Until it was banned in the early 1970s, asbestos was widely used for insulation on pipes, heating systems, floor tiles, linoleum, and shingles and vermiculite attic insulation. It was also used as an ingredient in window caulking, glazing, wall compounds, and roofing felts. Many buildings contain asbestos in one of its forms.
Any owner whose property contains asbestos should arrange a free estimate to find out if there is exposure to a potential health hazard or liability issue. This can be done by calling GCA Environmental, which has provided safe, cost-effective asbestos removal and other environmental services to Nevada property owners since 2007.
All work is performed by our own full-time employees, who are certified in the latest state-of-the-art removal methods. We are licensed, insured, and bonded, and all work is guaranteed to meet or exceed the strictest EPA and OSHA regulations.
Mold Removal involves several steps and exact protocol depends on many things: what type is involved, where it is and how extensive the contamination is. The usual steps are to identify the source, contain it, combine treatment with removal of damaged walls, ceilings and sometimes flooring. We often discard items that cannot be salvaged.
Over the last several years, mold has been discovered to be a leading cause of many illnesses previously attributed to other causes. While mold has always existed—and always will exist—it is definitely a hot-button topic now.
With homes and buildings being built tighter and more energy efficient, they may also be lacking the proper ventilation to prohibit mold growth. In order to grow, mold needs a water source as well as elevated levels of humidity and a food source. This can be found in water-damaged carpeting, Sheetrock™, insulation, and ceilings.
Lead Based Paint Removal
GCA Environmental is certified by the US – EPA as a Lead Abatement Contractor. Our past projects have included: Commercial Buildings, Schools, Hospitals, Industrial Facilities, Gun Range Facilities. We have performed sand blasting, soda blasting, and mechanical stripping from steel structures and wood. In addition to removing lead-based paint in place we have performed component removal as well.
What is Lead-Based Paint
Lead is a naturally occurring element found in small amounts in the earth’s crust. While it has some beneficial uses, it can be toxic to humans and animals causing negative health effects.
Water Damage / Flood
This always carries a high risk of contamination. Formation can begin in as little as 24 hours but usually takes a few days. Prompt water removal is critical. Call BUTLER RESTORATION at 702.533.0099 now if you’ve had a ruptured pipe.
How We Work
First we examine the extent of the contamination. Because so much of it might be hidden behind walls, floors and ceilings, this is definitely a time-consuming job. Sometimes it is very difficult to determine where it is growing. We will always find it!
Our trained technicians analyze the extent of the contamination. We will take the proper steps to ensure through mold remediation via state-of-the-art methods.
