Asbestos Removal Service

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

It is strongly recommended by regulatory agencies to appoint a certified and licensed professional for abatement of asbestos. These experts determine the presence of asbestos-containing materials through careful inspection and perform the appropriate course of action where necessary.

Exposure to asbestos leads to numerous diseases such as asbestosis, 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 the 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 their dry state. Friable asbestos is rated as the most hazardous type as they can result in high risk of exposure after getting released into the air. This strongly relates to the fact that Class A asbestos can be easily come in 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%. It is necessary to ensure that the removal of friable asbestos is undertaken by 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 their 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%; however, they are commonly used for building purposes due to their feature of enhancing strength. As compared to Class A asbestos, it is considered safe as long as it is encapsulated, undisturbed, and maintained.

The removal of non-friable asbestos necessitates experts to obtain a Class B license. The risk for removing Class B asbestos is relatively minor as the presence of airborne fibres in Class B asbestos is low.
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 for ascertaining the presence of asbestos. Asbestos assessment report along with the visual inspection give a clarity of the job. Our experts are professionally trained and highly skilled with the necessary knowledge for this restoration process.
2. Removal of Asbestos
It is strongly recommended by laws to appoint licensed 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
At 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 the 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 be occupied after the thorough removal of asbestos-containing materials. As per recent changes in the law, air monitoring is also carried out by the licenced independent assessor.
