Abatement Removal in Charleston, WV


Once hailed as the "Miracle Fiber", asbestos has been used in a multitude of consumer products, industrial equipment, and building materials. In fact, asbestos remains in use to this day. Because of this, it is no wonder why a vast majority of buildings today contain asbestos in some form.

It is a well known fact that the improper removal of asbestos containing materials (ACM) can be much more dangerous than leaving it in place. Microscopic fibers, undetectable by the human eye, can remain suspended in air or recirculated through HVAC systems causing continuous exposure.

ASTAR has a proven record of quick response to asbestos control!

Lead-Based Paint

1978! This is the date you need to remember. Lead-based paint was used in most homes until 1960, and in some houses paint through 1977. Therefore, if the house that you are living in was built prior to 1978, it may contain lead-based paint. LEAD is highly toxic and exposure to it can be dangerous, especially for children who are six (6) years old or younger.

ASTAR can test and remove lead-based paint!

Molds are simple, microscopic organisms, found virtually everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Molds can be found on plants, foods, dry leaves, and other organic material. Mold spores are very tiny and lightweight, and this allows them to travel through the air. Mold growths can often be seen in the form of discoloration, ranging from white, orange, green, brown and black. When molds are present in large quantities, they can cause allergic symptoms similar to those caused by plant pollen.

Methamphetamine Labs

Methamphetamine labs are hazardous illicit labs producing more than just illegal drugs. These labs produce environmental catastrophes, including, but not limited to hazardous waste, gases and vapors that settle in and around the lab site. For every pound of methamphetamine produced, five (5) pounds of hazardous waste is produced.

Exposure to operating meth labs can cause death depending upon the method being used.
