Asbestos exposure can result in a variety of health complications, including lung cancer, respiratory disorders, and lung inflammation and scarring. Make sure your home, commercial, and industrial property are clear of this hazardous material since that is why it is so important. Thin filaments make up the natural mineral known as asbestos. Asbestos fibers can become airborne in damaged home construction goods, posing a risk to everyone who breathes in the poisonous dust. The removal of asbestos is another service we do on its own. To learn more about this priceless service, contact us right away or ask your Shield sales representative.
Risk elements that affect how serious an asbestos-related sickness includes:
Any asbestos-containing products and materials might be hazardous to handle. Asbestos fibers can easily enter the air if the substance is already cracked or damaged.
There is no safe threshold for asbestos exposure, according to research. Only experts with the necessary certificates should handle and remove asbestos to avoid exposure.
Professionals in abatement are highly trained to adhere to both state and federal rules. The EPA mandates that abatement specialists complete extensive training and are accredited.
There’s a good probability that asbestos was present in the majority of the building materials used to create your building if it was constructed before 1990.
Check your flooring to check whether it has vinyl, which almost certainly contains asbestos.
Before 1990, pipes were insulated with white or grey asbestos. Check the insulation around your pipes to see if any of it is outdated.
There is a possibility that asbestos is present in old ceiling tiles.
The first step to take if you have any of these health issues and are concerned about asbestos in your house is to have it professionally tested. Any additional exposure will exacerbate symptoms and increase the risk to you and your family members through direct contact or airborne contact. It is advisable to let a professional secure the area and facilitate a safe and thorough removal rather than looking for the asbestos yourself.
We obtain permits, have the equipment certified, and give employees the appropriate training and personal safety equipment. You may be sure that all rules will be observed and safety precautions will be done.
Before removing any asbestos-containing items, containment must be achieved, which is a crucial step in the process. To avoid the discharge of asbestos fibers into the environment, regulations mandate that an abatement take place in a negative air environment. We set up clean rooms with decontamination showers where necessary (high-risk). All moderate and high-risk abatements are subject to air monitoring throughout the project by a separate consultant.
When we remove asbestos from your building in Edmonton, we begin with containment, much like we do with mold. The asbestos-containing portion of your property is sealed off by our asbestos abatement team, who are dressed in full hazmat protective gear. Using machinery for moving air, we produce negative air. Before we start the abatement procedure, an environmental specialist does a visual inspection of the enclosed area. Materials containing asbestos are taken out and bagged. The materials are then disposed of by Edmonton Abatement Guidelines. A clearance examination is then carried out by an environmental professional to make sure all asbestos-related materials have been eliminated from your house.
Everyone who handles asbestos should be well protected. Goggles and respirators with high-efficiency particulate air filters, or HEPA filters, are examples of protective apparel. Additionally, it is strongly advised that anyone handling asbestos use rubber boots, disposable coveralls, and gloves.
Never dispose of asbestos or materials connected to asbestos in the trash. All asbestos-containing products should be appropriately packed and dumped at a landfill designated for asbestos. Waste bags made of asbestos are intended exclusively for things that contain dangerous compounds.
The bags are fully sealed with duct tape after being filled. They are put in double-sealed waste containers with warning labels that specify the address of the asbestos’ source during transit to the landfill for that material.
