Asbestos

Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and exposure to asbestos has been attributed to lung cancer. Cromwell Environmental assists property owners in meeting the requirements of all Federal, State and Local Asbestos regulations while reducing their potential liability and exposure. Our Asbestos related services include conducting surveys to determine the presence of Asbestos, compiling recommendations for potential solutions, and monitoring of abatement procedures. Our experience with asbestos includes helping countless homeowners, large facilities, schools, and hundreds of REO/foreclosed properties with proactively dealing with concerns.

Asbestos Survey

Cromwell Environmental inspects facilities to determine the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM). State certified Inspectors execute a full site investigation and perform required sampling. The inspection documentation consists of analysis, report generation, and recommendations. We offer assessment surveys that meet AHERA and NESHAPS requirements, as well as surveys to meet a client's specific needs.

Air and Abatement Contractor Work Practices Monitoring

Cromwell Environmental provides on-site monitoring of all aspects of an Asbestos abatement throughout the project. Monitoring of an Asbestos abatement project helps ensure contractor compliance with regulatory, health and safety, and contractual requirements.

Who Must Have Their Buildings Inspected for Asbestos?

If you own a building constructed prior to 1978, it may contain significant amounts of Asbestos. Commonly Asbestos is found in floor tile, duct wrap, ceiling tiles and popcorn-ceilings. Both OSHA and EPA regulations require owners to know the condition of Asbestos Containing Materials in their buildings to prevent exposure that may occur for occupants, tenants, or employees; such as during a renovation or demolition. Serious health and liability risks exist if Asbestos containing materials (ACM) are disturbed.

Lead-Based Paint

Lead was used in paint prior to 1978 as pigment or additive to help with the durability. Lead-Based Paint is most often seen on high impact surfaces such as door cases, window troughs, floors, and exterior surfaces of buildings and homes. Lead-Based Paint contamination and exposure affects small children most and can cause serious health concerns.

Inspections

Cromwell Environmental has conducted thousands of Lead-Based Paint (also called LBP or Lead Paint) Inspections and Risk Assessments. Our licensed and insured employees are experienced in using the latest X-Ray Florescence (XRF) devices to quickly identify lead paint hazards in buildings, documenting the condition and potential health hazards associated with lead-based paint contamination and providing our clients with comprehensive reports. Cromwell Environmental is an expert at handling major HUD-based lead inspection contracts and foreclosed properties. 

Clearance Testing

It is estimated that nearly 25% of exposure is due to improper techniques during clean-up efforts. After a lead-based paint abatement or stabilization, or as part of a Section (8) housing inspection, lead levels are analyzed from dust in and around the work area. This lead-based paint clearance testing is performed by Cromwell Environmental to determine if state applicable lead clearance standards have been reached or if additional work is necessary.

Project Monitoring

Cromwell Environmental offers lead abatement project supervision certified Lead-Based Paint Risk Assessors and Industrial Hygienists who monitor the lead abatement contractor’s activities to ensure compliance with OSHA regulations. Collection of clearance and TCLP samples are taken periodically as well as air samples to ensure that engineering controls and health and safety precautions are met.
