The QE commitment to the environment is to utilize specialized tools that reduce our footprint on the environment and provide quality results in our floor removal projects. When using Bead Blasting equipment to remove floor mastic; we eliminate the use of solvents their vapors and related wastes, thus reducing our environmental footprint and in behalf of our clients. Bead Blasting the flooring adhesives results on clean porous surfaces which are better for adhesion of the new flooring adhesives. This reduces future problems and costs with the repair of flooring. Bead Blasting technology ensure 100% removal of Asbestos and our clients won’t have to abate the same surfaces again, as it happens on certain floor surfaces which are too porous for solvent removal, or by other abatement methods. Our Bead Blasting equipment is permitted for asbestos removal by the South Coast Air Management District (SCAQMD). We encourage our clients to adopt these practices as part of their specifications and requirements on their projects do to the associated benefits.
