Urgent Asbestos Removal Eaves and More…
We recently completed an urgent asbestos removal eaves project which involved removing:
- Sectioned eave linings
- Front porch ceiling
- Asbestos heater flue
- Asbestos debris throughout under the house floor.
The client decided to engage with our asbestos removal services as their front porch ceiling and eaves contained water damage showing signs of deterioration.
Asbestos Heater Flue
Often clients remove asbestos heater flues when they are replacing their heating system. In this particular project, the heater installers were in the process of installing the new heater once we removed the heater flue but immediately stopped when asbestos debris was found underneath the house. Once we removed the asbestos debris and cleared the area, the installers were able to proceed with installing the new heating system.For an example of what a heater flue looks like, see the images below.
Asbestos debris is also known as asbestos contaminated dust (ACD) is dust or debris which is asbestos material that has been ruptured. When asbestos is broken that is when asbestos can cause significant health issues as the fibres become airborne and breathable.
DIY Asbestos Removal, is it worth it?
You can remove up to 10 square metres of asbestos without a licence using safety guidelines outlined by WorkSafe and other sources. However, the removal process itself can expose you to other risks and dangers. In this particular asbestos removal project, we had to safely remove the debris in a tight confined and dark space. This required us to correctly plan out the removal and determine the most safest methods and procedures prior to instigating the removal. It’s these types of situations where homeowners need to consider whether the cost of their safety is worth removing the asbestos themselves?
