At Biggs & Narciso we are experts in lead remediation.

We can safely and efficiently remove lead hazards from buildings including lead paint or lead plumbing issues. We will retrofit plumbing to building code specifications and renovate to a finished condition ready for occupation – completely lead free. All contaminated materials will be disposed of properly presenting no further threat to the environment or human health.

Lead Disposal

Lead is a poison in any form. It is categorized as one of the "heavy metals" and, when disposed of, it must always be managed as a hazardous waste. Too often lead contaminated debris is left at the job site for the property owner to dispose of—which means it gets dumped in the trash.

The correct way to dispose of lead contaminated debris (paint debris, flakes, dust, plumbing scrap, etc.) is to carefully gather it into a tightly sealed container. Clean up should be done with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter) vacuum cleaner to ensure a thorough pickup is done without releasing more lead particulates into the air. Waste containers should be properly labeled as containing lead contaminated material and disposed of as hazardous waste.

Biggs & Narciso - asbestos removal

Biggs and Narciso understand the risks and the importance of proper procedures when working with asbestos removal and how to dispose of asbestos so that there are no continued risks. These materials are extremely resistant to acid and fire making them highly attractive for use in manufacturing building materials subject to extreme heat or acidic conditions.


Biggs & Narciso - mould removal

We will not only remove and repair the affected areas, but will also identify and fix the root cause of the problem to prevent any reoccurrence of mould. The presence of moisture is essential for moulds to grow and they are therefore usually found in damp, poorly ventilated areas. Simply limiting sources of moisture and condensation and improving ventilation can reduce the presence of mould spores.


Biggs & Narciso - demolition

Since the majority of our asbestos abatement projects required some type of demolition, it was logical step for Biggs and Narciso to offer demolition as part of our service package. The scope of our demolition work now ranges from selective demolition of a single room, to completely gutting a building to its bare structure allowing for reconstruction.
