How to get rid of asbestos?
Removing asbestos should be one of the first items on everyone’s checklist when you move into a flat or a house erected prior to 1990s. That particular period was actually when this material hit the peak of its popularity and, unfortunately, it still resides in a lot of places. While it is all but impossible to spot it in the newest buildings, the old ones still have a vast residue on this substance that is waiting for being taken out. Even if you think that there are no reasons to be concerned, please bear in mind the fact that the specific places where asbestos occurs are often very much hidden from view (e.g. piping or insulation). So what is the best way to approach this problem? Read on and find it out yourself.
Why Blue A Ltd?
Asbestos is most dangerous when it becomes friable and deteriorated. This is why one should go to great lengths to monitor the state of this material if you have already established that it is present in your building. The release of the toxic asbestos dust which then deposits in human lungs is one of the worst-case scenarios that can be imagined in this situation. However, what if there is no absolute assurance that your dwelling may be at risk? What should you do to get the ultimate proof or put your doubts to bed, once and for all? Fortunately, companies such as Blue A Limited are your Dunstable experts at testing and removing asbestos. They have wealth of experience in both identifying this substance as well as in its extraction. Throughout the process they strive to abide by all safety norms and employ workers who are ready to anticipate challenges along the way and contain any dangers when they arise.
What should I remember about?
Your choice of the company that will take care of the process is of ultimate importance. While we do not suggest that you should try to do the removal yourself, you should also pay appropriate attention to the choice of the contractor and its testimonials. You should ensure that the people responsible for the extraction are competent, clean and law-obedient. Demanding testimonials from previous employers is a rather common strategy as is expecting the contractor to be in possession of special tools such as HEPA vacuum, which is an absolute must while cleaning the dust.
