Inspect your site now!

If you own an older building that was renovated or demolished, then your bakcyard or garden may have contaminated soil. It is highly possibly that during the  renovation or demolition project, ACMs were not disposed of correctly. The fibrous materials might have been buried intact, mixed with other wastes or even imported to another land as a ground fill materials or recycled products.

Non-friable or Friable materials are present in ground at depth (greater than 0.5 meters below the ground surface), unless it is for the site remediation, redevelopment or site management purposes.

Be aware! Your building products may contaminate your yard. Fibrous roofing, floor tiles and tiles are some products that may contain ACMs.

Why you need a site inspection:

  • People who reside in a contaminated area might be affected by hazardous airborne fibres.
  • A prolonged exposure to fibrous materials may trigger the development of numerous aggressive diseases such as lung cancers and mesothelioma.
  • Implementing correct control measures is a wise way to protect people from potential health hazards.

 

Removing contaminated soils safely

Cement sheets or pipes are the most common form of asbestos materials that can be found in your home. Those materials are often called fibro. The danger from fibro products arises when fibres are generated and breathed in. This is why you need to keep the fibro materials wet when you are cleaning up. You also need to be careful to minimize further damages of the fibro sheets or other activities that can generate fibres.

Removal requirements for fibro products:

  • If the fibro materials around your house are not more that 10 square meters, then you can do the removal process by yourself.
  • But, if the materials are larger than 10 square meters, then you should hire licensed removalist to do the job.

Keep in mind: DIY attempts can be dangerous! You must follow certain requirements, use proper tools, and wear appropriate equipment for the removal process. You need to consult a professional first. It is not an easy procedure to do. If you are unsure on how to do the work safely, then you must hire a licensed asbestos removalist.
