Asbestos Abatement

RMC’s staff of trained and licensed professionals use the most up-to-date techniques to ensure safe and cost-effective asbestos abatement.

Asbestos Clean-Up Process

Key factors in successful asbestos abatement and remediation projects are management, communication and control. Asbestos is a known carcinogen linked to Asbestosis, Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer. This substance was widely used in the past because of its resistance to burning, corrosion, and electrical conductivity; as well as its ability to provide increased strength and durability when mixed with other materials. Our extensive experience working with asbestos enables us to provide realistic solutions associated with the removal or encapsulation of asbestos whenever it may be discovered.

RMC handles all aspects of these important projects including:

  • Interior demolition and cleaning
  • Emergency containments
  • Estimates and consulting services
  • Coordination for asbestos identification and post-remediation clearances
  • Adherence to federal, state, and local regulations

The Abatement and Remediation Process

  • Evaluate the space of removal and design the process
  • Notify OSHA and air quality district if required
  • Work with supervisor to pick the appropriate skilled crew for the project
  • Safety meeting and documentation prior to start
  • Set critical seals as appropriate over windows doors and HVAC system
  • Set up decontamination chambers and negative pressure equipment
  • Wet materials to be removed
  • Monitor a percentage of employees with personal air pumps
  • Hand remove or mechanical strip asbestos materials as appropriate
  • Bag and seal waste for transport
  • Detail clean work area including HEPA vacuuming and turn over for clearance testing
  • With favorable results – teardown containment – clean and return to owner for rebuild
