What to Expect During an Asbestos Removal?

Asbestos exposure is dangerous because its fibres are extremely minute – about 20 microns in diameter – when inhaled can cause damage to the abdominal lining and the lungs. The fibres can accumulate inside the body and cause inflammation and scarring ultimately leading to severe diseases such as lung cancer.

That’s why it’s important to contact licensed asbestos removal contractors for asbestos removal in West London. In this article, we will shed light on the process that is generally involved in disposing of asbestos.

The Asbestos Removal Process Exposed

When the team arrives, they will first seal the room(s). The team will then use plastic bags to seal ducts, doorways and windows. Afterwards, the company personnel will place asbestos danger signs on the doorway to prevent entry inside the house. They wear disposable suits, gloves and respirators while performing the job.

The asbestos removal team will then install two giant filters outside the room windows. The filters will create negative air pressure that will prevent asbestos fibres from escaping to the other rooms. Next, the building material containing the asbestos is removed. The edge of a damaged material containing asbestos is taped off to prevent the release of asbestos fibre.

Then the asbestos removal team will vacuum the debris from the floor and dispose it in a sealed plastic bag. All the contaminated clothing, debris, and material are taken back and dumped into a sealed dumpster.
