OVERHEAD INDUSTRIAL CLEANING

Combustible dusts are fine particles that present an explosion hazard when suspended in air under certain conditions. A dust explosion can cause catastrophic loss of life, injuries, and destruction of buildings. The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) identified 281 combustible dust incidents between 1980 and 2005 that led to the deaths of 119 workers, injured 718, and extensively damaged numerous industrial facilities.

CONFINED SPACE CLEANING

Many workplaces contain areas that are considered "confined spaces" because while they are not necessarily designed for people, they are large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. A confined space also has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc.

RESIDENTIAL/COMMERCIAL DUCT CLEANING

Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners and facility managers have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out. The same principle applies to commercial and industrial facilities, but on a much larger scale.

DRY ICE BLASTING

Dry-ice blasting involves propelling pellets at extremely high speeds. The actual dry-ice pellets are quite soft, and much less dense than other media used in blasting-cleaning (i.e. sand or plastic pellets). Upon impact, the pellet sublimates almost immediately, transferring minimal kinetic energy to the surface on impact and producing minimal abrasion.

INDUSTRIAL PAINTING

In heavy manufacturing environments, surface preparation can present major challenges. Our technicians can prep even the dirtiest surfaces to remove material buildup. Fresh paint can be used to increase visibility of safety lines, rails, and steps. These areas are a vital part of the safety program of any manufacturing plant.

CONFINED SPACE RESCUE TEAMS

Any time a facility sends workers into a permit-required confined space, OSHA requires that adequate planning and resources be allocated to any potential rescue needs. Simply planning to call local emergency services or fire departments does not satisfy OSHA requirements.
