The First Step in Remediation at Tri Span Environmental | Orange County Contractor

Tri Span Environmental is a leader among Southern California building remediation businesses. As experts in the field, Tri Span Environmental specialists know removal of hazardous materials from a building starts with complete containment of the toxic materials within the worksite area.

The Dangers of Contaminants

Containment of dust and debris is the first step in the complex process of removing asbestos, lead paint, mold, and fire-damaged components from a building. Protecting people from air-borne hazards and dust contamination during a remediation project is the highest priority for Tri Span Environmental on every job. In many situations, containment of dust and debris from the remediation area can be done while normal use goes on in other parts of the building.

Hazardous materials containment methods used by Tri Span Environmental in Los Angeles and Orange counties include setting up polyethylene barriers around the remediation site, closing vents and other openings with plastic sheeting and duct tape, and using HEPA filters and negative air pressure equipment for preventing dust infiltration into adjacent areas. Workers wear protective suits, gloves, and masks as needed and take steps to prevent hazardous dust and debris from entering living areas on shoes and when transporting debris off site for disposal.

Remediation & Cleanup Services

Inside the containment area on a remediation project, air filters and pumps keep fresh air moving in and hazardous dusts fibers from moving out. Once the remediation site is contained within a protective barrier, specialized vacuum cleaners designed for use with hazardous fibers and dust are used by Tri Span Environmental as part of the decontamination step.

Containment of hazardous materials is the foundation step in removal of asbestos, lead paint, and mold from any building. If not done correctly, dust and particles from the contaminated building materials can cause continuing problems and toxic exposure in the reconstructed building. Installing the proper hazardous material containment system is the first step on every Tri Span Environmental remediation project.
