Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos abatement is a highly regulated and specialized process. There are many facets to the handling of asbestos that present when dealing with asbestos abatement. This becomes even more complicated when asbestos and asbestos containing materials are exposed or disturbed as a result of mishap or disaster.

At ServiceMaster Of Cornwall, our technicians are qualified and fully trained asbestos abatement professionals.

Our services include assessments, surveying, air sampling and reporting on asbestos containing materials, including vermiculite. Our technicians will assess the risk, select the most appropriate method of managing the problem, and perform the abatement operation.

Our technicians will use a variety of techniques to complete your inspection and analysis. These techniques could include:

Air Sampling – this will indicate if you have an asbestos problem and determine its severity.

Materials Sampling – we will determine the source of the airborne asbestos and confirm it with independent laboratory analysis if required.

Assessment of Asbestos – sometimes removal isn’t your best option depending on the condition of the asbestos.

Services


Most products made today do not contain asbestos. Those few products made which still contain asbestos that could be inhaled are required to be labeled as such. However, until the 1970s, many types of building products and insulation materials contained asbestos.

  • Roofing and siding shingles

ServiceMaster Restore

ServiceMaster workers were very courteous and tried to cause as little inconvenience as possible. They fully wanted to "get things back to normal". Even when obviously very busy with other issues, they tried to keep everything moving along at our house too. They were clean & tidy right through, and made sure everything was spick and span when they were finished. We were very impressed with their service.

On site, his team was professional, courteous and friendly. Would definitely hire them again

Dan, owner of Service Master, responded quickly to an emergency call after the wind storm claimed a sizeable section of my roof as another victim. My ceiling started leaking as a result of water damage, when my shingles were blown off. Both he, and Mike, the General Contractor, were very patient and understanding in explaining the procedures involved in reparing the damage to my home. At one point, one of my cats escaped through a basement window and when I notified them, they were very compassionate about the situation. Mike suggested that I return to my residence in the event that he returned, which he did. Immediately the following morning, Dan secured the basement window with reinforced screening in order to prevent a furture escape as well as provide much needed ventilation to my home during the repairs. Mike was consistently available to answer any questions that I had with regard to the ongoing work at my residence, was prompt with his follow-ups with any concerns that I voiced, and regularly gave progress reports during each stage up to the completion of the work order. During the final stages of repair, Dan did his personal inspection to make sure that all was in order. Both gentlemen were very approachable and professional. At some points they went that extra mile to offer their services. They, and their support staff, completed the repairs in a timely manner and paid attention to detail to insure that the home owner (me) was satisfied. Many thanks to Dan, Mike and the crew (roofers, painters, clean up staff and anyone I may have inadvertently missed) for making my house a home again.
