So, if you plan to renovate your old properties, you should consider to have it checked for the carcinogenic material contamination and remove it completely. The remediation work is dangerous and may lead to a massive exposure of the fibers. When entering the body, these fibers will stay for years and develop internal damage without any sign at all.

  3. 3. An Insight of Asbestos Danger Asbestos-containing material, or we can call it ACM, is basically categorized in two basic form. The first one is called a friable material. The form is defined as a contaminated material that can be destroyed easily just by hand. Due to the fragile nature, it is considered to have a higher risk to fly the fibers and creating a wider area of exposure. The second one is called a non-friable material. The fibers in this form are still bonded and the potential risk of the fibers being released into the air is low. However, bonded asbestos still possess some danger as it can be damaged, either by accident or by nature. Both types of material must have a proper and correct handling. Clear Asbestos Removal Sydney gives you the ease to find the help you seek. Below are factors that can help you understand more about us and why should you come to us: Reference: sbestos-removal/
  4. 4. ACM is hard to be identified An asbestos material is difficult to be analyzed just by looking at it. Its tiny size can give a hard time to figure out whether a product is contaminated or not. If in doubt, you must take preventive action by consider it as an ACM. You need to be more careful in disrupting certain parts within your premises. Some ACM can be in a form of, wall sheeting, insulation, behind of an electric box, vinyl floor, wet area in the kitchen and bathroom, roof, fence, and many others. Still, you have to take the suspected products for further identification. A certified removalist can help you out with the identification work. You’ll get the result in no time. If you find a negative result, then you don’t have to worry. But if find it positive, it means that your property has been contaminated, and you need to take further action to have it removed.
  5. 5. DIY: To repair or not to repair In most cases, a DIY renovation involving ACMs can only result a severe level of exposure. Due the lack of knowledge of which structure’s part that may contain asbestos, you may just put yourself in grieve danger. Any disturbance to an ACM can accidentally release it fibers and contaminating the surroundings. As an example, just by puncturing an ACM with a thumbtack can release up to 60,000 fibers into the air. Without realizing it, you can inhale those critical minerals. When they are inside the body, you wouldn’t want to imagine the end result. Reference: asbestos-removal/
  6. 6. Can I remove asbestos from my home myself? Although householders are legally entitled to carry out asbestos removal, we DO NOT recommend this practice. According to theOccupational Health & Safety Regulations 2007 Part 4.3 Division 7 Subdivision 2, an unlicenced person may remove non-friable asbestos material if the area does not exceed 10m2 and the total time over which the removal is performed does not exceed one hour in any 7-day period. If you decide to remove asbestos yourself, we strongly encourage careful handling and adherence to safety practices. Asbestos fibres are dangerous and pose a risk not to only yourself, but to your family and neighbours. If the product is loosely bound we urge you to contact a licensed professional. If you are removing firmly-bound asbestos, we suggest that you wear disposable personal protective equipment (PPE). Double wrap the material in strong, thick (at least 0.2mm) plastic bags labelled as "Asbestos". Dispose of the material along with the breathing apparatus and protective clothing at an appropriate waste treatment centre. A list of licensed asbestos removalists can be obtained from the Service Provider Directory at the WorkSafe Victoria website.
  7. 7. How do I dispose of asbestos? Asbestos waste needs to be disposed of at a site which has been approved by your local council as soon as possible. Each council sets its own rules on if and how it receives asbestos waste. Contact your local council to find out where you can dispose of asbestos waste, any conditions for disposal (e.g. time of day, maximum amount at one time) and how much it will cost. You can also use a licensed waste removal company to collect and remove asbestos waste for you. They can provide different bins and containers, including drums and skips, for asbestos waste. Waste removalists can be found in the Yellow Pages under “Asbestos” or “Rubbish Removal”.
  8. 8. If you are taking the asbestos waste to your council’s approved site, place the double wrapped/bagged asbestos waste in a trailer or in the back of a utility or truck. Secure the load to make sure it doesn’t bounce or fly out, tear the plastic wrapping/bags or break the asbestos. Follow the council’s directions when you arrive at the site. There is a map created by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) of Victorian landfills licensed to receive asbestos. This will assist you to identify the closest disposal option. Landfills are categorised as: • Domestic (householder DIY) • Commercial and domestic • Commercial only Reference: resources/asbestos-removal-and-safe-handling/
