Reasons why you require a professional removalist in Sydney

ACMs were mainly classified into two categories, which are friable (Class A) and non-friable (Class B). Friable ACMs tend to release a high percentage of fibres into the surrounding environment when they are disturbed. Thus, they tend to pose a greater risk to human’s health. Numerous building materials that are used at homes such as floor covers, pipe insulator and fire retardants usually contain the friable type.

Non-friable ACMs have a firmer and solid characteristic compared to the friable one, since the fibres are bound in the material’s matrix. They are less unlikely to cause health-related problems when left undisturbed. Cement products, paints, and floor covering made from vinyl are the examples of materials that often contain non-friable fibre. These materials usually contain fibres up to 15 per cent along with the bonding components.

Both friable and non-friable materials need to be handled and removed carefully. There are many reasons why you need to seek help from a professional removalist to perform asbestos removal Sydney process, such as:

It is difficult to determine whether a material in your house contains fibres or not

You cannot simply tell if a material contains fibres by only looking at it, so you must treat the doubtful material as if it contains dangerous and carcinogenic substances. As stated in NSW.gov.au, ACMs can commonly be found in corrugated roofing, thermal insulator, linoleum and vinyl flooring, electricity boxes, wiring insulation, stoves, old domestic heater, fibro sheet fencing, and hot-water systems.

These following products may also contain fibres such as cement, decorative coatings, Fibrolite (1972-1982), Durock (up to 1974), coverline profiled sheets (1972-1982), hardiflex (1982), new hardiflex (1982), glamortex, and whisper. A thorough inspection by a microscopic analysis is needed to determine whether these products contain fibre or not.

A DIY repair work can cause the release of dangerous fibres

60,5% of do-it-yourself renovators reported being exposed to dangerous substances during home renovations. Therefore, before carrying out any DIY renovations, it is important to know which materials might contain fibre so that you can take the proper precautions when renovating or making repairs. In Sydney, if your house was built before 1987, there is a good chance that it contains fibrous material.

When ACMs are disturbed, they can release thin fibres into the air. These fibres are invisible and can float in the air for a long time; we might inhale them without even realising it. These properties make these fibres as a potential threat to our health.

The health effects of inhaling them may not appear immediately and take quite a while to be apparent. But once an fibre-related disease is diagnosed, it’s often too late to treat it. This is why it is important to take preventive actions to overcome this problem.

A license is needed to remove ACMs

A person who has a license to conduct the handling and removal process of ACMs, refer as ACMs removalist, might carry out removal work depends on the type of license that they hold. Only experts that hold a class-A license are allowed to handle and remove the friable type. Removalists that have B class license are allowed to remove bonded ACMs up to 10 m2 of the total area.
