What to Expect on the Day of Asbestos Abatement in your San Diego Property

Posted by CVE Corp. on Sep 15, 2018 11:55:00 AM

Prior to 1990, many home bathrooms were built using asbestos sheeting due to its durability, simplicity, and waterproof nature. But asbestos when disturbed can irritate the lung tissue and cause health problems, which can be a danger to homeowners and property owners. Our team at CVE Corp. has over 25 years of industry experience, the latest technology, and innovative techniques, and highly educated employees. If you're wondering what to expect from asbestos abatement removal in San Diego, we're here to let you know.

 Paperwork, Assessment, and Notifications

 Residential and commercial properties have their own regulations and varies by county. Homes can be done, in most cases one day in advance, and commercial properties require at least 10 days. The only exception is in urgent situations, such as broken asbestos sheeting or a flood. Afterward, there is a safety meeting where the team goes over the job and begins determining tasks. Finally, neighbors are informed of the situation to keep everyone safe and barricades and signage and installed.

 Isolation, Removal, and Decontamination

 Next, our team isolates the work area by creating a barrier to ensure that everyone is kept safe. Often, this is accomplished using layers of 200 µm plastics to close off hallways and doors. Now the team begins to work on carefully removing asbestos sheets and renailing and decontaminating timber using asbestos vacuums. This is followed by applying an encapsulation spray to the frame

 Inspection and Transportation

 The final steps are inspection and transportation. After determining that the job is complete and issuing a clearance certificate, we load the asbestos sheeting into a trailer and transport it to a registered waste facility.
