Your dedicated project manager will draft an asbestos abatement plan after conducting a thorough consultation. An asbestos abatement plan is a detailed description of how the presence of asbestos will be addressed in the home or building. Your project manger will go over this plan with you in detail and customize it to best suit your jobs specific needs because no one job is exactly alike.
Following the abatement plan put together by the project manager, we can efficiently start your project. The preparation is the largest part of the process, generally taking up about 50% of the project. All critical areas are contained, and the work area is sealed off to establish a regulated work area for all abatement work to begin. The use of negative air machines and a 3-stage decontamination unit guarantees your home or building will be free of any harmful asbestos fibers in the air while abatement work is being performed.
Once the area has been fully contained, the abatement work may begin. A-Best only practices the safest and highest level of removal techniques. Due to the various types of asbestos materials, the removal method being used is job specific. There is always a licensed supervisor on site responsible for making sure your job is getting done the right way. Once all asbestos has been safely removed, we haul it off site and transport it to an EPA approved landfill.
When all asbestos has been removed and safely disposed of, A-Best contacts a state licensed third party industrial hygienist. Their job is to make sure we have kept our promise in making your home or building safe from harmful asbestos fibers released during the abatement process. They conduct a thorough visual inspection to verify all asbestos has been removed. Finally, and most importantly, they take air samples inside the regulated work area to guarantee that the air is clean and safe to reoccupy the space.
When the Hygienist gives us the approval that the work area is asbestos free and the air is clean, we begin out demobilization process. We begin by taking down all protective barriers that were put up and remove all tools and equipment. We leave the work area clean, safe, and ready for the renovation or demolition process to begin. A crucial part to this process, and the key to our success, is the final walk through. The final walk through is done with the supervisor and/or your project manager. In this step, we make it our mission to answer any final questions you may still have. We do not leave until you are completely satisfied with the work we have done.
Now that your facility is asbestos free, it is time for the sixth and final step. A-Best will prepare your close out package with all necessary information regarding your abatement project. This includes the following: a certified completion certificate, air test results, and waste manifest. With these three things you will be able to sell, demolish, or renovate your property legally with no headaches. Please don’t hesitate to contact us directly via phone or email for more clarification on any part of our proven process.
