    Safe asbestos removal – Never clean it yourself

    I bet we all heard at least one time about this material and the risk of exposure that leads to many lung diseases. But, how much information about asbestos do we have? Are we really prepared to deal with the situation if we find out asbestos is present in our environment? One thing’s for sure – Never try to clean or remove it yourself.

    But, what exactly is asbestos?

    You own an old house or are considering purchasing one, and you discover it contains asbestos. Everyone tells you to remove it, but you have no idea what it is or how to deal with it.

    Asbestos is made up of six naturally occurring minerals that are found in nature. All of these minerals are made up of thin fibers that are made up of even smaller microscopic fibrils that can be discharged into the air. Inhaling these fibers can cause cancer and asbestosis, both of which are highly deadly lung diseases. Asbestos is a heat-resistant and electrical insulator material, which made it a popular choice for building materials in the past.

    Despite the fact that the public was becoming more aware of asbestos as a health and safety threat, this substance remained widely employed throughout the twentieth century until the 1970s. However, because of the significant risk of exposure, they banned the use of asbestos and made it illegal in numerous nations. 

    Types of asbestos you may come across

    If the fibers are disturbed and inhaled, any type of asbestos you may come across on your property offers a substantial risk. There are six major forms of asbestos, but white, blue, and brown/black are the three you’ll encounter during construction or renovations. 

    While the color of certain types of asbestos can be used to identify them, this is not necessarily a reliable method of determining which type is present. When it comes to asbestos testing and removal, always choose an expert. 

    Common areas where asbestos can be found:

    • Plaster
    • Ceiling Tiles
    • Vinyl Floor Tiles
    • Register Vents
    • Duct Wrap
    • Popcorn Ceiling

    The removal process and why it should be removed only by professionals

    Asbestos removal is not a conventional building or reconstruction project. It necessitates particularly trained personnel as well as protective precautions. It is critical to never clean it yourself in order to avoid exposure, which can cause major health concerns. Because asbestos is outlawed all over the world due to its high-risk toxicity, you should always seek the assistance of a professional removal company.

    Asbestos-containing products that aren’t damaged, worn out, or broken are regarded as safe. Asbestos fibers can readily become airborne and enter your respiratory system if the product is already damaged. Because there is no such thing as a safe level of asbestos exposure, it should only be handled by professionals who have the necessary equipment.

    The process includes:

    Any potentially dangerous asbestos-containing product will be inspected by a competent professional. Individuals who do not have the necessary safety equipment should avoid handling hazardous chemicals. The inspector will next evaluate whether the materials just need to be encapsulated or completely removed.

     Following the inspection, the professionals will choose the following steps. If the asbestos materials just need to be enclosed, a coat of sealant will be placed to prevent the fibers from becoming harmful.

    If the damage is extensive and removal is required, the process will proceed with the preparation of the area. To prevent fibers from cycling into the air, turn off any ventilation systems and cover the work area with plastic sheets. Then, after the asbestos has been removed, clean and vacuum the area, and deposit all dangerously damaged asbestos in airtight containers. 

    The personnel that will be doing the work should wear protective coveralls and masks, and then clean and disinfect properly once the operation is over. After the asbestos materials have been removed, they will be disposed of in a landfill that is equipped to handle this type of waste.

    This process is followed in the same way in both residential and commercial spaces.
