Every day, hazardous materials are transported in shipping containers, cruising down the highway, and sitting in our cabinets, workplaces, and schools. For the most part, these materials are kept in check, and they do not pose any real threats. Unfortunately, car accidents, fires, home and business accidents, and security breaches can all lend a hand to the release of hazardous materials–materials that cannot be cleaned up with the help of standard cleaning products and pose a threat to human and environmental health and safety. The hazmat cleanup professionals at Master Restoration are trained to safely clean and remove hazardous materials, to get homes, businesses, and public spaces back to normal as quickly and efficiently as possible.
What exactly is hazmat cleanup? Hazmat cleanup is defined as any cleaning endeavor that deals with materials rated as hazardous by the EPA. These materials pose risks to public health. Hazmat cleanup crews may be required when illicit drug labs are identified and exposed, when human or biological material is inadvertently released, when lead paint or asbestos is found in a business or residence or when transportation vessels are upended and hazardous materials spill out onto streets, freeways, and residences.
HAZMAT CLEANUP COMPANIES
Cleaning up hazardous materials requires specialized training and equipment, including personal protective equipment, appropriate disposal equipment, intensive solvents, and deodorizers. The hazmat cleanup process typically involves the following:
- Containment of the damage. One of the greatest risks associated with hazardous materials, from septic tank leaks to corrosive chemical spills, is that of growth and increasing exposure. Chemical spills, damaged septic systems, and explosions can all forcefully propel dangerous materials into the air and surrounding environment. Exposure to hazardous materials doesn’t always involve an accident though, it could be something as simple as finding lead paint or asbestos in a home or business. Either way, containment is the first step in safely cleaning up hazardous materials.
- Removal of the hazardous material itself. After the material in question is contained, hazmat cleanup professionals can begin the process of dissolving and collecting the hazardous material to be disposed of. This process requires considerable access to protective gear, waste disposal materials such as bags, boxes, and sealed containers, and a secure location from which to dispose of collected material.
- Proper disposal of all collected material. After containment and collection, hazardous materials are disposed of, according to EPA guidelines. Homeowners, business owners, and city officials are neither licensed nor qualified to complete this portion of the process, and all disposal efforts should be carried out by hazmat cleanup professionals.
The hazmat cleanup professionals at Master Restoration are trained and equipped to safely manage hazardous material cleanup, including appropriate disposal and disbursement practices. When hazardous materials escape, place your trust in professionals who can contain, clean, and discard hazards and restore spaces to their former glory.
