What is Asbestos Removal?

The main purpose of Asbestos Removal is essential to get rid of the known health hazard posed by the presence of asbestos fibres in a structure through total removal of the asbestos-containing part(s) of the building. Asbestos removal generally removes any asbestos-containing materials, including sprayed asbestos coatings, asbestos ladders or asbestos insulation from a building. It may also be performed to contain the fibres that workers have already released in the vicinity of the asbestos. This is done in many cases where it can be proven that the fibres released by the workers caused no harmful effects. This also prevents the need to sue the company’s employees in the event of an accident caused by their negligence.

MPA Asbestos Removal Adelaide includes the decontamination and cleaning of materials containing asbestos. Some of the Asbestos Containing Materials include Monomer asbestos, gel, textile fibres, insulation, roofing materials, bricks or tiles, caulk, glue, paint, hard hats, gloves, boots, and respirators. The removal methods for asbestos can be through chemical methods, mechanical, or physical removal. Chemical methods of Asbestos Removal include:

Duct Sealing: Asbestos materials are generally made of fibres that become airborne, especially when in contact with air. Therefore, they need to be sealed in ducts. The sealing will prevent these fibres from making airborne. Duct sealing is done mostly by using seams that are tightly sealed on both sides and in between. This is done to keep the fibres contained. To make sure that the fibres are trapped completely, the Duct Sealing System is used.

Asbestos Drying: During the process of Asbestos removal, a thin film of fibre gets attached to the surface that it lands on, usually on concrete. This film of asbestos becomes called Asbestos Drying, and it prevents the fibres from being airborne. For this reason, the Asbestos removal company will use a variety of machines to dry the asbestos.

Deodorizing: When there are Asbestos materials in an enclosed area, the foul smell can be quite strong, and the people who work in the work area may not be able to avoid inhaling the foul odour. To get rid of this, the company will use a variety of machines for Asbestos Removal. This includes the use of water, air, and dryers for the removal of Asbestos fibres. All of these methods for Asbestos removal ensure that the asbestos is removed safely and no fibres are released into the air.

Casing and Container Testing: During the MPA Asbestos Removal Adelaide process, special precautions must be taken to contain asbestos in the area where the Asbestos material was located. There are many methods for Asbestos casing and container testing that need to be followed. This includes using special closed containers to contain Asbestos materials and inspect the contained Asbestos materials before and after the Asbestos removal process is complete.

Disposal: Once the asbestos removal process is complete, the materials should be properly disposed of. The most common disposal technique is burning or flushing the Asbestos materials. Many companies place these materials into deep heavy trash bins and dispose of them in a landfill. Others choose to remove asbestos materials by dismantling the machinery and emptying it off the ground in an area where it is unlikely more asbestos fibres will be released into the air.
