About Us - Our History
In 1984 I was researching various business opportunities for the purpose to form a new start-up company. At the time, and old high school friend was wholesaling asbestos abatement supplies and informed me that the existing abatement contractors were vying for the large contracts and not interested in small commercial and residential projects. When these contractors occasionally took on the small jobs, their mobilization and job management costs were extensive and the prices were very high. I felt that there was an opportunity for a smaller asbestos contractor to focus on the many small jobs in the Cleveland market area, and made a career decision.
I was trained and certified at the University of Cincinnati in 1985, and Residential Asbestos Removal was incorporated and licensed by the State of Ohio Department of Health that year.
The focus of Residential has been on the efficient abatement of asbestos in the home. Applying the high standards and regulations set by the EPA for larger commercial jobs to the removal and encapsulation of asbestos in the home, Residential is successful at making asbestos abatement safe and inexpensive for homeowners and their families. We are proud of our record and our continuing of the highest standards of work performance on every project.
