Asbestos Removal

 

DON’T MESS WITH ASBESTOS!

Asbestos may be found in residences, the workplace, construction, and home improvement projects. Asbestos exposure hazards are negligible if kept undisturbed. When asbestos is disturbed, extremely minute asbestos particles are released into the air, and when the fibers are breathed in, they can become lodged in the lungs, causing health concerns such as debilitating respiratory illness and different forms of malignancies over time.

Asbestos was utilized in spray­applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and a range of other materials in many structures. Asbestos was occasionally “flocked” above false ceilings, within technical ducts, and in a variety of other confined locations where firemen would struggle to get access. Asbestos panels were also employed as structural components.

Asbestos was frequently used as a component of a sort of flocked acoustic ceiling known as popcorn ceiling or “cottage cheese ceiling” in Lynnwood homes until its manufacturing was prohibited in the United States in 1978. The prohibition, however, permitted installers to use up remaining supplies, thus homes constructed as recently as 1986 might still contain asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. The only way to be certain is to take a sample and have it analyzed by a reputable laboratory.

The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) Regulatory Assistance Officers created a fact sheet to give general information on the hazardous waste requirements involved with producing, transporting, and disposing of asbestos waste.

Lynnwood Asbestos Removal

Lynnwood Asbestos Removal’s asbestos removal services are supported by years of combined experience in the detection, removal, and disposal of hazardous waste. Even in newer structures, asbestos may be found in floor tiles, ceiling texturing tiles, insulation, and fireproofing materials. As recently as 1990, asbestos-contaminated vermiculite insulation was utilized. While the EPA has prohibited various uses of asbestos, asbestos-containing products are nevertheless utilized in several industrial applications.

Customers should notify us prior to any remodeling or destruction if the presence of asbestos is suspected. To confirm the existence of asbestos, samples might be collected. Based on the substance and if it is friable (likely to be inhaled), a remediation solution may be designed to meet the demands of the client. To prevent asbestos fibers from entering the air, small quantities of asbestos can be encapsulated. Encapsulation is completely approved by the EPA and, depending on the application, may be the most cost-effective alternative.

If it is decided that asbestos must be removed, all demolition is carried out by qualified professionals, and the asbestos is disposed of in compliance with all federal, state, and local requirements. As appropriate, final documentation is supplied for client records. See the table below for additional information on our asbestos removal capabilities, or contact us personally.

Project Management

Project Management

While each project has its own set of requirements, typical responsibilities include:

  • Examining removal contractors’ technique statements, risk assessments, training records, face fit test results, and medicals, among other things, to verify compliance with rules and client needs.
  • Inspection and monitoring of equipment and the site environment, including housekeeping, plant, and equipment (negative pressure units, decontamination units, and HVACs)
  • Monitoring and advising the asbestos removal contractor on their methods and procedures to ensure specification compliance, suitable guidance, and agreed-upon work standards
  • Conduct audits of the removal contractors to ensure that they are following the Framework Client’s site safety policies, guidelines, and best practices.

What are my responsibilities?

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, it is the duty holder’s obligation to ensure that any asbestos is detected prior to the start of work. Employers shall not begin work unless an appropriate and sufficient evaluation (i.e. asbestos type, matrix, location, and condition) has been completed, with the goal of preventing or reducing possible asbestos exposures and reducing any hazards to the lowest practical level.

We operate independently of all certified asbestos removal companies (LARC) and exclusively provide asbestos inspection, testing, and consultation services. Internally, we have an independent assurance team that impartially monitors our performance, so you can be confident that your asbestos removal job is being reviewed objectively.

Understanding Asbestos Hazards

Understanding Asbestos Hazards

Although asbestos is not prohibited in the United States, its usage is restricted. However, asbestos-containing materials (ACM) continue to represent a risk to the public since they were widely used in the construction of houses, schools, and other facilities prior to the 1980s.

Asbestos abatement entails identifying, removing, repairing, and encapsulating components or goods in a structure to remove the risk of harmful asbestos fiber exposure. A competent asbestos abatement firm should do it.

Tips for Hiring an Asbestos Removal Company

Asbestos removal businesses are not all the same. Some solely provide asbestos removal services, whilst others include environmental services, demolition services, and general contracting services that may involve abatement. Asbestos removal rules differ from state to state and city to city within the United States, with some going beyond federal requirements requiring Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification. Homeowners are not compelled by law to employ a licensed asbestos removal firm, although it is strongly advised. Check the credentials of any asbestos removal business before employing them. Choose the one that best meets your requirements.

Diseases Caused By Asbestos

Asbestos fiber inhalation raises the chance of getting an asbestos-related illness. If you do any of the following, you may increase your chances of contracting this disease:

Workers who operate on or near damaged asbestos-containing products inhale asbestos fibre levels that are hundreds of times higher than ambient levels.

Disease symptoms may not show for a long period. Disease signs might emerge 20 to 30 years after asbestos exposure.

Asbestos is a hazardous material that was utilized in the construction and repair of numerous buildings between the 1940s and the 1970s. Asbestos includes hazardous chemicals that can injure the lungs and cause long-term health problems, such as certain cancers. Even modest amounts of exposure are thought to be very hazardous over time. The following are some examples of asbestos-containing construction materials:

  • Sprayed coatings and laggings – for example, pipe insulation
  • Sprayed asbestos and cement combination fire retardant – fire protection
  • Asbestos sprayed/loose packed – for example, as fire breaks in ceiling gaps
  • Insulating boards are used to guard against fire and to provide thermal insulation.
  • Asbestos cement products include roofing and wall cladding, as well as transite siding.
  • Certain textured coatings are used for ceiling and wall texture, as well as acoustic support.
  • Electrical equipment with asbestos-containing board or paper
  • Flooring materials such as floor tile and mastic, sheet linoleum, and leveling chemicals
  • Thermal System Insulation (TSI) refers to the insulation of pipes and boilers.
  • Ceiling tiles
