Our trained, professional team of technicians is licensed, insured, and ready to handle any or all of the following environmental projects:
Asbestos testing & sampling: From vinyl floor tiles, to plumbing, wall and attic insulation, and even certain exterior sidings and shingles…more than 500 products contain asbestos, and it’s safe to assume that any structure built prior to 1980 will require asbestos abatement. If there are any doubts or questions, our technicians can safely obtain a sample and send it to a certified lab for asbestos testing, for results in as little as two days.
If you are planning demolition or renovation and suspect the presence of asbestos, it’s time to call in professional help. Slight disturbances in the asbestos material and surrounding areas can create hazards where none existed if not handled properly. The Banner Environmental Services’ team is trained and equipped for safe, thorough asbestos remediation.
Asbestos Abatement: Asbestos has been widely used in many building products because of its tensile strength and chemical and thermal resistance. Unfortunately, asbestos is carcinogen that causes lung cancer and mesothelioma. This makes it extremely hazardous to workers handling it, and if it is handled improperly and gets into the air, it can be hazardous to the population. Due to the hazard, strict regulations and procedures have been enacted to prevent asbestos exposure. That is why asbestos abatement is not a DIY project and professional remediation services are needed.
Asbestos survey: Prior to renovation or demolition, most towns require an asbestos survey to certify the building is asbestos free, in order to prevent asbestos fibers from accidentally being released into the environment. We will respond quickly with a thorough survey, and provide the necessary paperwork so your project can begin.
Black/gray water cleanup: Building floods can occur for many reasons – rainwater leaks, burst plumbing pipes, sewage backups or ground water intrusions from storms or hurricanes. Black and gray water flooding are considered hazardous and should be treated as though the water contains infectious material. The Banner Environmental Services team will remove and dispose of standing water and damaged porous materials, dry affected areas, then clean and sanitize building contents, structural support systems and HVAC systems. Once completed, we will retest to certify the building is safe to be re-occupied.
Complete Demolition: Demolishing a complete building is a messy job and can be dangerous when not handled properly. Let Banner Environmental Services handle your complete demolition project; our Services team has over 25 years of experience and can handle almost any surprise.
Select or Interior demolition: Most renovation projects begin with demolition, and what lies hidden behind the walls or below is a mystery. Banner Environmental Services can handle select or interior demolition for you, so that if an environmental issue emerges, we are ready and able to address it immediately.
Mold remediation: We will clean and remove mold from areas where significant growth has occurred; this includes mold and mildew caused by sewage or contaminated water that require specialized protective equipment and cleaners. We can also determine the source of moisture causing the mold and any structural damage that may have resulted from its overgrowth.
Vermiculite: This fire-resistant mineral was used in wall and attic insulation up through 1990. Unfortunately, the majority of the deposits were also contaminated with asbestos. Our team of licensed professional technicians will remove hazardous vermiculite insulation from your home, commercial property, or institution.
The Banner Environmental Services team is assembled of certified and trained professional technicians whom are fully licensed in Massachusetts. We take pride in our responsiveness and ensure compliance with OSHA and EPA best practices.
