Are you at risk of asbestos contamination? We have your solution
Concerned about what you might be breathing in? The Demolition Blokes are fully qualified in friable asbestos removal. By definition, friable asbestos is material which contains more than 1 per cent asbestos by weight or area. The list of associated dangers is extensive, as asbestosis—the most common affect—can result in terminal illness. Friable means that the microscopic crystal fibres are not securely bonded and can usually crumble when little pressure is applied. The toxic fibres then become airborne which is where the real problem arises. Humans breathe them in, and they don’t break down inside the lungs, and internal scar tissue begins to form. Despite the specific title, nearly all materials that contain asbestos can be considered friable as they degrade over time. The public need to be extra conscious about the materials they regularly come into contact with; particularly around the home. The Demolition Blokes are specialised in friable asbestos removal and promise to make your safety their priority.
How do you know if you’re at risk?
As asbestos was commonly used in manufacturing up until the mid-90’s, it’s still found in homes and buildings across South Australia. In a typical home, asbestos can be found in the exterior, roof cavity, kitchen, bathroom and outdoor area. In many cases it goes undetected, which can be extremely dangerous in the case of weather damage or when adding new instalments to your home. Even if you’re not 100% sure whether your infrastructure or décor contains asbestos, it’s worth giving us a call to come and do an on-site test for peace of mind. We conduct our tests using advanced and reliable microscopic technology to detect any asbestos fibre prevalent in your area. Within a 72-hour time frame we typically have the results and are ready to roll. If you think you might need friable asbestos removal in your home or work place, call the Demolition Blokes to rectify the problem.
Why choose the Demolition Blokes for your friable asbestos removal?
We are experts in friable asbestos removal and take every precaution to make sure the job gets done thoroughly, and correctly. We always carry out our work in full body protective suits and oxygen masks to avoid the risk of carrying fibres post-removal. We also use specific removal and disposal methods to make sure we carry out practice in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. If we have removed over 10 square feet of asbestos, sampling units are set up around the premises and an air monitoring report is undertaken. Following the report, a licensed assessor will come on site to give a clearance inspection to affirm the area is safe for re-habitation. Each of these steps are critical to make sure the job has been adequately done. The Demolition Blokes are your reliable friable asbestos removal specialists, and we always go above and beyond to maintain customer satisfaction from start to finish.
Friable asbestos removal can be dangerous, but the risk is even higher when the material goes undetected. You need a team of removalists who can act quick to coincide with your busy schedule and get the job done properly. Our aim to strip the streets of asbestos for good.
