Asbestos removal companies for residential and commercial sectors
This hazardous waste material is classified as a mineral that is made up of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen, and other metal ions. These needle shaped fibres are so small that they cannot be seen unless the concentration in the air is sufficiently dense. These microscopic fibres when inhaled have been linked to various potentially fatal health conditions. Among these conditions are lung cancer, asbestosis, or mesothelioma.
Asbestos is an excellent material for insulation because the fibres are strong, flexible and will not burn. The three most common forms of this material are Chrysolite, Amosite and Crocidolite. When these fibres are mixed with other materials, they are known as asbestos containing material.
Why the need to remove asbestos?
Only once the health dangers of this mineral became public knowledge, was the need established for companies who could specialise in the removal thereof. These health hazards have been proven to accompany the utilisation of asbestos products. You will still find this hazardous waste material in floor tiles, roof tiles, roof sheeting, rainwater goods, ceiling boards, partitioning, insulation on pipes, boilers and in a multitude of insulation installations.
With mounting evidence that this mineral does cause a number of fatal diseases, it was quickly outlawed in many countries. South Africa has followed this trend and to ensure that this is upheld, has obligated building owners to comply with the new legislation.
Harmful fibres are released when asbestos containing products are chipped, cracked, drilled or cut by mechanical means and also because of degradation due to age. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 – Asbestos Regulations, 2001, all businesses, factories, commercial and industrial buildings require a register, which indicates whether or not this mineral is present within the structures. Once it is established that it is indeed present in a structure, a plan must be formulated for the removal or treatment thereof. We are highly skilled and experienced to perform these duties. We form part of a handful of asbestos removal companies in South Africa, that are accredited to remove or treat such materials. We offer our services to the residential and commercial sector. You can count on us to remove asbestos safely and professionally.
