What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is the fibrous form of mineral silicates, falling under the serpentine and amphibole groups of minerals. They are invariably mixed with other materials and used extensively for construction, cladding and insulation of houses, offices and factories as well as in a broad range of products, including decorative coatings, heat resistant textiles, etc. Exposure to asbestos can cause tremendous health problems and even be fatal. If you are worried about asbestos in your home, then you should look for a company that offers asbestos removal services.
Steps Taken By Asbestos Removal Company during the Abatement Process:
Asbestos inspection is the first step of the abatement process. The removalists evaluate each and every area of your home for the presence of asbestos. This toxic component can be present in a variety of construction materials, and so the professionals conduct asbestos testing to reveal out their existence. The technicians use specialised equipment to test insulation, shingles and other susceptible areas. Once the location of asbestos is detected, your home will be prepared for the next phase of the removal.
Preparing the Home:
This is one of the most crucial steps in the asbestos abatement process. The technicians will clear away all your valuable possessions like furniture and other belongings. They also cover all vents and fixtures to ensure that the fibres do not contaminate other areas of your home.
Once all the necessary precautions are taken, it is time for the asbestos removalists to come and remove this hazardous material from your property. Before asbestos is taken out of your home, they are completed wetted to prevent fibres from being released into the air. The technicians will wear respirators and protective gear to minimise their exposure to this toxic substance.
Once the asbestos are removed completely, a final testing is done to ensure that the property is free from asbestos hazards. This gives the occupants a peace of mind that their dwelling place is completely cleared away and is safe to live in.
