Asbestos Removal Auckland

Abestos exposure can cause serious health and safety issues. iDry Restoration ensures safe asbestos removal so you can get on with renovations. 

Asbestos Removal Service

Rules and regulations should be followed while attempting to perform the removal of asbestos in Auckland. The enforcement of laws discourages improper removal, labelling, and disposal of asbestos, ensuring that people are not exposed to airborne fibres of asbestos. While homeowners can inadvertently expose themselves and others to harmful toxins, they should avoid disturbing or removing asbestos on their own. 

You should hire an experienced asbestos removal professional because they will handle the job with care and precision. They are trained to identify every last trace of this dangerous material, so you can breathe a sigh of relief that your home is safe again! 

Exposure to asbestos leads to numerous diseases, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. The toxic fibres of asbestos are unidentifiable with the naked eye upon becoming airborne, increasing the chances of exposure to these toxic fibres. These fibres are lodged in the linings of different organs if inhaled or ingested, resulting in health issues in the abdomen, lungs, and heart.

Two Types of Asbestos

Fariable Asbestos
Class A or Friable Asbestos
Class A asbestos is commonly known as friable asbestos. It can be crushed into dust after getting crumbled easily in its dry state. Friable asbestos is rated as the most hazardous type as it can result in a high risk of exposure after getting released into the air. This strongly relates to the fact that Class A asbestos can easily come into contact or be inhaled by any person or animal in the respective area. 

Experts often come across pure asbestos as the percentage of asbestos, which is evident in Class A asbestos, can go up to 100%. We need to ensure that the removal of friable asbestos is undertaken in full containment with air-sealed locks and air filtration devices. 
The presence of friable asbestos is evident in the following:
• Insulation
• Behind floor tiles
• Dust contaminated by asbestos
• Deteriorating non-friable asbestos
Non-Fariable Asbestos
Class B or Non-Friable Asbestos

Class B asbestos is also known as non-friable asbestos. Rather than being in its pure form, this type often gets mixed up with other materials like plastic and cement. Even though the percentage of asbestos in these products is only 15%, they are commonly used for building purposes due to their feature of enhancing strength. Compared to Class A asbestos, it is thought to be safe as long as it is sealed, left alone, and taken care of. 

The removal of non-friable asbestos necessitates experts obtaining a Class B license. As there aren't many airborne fibres in Class B asbestos, removing it doesn't pose too much of a risk. 
The presence of non-friable asbestos is evident in the following:
• Plastics, including adhesives and paints
• Joint compounds and plaster
• Applications of soundproofing
• Roofing and sliding tiles
• Cement and asbestos shingles
• Insulation materials for furnaces and pipes

Asbestos Removal Process

iDry Restorations is here for you with its key services for the removal of asbestos:
1. Visual Inspection
iDry Restorations conducts a visual inspection to determine the presence of asbestos in certain materials. This serves as the first step towards ascertaining the presence of asbestos. The asbestos assessment report along with the visual inspection gives clarity of the job. Our experts have been trained by professionals and have the skills and knowledge they need for this restoration process. 
2. Removal of Asbestos
It is strongly recommended by law to appoint licenced experts for the removal of asbestos. iDry Restorations serves as a reputed name that will: 
• Prepare the site by building containment.
• Remove materials containing asbestos sensitively
• Dispose of the materials containing asbestos
3. Encapsulation
In some instances, not all asbestos can be removed safely. In such situations, it is advised to seal off the harmful material and leave the asbestos as is. You should be worried about asbestos only when it is broken, which allows it to become airborne. iDry Restorations performs a process known as encapsulation, which penetrates the asbestos by coating the asbestos with a sealant. This prevents the release of asbestos dust by hardening the fibres. 
4. Clearance Certificates
A clearance certificate, which serves as a safety document, is being offered through careful inspection of the building. This serves as a piece of evidence that the property is safe to occupy after the thorough removal of asbestos-containing materials. As per recent changes in the law, air monitoring is also carried out by a licenced independent assessor.
