Asbestos Removal Safety Precautions

When it comes to asbestos removal from a roof, a common approach Is the dry and wet spray method.

The following are among the key features and benefits of each technique.

1. Wet Spray Method

In this technique, it is possible to suppress asbestos fibres, yet it may be difficult to eliminate them entirely.

Nevertheless, it is a popular method for removal whether from a plant or building structure. With the wet spray method, you will have to constantly use a low-pressure type of water supply as you wet down this harmful substance. One way to do this is by using a garden hose with a pistol grip.

2. Dry method

It is only advisable to use the dry method of removing asbestos when the wet spray technique is not applicable such as when the area has live electrical conductors present, or when pieces of equipment may be severely damaged once sprayed with water.

This method also poses certain risks such as more chances of releasing fibres into the air.

In case this method is implemented, it is recommended to fully enclose the work area with plastic sheeting.

Those who are tasked to take part in the asbestos removal operation are also required to wear safety equipment or protective clothing and use special tools such as a HEPA-fitted vacuum cleaner to minimise the spread of airborne toxic fibres.

Your Home

If you are positive that there is asbestos in your home, it is best that you leave it undisturbed to prevent the release of toxic fibres.

However, if you need to start working with or near an area suspected of being contaminated, you should keep the following points in mind:

  • Avoid using power tools or cutting discs
  • Refrain from using compressed air or high-pressured water hoses
  • Never walk on asbestos cement roofs with corrugated texture to prevent yourself from falling through the roof
  • As much as possible, have the material evaluated by a laboratory that is NATA-accredited (specifically when you are not sure whether it contains asbestos or not)
  • Keep the material wet to prevent the release of dust and fibres
  • Make sure the area where you work is well-ventilated to prevent suffocation
  • Always contact a qualified and Licensed Professional for direct contact or Removal
