Asbestos Abatement and Removal for Homes, Rentals, and More in the Columbus, OH Area
Asbestos abatement is an issue for many American homes built before 1980. Particularly for homes built in the 1960s and 1970s, it is likely that asbestos could be lurking somewhere inside. Exposure to asbestos fibers from crumbling insulation or chipped paint can lead to asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other potentially fatal lung diseases. Infants and children are especially vulnerable.
Protecting people and the environment from asbestos is why only fully trained professionals like the abatement team at Hina Environmental Solutions, LLC in Columbus, OH are certified to perform it.
Asbestos Survey and Testing
We offer fully OSHA- and NESHAPS-compliant, AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act)-certified asbestos surveys and testing for single-family homeowners in Columbus, as well as for multi-family dwellings, and residential rentals, among our other services.
Homeowners who plan to demolish need to have a full AHERA Survey for Demolition done before beginning work. The AHERA survey tests building materials throughout the entire home and reports their location, composition, and if asbestos is present, whether it is friable (crumbling or decomposing), and thus poses a danger.
Remodeling or renovating a residence without demolishing may only require asbestos testing of those materials likely to be disturbed during construction. Testing analyzes samples from potential asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) like popcorn ceilings, vinyl flooring, roofing materials, plaster/drywall, and the like. Homeowners should request testing for any structure not entirely built of wood, glass, or metal. If tests are positive for friable ACMs, they must be abated before renovations can start.
Our turnkey asbestos removal services not only provide the most complete, permanent solution for residential asbestos abatement issues, but also protect inhabitants, workers, and the environment from contamination during and after abatement.
We tightly seal all or part of a home behind heavy-duty plastic barriers to prevent the dispersion of asbestos fibers while we dismantle the ACMs. We use wet mops, sponges, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuums to eliminate all dust and debris, and safely dispose of all contaminated material. Our job is right only after our client’s safety is assured, all ACMs are abated, and we’ve exceeded both standards and expectations.
