Asbestos Professionals

For the safety of your business or home—and your health—it’s imperative to hire a professional for asbestos removal. That’s why in addition to asbestos testing, we also offer asbestos abatement.  

Our asbestos abatement contractors are licensed professionals that have the high-quality training necessary to properly handle, remove and transport asbestos in a safe and timely manner. At Alpha Environmental, we go above and beyond to remove asbestos in the safest way possible, following strict asbestos abatement standards set forth for the states of Oregon and Washington by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

Since safe asbestos abatement can be a time-consuming and expensive process that requires special equipment, pricing for Alpha Environmental asbestos removal and abatement services vary.

Is There Asbestos in My Home or Business?

Many people don’t know that It wasn’t until 1989 that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule in an effort to effectively ban most asbestos-containing products. Prior to the ban, asbestos was among the most common construction materials both in residential and commercial buildings. According to OSHA, materials assumed to contain asbestos if installed prior to 1981 include (but are not limited to) the following: thermal system installation; roofing and siding shingles; vinyl floor tiles; plaster, cement, putties and caulk; ceiling tiles and spray-on coatings; industrial pipe wrapping; heat-resistant textiles; automobile brake linings and clutch pads.

Although it’s now illegal to use or manufacture materials containing asbestos, many people still live in homes that were built with materials containing toxic asbestos fibers. According to OSHA, once asbestos fibers become released into the air, they can easily become inhaled without knowing and get trapped in the lungs and, if swallowed, lodged into the digestive tract. Asbestos is known for causing chronic lung disease, lung cancer, and other cancers. Cancer or other symptoms may take years to develop after asbestos exposure.

If you own or work in an older building, or own/live in an older home or complex—especially one built prior to 2004—the only way to truly know if you are at risk for asbestos exposure is through testing.
