Industrial Asbestos Abatement Texas
ARC is the single source for scaffolding, asbestos abatement, mold remediation, and lead abatement for power plants, manufacturing facilities and industrial and petrochemical companies. We ensure minimal interruptions to ongoing operations. In 30+ years, we have logged more than 12,000,000 asbestos and scaffolding hours. Many of these projects required creative scaffolding solutions in environments that require adaptability.
ARC project managers are full-time members of our team, and we have safety personnel on-site. ARC General Manager Warren Brown heads up our industrial division. We have more than 240 trained craftsmen/women, and we are licensed in 42 states. No matter how small, large, or complex your project, ARC’s technicians are available to travel throughout the country and be ready to manage your project from start to finish.
An estimated two million employees in the construction and general industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job. The heaviest exposure occurs in the construction industry, particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition. ARC Abatement can assist in the proper removal of asbestos before a renovation or demolition project. With more than 30 years of experience, our team is fully licensed and accredited to perform any size asbestos abatement, from private establishments to large industrial and government facilities.
Lead is a naturally occurring metal and can be found in all parts of our environment, including air, water, and soil. Since it is an element, lead does not break down. When lead is released into the air, it may be transported long distances before it deposits onto the ground. Once deposited, lead often adheres to soil particles. The effects of lead are the same whether it enters the body through inhalation or ingestion. Lead can affect almost every organ and system in the body. The nervous system is the primary target for lead toxicity. Long-term exposure can result in decreased learning, memory, and attention and weakness in fingers, wrists, or ankles.
In our experience, we have found the three most common sources of lead poisoning are deteriorating lead-based paint, lead-contaminated dust, and lead-contaminated residential soil. ARC Abatement utilizes highly-trained professionals with years of experience in the proper removal, stabilization, and disposal of lead-contaminated materials, such as lead-based paint. Removing lead paint improperly can create a danger to all those exposed. Undisturbed lead paint that is in good condition usually is not a hazard. It is only when the paint becomes chipped or sanded into dust that it becomes a likely source of danger. ARC provides lead abatement services to customers prior to repairs, demolitions, or handling of lead-contaminated materials.
ARC has completed More than 440,000 hours expanding 1,200 projects cleaning mold-contaminated facilities.
Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. Estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three-hundred-thousand or more types of mold. Exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing or skin irritation, or more serious allergies. Severe reactions may occur among workers in occupational settings exposed to large amounts of molds. These reactions may include fever and shortness of breath. Some people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their lungs. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, both the EPA and CDC state that all molds have the potential to cause health issues.
ARC’s team of trained mold abatement technicians utilize proven methods to eradicate mold and help prevent the recurrence of the growth. Typical remediation can include the removal and packaging of mold-contaminated material, application of biocides, and sealing-off affected areas. Our services have been utilized by medical facilities, schools, apartments, and commercial buildings. ARC is highly respected for its ability to provide mold removal services while protecting the integrity of your facility.
