What does asbestos removal include?
Here’s the kind of help you can expect from asbestos removal services.
An asbestos removal expert will take samples from various areas of your home to be sent for testing. Sample areas usually include internal walls and ceilings. The samples will be tested at a NATA (national association of testing authorities) accredited laboratory and you’ll receive a detailed report with the results once testing is complete. One thing they’ll test for is asbestos type. There are two types of asbestos, friable (non-bonded) and non-friable (bonded). Friable asbestos presents a higher level of danger, but non-friable asbestos is safe when it’s not damaged or broken. However, once it’s been compromised, dust particles are released into the air which can cause serious illnesses. Once you’ve got your test results back, you can then make decisions on the next step to take if they confirm asbestos is present.
Your asbestos removalists can help remove cladding, gutters, fascias, flooring materials, ceilings, roofs, insulation, fences, and walls. They’ll follow all safety regulations so there are no health risks to your family. They’ll isolate the area and install temporary sheeting to contain any dust. Using PVA and water during removal will stop fibres from becoming loose or airborne. After the removal of asbestos, the panels of asbestos-containing materials will be wrapped in two layers of thick builder’s plastic. Then your asbestos removalist will use a special vacuum with a HEPA filter to clean the affected area and remove any leftover dust or particles to ensure no contaminated materials remain.
After removing the impacted materials, your asbestos removal expert will then dispose of them at a registered waste facility. They’ll use their truck or ute to carry the covered materials and deliver them to designated asbestos disposal drop off points at a local tip or dump.
Emergency removal or repairs
Asbestos is most dangerous when it’s damaged, so if your property is impacted by fire, floods, or storms you may need asbestos removal services before the clean-up process can begin. Your asbestos expert will check the air quality and identify any concerning material. After restricting access to the area, they’ll make a plan to contain and remove the dangerous items. They can also communicate any dangers and concerns about the site to you and the general public.
