Our Asbestos Remediation Process

  1. Initial Consultation and Assessment

Our process begins with a thorough consultation to understand your specific needs and concerns. We conduct a detailed site assessment to identify potential asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). This involves visual inspections and, if necessary, sampling and laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of asbestos.

  1. Customised Remediation Plan

Based on the assessment results, we develop a customised remediation plan tailored to your facility’s requirements. This plan outlines the scope of work, safety measures, timeline, and cost estimates. We ensure clear communication throughout the planning stage to address any questions or concerns you may have.

  1. Containment and Preparation

Before starting the abatement process, we set up containment areas to prevent asbestos fibres from spreading to other parts of the facility. This involves sealing off the work area with plastic sheeting, setting up negative air pressure systems, and decontamination units to ensure a controlled environment.

  1. Safe Removal and Abatement

Our skilled technicians then proceed with the careful removal of asbestos materials. We use specialised tools and techniques to minimise fibre release, such as wet methods and HEPA-filtered vacuums. All ACMs are securely bagged and labelled for disposal.

  1. Final Cleanup and Verification

After the removal, we conduct a meticulous cleanup of the work area, ensuring that no asbestos residues remain. An independent third-party inspection may be arranged to verify the area’s safety and clearance. We provide detailed documentation and reports for your records.

  1. Proper Disposal

The removed asbestos materials are transported to a licensed disposal facility. We strictly follow all regulatory requirements for transporting and disposing of hazardous waste to minimize environmental impact.
