We’re certified for asbestos and lead abatement in multiple states, and we always self-perform our own work.
Whether you need help remediating an existing residential or commercial building, or tearing it down and starting over, we’ll help you do it safely. We can also conduct an asbestos survey that maps out exactly where hazardous material is located throughout your property.
We’ve handled asbestos abatement projects of all sizes throughout the Southeast, and we offer exceptionally competitive pricing, given the quality of our work.
Whether you need a quote for a specific project, just a resource for asbestos questions, contact our division manager Gerrad Hicks.
Asbestos Exposure in Residential and Commercial Buildings
Asbestos, lead and mold are three of the most common environmental hazards found inside both residential and commercial buildings. Asbestos can cause diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, while lead can cause poisoning and brain damage — especially in children. Mold can cause serious reactions and respiratory illness.
We’re certified lead abatement professionals.
What’s more, we’re certified in several states. Our knowledgeable professionals can safely and efficiently remove lead paint, without damaging often-intricate surfaces beneath. We can also sample your paint to determine whether or not it contains lead, and offer you the best and most economical options for your project.
We also offer dry ice blasting, a nonabrasive, mess-free option for removing lead paint.
For more information on our lead abatement services, contact Corey Bingham at (205) 595-8188 ext. 812, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lead Exposure in Older Homes and Buildings
Lead is one of the most common environmental threats found inside residential and commercial buildings built before the 1970’s.
Exposure to lead can delay physical and mental development, and can cause attention span and learning deficits in small children and babies. It can increase blood pressure in adults, and repeated exposure can cause kidney problems. Properly maintaining paint in older homes, and preventing chipping or peeling, is critically important in preventing lead dust.
One Stop regularly performs mold inspections and removal in commercial structures. We follow strict, safe protocols in identifying, containing, remediating and removing mold.
Swift action is essential in containing or preventing mold exposure.
Mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours, which is why rapid reaction is crucial. Our crew has extensive experience in mold remediation, both in commercial and residential properties.
What is Mold?
Mold is a fungus that thrives in moist, humid conditions indoors and outdoors. It can release airborne spores and mytoxins, causing severe headaches, allergies, asthma, rashes and other health problems. It flourishes on many types of building materials, and can grow in hidden surfaces like the back of drywall, wallpaper, or paneling, ceiling tiles, under carpets and pads and other areas.
Noticeable signs of mold include musty odors and discoloration, and it’s important to keep mold levels on the inside of a structure lower than outside levels.

One Stop's dry ice blasting service is a safe, efficient, cost-effective and green method of cleaning or preparing surfaces. It requires less prep time and downtime, and produces no secondary waste, compared to traditional methods.
It evaporates completely, leaving only the material you want removed in the first place. Moreover, dry ice cleaning replaces hazardous chemical cleaners — which also eliminates the disposal cost of those chemicals.
How It Works
We use compressed air to discharge high-velocity frozen CO2 pellets, creating tiny explosions on surfaces — lifting undesirable materials off underlying substrates. Unlike hard, abrasive blasting media that grinds on surfaces — like sand, plastic beads and soda — our food-grade* dry ice is soft.
Dry Ice Blasting to Remove Lead Paint & Mold
Dry ice blasting removes lead paint or mold with the same environmental protections in place. It can drastically reduce labor hours when removing paint from intricate designs. There are no chemicals to stain or discolor the wood, no gouges, or raising of the grain. And it can remove paint from wood, brick, stone or metal without having to stop and change processes.
Other Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting:
- Safe on electrical components
- Minimal secondary cleanup
- Environmentally friendly (no contaminants such as solvents or grit media)
- Clean and approved for use in the food industry
- Allows most items to be cleaned in place without time-consuming disassembly
- Great for removing mold from substrates such as wood
- Minimizes the damage scraping causes plaster
- Can be used for many general cleaning applications
- Can be used with a wide range of application force to substrates
—Gentle enough for dusting smoke damage from books
—Strong enough to remove weld slag from tooling
