Effects of Negative Pressure & Dust Control

Heavy metal dust, silica, lead, asbestos and many other small particulates in the workplace can be extremely hazardous. Enviro-Vac industrial HEPA vacuum loaders, vacuum systems and negative pressure enclosures and containments are ideal for dust removal.


Enviro-Vac have over 40-years of experience removing and containing some of the most hazardous dusts found on a job site, facility or in a building. Our long-time employees have many years of practical experience, are certified in numerous interconnected categories and specialized training to master specific disciplines in effective hazardous materials abatement and decontamination in facilities and buildings as well as the application of negative pressure machines, dust removal and control, especially as it relates to hazardous or combustible dust.

WorkSafe regulations for removal and or control of hazardous dust requires HEPA filtered negative air machines, as well as training in dust suppression and control. This is typically achieved by creating a negative pressure in an area or facility by installing an enclosure around a work area or within a building that can be placed under negative pressure with an air flow created to extract dust and prevent dust from escaping unfiltered. It is important for project designers and risk-assessors to take the airflow within the negative pressure space into consideration as the air leaving the space must also be filtered typically using a specially designed portable air scrubber or HEPA negative air machine.

The capabilities of our personnel, our certificates of approval, and our long-term focus on innovation has driven our reputation for delivering cost efficient and flexible environmental contracting services and abatement of hazardous materials, and from the early beginning, our expertise in industrial vacuum services. This, along with the retention and longevity of Enviro-Vac employees is key to being able to provide these critical services consistently through an established protocol.
