Sydney has a range of different styles of houses, from Californian bungalows to weatherboard houses and garages, all of which may have different asbestos issues. When we are conducting asbestos removal in Sydney, we often find it is due to existing asbestos being identified in renovations, or damaged asbestos sheeting that the need to call us arises.

Whilst we provide highly competitive prices, we utilize premium safety systems to ensure your home and family is protected throughout the removal process. This includes using a H-Class HEPA vacuum to clear the site, creating an exclusion zone around the removalist site to limit exposure to other areas of your home, and utilising particle binder spray after completion.

Warning! Whatever you do don’t:

Cut / Sand / Drill / Break / Scrape / Demolish / Dump / Water blast

This will release dust particles into the air causing the bonded asbestos to become Friable.

When is Asbestos Dangerous?

Because it is so hard to destroy asbestos fibers, the body cannot break them down or remove them once they are lodged in lung or body tissues. They remain in place where they can cause disease.

There are three primary diseases associated with asbestos exposure:

Asbestosis
Lung Cancer
Mesothelioma

Asbestosis

Asbestosis is a serious, chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease. Inhaled asbestos fibers aggravate lung tissues, which cause them to scar. Symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath and a dry crackling sound in the lungs while inhaling. In its advanced stages, the disease may cause cardiac failure.

There is no effective treatment for asbestosis; the disease is usually disabling or fatal. The risk of asbestosis is minimal for those who do not work with asbestos; the disease is rarely caused by neighborhood or family exposure. Those who renovate or demolish buildings that contain asbestos may be at significant risk, depending on the nature of the exposure and precautions taken.

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer causes the largest number of deaths related to asbestos exposure. The incidence of lung cancer in people who are directly involved in the mining, milling, manufacturing and use of asbestos and its products is much higher than in the general population. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are coughing and a change in breathing. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, persistent chest pains, hoarseness, and anemia.

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that most often occurs in the thin membrane lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, and (rarely) heart. Virtually all cases of mesothelioma are linked with asbestos exposure.

Other Cancers

Evidence suggests that cancers in the esophagus, larynx, oral cavity, stomach, colon and kidney may be caused by ingesting asbestos. For more information on asbestos-related cancers, contact your local chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Determining Factors

Three things seem to determine your likelihood of developing one of these asbestos related diseases:

  1. The amount and duration of exposure – the more you are exposed to asbestos and the more fibers that enter your body, the more likely you are to develop asbestos related problems. While there is no “safe level” of asbestos exposure, people who are exposed more frequently over a long period of time are more at risk.
  2. Whether or not you smoke – if you smoke and you have been exposed to asbestos, you are far more likely to develop lung cancer than someone who does not smoke and who has not been exposed to asbestos. If you work with asbestos or have been exposed to it, the first thing you should do to reduce your chances of developing cancer is to stop smoking.
  3. Age – cases of mesothelioma have occurred in the children of asbestos workers whose only exposures were from the dust brought home on the clothing of family members who worked with asbestos. The younger people are when they inhale asbestos, the more likely they are to develop mesothelioma. This is why enormous efforts are being made to prevent school children from being exposed.

Because each exposure to asbestos increases the body burden of asbestos fibers, it is very important to reduce and minimize your exposure.

What We Do

People usually discover the presence of asbestos in their property during renovations and new home inspections. If the hazardous material is identified, it’s important to take care of it promptly because working in such environments can be risky for contractors and lead to serious health problems down the line. If you have located asbestos in your property and require asbestos removal in Sydney, don’t try and remove it yourself call a licenced contractor. If you are unsure of what the material looks like or where it may be present in your property, we will take the steps listed below:

  • Inspect Thoroughly – Our first step is to confirm the presence of asbestos and identify where it’s present. Our experts will scan your property completely and mark out areas where the product is used. This procedure ensures we can give our customers the right advice.
  • Estimate – After the inspection is done, we’ll provide an estimated cost for the asbestos removal in Sydney. On some occasions, if the areas containing asbestos are not disturbed they can remain intact.
  • Safety Setup – Asbestos fibres are known to spread through the air if they are disturbed. During the removal process it’s important to secure the area in order to protect the surroundings. We set up a perimeter around the worksite and place warning signs wherever applicable. On large scale removal, we advise homeowners to find temporary accommodation during the removal process as an added precaution. We can limit exposure to other areas of the property, but it’s a good idea to avoid it entirely during the removal process.
  • Vacuuming – After everything is set up, we get to work and carefully remove asbestos from your property. We use H-Class HEPA vacuum to clear the site and spray particle binder solution after our work is done to eliminate asbestos from your environment.
