It’s free with no obligation to hire
Introduction: At Axis Enviro, our teams have well over 90 years of exceptional combined service and experience in all phases of the abatement and remediation of hazardous materials and chemicals, as well as fire and flood damage. We continue to add to our line up of services, and keep abreast of modern techniques as the industry changes, along with doing our part to stay as 'green' as we possibly can. We take great pride in our health and safety record, our team members have annual physicals, and follow every federal and state requirement, for themselves and our clients. We keep strict annual training in place and recertify every year, staying an up to date with any and all changes in technologies and laws pertaining to the industry. Additionally, our company is owned and operated by a Disabled Veteran, and we attempt to hire as many other qualified Veterans as possible, who hold the same philosophy and standard of care for our customers as we do. And you also may find other disabled persons and newly discharged vets transitioning through our ranks as we give back to our community and help to train our youth. We hope you'll be as caring and supportive as we are committed to these causes! At Axis Enviro, our founders have personal unfortunate experiences with Asbestos in the 1980's, before the knowledge, tech, and protections were utilized by the military in the industry. So far, we've been lucky with our health. But it is our MISSION to ensure that nothing like that EVER happens again, to you, your family, your children, or anyone you care for! Not in your home, and not in any public facility we work on, whether a school building, or a college, or a restaurant, or a court house. Our job is not done until your project tests clean, and YOU know your property is SAFE! We stand by our work, we get it right, and we guarante the scope of work we preform. It might take a while, but we are protecting and saving people, helping to fix a prior mistake made by mankind and technology, and saving the Earth, one house at a time, one building at a time, or one smelter or leaded, or contaminated plot of land at a time!!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?If you have an asbestos project: There are over 3,000 different building materials containing any of 8 different forms of asbestos. This makes giving unit prices difficult without seeing the project first. Please call us for a no cost site inspection and cost proposal. If you have a lead paint project: Unless your facility is a childcare center or children under 12 years old present more than 8 hours per day, your project will fall under the EPA's "Renovation, Restoration, and Painting" (RRP) lead rules. Since 2014, all property owners and renovation contractors are required to inspect, control, and abate lead disturbed in the course of work. Please call us if you think you may need remediation or testing. If you suspect you have mold in your property: If you can visibly see mold growth on walls, floors, or fixtures, it is probably past your ability to clean with bleach (Which will work on minor growths; don't spend money you don't need to). If you see growth on wood/drywall, or can smell it without being able to identify a specific location, you may need to do some testing and analysis to determine how far the damage has spread. Mold prefers warmer, moist, dark environments. Flooding damage is the biggest single cause, but is not exclusive. Basement baths and storage areas are mold magnets. Keep them well ventilated and dry. Call us if you had a water leak, or think you have a mold problem you can't solve alone.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After getting a referral, one of our estimators will call the customer to get details of the project, an environmental survey (if one has already been done), and contact information. We will usually arrange a time for one of us to inspect the property, usually with the owner or their representative. We use the survey results to determine the scope of work needed, and get any other pertinent information from the owner, such as access, scheduling difficulties, other trades, etc. We then prepare a written proposal, which is usually emailed to the owner or whoever the owner designates to receive it. If the proposal is accepted, we will arrange and apply for project permits with the municipalities and the State. Asbestos permits take 10 business days to process; if your project is of sufficient quantity to require a permit, please plan this two week period into your renovation. Lead and mold responses can usually be much more rapid.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Asbestos requires "Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act" (AHERA) training for workers and supervisors on any regulated site. It also requires State testing and certification to ensure proficiency. It also requires an extensive annual physical, and medical surveillance for 30 years from the date of every activity in asbestos abatement. EPA RRP certification is required of the designated individual for lead abatement, which is usually the crew supervisor. Mold remediation does not have State or Federal requirements, but is recommended to follow IICRC (International Institute of Cleaning and Restoration Contractors) procedures. These are considered the most in depth and "state of the art" procedures for remediation of mold.
