WHEN YOU HAVE LEAD OR ASBESTOS IN YOUR HOME
Let our highly trained and certified technicians use the latest techniques to abate your property.
Only asbestos abatement professionals should handle, remove and dispose of asbestos. When asbestos is mishandled, the fibers may become airborne. Mishandling asbestos may lead to asbestos exposure which poses a risk of developing into asbestos-related diseases.
Property owners should treat any potential asbestos-containing material as dangerous. Individuals should not touch the materials and avoid the area until it can be tested.
AmeriTribe works with environmental companies that can test your property for Asbestos. If the samples contain asbestos AmeriTribe will suggest the next steps that should be taken. Depending on the situation we may recommend encapsulation or removal of the affected area.
The asbestos removal process:
Turn off HVAC units and seal vents to prevent asbestos fibers from circulating.
Seal off the work area with plastic sheeting.
Use wet cleanup tools and HEPA filter vacuums to clean the workspace.
Place all materials removed from the site inside clearly marked, leak-tight containers.
After asbestos abatement, AmeriTribe can safely dispose of the carcinogenic materials according to state and federal regulations.
