ASBESTOS TESTING & ABATEMENT

Asbestos Testing & Abatement

ASBESTOS TESTING 

For The Areas Around Westchester, White Plains & New York, NY

Once hailed as a “miracle” mineral, asbestos has been used since the early 1900’s in many products and building supplies. Asbestos can be found in homes and business, especially ones build in and before the 1970’s. Common uses for asbestos are: roofing materials, spray coating insulation, floor coverings, 9″x9″ floor tiles, textured wall and ceiling surfaces, attic insulation, heating pipe insulation, and more.

At Exclusive Testing Labs Inc. we have the ability to test for asbestos containing materials, and provide removal solutions to make your home or property safe. For more information about the asbestos testing services we offer to the White Plains and New York, NY area, contact us today

Air Sampling – Using an air sampling device, we have the ability to test for tiny airborne asbestos fibers. The air sampling device is comprised of a specialized filter and an air pump designed to draw air into the filter for testing. This filter is then sent to a lab to test for asbestos containing materials.

Bulk Sampling –Using extreme caution, our highly trained and EPA certified technicians will take small samples of the materials in question. These samples are then sent to a lab to test for asbestos containing materials.

ASBESTOS ABATEMENT

When asbestos is found in your home, it is imperative to hire a licensed contractor to remove the hazard safely and efficiently. As your liaison, ETL will ensure that the abatement handlers and supervisors have attended training on the safe handling and removal of asbestos and are all certified by the Department of Labor.

Exclusive Testing Labs Inc., will monitor the abatement project to ensure the use the following safety procedures, along with others when abating asbestos from your home or work space. The best way to eliminate the threat of asbestos is to remove it entirely.
Containment - Using a minimum of 6 millimeter plastic sheeting, we will create a double walled barrier between the work area/areas and the other parts of the home. We will also seal off any and all duct work and vents, all in order to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers.

Personal Protection Equipment – Protective gear that is worn at all times at the work site, this includes but is not limited to gloves, goggles, HEPA respirators, shoe covers, and disposable coveralls.

Negative Air Pressure –Using a 99.97% HEPA vacuum, we will create within the containment area an environment in which all particles of any size, including microscopic fibers and dust particles, fall to the ground.

Air Scrubbing –Using a 99.97% HEPA vacuum with a Micro Trap, we will “scrub” or filter all of the air within the areas in which we work, both during all abatement actions and afterwards to ensure that all of the air within the space is clean and free of asbestos fibers and harmful contaminates.
