Perth Asbestos Removal Specialists has released a free tip sheet to help Business and Home Owners cut through the clutter and get to the most important aspects of Asbestos Removal that are essential for success. The full list of tips can be found on the company’s website, http://tiny.cc/asbestosremovalperth.
Some of the most effective tips include:
Asbestos Removal – Once asbestos has been discovered it should never be touched. Generally, asbestos is only a risk when it is disturbed in a way that produces dust that contains asbestos fibers. In a lot of instances, the presence of asbestos-containing materials in the office or home is not a major issue as long as the material has not been damaged. If the material is in good condition and does not display signs of wear and tear it can often be left in place. An example would be internal asbestos cement sheet walls or ceilings that are in good condition and coated with paint. In this instance there is no risk to health, while they are not showing signs of degradation or damage.
Asbestos Fencing Removal – This can be painstaking and back breaking work as most times hand digging the sheets is required to minimise any safety issues. In order to do the job well, the entire sheet will need to be removed, otherwise the new fence will not be correctly aligned. One point to consider is that bolts that hold the sheets in place can be rusted and difficult to remove. These can be removed by using a battery powered rattle gun with flat blade screw driver attachment. A time saving tip is to have a partner on the other side of the fence with an adjustable spanner to hold the nut in place while the rattle gun is being used.
Asbestos Sheeting Removal – When removing asbestos sheeting the work area should be sectioned off with a highly visible barrier to make certain unprotected people cannot enter the working environment. Those people directly involved in removing the asbestos sheet should wear suitable protective equipment in accordance with State Occupational Health and Safety Legislation. Prior to removal, the sheeting should be wet down as long as it is safe to do so. If at all possible, further damaging or breaking the bonded asbestos should be prevented. Minimise activities where damaged asbestos materials may be found.
When asked about the reasons behind the tip sheet, Brian Jones, Chief Marketing Officer of Perth Asbestos Removal Specialists advised,
“Most people are very fearful when they feel they have encountered asbestos and quite rightly so. As long as the correct precautions are taken, asbestos can be removed safely. It is always advisable to get advice from industry professionals to ensure all legislative requirements are adhered to and there is no danger presented to anyone”.
The tip sheet is available for free and Business & Home Owners are encouraged to share the tips with others who find the information useful. Any questions can be answered by going to the company website, http://tiny.cc/asbestosremovalperth and making contact with the company.
