The Residential Asbestos Removal Process

Bluestone follows the regulations and guidelines of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Asbestos Removal in Homes

In general, Bluestone’s asbestos removal projects consist of the following steps:

  1. Prior to conducting any asbestos removal, Bluestone workers isolate the work area from all other areas of the home.
  2. A high efficiency particulate air (H.E.P.A.)-filtered negative air machine is used to create a negative air environment and to prevent asbestos fibers from escaping from the work area.
  3. Workers then put on protective suits and respirators and enter the work area.
  4. Using amended water (to minimize the airborne asbestos fiber levels), workers carefully remove the asbestos materials.
  5. Workers then remove all visible debris from the work area. All surfaces are HEPA-vacuumed and wet-wiped as a final clean.
  6. An encapsulant, which locks down any possible asbestos fibers remaining after final cleaning activities, is sprayed over surfaces in the work area.
  7. All waste in the work area is double-bagged, properly labeled and transported from the home.
  8. An independent environmental testing company conducts a final visual inspection work area. If the work area passes this visual inspection, the testing company conducts a clearance inspection and air testing.
