Asbestos was a widely used construction material. Over the years, it was discovered that Asbestos can cause serious health issues and it is no longer used. However, Asbestos roofing is found in some of the older buildings. You need to hire an experienced Asbestos removal company for Asbestos inspection and safe removal of Asbestos roofing from your building.
Asbestos can be mixed with different materials and it comes in different forms and different colours. This makes more difficult to find the presence of Asbestos without adequate training. Only the trained professionals can confirm whether it is present or not by a proper Asbestos survey.
How to find the presence of Asbestos? :
The professional will identify the presence of Asbestos material through sampling and testing. A small piece from your roof will be taken as a sample for the analysis. During this process, there is a high risk of inhaling and that is why professionals are advised to use appropriate safety equipment. The key things to consider are
- Wearing a protective suit to prevent hazardous inhalation.
- Sample testing should be done in a separate room without people.
- After cutting, the sample should be placed in a tight seal container.
- Avoid Air-conditions which will cause further contamination in the air.
Safe Asbestos Clearance:
Friable or Class B asbestos is very harmful and should be immediately removed as early as possible. If you suspect the presence of Asbestos in your roof you should call a qualified Asbestos removalist for proper and safe clearance. After the Asbestos Clearance from your building, the removalist will provide the Asbestos Clearance certificate. It is important to follow the standard safety procedures like
- Removal process should comply with the regulatory standard.
- Alerting people around the work area to ensure safety.
- The work area should be completely cleaned and no trace of Asbestos to be found.
