Asbestos is a prominent construction material of the past whose remnants we are still removing today.

What is it? A non-combustible, inorganic fiber.

Why is it harmful? Its airborne fibers cause major health risks.

Where might it be found? In various construction materials.

Who to go to for assistance? Restoration Management Company.

When are ideal times for removal? Spring and summer.

Asbestos is an inorganic fiber that was once considered a useful addition to construction materials, like roofing, insulation, tiling, and more. Asbestos helped improve different materials by reducing heat, absorbing sound, and increasing durability among other qualities.

Unfortunately, asbestos is known to produce terrible side effects. If its fibers are inhaled for prolonged periods of time, there are serious health risks such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. As a result, the U.S. began phasing out asbestos use in the 70’s.

Today, our national Environmental Protection Agency lists the many bans on types of asbestos use and dictates where and how the material is permitted to remain in buildings constructed prior to introduction of regulations.

Asbestos is still found in many older buildings like public schools, government buildings, older office complexes and residential construction. With known health consequences, many owners and occupants of these structures are working to remove all traces of asbestos material.

 

This is where Restoration Management Company can help!

 

 

We at Restoration Management Company have many highly trained and certified technicians who work to safely and effectively remove asbestos from any property type. We can remove materials, help improve safety, and restore buildings, while working closely with clients to meet building preservation expectations.

For many building types, especially schools, spring and summer breaks are the prime times to address asbestos abatement. When fewer employees are present, students are away on scheduled breaks, or more families are off work on vacation, the spring and summer months are great seasons to plan for asbestos removal. This strategic timing especially helps property sites limit asbestos exposure for the duration of the project.

If you are a building owner, school administrator, or in facilities with ties to a property with asbestos issues, please reach out to Restoration Management Company. You can find details of our abatement process and client testimonials here on our website.

We would be honored to help you identify remedies and next steps for improving building safety!

10 steps for mold remediation:

1. Perform a thorough preliminary inspection using state of the art tools. i.e.: Thermo imaging cameras and moisture equipment to determine the precise scope of work. Don’t guess.

2. Choose good hygienists that are trained in providing reliable protocols, if needed.

3. Set up proper engineering controls:
a) 6 ml air tight containments
b) establish negative air inside containments to ensure no cross contamination happens.

4. Use quality equipment (HEPA filter) that has been DOP tested to ensure they are working properly.

5. Constantly cleanup work areas to avoid cross contamination.

6. Seal all debris in 6 ml bags to control the environment and also avoid cross contamination.

7. Thorough cleaning of all surfaces by HEPA sanding, or ice blasting followed by HEPA vacuuming, then wet wipe followed by second round of HEPA vacuuming.

8. Do a thorough visual inspection to ensure work is ready for post remediation testing.

9. Allow proper air scrubbing time with HEPA filters prior to post testing as directed in protocols.

10. Call for post remediation testing and insist on testing inside and outside of containments to make sure all areas are cleared before containments are removed.

11. Remove containments after clearances. Make sure all areas are clean, safe and ready for next stage of repairs.
