Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos was used in spray-applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, vinyl tiles, sprayed acoustic ceiling (sometimes called “popcorn ceiling”), drywall joint compound, and a variety of other materials. Asbestos was banned in the US in 1978. However, since the ban allowed installers to use existing stocks, residential and commercial buildings, including schools, built as late as 1986 may still contain asbestos products.

Do not risk the health and safety of your family or others by ignoring the dangers of asbestos materials. The only way to verify whether or not your building contains asbestos products is to have it tested by a hygienist at a laboratory or an indoor air quality professional. The AbateX team is fully licensed and can remove asbestos quickly and safely.

Lead Abatement

Lead-based paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning. Lead based paint is believed to be present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention.

If your home or building was built before 1978, when the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, there is a higher probability it may contain lead-based paint. AbateX is trained and certified in the removal of lead based paint safely, effectively and quickly.

Mold Removal

Molds produce allergens, irritants and have the potential to cause health problems. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions such as hay fever-type symptoms, sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Molds can also cause asthma attacks and irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.

Mold can enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, heating and air conditioning systems. Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes and areas where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet fabric and upholstery. It can also attach itself to clothing, shoes, bags and pets as they can carry it indoors and out. Abatex is expert in successfully removing mold spores from residential and commercial buildings to achieve the accepted clearance levels.
