Demolition

From initial site inspection to final clean up, East Coast Environmental Services can fill all of demolition contracting needs. As your "one stop" demolition contractor, our staff can make your initial site inspection, perform an asbestos assessment, perform the required asbestos survey and remove any asbestos from the structure. When this is complete, East Coast Environmental Services is fully qualified to perform any type of demolition. Whether your needs are conventional demolition, partial demolition or interior demolition for building renovation, East Coast Environmental Services is the only choice.

Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos is often discovered when any material containing the substance is disturbed. This may happen during a renovation, remodeling job, demolition or after a natural disaster. Once the asbestos-containing material is disturbed, abatement is recommended, and in many cases required, to prevent any potential health threats to the building occupants. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), exposure to asbestos could potentially increase the risk of developing cancer of the lung or other organs. 

Our approach

We offer comprehensive asbestos abatement services ranging from initial investigation through removal and project completion.  

East coast environmental ServiCES will: 

• Write and submit a project proposal and budget.
• Coordinate and facilitate an initial asbestos survey and investigation.
• Retrieve samples and test.
• Finalize the work plan.
• Remove asbestos-containing materials using industry approved techniques.
• Track and compile asbestos waste manifests.
• Prepare and submit a close-out package including a final report detailing project activities and necessary documentation.

Mold Remediation

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy.

A qualified restoration company understands the science behind mold and mold growth. ECES has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business. Mold remediation focuses on getting mold levels back to normal, natural levels. Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same.

Lead Abatement

Lead abatement is an activity to reduce levels of lead, particularly in the home environment, generally to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards, in order to reduce or eliminate incidents of lead poisoning.

Lead abatement may be undertaken in response to orders by state or local government. It requires specialized techniques that local construction contractors typically do not have.  It includes activities such as lead-based paint inspections, risk assessments and lead-based paint removal.

In the United States, lead abatement activities are regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.  Individuals and firms that conduct lead-based paint activities, including abatement, must be certified. ECES is certified to handle all of your lead needs. 

Lead abatement is distinguished from Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) programs, which are typically performed at the option of the property owner for aesthetic or other reasons, or as an interim control to minimize lead hazards. RPP programs are not designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards.  

Silica Abatement

Silica is one of the most common naturally occurring elements on the planet. Silica, the mineral compound silicon dioxide (SiO2), is found in two forms -- crystalline or noncrystalline (also referred to as amorphous). Sand and quartz are common examples of crystalline silica. Many common construction materials contain silica including, for example, asphalt, brick, cement, concrete, drywall, grout, mortar, stone, sand, and tile. It only takes a very small amount of the very fine respirable silica dust to create a health hazard.  Recognizing that very small, respirable silica particles are hazardous, OSHA requires construction employers to keep worker exposures at or below a Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) of 50 µg/m3. Dust should always be cleaned by using wet methods, a HEPA vacuum or another method which effectively minimizes dust exposure. Dry sweeping or dry brushing is NOT allowed unless other methods are not feasible.  ECES can ensure all sites are safe for employees with the removal of silica dust using OSHA & EPA approved procedures. 

Land Clearing 

Land clearing and site preparation services are available to get properties ready for new construction, fresh landscaping, or even for sale. Our site demolition team will fully analyze the site to ensure a completely safe, fast, and environmentally friendly demolition.

Let us help you plan your project! Many projects - for residential or business purposes - need more than one type of service. We will help you decide how to best clear, prep, or beautify the land around the property. Examples of projects we have done in the past include:

  • Complete land clearing to prepare for construction
  • Removal of trees of acres of land
  • Excavator Service
  • Clean up remaining debris after demolition
  • Retention or detention ponds to properly handle runoff and excess storm water
