What Do Asbestos Removal Contractors Do?
Asbestos removal contractors work closely with property owners as well as construction teams and others to determine if asbestos is present and, if so, how to properly remove it. This is done by providing a comprehensive workplan that addresses the specific needs of the property and the project at hand. In every situation, the process needs to be conducted in a manner that meets all local, state, and federal compliance requirements.
Removal contractors, also known as abatement providers, have task of determining if asbestos is present. If it is, it is then necessary to seal off the area and create a plan for the removal of that material. This takes some time and needs to be done by licensed and certified contractors to reduce the risk of any person being exposed to this harmful mineral. Asbestos removal contractors have the experience necessary to do this without putting others at risk.
Who Needs Asbestos Removal Contractors?
It is necessary to determine if asbestos is present within a home or other building through a careful analysis and evaluation. If the property was built prior to 1980, it is likely to need an inspection to determine if this material is present.
Asbestos was used heavily in the construction industry prior to that timeframe. During that time, it was used in numerous ways including in wall and ceiling materials, flooring, insulation, roofing, and fire proofing. It was heavily used in some areas because of how affordable and accessible it was. They did not know risks were present at that point.
Today, anyone that is done any type of construction work on buildings built prior to 1980 should have an asbestos inspection completed. This helps ensure that the property is safe to damage and update. If asbestos is present, even the smallest amount of inference with it can allow the particles to become airborne, putting everyone that comes into contact with it at risk of exposure.
What to Expect During Removal of Asbestos
If it is necessary for you to have asbestos material removed, your contactor will devise a plan to complete this process. That typically involves containing the area using the proper methods to eliminate any risk that the material can leave that area. This includes sealing all vents and turning off all areas of HVAC function.
Once this is done, well-trained and licensed professionals will wear protecting clothing and respiratory systems to enter into the space. They will properly remove the material reducing the amount that enters into the air. During this process, they place the material into specifically designed waste removal bags to ensure that it cannot escape. This is then disposed of properly according to local requirements. Keep in mind that there is also the need to have a decontamination zone as well as to complete thoroughly cleaning of the area to remove any fine particles. It is a thorough process and one that must be done with careful attention to detail.
