Asbestos Removal reviews in Pleasantville
The crew arrived promptly and the foreman walked the job with me to make sure we were both on the same page. This ensured he understood our expectations and we understood the unavoidable damages relating to removing 6 faux beams in on of the ceilings.
The crew finished up on time, did a great job and left the property very clean. We asked our contractor about the dings in the walls and ceiling relating to the scraping and he confirmed it was all normal and the crew did an excellent job.
We were pleased with the company's customer service and quality of work.
I told him over the phone about the mold issue and how we needed to test for asbestos, and he was very accommodating on time and quoted about half as much as other testing vendors. He was extremely professional and got us everything in writing before and after the work was completed. He told us exactly what he was doing at each step, and was very knowledgeable about the laws and regulations and provided valuable information for us to think about. He really went above and beyond to make us happy, and even after he left he called back to ask if he could take one more sample just in case, so that if we needed it to be cleared, he could run it without needing to come back.
We were so happy with
We received a call early Monday morning saying that due to some unforeseen circumstances our project was being pushed back 2 days. Normally, this wouldn't have been a problem, but since we had scheduled several other contractors to come in directly after him, there really was no way that we couldn't get this project done in the allotted time or basically pushing back his work another 2 weeks.
Was impressed with the crew and with

We obtained 3 quotes, and aside from the the fact Synergy was the least expensive (other 2 were ~$1400 more), they also had decent reviews on on Angie's list and Yelp. A few months after the work was completed the owner of Izimarian Roofing & Sheet Metal (San
Synergy scheduled the job within 3 business days of contract signature, and were in and out in 1 day. Set-up involved taping sheets of plastic to the walls (covering about 2/3rds of the wall), setting up an industrial blower (vented through a window) to create a negative pressure in the work area, and setting up a series of 3 decontamination booths in front of the doorway. The workers then used 6’ iron spud bars to scrape the tile off of the concrete. The tiles came up relatively easily, and in about 40 minutes they had removed and double bagged the tile for disposal [note: if the tiles/mastic had been removed with a mechanical grinder - which admittedly would have left an ideal surface for adhering the ceramic tiles we had planned - the entire room would have had to have been sealed - a lower level of containment is allowed for hand removal of the tile since it creates less dust].
Although the black mastic can be encapsulated rather than removed, we opted to have it removed since we planned to put ceramic tile on top of the concrete floor. Removing the black mastic (which may contain
Synergy used Formula 409 to degrease the floor, which did an ok job. However, were still shiny spots that I worried might contain some of the Sentinel 909. Consequently, after Synergy left I mopped a solution of SuperClean (a degreasing solution I bought at the local hardware store) augmented with some additional TSP on the concrete, let it sit for a few minutes, and sucked it up with a 24” floor scrubber/vaccum I rented from AAA Rentals in Redwood City ($60/day). I did this degreasing procedure twice, followed by about 4 clean water rinses. It seemed to work, although there were still a few shiny spots that I scuffed up with an angle grinder. [Degreasing agents for the soy-based removers are typically high pH (alkaline) solutions. Typical ingredients are sodium metasilicate, sodium hydroxide, and/or TSP (trisodium phosphate)]. The ceramic tiles are adhering well to the floor, so the degreasing seems to have worked.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
