Disinfection Services and BioHazard Cleaning

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Cleaning

BELFOR offers cleaning services for buildings and facilities exposed to COVID-19 or Coronavirus, in addition to contamination caused by fires, water, storms, mold, hazmat accidents, crime scenes, and other infectious diseases.

Our surface decontamination services are safe and effective. We can use wiping methods or small, portable sprayers with a hospital-grade solution that can kill 99.99% of pathogens -- including bacteria, fungi and viruses -- and leave no harmful residue.

These services help:

  • Reduce the risk of infection or illness;
  • Reduce the risk of cross-contamination;
  • Reduce downtime in operations.

Our services also meet the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

Asbestos Removal Services

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was commonly used in construction and building materials, meaning there are many buildings that still contain asbestos today. If asbestos is disturbed and exposed, for example, following an incident such as flooding, fire, or natural disaster, harmful fibers are released, posing serious health risks.

Asbestos removal is carefully regulated, and any work involving the handling, removal, and disposal of asbestos-containing materials should be undertaken by a specialist and never attempted yourself. At BELFOR, our trained, qualified, and licensed technicians are experienced in asbestos testing, removal, and remediation. You can rest easy in the knowledge that all aspects of the asbestos removal service will be handled safely and efficiently.

Lead Removal Services

Lead paint disturbance in a building can cause toxic contamination. As with asbestos, you must hire an experienced professional for any lead removal work. Lead removal is a complicated process, so having a fully trained specialist who understands lead removal and abatement is vital to ensure safe and efficient service.

Our BELFOR Environmental managers oversee each project from start to finish, from testing to removal and remediation. Highly trained and experienced, our professionals are licensed to safely carry out lead removal and eliminate hazards from your building.

Hazardous Waste Removal

Hazardous waste removal and waste management have associated regulatory components and are important parts of any BELFOR Environmental project. We are knowledgeable about the complex transportation and disposal regulations that apply to any situation involving hazardous waste removal and hazardous waste materials.
