Proper Asbestos Waste Disposal Falls Under Strict Guidelines

Asbestos is a harmful material found in many older homes, and there are strict guidelines for asbestos waste disposal. All Southern Asbestos Removal has years of experience in the proper removal and disposal of asbestos, offering you confidence in our ability to detect and remove it from your home. Protecting your family from harmful materials that are invisible to the naked eye is our main priority.

 

The Importance of Asbestos Removal and Disposal

Asbestos has been used in construction since the late 19th century for its strength, affordability and resistance to fire and heat. It was also used in electrical and building insulation throughout the home.

  • The tiny fibres that make up asbestos can become airborne and inhaled causing life-threatening illness such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
  • There are specific regulations regarding the removal and disposal of asbestos that require licensed technicians to perform to eliminate airborne particles from invading the rest of your home.
  • Once the asbestos is properly removed and disposed of, you can begin your renovation project in safety, although we probably did a lot of the demolition for you.

 

Benefits of Asbestos Disposal

Hiring a qualified professional team to remove dangerous asbestos from your home offers you peace of mind that the job will be done right, and your home will be left asbestos free.

  • Our company adheres to all SafeWork NSW requirements regarding the removal and disposal of asbestos. We use only licensed waste disposal sites and register the waste with NSW EPA Wastelocate as per regulations.
  • We always wear the proper protective clothing and use the appropriate breathing apparatus to ensure our workers' safety during the removal process. We erect protection barriers to prevent fibres from entering your ductwork and infecting your entire home.
  • We take care of your neighbours by notifying them of the removal process to ensure they take proper precautions while outside during the abatement. Our process of wetting down material to prevent airborne contamination and proper sealing processes minimises particles from exiting the building.
