Safety Aspects when Removing Asbestos
As you will already know, asbestos is a substance which can present a major danger to anybody that comes into contact with it or simply lives in a property that has been built with it. When carrying out the removal of asbestos, there are various safety aspects to keep in mind and always adhere to. Thankfully for properties across the area, we at RJ Environmental are asbestos contractors Cardiff that follow all safety measures and regulations.
These safety precautions commence with a thorough asbestos survey that is carried out by our team of experts to identify if there is in fact asbestos in your property and then to establish the specific form of asbestos they will have to deal with in your property. This asbestos most likely to be found can exist in the following 3 forms:
Asbestos Cement: This form of asbestos can be found in many areas of a building, including pipes and roofing Evesham materials. Even with only 10-15% asbestos fibres, asbestos cement still isn’t safe.
Asbestos Boarding: This will be in ceiling tiles, partitions and other features, and will have 40% asbestos fibres.
Sprayed Asbestos: This is by far the most dangerous form, and with up to 80% asbestos fibres, it can be found in insulation of wooden boards and electrical equipment in many homes built between the 1950’s and mid 80’s.
After identifying the form of asbestos, our team of asbestos contractors Cardiff will then draw upon their specialist skills to safely contain and remove every trace of it from your property – utilising safety aspects which include protective clothing and masks, specially designed equipment and transportation vehicles. After a safe removal, we will even finish the job completely with our thorough buildings refurbishment service which will get your property back to its best after any changes that might have been made due to the asbestos removal.
