Asbestos is a dangerous material used widely in Australian construction before it was banned in 2003. It poses health risks such as scarred lung tissue and lung cancer in those who are exposed to it, either by mining it, manufacturing and building with it, or living where the asbestos building material has broken down and started releasing fibres into the air. If you suspect your building may have been built with asbestos, get it tested by hiring an asbestos expert through iseekplant today.
An asbestos removal expert can test for asbestos by taking samples from various parts of your building, such as internal walls and ceilings, and sending them to a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited laboratory. After the samples are examined in the lab, you will receive a detailed report detailing whether there is asbestos in your building, where it is, and what type. The types of asbestos are friable and non-friable; both are dangerous once their structural integrity has been compromised, but friable asbestos presents a higher level of danger even while intact. Asbestos removalists isolate the area and install temporary sheeting to contain any dust, as well as using PVA and water during removal to stop fibres becoming airborne. They take these precautions to minimise health risks to anyone in the vicinity and follow safety regulations while removing the cladding, gutters, fascias, flooring materials, ceilings, rooves, insulation, fences and walls that contain the asbestos. The panels of asbestos-containing materials are then wrapped in two layers of thick builder’s plastic and disposed of at a registered waste facility. Your building is then cleaned of any leftover dust or particles with a specially filtered vacuum.
Emergency asbestos removal is also available to those whose building have been damaged by fires, floods or storms. An asbestos removal contractor will check the air quality, identify the damaged asbestos, restrict access to the area, contain and remove the asbestos in a more timely manner than non-emergency asbestos removal.
