Asbestos Removal Services
EAI has over 30 years of experience in asbestos removal.
EAI has the experience you will need in managing and removing all types of asbestos-containing materials. We have worked in various facilities throughout the Southeast for over 30 years, and we are capable of managing all of your asbestos removal needs.
Visit our projects page to view all the projects we’ve worked on including structural fireproofing and re-spray of new materials, thermal systems, textured ceilings, floor tile, adhesives, transit siding, crawlspace soils, roofing, and other materials containing asbestos.
Full containment is used when removing friable asbestos material from large areas, or when using mechanical methods of removal, which will cause the asbestos to become friable.
We construct a fully-contained and sealed enclosure to prevent asbestos from becoming airborne, and install HEPA air scrubbers for air treatment. We then set up a 3-stage decontamination area with a dirty room, shower, and clean room. We spray all friable asbestos with amended water that contains a surfactant. Once removed, the asbestos is sealed, and placed into a poly-lined dumpster and disposed of in an asbestos-certified landfill.
Industrial Asbestos Removal
At industrial facilities, pipes, boilers, siding, flooring, and roofing can house asbestos-containing materials. Hiring an experienced team is crucial for dealing with these situations. Many times, scaffolding is required to reach certain areas in the facility, and often, the asbestos must be removed without disrupting the operation of the industrial facility.
Most industrial facilities have pre-determined shutdowns or outages for routine maintenance. EAI has extensive experience collaborating with facilities and other tradesmen to ensure our work is completed with minimal interference.
Lagging is a type of thermal insulation that is applied to the surface of steam pipes, boilers, and other equipment. It helps prevent heat from escaping to the outside and causing a fire danger. The use of asbestos in building materials was banned in 1979, but asbestos-based lagging is still found in many buildings.
Asbestos lagging could take any one of several forms. One of the most common types of asbestos lagging involved the use of a type of asbestos fabric, such as canvas or a specific kind of wrapping material.
EAI can encapsulate lagging with a resin polymer, preventing it from crumbling and releasing fibers into the environment.
