Fort Myers, FL, December 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- American Management Resources Corporation (AMRC), a premier environmental and engineering consulting firm headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida, has received the Florida state license to perform asbestos abatements.
AMRC has been performing asbestos testing and consulting since 1991, and according to Jack Snider, President of AMRC, the addition of abatement services is a logical progression of the company’s offerings. Mr. Snider stated, “AMRC has been helping clients manage asbestos for over twenty years and we are increasingly called upon by the commercial, industrial and residential sectors to help manage their asbestos, reduce their liability and help protect their workforce. The addition of this service stems from client demands for turnkey abatement from a company they have come to trust.”
Asbestos is a highly regulated and dangerous material. It is a naturally occurring mineral fiber, often added to building products to improve the strength, thermal insulation and fire resistance. Improper asbestos clean-up can disturb asbestos fibers, increasing the risk of lung diseases, including, mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. According to Snider, “Many people think asbestos was banned in the 1970’s but asbestos continues to be put in building materials today. The only way to know if something has asbestos is to test, and once discovered, it must be properly managed or abated.”
AMRC’s staff holds all Florida state licenses for asbestos testing and abatement and has performed thousands of asbestos projects. AMRC's full range of environmental services includes engineering, site assessment and remediation, health and safety consulting, indoor air quality testing, mold/microbial consulting and testing, lead-based paint testing and abatement, soil and groundwater remediation, Phase I environmental site assessments, materials testing, gun range remediation, storage tank management, volatile organic compound testing, and many other specialty project types. Customers typically include architectural and engineering firms, commercial and industrial clients, government agencies, real estate developers, property management firms, resorts, educational institutions, health care facilities, and others.
