Asbestos was used widely in the 1970s for flooring, roofing, and insulation in most offices and residential homes. However, with time, people began getting rid of such asbestos from buildings with the reason that it posed grave danger to their health. This global danger was recognized by both the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Labor Organisation (ILO) in 2006. The ILO came to a resolution to streamline efforts made to eliminate the use of asbestos in the future. This was a measure to guard the health as well as the safety of all workers.
Whenever the products of asbestos weaken, they start emitting fibers in the air, which poses a high health risk. If you breathe it in, these fibers end up causing harm to people. These include breathing complications, lung and asbestosis cancer, which may take a lifetime to deal with. It is therefore highly recommended to remove the asbestos before the threat escalates.

Asbestos disposal is considered a very risky business. Due to this reason, it must be handled effectively by specialists. This must also be in line with the strict laid out procedures for the minimization of risks to the environment and people too. According to the practice code, asbestos removal requires one to make a list of existing asbestos. This list is called a register and helps in the identification of the existing asbestos in the said building. Our licensed contractors know all the types of asbestos and the ways to handle each of them.
There is a framework set for the process of asbestos removal on either large or small scale which is what our professionals follow. The removal takes place in the following stages:
This is carried out by the professional in order to prepare the safest and best method of work. This stage is crucial because every site has its own plan. This is also where we involve the client in the process of planning so that they have an idea of exactly what is to be carried out. The work schedule and time plan are detailed here too. This includes equipment needed and the electric installations to be dealt with.
Removal methods include:
Wet methods - This is where the site is saturated with water while the asbestos sheets are removed by a method that leads to the least agitation. It can only be used where electric connections pose no safety hazard.
Dry methods - This method is mostly used where electric/electronic components cannot be effectively managed or where they can easily be damaged by water.
