Specialty Remediation Services
All of our asbestos abatement technicians are fully trained and licensed to ensure your project is conducted safely and accurately. Well-versed in a variety of asbestos abatement techniques, TIER follows all regulatory guidelines for the proper removal and disposal of asbestos-contaminated building materials. While every situation is different, asbestos has been identified in many construction materials including insulation, flooring and ceiling tiles, window caulk, as well as roofing materials, and can pose serious harm to your company and your employees. Trust TIER to handle your asbestos abatement project in a professional and timely manner.
Elevated moisture levels inside buildings can spur the growth of mold—and if not remediated, the growth can expand to cover large surface areas. Mold spores carry the greenish-black mold, Stachybotrys chartarum, also known by its synonym Stachybotrys atra. Mold tends to flourish on materials with high cellulose and low nitrogen content, such as fiberboard, gypsum board, paper, dust, and lint. All molds, regardless of the particular type, pose similar health risks and should be treated and removed following similar protocol. TIER’s environmental technicians will apply disinfectant agents to remediate the mold and perform the job safely, following all local, state and federal regulations.
While the production of polychlorinated biphenyl, also know as PCBs, has been banned since 1979, their wide use prior to that time has resulted in the continuing need for remediation today. Whether your remediation project involves the cleanup of an entire site, or the removal of contaminated materials from your location, TIER uses a variety of chemical, physical or microbial treatment methodologies to remove the hazard. We comply with all TSCA (Toxic Substances and Control Act) guidelines for proper treatment, removal, transportation, and disposal.
Since electrical transformers manufactured prior to 1979 often contain Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for their insulation properties, the process of dismantling this type of equipment is carefully regulated. TIER follows all government guidelines to properly drain, flush and remove these contaminants, rendering them safe or operationally efficient for the next life cycle phase. For end-of-life units, we properly dispose of and recycle the transformer, while for early- and mid-life units, TIER can provide either vacuum fill or oil reclamation and retrofill services.
Accidents happen. And when they occur in manufacturing facilities or laboratories, they often involve a toxic chemical or fuel spill—which may pose a threat to your facility’s production, or the safety of your employees. TIER can respond quickly with a team of experts and plan of action to remediate the situation, minimize exposure, and return your operations to their full functionality. TIER has assigned teams for emergency response services; each includes a project manager, equipment operator, supervisor, environmental technicians and CDL driver.
