Melbourne Asbestos Removal – Flues & Pipes

Melbourne Asbestos Removal Flue Project

One of our common north based Melbourne asbestos removal services are removing asbestos contained flues & pipes. Most recently, we got called out to Melbourne’s northern suburbs, Thornbury to remove a water service flue approximately 2.4 metres long. Removing asbestos flues can often take a few hours to a day depending on the size, height of the house and restrictions to access the flue. This project took just over half a day due to the height of the home and length of the flue that needed removal. Check out the images below and see some similar projects here.

Asbestos Flues & Pipes

There is a high chance that flue pipes and fittings in older homes contain asbestos. Flues, fittings and pipes with asbestos may be found in the following locations around the home:

  • Bathroom
  • Bedroom
  • Fencing
  • Fireplace
  • Internal and external plumbing
  • Roof
  • Gutters

 

Two forms of asbestos can be found in the home, they are:

  • (Most common) Firmly bound material-  asbestos cement sheeting or ‘fibro’; water or flue pipes, vinyl floor tiles or ‘lino’, plaster patching compounds to name a few.
  • Loose asbestos fibres – hot water pipes, domestic heaters and stoves, and ceiling insulation.

Heater Flues

Home heating systems back in the days heavily used asbestos. Chimney flues, furnaces, and wood-burning stoves were all made with asbestos due to its fire-proofing ability. If disturbed, asbestos fibres may get into the air where they can be inhaled. If your heating system contains asbestos, engage with Southstar Asbestos Removals, we are a licensed Melbourne asbestos removal service and can inspect and remove heating systems.

Furnace gaskets also used asbestos to keep heat from leaking. Asbestos materials in furnaces can be dangerous as overtime, the heat from the furnace can cause asbestos to become friable. This means that it can become loose and airborne.

Call Southstar Asbestos Removals today to have your asbestos flue or pipe safely removed!
