Hand Removal of ACM
ARC Abatement recently completed two commercial projects that required hand removal of asbestos-containing materials using wet methods under negative pressure. First, in Commerce, TX, we removed 470 SF of flooring in a retail building. South of Commerce, at the New Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Terrell, TX, we removed by hand approximately 850 SF of flooring. Six ARC technicians abated the entryway, women’s room, and men’s room. We also abated baseboards and drywall in the Sanctuary, children’s room, men’s room, and Pastor’s office.
Our Colorado team completed 55 disinfecting jobs since March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Projects include consultations on disinfecting services tailored to the client’s facility to actually performing the work. Fortunately, our crews are uniquely prepared due to our years of experience in dealing with environmental and biological contaminants. All work is being performed under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines using EPA-approved surface disinfectants.
Motor Bank Abatement
In the outer motor bank area of Frost Bank in Addison, Texas, we abated, removed, and disposed of approximately 979 square feet of vinyl tile and black mastic. As you may know, prior to the 1990s, asbestos in cements, mastics, and sealants were commonly mixed in adhesives and used in construction. These toxic fibers from dried-out asbestos adhesives are still present in millions of old structures, such as this bank, and could be released during renovations. Our crew of five completed the project in a single day.
Church Asbestos Abatement
It took our crew of six less than a week to complete an asbestos abatement job at a church southeast of downtown Dallas. We removed approximately 2,700 asbestos-containing floor tile and mastic in the sanctuary. The project required detailed cleaning of the asbestos debris/residue that adhered to the exposed wooden studs in the sanctuary and rooms behind the stage area. We also decontaminated the sanctuary and associated rooms. Churchgoers can be assured the air they breathe in the church is safe.
