In this page, we will explain how we remove asbestos from homes in Hampshire, what materials may contain asbestos fibers, and why it is essential to hire a professional asbestos removal company.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in construction products, such as insulation, flooring, piping, roofing, and cement, due to its strength, durability, and fire resistance. Asbestos fibers are microscopic, and when inhaled, they can accumulate in the lungs and cause respiratory problems and cancer.
Asbestos was commonly used in building materials before the 1980s. Some of the products that may contain asbestos fibers, include:
If you suspect that your home may contain asbestos fibers, it is crucial to get a professional asbestos inspection and testing. Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire provides asbestos testing and surveys to identify the presence and type of asbestos in your home.
Asbestos removal is a hazardous and complex process that requires specialized equipment and trained personnel. Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire follows strict safety guidelines and procedures to ensure that asbestos fibers are not released into the air during removal and disposal.
The process of asbestos removal includes the following steps:
Before starting the removal process, our team will isolate the work area by setting up plastic sheeting and negative air-pressure systems to prevent asbestos fibers from escaping into other areas of the home.
Our team will then use specialized equipment and tools to remove asbestos-containing materials, such as flooring tiles, insulation, and roofing materials. Asbestos fibers release into the air during the removal process, so our team wears protective clothing and respirators to minimize exposure.
After the asbestos materials have been removed, our team will clean the work area using HEPA vacuums and damp wiping to ensure that no asbestos fibers remain. The asbestos materials are then placed in sealed containers and transported to an accredited disposal site for safe and proper disposal.
After the removal and disposal process, our team will conduct air testing to ensure that there are no asbestos fibers remaining in the air. The air testing is done using specialized equipment to detect the presence of asbestos fibers.
Asbestos removal is a hazardous and complex process that can pose serious health risks if not done correctly. It is essential to hire a professional asbestos removal company, such as Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, to ensure that the removal process is done safely and effectively.
