Asbestos can be a highly hazardous material for your Helena home that requires immediate attention and careful removal.

Why Should Homeowners Seek Professional Asbestos Abatement?

Our SERVPRO team trained professionals on our roster for asbestos cleaning in Helena homes to meet the demand for a reputable removal contractor for our vast service area. Because so many Montana homes were constructed before the 1980s, many common building materials and insulating elements were partly or wholly asbestos-based.

Some of these include:

  • Roof shingles
  • Vinyl flooring and mastic
  • Textured paint
  • Heat-resistant materials
  • Air duct coverings
  • Attic insulation

This carcinogenic substance can be hazardous to those directly exposed, and once fibers exist in an environment, they can become a long-term threat to the property. Once testing confirms that asbestos exists, our team can:

  • Establish work zones 
  • Begin air filtration
  • Remove necessary materials
  • Safely and legally discard them 

Containment Protocols to Protect Occupants of Your Helena Home

Containment is a vital aspect of asbestos cleaning in Helena. Not only do physical barriers need to be installed with thick plastic sheeting, but pathways that could allow fibers to travel to other areas of the property must get sealed off as well. These pathways include:

  • Vents
  • Registers
  • Doorways

Preventing the movement of potentially carcinogenic asbestos fibers begins with ensuring the HVAC system is shut down not to agitate work zones our SERVPRO team has established. These sealed construction zones allow better regulation of fibers and hazardous particulates with HEPA vacuums and air filtration equipment regularly used in conjunction with wet demolition.

Asbestos Cleaning and Removal in Your Helena Household

Once a thorough inspection has been conducted in the property and work zones have been established, our contractors understand the specific materials that must be removed and the potential risks of agitating these surfaces. The demolition process can widely spread fibers and asbestos particles when proper containment methods are not instilled. We meticulously and carefully remove problematic materials using wet strategies and bagging methods to reduce contamination. HEPA-filtration products can be instrumental in capturing possible circulating fibers from posing health threats. Some of these tools in our inventory include:

  • Negative pressure machines 
  • Air scrubbers
  • Hydroxyl generators

Appropriate Handling and Discarding of Hazardous Materials

Asbestos cleaning requires intricate removal practices that reduce the spread of harmful carcinogenic particles. Wet tactics can keep known ACBM products and materials damp to reduce the circulation of fibers. The appropriate handling of these materials protects your home and our abatement professionals while transporting it to a facility for elimination. We abide by state and federal regulations for the handling and specific disposal of hazardous materials.

Final Asbestos Cleaning in Your Helena Residence

Our SERVPRO team does not stop at discarding hazardous materials removed from your home. An asbestos abatement project is not complete until the work surfaces have been reinstalled, and any surfaces not involved with controlled demolition and calculated removal get cleaned with wet products, and the full exposure area has been thoroughly filtered using HEPA products and air quality control measures. We ensure that we have met the appropriate guidelines and criteria in the removal process before deconstructing containment barriers. 

If you suspect aging materials in your home might contain asbestos, let our SERVPRO of Helena & Great Falls professionals help clean and restore these hazardous conditions. We are available 24/7 at (406) 458-6008.
