When having asbestos removed from your house, there are a number of steps that must be completed before any work can begin.
Typically, an asbestos abatement firm will pre-clean the work area and ensure that everything is ready to go, but it never hurts to be
aware of what they will be doing and to inquire as to whether you can assist them in any way.
If you’ve hired an asbestos removal company to remove the potentially deadly fibres from your home or office building, they’ll come
prepared with all of the appropriate equipment, including plastic sheeting, duct tape, warning notices, barriers, a strong asbestos waste
container, disposal bags, and other supplies, among other things. Perhaps they will even want access to a yard hose from you.
When the asbestos removal specialists have finished evaluating and testing the area, they will create a removal control plan, which will
describe precise procedures and processes that will be followed to ensure that the removal is safe and successful. Control plans for
asbestos removal work are needed for all certified asbestos removal projects, and they will generally include the following information:
The manner in which the removal will be accomplished
These are the procedures that will be followed during the removal.
The tools, equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE) that will be utilised
The area where asbestos was found was
The type of asbestos that was used
The asbestos’s current state of repair
Preparing the Work Environment for Asbestos Removal
In addition, the work area will be prepped so that asbestos may be removed in a safe manner. The clearance crew will set up signs and
obstacles to deter people from entering the area and to separate the contaminated location from the rest of the world. In addition to
covering all vents and turning off HVAC systems, the removal professionals will seal openings with plastic sheeting and duct tape and
install a new electrical system designed specifically for the abatement, in which negative air pressure units will operate to keep
contamination from spreading outside of the work area.
Remove any and all personal possessions, loose things, soft furniture, and anything else that could be in the way or potentially be
contaminated with asbestos while working in the area. The asbestos removal specialists will cover and seal any objects that you are
unable to relocate, such as appliances and mechanical equipment, with a 6-mil polyethylene sheet to keep the asbestos from spreading.
