Safe your ground!

An area, where an older building was renovated or demolished, has an additional risks of contaminated ground. It is highly possible that when the building was taken down, asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were not disposed of correctly.

The ACMs might have been buried intact, mixed with other wastes or even imported to another site as a recycled product or ground fill materials. The asbestos material should not be disturbed where non-friable or friable asbestos is present in the ground (greater than 0.5 meters below the soil surface),unless it is for the purpose of site remediation, redevelopment or site management.

Raise your awareness and be aware! Product such as fibrous roofing, floor tiles and fencing may contaminate your backyard or garden.

The residence in the contaminated area might be affected by the hazardous airborne fibre. It’s reported that a prolonged exposure to airborne fibrous materials may trigger the development of numerous aggressive diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancers. It’s a must to protect the people  around the contaminated area from the detrimental effects of airborne fibres by implementing correct control measures within the building.

 

DIY attempts of removing ACMs at your home

The most common form of ACM found in homes is “fibro” asbestos cement sheets or pipes. You can actually do the removal process by yourself. As long as the fibro is in a small amount, you are able to remove it yourself, but still you have to follow the requirements and wear appropriate equipment.

If you are not comfortable with doing the work yourself and unsure of the appropriate safe work procedures, then it is advised to hire a licensed asbestos removalist. Moreover, if you have more than 10 square meters of fibro material, you should hire a licensed removalist.

As we already know that the danger from asbestos arises if elevated levels of dust are generated and the dusts are breathed in. So, you can make the fibro materials keep being dampen when you are cleaning up and minimize further break-up of the fibro sheets. Visible pieces of fibro should be removed by hands, not without power tools.  Then you need to place them into sealed bags.
