If you ever find asbestos in your home, do not even think about removing it yourself.
Asbestos contains harmful dust particles that can pose a health risk to you and your family. However, should you find material that contains asbestos but shows no sign of damage, there should be no cause for alarm and the material can be left in place. For example, cement sheet walls and ceilings that contain asbestos and are still in good condition should not cause any alarm, especially if they are coated with paint.
It is a safe practice to regularly inspect materials around your home from time to time. Should you come across asbestos, always ensure that you engage the services of asbestos removal service providers like Coastline Environmental Solutions to handle the process professionally. Professional asbestos removal companies offer a wide range of services both for commercial and residential properties.
If you are not sure if what you have come across is asbestos, you should have it tested. We can schedule a technician that specialize in analyzing building materials to visit your location. You may also call us and we can give you directions on how to correctly send in a sample.
Should you accidentally break material containing asbestos wipe off the dust with a damp cloth, tie the cloth in a plastic bag and dispose of in the rubbish bin. Avoid using a vacuum cleaner at any cost as it will not filter out all the dust particles. It is even likely to discharge more asbestos dust particles into the air.
It is not advisable to remove asbestos on your own, but in case you do, you are advised not to use power tools or abrasive sanding discs. As a requirement by law, you should comply with safety procedures and legislation that govern asbestos removal. The best approach to the process is always to engage the services of professional and licensed asbestos handlers.
