fibrous minerals often used for insulation. This construction material is usually located around pipes, ceiling tiles, roofing shingles and floor tiles. The danger from asbestos comes when it becomes damaged and its thin fibers are released into the air. Inhalation of these fibers is a cause of severe health problems, including lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
At Design Core Construction we have the experience and skill to identify, contain and remove asbestos from commercial, healthcare and residential properties. Following the appropriate national standards and regulations, our team works conscientiously to ensure properties are safe for residents, workers and customers.
An Overview of the Asbestos Abatement Process
Our asbestos contractors work closely with clients to develop a customized schedule for fast and efficient removal. Here are some typical stages in the process.
With a comprehensive plan in place, our specialized workforce marks the hazardous locations and seals air ducts to contain the asbestos fibers.
In preparation for removal, asbestos-containing building materials (ACBMs) are identified and must be examined by a testing laboratory. Samples are taken, carefully sealed and accurately labeled.
During the removal process, asbestos is also sprayed with water to minimize the release of fibers. ACBMs are then cut or scraped from their locations and sealed in disposable bags or containers.
To further limit the dispersal of asbestos fibers, we use high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration. These high-tech vacuums capture airborne contaminants, creating a safe environment.
At all stages, we comply fully with strict asbestos disposal regulations. Components of the disposal phase include placing asbestos into heavy-duty bags, labeling the contents as hazardous waste, adhering to documentation requirements, along with transport to designated disposal sites.
Finally, the location is thoroughly cleaned with wet cloths, professional cleaning agents and multiple rounds of HEPA vacuuming. Air samples are analyzed to confirm that the location is safe for use. When required, we also provide construction services for restoration, along with other rehab solutions.
