Asbestos Maintenance

There are a few ways we perform asbestos maintenance:

Removal or repair of damaged or deteriorated HVAC duct work tape/wrap and boiler pipe insulation:
These items are typically left in place and repaired with an EPA approved WetLag® and seal with an EPA approved encapsulate.
Why don’t you remove them?
Abatement (complete removal) of these materials can be costly and may create a condition that causes the asbestos fibers to become airborne, potentially contaminating the entire home (if not completed by a professional), therefore leaving them in place and reducing any human contact exposure is an acceptable work practice.
When is asbestos exposure dangerous?
Asbestos exposure to these materials can be dangerous when disturbing the material. The material is soft and can be pulverized to a powder by hand pressure (this is considered a FRIABLE asbestos material).
Removal of flooring and mastic:
The most common floor tile that typically contains asbestos is 9”x9” and 10”x10”, however, it is encouraged to always assume the material does contain asbestos, regardless of the size or age of the floor tile, or test the material to prove the absence of asbestos in the material.
The black mastic (glue adhesive)also may contain asbestos.
When does asbestos in flooring and tile become a hazard?
Asbestos exposure from these types of material is low (very minimal) the material cannot be pulverized to powder by hand pressure (this is a NONFRAIBLE asbestos material).
The asbestos fibers are within the matrix of the tile itself and can only become airborne (causing an inhalation hazard) by grinding the material into a powder, this is done by drilling, grinding, power cutting through, or burning the material for some reason and is not recommended without proper training and equipment.

​Sheet flooring (vinyl/linoleum) may also contain asbestos as well. The asbestos can either be in the vinyl/linoleum or in the backing. Most commonly, the paper backing of the older types of flooring has been found to contain asbestos.

Asbestos Survey

Asbestos surveys are required by the State of Ohio or the Federal Government to assure the safety of the public. There are many rules for both residential and commercial buildings that must be followed.

An asbestos survey consists of collecting samples of building materials for laboratory analysis to determine the presence of asbestos above threshold values. Although residential homes focus on construction prior to 1978, for commercial buildings the age of construction does not exempt the requirement of an asbestos survey prior to remodeling or demolition.

Farsight Management has completed hundreds of asbestos surveys for builders, property management companies, private homeowners, commercial building owners, and municipalities. We also provide third-party oversight of asbestos abatement activities by a contractor to assure they comply with OSHA regulations.

Removal of Non-Regulated Asbestos Containing Materials

Building materials sometimes contain asbestos that is not regulated by the State of Ohio.  This is when the material is not considered friable either in place or when it is removed.

Farsight Management can remove non-regulated asbestos containing materials such as floor tile. Our clients include homeowners, schools, hospitals, and other commercial facilities.

We were very pleased with the work by Farsight Management. They came in and review our concerns, gave us an estimate before work began, and kept us appraised of any updates or changes. The work was completed in one day to our satisfaction. We highly recommend Farsight.
William w.
Farsight did an exceptional job in cleaning up the black mold in our home that had apparently been in our house for years. We were only in our home for 3 years when it was discovered.  They were quick to respond, quote and clean up. Best company I have ever dealt with!
John w.
We had the unlucky surprise of mold when we tried to sell our house. Being weeks from closing and having already gone under contract, Farsight saved our sale by being super fast and affordable in remediating the problem. If you need a company that is responsive, quick, and reasonably priced… call Farsight!
