Our Work Process
The abatement team creates a chambered barrier system that ensures uncontaminated parts of the building remain clean and that all asbestos is removed from the affected areas.
Step one is totally sealing off the work site using polyethylene sheeting. All openings which could allow air to pass through are completely sealed. This tenting process will eventually help create an airtight, negative pressure system work space once large HEPA filters are installed and activated.
Next, a decontamination chamber is then built which allows workers to move in and out of the work area. Four different sets of flapped door coverings permit air to move in, but then shut to exclude inside air from flowing out.
The third step is using HEPA air filters to create a negative air-pressure system. These air filters are capable of filtering up large volumes of air based on the volume of the workspace.
Our HEPA filters:
1. Constantly push contaminated air toward the air intakes, clearing airborne asbestos contamination even as it is being created by workers who are disturbing asbestos materials.
2. Prevent airborne contamination from leaving the work area through the constant inward rush of air through the decontamination chamber.
3. Process the air during the final clean-up phase to remove any residual amounts of asbestos that may remain aloft after the asbestos materials have been removed from the site.
Negative-pressure filtration also helps to protect our abatement team by constantly cleaning the air inside the site. These negative air machines run constantly throughout the project until the air is tested and proven to meet EPA air quality standards.
