Meet Our Team of Licensed Asbestos Removal Professionals

Kristina Norlander, a mother from Sugar Land, TX, started Green Ready, Inc. after owning and managing her two SERVPRO locations with her husband Tom for more than 14 years. Being a SERVPRO owner taught her the ins and outs of owning a business and the restoration industry.

So, Kristina began learning about lead and asbestos. She obtained the necessary licenses to operate an abatement or removal company. And, she hired, Lance Anderson, who has more than 17 years of experience as an Asbestos Supervisor.

Since then, the Green Ready, Inc. team has taken the asbestos and lead industry by storm. To date, they have completed jobs for school districts, hospitals, and commercial building owners. The entire Green Ready, Inc. team works hard to stay ahead of industry changes and best practices.

Asbestos and lead abatement or removal is an extremely important and highly-regulated industry. EPA licensed contractors across the country play an important role in the safety of the public. Green Ready, Inc. works with building managers to ensure the safety of all building occupants through the implementation of Asbestos Operating and Management Programs.

Providing Excellent Service and Going Green

However, when tests confirmed the presence of lead or asbestos, her hands were tied. So, she created Green Ready, Inc. to educate commercial property owners, owners of historic homes, property managers, and employees and fulfill a need in Houston for a responsible, EPA-licensed, abatement contractor.

Since 2016, Green Ready, Inc. has completed abatement projects in schools, office buildings, hospitals, and public buildings to remove materials known to cause severe health complications. The experienced team uses the latest technology and best practices to strategically plan and manage each job for safety and efficiency.

Asbestos and lead are two things no property owner wants, but many properties and products still contain these ingredients. Most people never consider asbestos or lead exposure when they begin renovations, but older buildings contain one or both. Therefore, by law, the work must be completed by a licensed EPA contractor.

Firms must complete separate courses and certifications for lead and asbestos. In addition to the firm certification, each supervisor has to be certified, and each asbestos and lead worker has to be certified. If the contractor needs to dispose of the removed job materials, they must be a certified OSHA Asbestos Transporter. Depending on the company location and service areas, there are usually additional requirements, certifications, business licenses required to conduct abatement work.

Hire a Trusted EPA Licensed Professional

Green Ready, Inc. takes great pride in education and preparation. Properties built before the 70s are likely to contain asbestos in one or possibly several forms. In older buildings, asbestos is often found in insulation, ceiling tiles, floors, and in manufactured materials built to stand-up to extreme-heat over extended periods of time.

Since the 1970s many uses of asbestos, especially the most harmful applications, like asbestos cigarette filters have been banned. However, there are other commonly used products, like brake pads, which still contain the harmful insulator. The average person in the United States is totally unaware that asbestos is likely in their home, office, and other places they commonly visit.

That is why Green Ready, Inc. commits to being there when you need them most. Always green, always ready, when you have an emergency or loss, Green Ready, Inc. springs into action making it better than before.

Plan Ahead to Stay Safe

If you suspect your property contains asbestos, you need to have your property tested. Once you confirm the presence of asbestos, you need to create a plan for managing the risk of exposure. In addition, to complete abatement or removal, there are other effective methods to prevent inhalation like encapsulation.

Determining if your building has asbestos or lead and where in your building the risk is greatest helps you develop a safety plan to keep maintenance professionals, building technicians, employees, and visitors away from areas containing asbestos especially in areas where someone could easily cause the asbestos particles to become dislodged or airborne.
