Here at Double D Construction Services, Inc., we want to help you make your building the best it can be, and that means safely removing and disposing of any asbestos that may have been used in its initial construction. Asbestos used to be used for a wide variety of applications, so having some left over in your building is a more common problem than you might expect. If you have, or suspect you have, asbestos on your property, we encourage you to call our team to get professional asbestos abatement services. In this article, our team will be going over what you can expect from asbestos abatement so that you can be prepared for the process.
- Seal Work Area–The first step in asbestos abatement is to seal off the area in question. Our team at Double D Construction Services, Inc. will seal the air ducts, turn off the HVAC system, and set up negative pressure equipment to keep any asbestos fibers from escaping into the rest of the building. We’ll also seal the area off with plastic on the floors, walls, and ceilings to prevent damage to the surfaces not being treated.
- Remove Asbestos Material–After everything has been properly sealed, our team will start removing the asbestos-ridden material. Our technicians wear protective suits and personal air monitoring equipment to ensure their safety during this process, and seal all the removed material into proper disposal bags for removal in order to ensure the safety of everyone who uses that space in the future. After removal, we take all the asbestos material to designated facilities for disposal.
- Use HEPA Vacuum–The last step in asbestos abatement is to clean the area using a high-efficiency particulate air vacuum. The HEPA vacuum will ensure that any lingering airborne particles are captured so that they can be safely removed. Before we consider the job finished, our team at Double D Construction Services, Inc. will perform as many follow-up tests and repeat vacuum treatments as it takes to ensure no asbestos is left behind.
