Crew of 5 arrived to close off room containing attic access door. The preparation was time consuming & well done. Each day crew was prompt, house was protected from any damage & asbestos particles. The complete job was completed sooner than anticipated & once tarps were removed the room was spotless. For homeowners with pets, the crew gave attention to the dog & made sure the cat could not escape. Bonus points.
In preparation for new carpeting installation, we wanted asbestos tiles removed from our basement flooring. Unlike another company, Thais from Greenstream arrived on the agreed-upon date to do an evaluation and provide a quote. She was professional and courteous (and wore a mask of course) and provided a straightforward quote for the tile removal. We also wanted our old carpeting and underlay removed as well and Greenstream was able to accommodate that, which was a relief, as that alone is a large undertaking.
Thais was able to move up our date for the work to begin from a Monday to a Friday, which really helped in our timelines. The two-man crew arrived and they worked wonders in removing the tiles and underlying mastic, as well as the carpet and underlayment, along with most of the 30-year old glue which had affixed the underlayment to the concrete and to the stairs leading down to the basement.
We were extremely pleased with the work the guys did, and they worked very hard with very hot and humid weather; Thais was there to go over things with both the crew and with us before things started.
One thing we also appreciated was the use of a non-toxic mastic removal agent. The basement actually smelled a bit like lemon afterward. We couldn't be happier with the work Greenstream did, from the initial consult, to the communication before, during and after, and of course the actual job. I do not hesitate in recommending them, and the job was done for a very reasonable cost.
Had renters move out of my condo. The walls, floor, and ceiling adjacent to the windows were water damaged and covered in mould.
Thais was the project manager on this project for me and she was very easy to work with. She came, she saw, she gave me quote on the spot followed by a formal quote. They started within a week and finished just as fast. They ripped out all of my flooring, some drywall, and cleaned the areas around the windows. I asked for air testing since mould is tricky to deal with, when the results did not come in as good as expected, Thais told me exactly that and told me that the crew would go back and do some more work for us and retest. Great service, easy to work with, honest, and good workmanship.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Jay. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We count ourselves lucky for clients like you. We look forward to working with you again in the future!
From the collection of quotation, site inspection, scheduling and performing the work, this company has been very professional and explained what they will do before, during and after the work is done. Thais, the project manager came on time to inspect my attic and provided a comprehensive quotation. She is very accommodating and was able to schedule the work in such a small window. The couple who removed the molds in my attic were thorough. They perform the mold removal and redo the work on areas that were missed and thoroughly completed the job. I highly recommend Green Stream Environment, Inc to anyone who'd want to get rid of attic molds.
We discovered asbestos tiles underneath old carpet as we were preparing to renovate our upstairs. I gathered several quotes, and I chose Green Stream as my best choice in terms of competence and value. I am very happy with the asbestos removal, they took great care to complete the project very safely and they left things very clean after.
The team that came to do the asbestos removal throughout the main floor of my 1950s bungalow was efficient, professional and very accommodating. I was very impressed on how clean they were and the care they took throughout the process. Having to live in the basement and work from home throughout the removal they were accommodating and respectful of my needs as the homeowner. They followed proper removal procedures and all safety requirements. I hope you do not need to have asbestos removed, but if you do I highly recommend Green Stream Environmental Inc.
We used Green Stream Environmental to address chrysotile asbestos removal and mould remediation caused by water damage that originated in our upper floor bathroom. When we expressed concerns that our family was having health issues because of mould, Green Stream came right away to quote and were able to fit the job into their schedule on short notice. Everyone down from Manny and Gilbert has been fantastic. Jose and crew arrived on time and were respectful of our home. The preparation of the work site was neat and tidy and when they finished the job, everything was pristine and immaculate. Now we can breath easy, knowing that Green Stream didn't take shortcuts with our health. I can't say enough about this company. I would use them again if the opportunity comes up.
I feel like this is required so that it does not happen again. I hired this company based on good reviews. I had noted that prior to them coming in that I had cats in my home. Being considerate because it was almost winter, I allowed them to place the shower in my home rather than outside (which now I completely regret). They did not take the precaution to seal the entrance to the shower from inside my home. Upon my return, one of my cats was in the basement for I don't know how long breathing in asbestos. I had to duct tape the entrance myself to prevent my pet from going back into the basement. What makes the situation worse is that the work was not completed because they only chipped away the top layer. While I understand that they might have only thought that it was the top layer, its frustrating that they did not have the courtesy to chip to the concrete, just in case, given that I was paying them $3500 to remove all the asbestos. So I'm left in a frustrating situation due to these events. While I've given up on reaching out to asbestos companies because their unreliability, I just wanted to write this review to remind you to be more mindful of pets and ensure that entrances are sealed.
