The Project File: West Chicago Asbestos Removal
Our Asbestos Project Management team headed out to a West Chicago home last month to perform an asbestos removal procedure from flooring tile. After an inspection and test, we confirmed the tiles contained asbestos, and the adhesive that connected the tile and subfloor was ridden with asbestos. When our team removes tiles with asbestos, we make sure to remove the adhesive too.
Our Safe Asbestos Removal Process
Before any asbestos is removed, we ensure the rest of the home is sealed in the area we’ll be working in from top to bottom with a 6mm plastic sheet. We’ll then make sure the HVAC system is shut off to prevent contamination to the rest of the home during the asbestos removal process. We install a HEPA exhaust system that will create negative pressure from inside the work area, and the system is vented outside through a carefully sealed window opening.
Our team is equipped with the right tools and knowledge to get the job done in a safe and timely manner. Once we’re in the proper protective gear, we’ll begin the process of carefully removing the tile and adhesive from the floor using a wet gross removal method. The dangerous materials are wrapped and sealed in double 6mm polyurethane bags, which are then placed in a 55-gallon sealed fiber drum for proper disposal.
When we’re hauling and disposing of the contaminated materials, we ensure that everything complies with all Federal, State, and local regulations. Once the fibers are removed, we HEPA vacuum, clean the area with amended water and collect another air sample. The air sample is taken by an IDPH licensed sampling professional to ensure all of the fibers are gone. Check out the before and after photos of the asbestos-ridden tile flooring in this suburban Chicago home.
