Asbestos Ceiling and Garage Roof Removal Services
As well as asbestos floor tile removal, we also offer asbestos ceiling removal, asbestos garage roof removal and corrugated asbestos roof removal. Before the use of asbestos in construction was banned in 1999, it was used for its properties like insulation and durability in almost every building. However, medical evidence listed that, upon inhalation, this naturally occurring fibrous mineral can potentially cause serious health conditions like asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. It still kills around 5000 workers annually and almost two dozen tradespeople die every week due to previous exposure. Although you may not know whether you have been exposed to asbestos fibres, the effects can have a latency period of between 20 to 40 years.
Although asbestos roofing can remain safe, once the sheeting and ACMs begin to degrade, this can cause the material to break down and leave asbestos fibres exposed. This can make the material lose its structural matrix which in turn leads to leaks and further degradation of the material which can become evident with moss and lichen growth. This is why we recommend that asbestos garage roof removal needs to be done by professionals. Corrugated asbestos cement sheets (CACS) are one of the most common ACMs that are low-risk. Before the 1990s, barns and industrial buildings along with sheds and garages in residential properties would use CACS, in addition to farmers using CACS for preventing floods and blocking soil. However, if corrugated asbestos roof removal is improperly done, the CACS can release asbestos fibres, cause air pollution, contaminate the ground and possibly affect public health. With the amount of pollution currently around, it is important to protect our environment and each other and carefully handle ACMs like those found in ceilings and garage roofs. All suspected materials should be treated as ACMs until proven otherwise.
Therefore, you can trust our trained contractors to safely execute asbestos garage roof removal, corrugated asbestos roof removal, and asbestos ceiling removal, alongside asbestos floor tile removal, so that you don’t have to worry about the spaces within which you live. Our fully trained asbestos operatives will ensure that all ACMs are properly assessed and removed.
