Asbestos Abatement

Rhode Island Restoration offers professional, licensed asbestos abatement services to Rhode Island homeowners.

Asbestos is a natural mineral that was commonly used up until the late 1970s, in residential housing due to its desirable properties. Asbestos possesses heat resistance, durability, and insulating qualities, which made it an attractive material for various construction purposes. It was widely utilized in building materials such as ceiling and floor tiles, insulation around pipes and boilers, roofing materials, and even in some forms of textured paint. Its affordability and effectiveness in fireproofing and insulation made it a popular choice in construction from the early 20th century until the late 1970s when its health hazards became widely recognized.

Attempting to Remove Asbestos On Your Own Can Pose Serious Health Risks and Possible Legal Consequences.

Despite its beneficial properties, exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to severe health issues such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis, prompting its phased-out use and necessitating specialized removal services like those offered by Rhode Island Restoration to ensure the safety of residential properties.

Attempting to remove asbestos on your own can pose serious health risks and legal consequences. In Rhode Island, strict regulations govern the handling, removal, and disposal of asbestos-containing materials to protect public health and the environment.

Asbestos fibers, when disturbed, can become airborne and easily inhaled, leading to serious respiratory diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma. Without proper training, equipment, and containment measures, DIY asbestos removal can result in widespread contamination of the home and surrounding areas, putting yourself and others at risk.

The asbestos abatement process

  1. Assessment: The process begins with a thorough inspection of the property by trained professionals to identify areas containing asbestos. This may involve sampling and testing materials suspected of containing asbestos.
  1. Planning: Based on the assessment, a detailed abatement plan is developed. This plan outlines the scope of work, containment measures, removal techniques, safety protocols, and waste disposal procedures.
  1. Containment: Before any work begins, the work area is sealed off to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers to other parts of the building. This typically involves using plastic sheeting and negative air pressure systems to create a contained workspace.
  1. Preparation: Prior to removal, surfaces containing asbestos may be wetted down to minimize the release of fibers into the air. Workers don appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including respirators, disposable coveralls, gloves, and eye protection.
  1. Removal: Trained and certified abatement professionals carefully remove asbestos-containing materials using specialized techniques and tools. Depending on the material, removal methods may include wetting, scraping, cutting, or encapsulation.
  1. Cleaning: After removal, the work area is thoroughly cleaned using HEPA vacuums and damp wiping to ensure all asbestos fibers are removed from surfaces.
  1. Decontamination: Workers undergo a strict decontamination process to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers outside the work area. This typically involves removing PPE in a designated decontamination area and showering before exiting.
  1. Air Monitoring: Throughout the abatement process, air quality is continuously monitored to ensure that asbestos levels remain below regulatory limits. Clearance testing is conducted after abatement to confirm that the area is safe for reoccupation.
  1. Disposal: Asbestos-containing materials are carefully packaged, labeled, and transported to licensed disposal facilities for proper disposal in accordance with local regulations.
  1. Documentation: Comprehensive records are maintained throughout the abatement process, including assessment reports, abatement plans, air monitoring results, and disposal manifests.
