Domestic Asbestos Removal

Domestic Asbestos Removal

There are many things homeowners are unaware of when it comes to domestic asbestos removal. While many homeowners are capable of doing DIY renovations, if your home has asbestos, it is recommended to call in a domestic asbestos removal professional to do the job.

For any domestic asbestos removal over 10 square metres, a licensed removalist must remove the asbestos.

DIY Asbestos Removal

DIY asbestos removal can occur if the asbestos is less than 10 square metres. the total time of asbestos removal work must also be performed in any period of seven days and must not exceed one hour (this period is the cumulative total time the asbestos removal work is carried out by all employees over a period of seven days).

If you decide to remove asbestos yourself, it is recommended that:

  • No one is near your work area unless wearing PPE.
  • The clothing you wear underneath overalls can be disposed of.
  • No electrical wiring or products are active or near by.
  • You turn off heating and cooling systems.
  • You wear PPE and a mask at all times.
  • Plastic sheeting covers the work area.

Asbestos Risk

During demolition or renovation activities, asbestos is at its highest risk of exposure. Exposure to asbestos can come from inhaling or swallowing asbestos fibres. Asbestos, regardless of its size, should be removed professionally.

Asbestos (Class B) Vs. Asbestos (Class A)

Class B asbestos is known as  ‘non-friable’ asbestos. This asbestos type is bonded asbestos normally mixed and sealed into products. Compounds like cement or plastic can be mixed with asbestos. The more commonly found asbestos is non-friable.

Class A asbestos is  ‘friable asbestos’. This asbestos is powdery and can become dust from being crushed when it’s dry. Class A is the most dangerous form of asbestos. You must hire an asbestos class A removalist to remove class A asbestos.

You can be risk-free from asbestos in your home or workplace. Call Southstar Asbestos Removals for a free quote!
