Asbestos Removal

Asbestos was once widely used in construction materials because of its durability, heat resistance, and insulation properties. However, it is now recognized as a hazardous material that poses a significant risk to our health. In other words, exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to serious respiratory illnesses. If you suspect that your home or commercial property may contain asbestos, Watermark Restoration Solutions is here to provide safe and dependable asbestos removal services.

The Dangers of Asbestos

If your home was built before 1981, assume there could be some asbestos present. The older the home, the higher percentage chance asbestos will be found in materials. These materials are not dangerous in their undisturbed form. Certified through the IICRC, our Master Water Restorer provides training to all Watermark Restoration Solutions employees to best recognize when a particular building material could be asbestos containing. These specific materials include, but are not limited to:

  • Insulation

  • Ceiling tiles

  • Popcorn ceiling texture

  • Gypsum compound (mud)

  • Plaster

  • Vinyl tile

  • Sheet goods

  • And more

It is important to leave asbestos abatement to the pros. Asbestos abatement companies have the experience and training necessary to safely remove asbestos-containing materials. They will take all necessary precautions to protect the health of their workers and the people living or working in the building.

How Do We Conduct Asbestos Abatement?

Watermark Restoration Solutions is proud to be your leading source for proper asbestos removal. During the removal process, we follow a thorough plan set forth by the IICRC, which includes:

  • Containment: We utilize thick plastic that acts as a critical barrier, containing the affected area where we are working from the rest of the home.

  • Isolation: Our experts properly isolate any HVAC systems on the property to ensure asbestos is not spread. Furthermore, we utilize amended water on affected materials, limiting the spread into the air.

  • Specialized equipment: From HEPA vacuuming to HEPA air filtration device to air scrubbers, Watermark Restoration Solutions has the state-of-the-art equipment to properly remove asbestos.

  • Controlled disposal methods: There are laws that regulate how asbestos containing materials should be disposed. To ensure we not only abide by the law, but protect the environment, our professionals utilize a specialized disposal method following treatment.

  • Insulation vacuums: Our top-grade machines work to suck up asbestos, routing it outside of your property to ensure safe and effective removal.

  • Industrial hygienists: Checks and balances are critical when it comes to asbestos removal. That’s why we work with an independent industrial hygienist to test the air before and after treatment, ensuring all asbestos containing materials have been removed.
