Asbestos Abatement Phoenix December 6, 2018
What a day, I just got done with all my work and now my husband is taking me out for Mexican food at Habanero’s Mexican Grill over in Scottsdale. Their food is awesome and since I’m getting ready to go on a short business trip, this makes total sense. There won’t be any dishes left in the kitchen this way. Little did I know that I was about to get a major education on asbestos abatement.
So we arrive at Sky Harbor Airport here in Phoenix and I’m right on time to catch my Southwest flight. I grabbed some water and a coffee before boarding the plane for the short flight. As I sat down next to the gentleman sitting by the window, I noticed he was reading a book about hazardous waste removal. Of course I got comfortable and then when I had the opportunity I was able to ask him what he was reading about. He was very nice and explained that he works in the asbestos abatement industry and was doing some current research. I felt really silly now. I had no idea what asbestos was let alone asbestos abatement.
I’m sure that the look on my face was priceless and felt like he knew he needed to explain to me what asbestos abatement actually was. The guy was awesome and asked me if I knew what asbestos abatement was. I looked at him with glazed donut eyes and said that I had never heard those words. Of course, he was having a great laugh at my expense. I didn’t care as I was laughing too. He then when into extreme detail all about asbestos, what it was, where it came from and where it would most likely be found. By the end of that conversation and one vodka soda, I now am an asbestos abatement expert.
Feeling so filled with questions I quickly asked him how the heck he ended up in the asbestos abatement industry. I was thinking in the back of my head that this must have been something that his family did or something to that nature. I was totally blown away when he told me the reason that he got into the asbestos abatement business. I totally believe that life takes the turns that it is supposed to go in and this is just one more example of that.
He went on to explain to me that he was just an undergraduate student at Arizona State University here in Phoenix with a dream of getting into medical school and becoming a doctor at some point. He told me that he came from a family of cardiologist doctors and wanted to follow in their footsteps. He then pointed out to me that you must take several science and biology classes to even get into a med school so off he went. One of those biology classes gave him an assignment to go to a local hazardous waste environmental services business and give a detailed research paper on it.
That day came and off he went over to the hazardous waste business so that he could tour and get the information he needed to compose his research paper. Little did he know that he was going to be there just as their asbestos abatement team was returning to the property to finish up a job they were just working on. He got to see just how all of the items were carefully treated and sent off to the specific labs and other information about the asbestos abatement job that was just completed. He was so intrigued by what he was seeing that he started to ask questions about the cost of performing an asbestos abatement procedure and other details. To his unbelief, he found that the cost of these asbestos abatement jobs was quite costly and most covered by insurance. I guess that really touched him as the schooling to become a cardiac doctor was mind-boggling and just finishing out his current schooling would provide him with enough education to go into the asbestos abatement profession.
The short flight really provided me with plenty of knowledge and I was so inspired by his journey to get into the asbestos abatement field. As we were departing the plane he handed me his card. I didn’t even look at it until later that evening in my hotel. By darn, he’s the owner of Phoenix Enviro Clean. I guess it didn’t take him long to figure everything out and follow his passions.
