Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos abatement is a highly regulated and specialized process. There are many facets to the handling of asbestos that present when dealing with asbestos abatement. This becomes even more complicated when asbestos and asbestos containing materials are exposed or disturbed as a result of mishap or disaster.

At ServiceMaster of Truro, our technicians are qualified and fully trained asbestos abatement professionals.

Our services include assessments, surveying, air sampling and reporting on asbestos containing materials, including vermiculite. Our technicians will assess the risk, select the most appropriate method of managing the problem, and perform the abatement operation.

Our technicians will use a variety of techniques to complete your inspection and analysis. These techniques could include:

Air Sampling – this will indicate if you have an asbestos problem and determine its severity.

Materials Sampling – we will determine the source of the airborne asbestos and confirm it with independent laboratory analysis if required.

Assessment of Asbestos – sometimes removal isn’t your best option depending on the condition of the asbestos.

Services


Most products made today do not contain asbestos. Those few products made which still contain asbestos that could be inhaled are required to be labeled as such. However, until the 1970s, many types of building products and insulation materials contained asbestos.

Where You Might Find Asbestos at Home or Work

  • Hot water pipe insulation
  • Roofing and siding shingles
  • Wall and attic insulation
  • Textured paint, patching and joint compounds
  • Asbestos paper, millboard or cement sheets used around stoves and fireplaces
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Door gaskets in furnaces

Michael White

We very much liked the Company's services. What we noticed first thing was how polite that the representatives were. Every representative introduced themselves at the door and offered to shake hands, which were very nice touches that set the company apart. The Company should continue to do this. We also liked that Servicemaster is very efficient -representatives explained things clearly, did what they said that they would do, and did it when that they said they would do it. Very impressive. Couldn't ask for more.

Gerald/Sandy Harper

This only applies to the clean-up crew...they were courteous, informative and very efficient! We were very pleased. However, they said they were coming back to try and clean the scorched stucco...we haven't heard back from them.


Rolly Renaud

100% improvement on what we had before.


G.A.

Did the job as promised, in time promised. Prompt replies to emails and phone calls. However, our realtor had to "ask" that charges be removed for supplies/services in the estimate but not required for job. This saved us over $500. I'm concerned that we had to ask for something that should have happened automatically. If the charges had not been removed, she would never use ServiceMaster again, and word travels fast. One's reputation takes time to build but can be lost in a heartbeat. If it was an oversight, it was sloppy; if it was not, then count me lucky. You probably don't want to post this review in its entirety, so I won't check the box below, but you don't have my permission to display it publically unless it is unedited. And that's OK because the message was for ServiceMaster: be one of the good guys.


Bruce Theal

B.C.

Workmanship is excellent - high quality with not even a mess after a day's work - so professional. Jeff's work makes one feel relaxed and confident having a stranger alone in my home doing repairs. In aaddition, I was utterly impressed by the visit by the two Service Master gentlemen to confirm the hidden damage to the carpeting on moving off the furniture from the bedroom. Jeff handled this in such a touching manner; he made me feel well taken care of and established customer trust in him, his work and ServiceMaster. I am very pleased with choosing the Service Master to do the repairs. Thanks.


C.G.

Adequately prompt cleaning up the basement.
