Paul’s Rubbish Removal is a Licensed Asbestos Removalist at your service 24/7.
Did you know that homeowners are permitted to remove up to ten (10) square meters of non-friable asbestos? Although asbestos is not generally considered hazardous, the fact that they emit particles or fibres into the air poses a health risk.
The most common way for fibres to enter our bodies is through inhalation. When these fibres enter our lungs, our body will have a difficult time eliminating or breaking them down. Because of the safety risks involved, some territories prohibit DIY removal of this substance.
Particularly in Sydney, DIY asbestos removal is prohibited. Apart from the financial and legal consequences, doing the removal yourself poses significant health issues. That is why a competent and Licensed Asbestos Removalist with exceptional skills and training is required to handle the job. Furthermore, for DIY home renovators, we strongly advise you to be aware of the asbestos laws in your jurisdiction.
Paul’s is a Licensed Asbestos removalist in Sydney providing asbestos removal and disposal to residential and commercial properties. To learn more about our junk removal services, talk to us so we can address your concerns and questions directly.
Where Does Asbestos Come From?
Asbestos is defined as the fibrous form of mineral silicates that belong to the serpentine and amphibole groups of rock-forming minerals.
This substance can be found in our homes, commercial properties, and the environment. It’s because the substance was primarily used for residential and commercial construction or renovation in the twentieth century. So, if your home or building was built before 1990, this substance is likely to be present.
Asbestos is commonly found in the construction supplies listed below, but not limited to:
- Cement products e.g fibre cement sheets and pipes
- Insulation products e.g. loose-fill, pipe and boiler insulation
- Friction materials e.g. clutch plates, brake linings
- Gaskets, Vinyl floor tiles and Linoleum
- Electrical meter boards
- Roofing and packing materials
- Paints and protective paper
- And more…
Is Asbestos Removal Hazardous?
Yes. When the substance is released into the air and inhaled, it poses a serious health risk. Inhalation of asbestos fibre has been linked to respiratory diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Because of the health risks involved with asbestos, the Australian government banned its use in December 2003. Today, asbestos remains a public health concern.
There are two classifications of asbestos, these are:
- Friable asbestos or loosely bound asbestos or powder form that is far more dangerous than bonded asbestos (non-friable). It is primarily used in fire-proofing, sound-proofing and insulation of a commercial or industrial building.
- Non-friable asbestos or bonded asbestos is commonly found in residential and commercial buildings. This substance is in a solid and rigid form that is referred to as fibro short for fibrous, AC sheeting or asbestos cement.
If you suspect that your property has asbestos, Paul’s Rubbish Removal will conduct a thorough visual inspection. If asbestos removal is required, our team is highly trained to give you detailed information and proper management.
You may also want to look into NATA-accredited laboratories to further help you answer all your concerns. Furthermore, before you go ahead, keep in mind that fees and turnaround times may vary between laboratories.
Understanding the Risks of Asbestos
Every year, since 2011, there are 701 people of which are 80% male diagnosed with mesothelioma. Negligence or lack of awareness of the risk of health-related issues involved with asbestos can put a person at risk.
As a result, we strongly recommend all property owners not to disturb any asbestos products, especially in an internal setting. Once the substance is disturbed, it can stay in the atmosphere for up to 48 hours.
Contact a Licensed Asbestos Removalist in Sydney to avoid coming into contact with these asbestos particles.
How Much Does Asbestos Removal Cost?
The cost of asbestos removal is determined by both the size of the area and the amount of the substance to be removed. Furthermore, removing a large amount of asbestos can be costly.
