Asbestos Removal in Caringbah
Asbestos is a fibrous silicate that was a popular component of various building materials for many decades. Asbestos products were banned in Australia in 2003 due to the health risks associated with asbestos exposure. If your home was built or renovated before 1990, it is likely to contain old asbestos-rich materials that you should remove and replace. Asbestos Sutherland offers safe asbestos removal in Caringbah and surrounding suburbs in the Sutherland Shire.
Typical applications of asbestos in a building include:
- Fire-proofing. Asbestos is non-flammable and is often found in fire-resistant insulation for walls and ceilings in older homes.
- Exterior wall cladding. Asbestos cement was a popular wall cladding choice for simple, durable exterior walls in Australia in the 1940s and 1950s.
- Roofing. Fibrous asbestos cement roofs begin to weather over time and deposit dangerous fibres into gutters and stormwater drains.
How Our Asbestos Removal in Caringbah Works
Asbestos exposure occurs when asbestos products break down over time, and the fibres become airborne. The fibres are not visible to the naked eye and inhaling them can cause severe health concerns such as asbestosis and lung cancer.
How Asbestos Sutherland removes and disposes of asbestos products:
- Inspection. Our EPA-certified asbestos assessors conduct a site assessment to determine your risk of exposure. We offer you an obligation-free quote for our removal services and draw up an asbestos removal control plan.
- Removal. It is dangerous and illegal for homeowners to remove asbestos without a certified professional. We remove asbestos products following legal protocols, using the appropriate personal protection to ensure our team is safe from exposure.
- Disposal. The team double wraps the removed asbestos products in approved 200mg plastic. We transport it to the Lucas Heights Landfill Station, where it is processed and disposed of. We will issue an asbestos clearance certificate once the site is clear and safe from asbestos products.
