Managing Waste

Managing Waste- An Overview When materials outlive their usefulness, they get discarded. At your residence, they go into the trash (or recycling). Household wastes are exempt from regulation (If you've seen H.H.W. events, they are in place to capture these hazardous wastes even though they aren't regulated).

Industrial Ductwork Cleaning Services

It is hard to believe that dust, particulates, and other contaminants can find their way into the ductwork, but that is their purpose.   Mostly, we see light material contamination such as dust or light fibers, but we can also see  “thick” materials (resins, paints) that require more substantial approaches.  Airflow ductwork is primarily designed to remove airborne materials from working areas, eliminating potential product contamination.  Usually, [...]
