1. Inspection & Testing
One of our specialists will inspect the house or building to assess the severity of the asbestos contamination and the affected areas. His expertise in identifying the presence of asbestos in Canberra houses built before the asbestos ban will allow us to minimise the amount of damage by determining the exact areas that need to be dismantled.
If the inspector finds that the asbestos is still in relatively good condition, he may recommend encapsulation instead of removal. The asbestos-containing material will then be coated with a special adhesive that will prevent it from deteriorating and releasing the dangerous asbestos fibers into the air.
Once the specialist has finished inspecting the place and recommended that the asbestos be removed as the only safe option for the health of the residents, he will require everyone to vacate the premises and our safety protocols will be put in place.
The AES team will complete the procedure, carefully isolating the area they are working on in order to eliminate the risk of toxic fibers getting out.
Once the asbestos-containing materials are taken out, they will be placed in special containers and sent to the proper disposal facilities.
AES takes great care to ensure the safe disposal of the removed materials, so they will not become a risk to the people and the environment.
4. Final Inspection
The inspectors will return to check that the asbestos is no longer present. The house will be issued a clean bill of health and it will be safe for people to move back inside.
