Asbestos Removal Process

Asbestos Abatement Process

The first steps in the asbestos abatement process that Asbestos Removal of Puget Sound, LLC performs is to set up a containment work area by sealing air ducts, disabling HVAC systems and setting up negative pressure equipment. Our asbestos abatement technicians will then place plastic sheeting on floors, walls and ceilings as needed to protect surfaces not being treated for asbestos. This helps to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers through your structure during the removal and cleaning process.

After a regulated and enclosed work area is established around the surfaces or areas where asbestos abatement is to be performed, technicians will put on special protective abatement suits and using personal air monitoring equipment will utilize hand tools to remove asbestos containing material. After removal, the asbestos material is then placed into asbestos abatement disposal waste bags, sealed and taken out of the facility in a waste decontamination unit and stored in a specially labeled trailer or dumpster designed with a protective poly lining.

After all asbestos materials are removed from the affected area, all abated surfaces and areas are wet wiped and vacuumed with a special high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum. HEPA cleaning ensures that any lingering asbestos particles in the air are removed. After the HEPA cleaning, air and surface samples will be performed to verify the successful removal of the asbestos.
