In preparation for a sump pump drainage system installation, we needed to remove all of the asbestos tile and mastic in our basement. Originally they quoted to only remove a minimal amount of mastic, to do the sump pump installation. But once they arrived and saw the space, agreed it would not be a big deal to remove all of the mastic. They did this for no additional cost. They worked quickly and left our space very clean. Not a glamourous process but they did what we needed them to do without any issues! Thats all we could ask for!

Very Professional, quick, and thorough. The turn around time from the time we requested a quote to job done was less than a week. When done the job site was immaculate. If we need this service again for other structures we need to demo, we will be back!

We worked with DJ who provided the quote and answered our many, many questions promptly and professionally. He was always available and helpful.
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 wish all our service vendors were more like
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
. Professional, punctual, communicative, and an overall great value.
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
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
and with our first experience using Angie's List to find him.

was extremely easy to work with from the moment I contacted him until completion of the work. He responded very quickly to my request for a quote and made all of the required permit arrangements promptly. He and his team did a very professional job and left the work area in very clean and orderly shape at the end of the work. His price was in line with other quotes. Overall a very good experience.

was very friendly throughout this process. When I first spoke to him to schedule an estimate he took the time to tell me about the process and what all was entailed. When he was running late, he called me to let me know so we could reschedule another time. Was able to show up even earlier than that, so all worked out. He came out on
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
1 and I had my estimate on
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
2, so a pretty quick turnaround compared to other contractors. His estimate was very reasonable and his timing (including the 10 day permit period) worked with our short time frame, so we went ahead and scheduled for a start date of
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
14.
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.

gave me a ring back and told me that he would get some guys to come later in the day to at least set up and then get all his guys in the next day to finish. He did as promised. They did have to come in on Wednesday morning, but had everything cleaned up and were out by 9:30am.
Was impressed with the crew and with
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
's willingness to push through and get things done. I would not hesitate to recommend them. This is not a job where things are left better than when they arrived, but they did what they were hired to do and were responsive and friendly to boot.

It went very smoothly from start to finish. The gentleman arrived at the time promised, was very professional and let me know every step of the project. He finished in about two hours, contacted the air quality control company and the project was finished in about 3 hours. I would definitely recommend Bluestone to any one who needs this kind of work done. Also my contact at Bluestone,

After removing the carpet in our downstairs area we were confronted with a single
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
of 9" x 9" green vinyl or linoleum tiles covering the concrete slab in our basement area. Based on some research, it seemed likely these tiles and the black mastic adhesive contain some low levels of asbestos. While it’s possible to remove the tiles by hand (lots of websites and YouTube videos on this), given the large area it was safer, easier and faster to have an asbestos abatement company do it. There are a number of accredited test labs in the East Bay that will accept tile samples from homeowners to determine asbestos content (seems to run about $50-60), but rather than testing the tile we just assumed it contained some level of asbestos since the size, pattern and age were consistent with asbestos-containing tiles.

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
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
) told me (unsolicited) that Synergy is probably the best in the area – it’s the one he refers his customers to.
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
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
amounts of asbestos) from the concrete was done with a soybean-based (rather than solvent based) chemical from Sentinel Products (Formula 909 - http://www.senpro.com/pages/VinylTile), followed by degreasing with Clorox Formula 409 (yes, the product you have in your kitchen). Formula 909 solubilizes the mastic and creates a black, sticky goo that Synergy then squeegeed into a pool, and soaked up with an absorbent material. The black goo is messy, but Synergy did a great job making sure that the residual goo was cleaned up - there were only traces in some cracks and along the perimeter of the rooms (baseboard will cover this) where the floor meets the wall sill plate.

-E-Doo from Franmar Chemicals is a similar soybean-based
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
designed for removing black mastic (http://www.franmar.com). After the goo has beep sopped up, the area had to be degreased otherwise the thinset we needed for the ceramic tiles won’t adhere to the concrete (both the Sentinel and Franmar make a degreasing agent for their products). While we were finalizing the Scope of Work in the contract I had asked Synergy for the MSDS / Technical Data Sheet on Formula 909, which they emailed to me.
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.

vacuumed the area when they were finished (they left the area very clean), took an air sample, and phoned the next day to tell us the air sampling came back negative (no traces of asbestos in the air). They of course removed the old tile and absorbed mastic/Sentinel 909, and disposed of this material per CA requirements (we got a receipt back from the asbestos dump in
Port Angeles Asbestos Disposal Provider Name Locked
confirming the disposal). Overall, I felt Synergy provided professional service, and were a pleasure to work with.

Top notch service. They took 30% off the initial estimate because they accomplished a two-day job in one day! I can't be happier with how it turned out. The technicians went above and beyond by cleaning the grout and re-caulking along the tile lines. They even cleaned the bath tub!
