If inhaled, asbestos fibres pose a very real danger to health. Many older buildings still have asbestos present in the structure including roofs, walls, ceilings ,cladding and soffits/eaves.
Our specialist technicians can clean and decontaminate residential, industrial or commercial properties and for your complete peace of mind, we will provide a clearance certificate on job completion.
Our Asbestos Removal Process
01 : Construction of the building enclosure (Friable Removal)
The design and installation of the enclosure takes into account the provision and location of decontamination facilities and precautions that must be met to prevent the spread of asbestos contamination outside the designated work area. We concentrate on air quality within the enclosure, as there must always be sufficient oxygen. Any machinery emitting potentially dangerous gases will be placed outside the enclosure. Our team will also note the temperature within the enclosure and any other hazards.
02 : Enclosure zones
Signage, partitions, fencing and barriers will be installed to ensure the public does not enter the work site. The security and safety of the removal site and work area will be maintained at all times. The site is to be clearly defined and marked to warn people that asbestos removal work is being carried out. The distance between working areas and barriers is determined by whether the ACM (Asbestos-Containing Material) is friable or bonded, the level of activity that surrounds the site, the method of removal and the types of barriers that are to be used.
03 : Negative air pressure contamination control
The construction of the building enclosure ensures that all airborne particles remain within the work site. To prevent the escape of airborne asbestos fibres from an enclosed work area, a negative air pressure unit will be installed to create negative air pressure within the enclosed area. The extraction equipment will operate continuously until all removal and decontamination tasks have been completed.
04 : Waste removal
A1 Asbestos Removals is fully licensed by the Environment Protection Authority. This allows us to safely transport asbestos waste for disposal.
05 : Air monitoring (Friable & Commercial)
Our team will perform airborne asbestos fibre sampling to assess the effectiveness of our control measures. Air monitoring includes control monitoring and clearance monitoring and is performed whenever ACM (Asbestos-Containing Material) is being removed to ensure the control measures are effective.
06 : Insulation Vacuuming
We also provide a mobile insulation vacuming service.
07 : Friable asbestos removal
The friable asbestos is material which can be reduced to powder by mere hand pressure. Low density board (LDB) is also deemed friable due to its high concentration of asbestos. Our team is comprised of both A and B class removalists. For the removal of friable asbestos our A class licensed removalists ensure that friable asbestos is safely removed according to the strict Workplace Health and Safety regulations. This is regularly carried out at residential, commercial and industrial properties.
