A Challenging Attic Asbestos Insulation Removal in Norfolk, MA

In the quaint neighborhood of Norfolk, MA, a single-family residential home stood with a hidden challenge lurking within its attic. The problem? Approximately 550 square feet of presumed asbestos-contaminated vermiculite insulation. This project was not just about removing insulation but also restoring a household’s safety and peace of mind. With our expertise in dealing with hazardous materials, Banner Environmental Services was called upon to address this intricate issue.

Preparing for Insulation Removal

The project began with meticulous preparation, which is essential in ensuring the safety of both the occupants and the environment. The pathway from the attic to the exterior door was secured with static cling plastic floor covering, a testament to our attention to detail and commitment to leaving no trace behind. All openings from the attic to the living area were covered with poly and blue painter’s tape, ensuring that the potential spread of contaminants was effectively contained.

The attic’s access point heightened the challenge: a 2’x2’ cubby located inconveniently above the refrigerator. Despite this, the Banner team strategically placed the decontamination unit to ensure the client’s access to essential parts of the home, such as the bathroom and bedroom. This careful planning underscored our commitment to the client’s comfort and convenience, not just the task at hand.

The Asbestos and Vermiculite Challenge

Removing the contaminated insulation required the deployment of a negative-air HEPA-filtered workspace and a 3-stage decontamination unit, showcasing our utilization of state-of-the-art technology and adherence to the highest safety standards. The removal process was thorough, with critical barriers and floor covering removed last, and the areas under them HEPA vacuumed to ensure no trace of contamination remained.

Client Satisfaction and Relief

The crawl space was over the refrigerator and very difficult to access. They did a wonderful job. Everyone at Banner is so helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Thank you!”
