Asbestos & vermiculite abatement is a sophisticated process of safely removing, repairing, enclosing or encapsulating asbestos containing materials (ACM) that have been used as building products. Asbestos removal is the most common abatement technique, and is required under State and Federal regulations prior to demolition or when renovations or building maintenance will disturb known or suspect ACM. Vermiculite in building products, including loose fill insulation, must be treated as ACM in most instances.
A typical abatement project entails three phases; work area preparation, abatement operations and cleanup/disposal. Abatement activities involve the use of decontamination and engineering controls to ensure that asbestos fibers are not released outside the work area and that work area is suitable for reoccupancy once the project is complete.
Air sampling and project monitoring is often required during asbestos abatement. This is typically performed by an independent “third party” consultant or laboratory. This firm is often involved in the asbestos survey and project design, which are done prior to abatement to identify what and how abatement is to occur.
A visual inspection and air sampling is used to determine if the work is complete. Records on abatement activities must be kept by the owner.

Lead hazard control includes measures taken to control the release of lead dust and other contamination during building maintenance, renovation or abatement in housing built before 1978. Maintenance and renovation should be performed using lead safe work practices. Renovations activities are regulated under the Renovation, Repair & Painting (RRP) Rule which requires certification for those who direct work in “target housing”. Lead abatement includes those activities where the objective is to address an identified or presumed lead paint hazard, or in response to a child with an elevated blood level. EPA also requires abatement when soil lead levels exceed 5000 parts per million (ppm). HUD requires abatement when the value of a Federal housing subsidy exceeds $25,000 or for the removal of windows during HUD lead hazard control or lead demonstration grants.
Hazard control involves several basic procedures to control the spread of contamination and provide a clean area for reoccupancy. Work area preparation, engineering controls and specialized cleaning are all critical to ensuring that lead encapsulation, enclosure, removal and/or repair are effective and complete.
A third party consultant or laboratory is typically involved before hazard control, to conduct an inspection, risk assessment or paint testing, and after hazard control to complete clearance. epa requires that contractors notify that agency in advance of a project and that an abatement report is prepared at the conclusion of work and provided to the owner. Property owners must disclose those records to tenants or buyers of that property.

Mold mitigation includes both the identification and correction of the conditions that permit mold growth, as well as the steps to safely and effectively remove mold damaged materials. The remediation plan should include steps to permanently correct the water or moisture problem. The plan should cover the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). It also should include steps to carefully contain and remove moldy building materials in a manner that will prevent further contamination. Remediation plans may vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the job, and may require revision if circumstances change or new facts are discovered.

In New York State, the DEC enforces the U.S. EPA’s federal Hazardous Waste laws and regulations under the RCRA. The NYSDEC is also responsible for permits, compliance inspections, corrective action, ground water protection, hazardous waste annual reports, assessments and fees, financial assurance and NYS’s Manifest Program. The NYSDEC manages the permitting, inspection and compliance of hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs), as well as hazardous waste land disposal facility operating permits/post-closure permits.
