Asbestos Abatement and Testing

Air, Land and Water Engineering has been performing asbestos abatement projects since 1989. Our staff has completed all phases of asbestos projects including surveys, inspections, operations and maintenance programs, abatement design, removal and monitoring. We perform asbestos services in Maryland, DC, Virginia, and Delaware. We can mobilize quickly and have responded to hundreds of flood insurance claim projects in the Mid-Atlantic area.

Building owners who need asbestos inspections done rely on ALWE to check materials for asbestos content prior to renovations or purchasing a building or home. We collect asbestos samples using licensed asbestos inspectors in accordance with EPA protocols. We can get rush analysis done quickly if time is of the essence. By using inspectors who are also lead paint inspectors or lead paint risk assessors we can combine a lead paint and asbestos inspection to save you time and money.

Asbestos removal projects are performed using High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered negative air machines, HEPA filter vacuums, wet techniques, and thick 6-mil plastic sheeting to build containments to keep the asbestos fibers within the work area. OSHA regulations and EPA regulations are strictly followed to protect the occupants from exposure to asbestos fibers.
