Asbestos Removal Contractors in Tempe Describe the Safe Manner in Which They Perform This Process
Mesa, Arizona-based Dry Star Restoration is a company that is often called upon to perform one of several different damage or other mitigation services that they offer. The most hazardous of which is asbestos removal. These asbestos removal contractors in Tempe approach this job very carefully because of the potential health hazards that improper asbestos removal can create for their crews and for those who reoccupy a home or building once the asbestos has been removed from it. Richard Appel, the company’s mitigation manager, even took time out to explain the process that they use to get this important task done safely and responsibly.
Appel says, “It would be an understatement to say that asbestos is one of the hardest substances to work with when we go to remove it. That’s because many of the materials it’s found in can easily put harmful microscopic size asbestos particles into the air as they are handled. It’s the reason why we follow the strict guidelines that are set up by the government for the removal of this substance and we even take this a step further with additional precautions we have developed over the years through our vast experience removing this material. The careful and safe manner in which we remove asbestos is why we have become one of the most recommended company’s in Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, and the surrounding areas for doing this service.”
The company’s mitigation manager went on to say that as was mentioned, it’s the dangers presented by tiny asbestos fibers in the air that force them to take so many precautions when doing asbestos removal. This is because once asbestos particles get inside someone’s lungs, their body has a very hard time getting rid of them and this leads to several potential health risks. The most common of which are severe illnesses such as lung cancer, Mesothelioma, and Asbestosis (scarring of the lung tissue). Mesothelioma in particular has been in the news much recently because of the devastating effect it can have on a person’s abdominal cavity and lungs. He says this is why it’s so important not only to remove asbestos from the homes and businesses that it’s found in but to also do it in the safest possible way. Appel also said that many people are under the impression that there is not much asbestos left in homes and building these days but that would be wrong. That’s because due to its strength and heat resistance, asbestos was used in a large variety of products. He stated that this includes insulating materials, ceiling tiles, siding, floor tile, asphalt shingle, and wallboard. So it still exists in many homes and businesses to this day. It was also mentioned that nobody should attempt to remove asbestos unless they are professionals such as them who have the experience and equipment to do the job safely. This applies to fire damage repairs in Tempe and the other restoration services that they offer too.
Appel then went on to talk about some of the precautions that his crew takes when they undertake an asbestos abatement project. It all starts with the encapsulation of the area where asbestos removal is taking place to seal it off from other rooms. Airflow through the working area is also restricted during this process for obvious reasons. He says there are times where they even feel the need to spray down an area with water to knock potential hazardous floating fibrils to the ground. It was noted that Dry Star Restoration’s crews work in protective equipment the entire time that they are doing this task. They will also periodically use specially designed vacuums to eliminate asbestos particles as they work and all of the materials from the job are placed in sealed bags that are designed specifically for this process. Workers are even required to shower in a special setup before they are allowed to put on their street clothes at the end of the day. The company’s asbestos mitigation manager reiterated that their crews have the knowledge, licensing, and equipment to safely and efficiently do this job every time.
In addition to asbestos abatement, the company also can help minimize the effects of damage from a fire, perform water damage repairs in Phoenix, undertake mold remediation, and more.
