Mesothelioma Cancer News (Charleston, West Virginia) – Contractors removed asbestos from an elementary center on Monday. As reported by WVGazette.com, the work was one of several asbestos-abatement projects to be completed during the summer within Kanawha County schools.
As noted in the report, 85,000 square feet of space total will be the focus of the projects. Maintenance director of the county, Terry Hollandsworth, is quoted in the report as stating of the work, “It’s mostly floor tiles, and we do a little bit of ceiling work as well… And we’re removing the asbestos chalkboards while we’re there, too.” Hollandsworth also stated of the Bridgewater project,
“I can’t tell you exactly what we’re doing right now at Bridgeview,” however, it is said to be one of the smaller assignments. He further stated, “We hire contractors to come in and do the asbestos abatement, and they have to be licensed and certified… Asbestos abatement is heavily regulated.”
