Asbestos Abatement >> Removing Friable Asbestos

Asbestos, over the years can be made much more friable, meaning that it can easily be crushed to the point that the particles will become airborne making it more dangerous because it can be easier to ingest or inhale. This condition of the asbestos will lead to the possibility of a person developing asbestosis and mesothelioma. The utmost safety procedures must be taken when performing Removing Friable Asbestos in your home or business.

  1. Always wear the best protective gear available like, disposable protective suits that cover the entire body they're very inexpensive and well worth the investment when it comes to your health. Good quality boot covers and disposable gloves that could be put in a sealable bag and thrown away after your Removing Friable Asbestos is completed. Make sure to wear a good quality breathing respirator and eye protection this makes your cleanup job so much safer and simpler.
  2. Have an area that can be designated for the different stages of the Removing Friable Asbestos. Use heavy plastic sheeting, to create an air proof barrier that the asbestos fibers cannot pass through. This will prevent any asbestos from escaping the contaminated area and making its way into the treated location. Take your plastic and cover the floor as well, you want to form an almost surgically clean area, taking no chances of any of the asbestos to escape.
  3. Taking a water hose, you want to wet all of the material that contains asbestos. Asbestos is the most dangerous when the friable particles become airborne making it possible for someone to inhale it and ingest it without their knowing. These particles are microscopic, they cannot be seen by the naked eye, but by thoroughly saturated the asbestos material it will make the Removing Friable Asbestos much safer.
  4. Manufacturers used asbestos in ceiling tiles, floor tiles, and around pipes for insulation, all of this must be removed. Using the most care to disassemble the materials will make a safer environment, trying not to disturb the friable asbestos as part of your Removing Friable Asbestos. Using the least aggressive approach possible will reduce or eliminate the likelihood of stirring up any asbestos particles.
  5. Collect all of the friable asbestos in sealable waste bags and contact a waste removal company that will deal with the safe handling and disposal of your Removing Friable Asbestos. Your normal garbage collector will not dispose of the asbestos properly and probably wouldn't even know it was there. And by all means, do not attempt to have the asbestos taken away without the garbage collector knowing of its danger.
  6. Thoroughly saturate the contaminated area one more time as a final cleanup of your Removing Friable Asbestos. Once the area has had all of the asbestos containing material taken from it, dampen the area once more sweeping up any last material and allow the area to air dry before beginning the remodeling project. Walk onto the plastic sheeting and remove your disposable protective gear, discarding everything properly.
