Our member contractors also are experienced, certified and licensed in asbestos abatement and lead abatement, allowing our contractors to provide a comprehensive range of mitigation services that enable government, commercial, industrial and residential facilities owners to meet regulatory obligations in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Meeting the Standards

We also guarantee that members plan, develop and monitor all abatement projects based on federal, state and local requirements, making sure all materials and equipment used by our contractors adhere to Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards.

The Importance of Infectious Disease Control

The main purpose of infectious disease control is to inhibit the spread of disease through proper containment. 

Containment is an intricate process that requires the careful filling of any holes, penetrations, gaps, or spaces that could be a potential path for the spread of disease or other airborne contaminants. 

Infectious disease control systems are part of the very structure of the buildings in which they are used. After they are installed, infectious disease control materials are always present in the building and do not rely on any type of mechanical device to properly perform their function.
