We Do More Than Just Residential Asbestos Removal
January 26, 2021
There are many commercial and industrial buildings throughout the Waikato and Auckland regions that contain asbestos. As such, the demand for asbestos removal services in these areas is substantial and we are the first point of contact to ensure the process is handled efficiently and safely. We’ll provide practical advice and solutions for your asbestos removal project and engage the services of experienced licenced supervisors from selected companies to manage the work.
In retrospect, it is no surprise that asbestos was used so widely throughout our commercial and industrial buildings. Back in the day, when the dangers of asbestos were not as widely known as they are today, the material was seen as ideal for larger buildings like factories and warehouses. It was a relatively cheap material, so it was an affordable option for big structures. Plus, as a non-combustible and heat-resistant material it was widely used in industrial buildings where the risk of fire was a constant one.
This is why many of today’s commercial and industrial buildings contain a lot of asbestos, and in a wide variety of applications. As an example, a factory might have corrugated roof sheeting (e.g. Super Six), gutters, moulding, wall sheeting, vent pipes and capping, compressed sheet flooring, window mouldings and louvre blades, floor tiles, roof ventilators and so much more all containing asbestos!
The good news is that, in the majority of cases, asbestos does not pose a major risk. As long as it is in good condition, intact and left undisturbed, asbestos shouldn’t pose too much of a problem. A lot of hysteria is whipped up about the dangers of asbestos. While it is certainly nasty stuff and a major health hazard in some circumstances, we always urge our clients to take a deep breath and not panic when they realise asbestos is present. But there might be a time when that asbestos does indeed pose a risk - for example, if it is disturbed in anyway and the fibres enter the atmosphere. That’s when you should do the right thing and contact us.
Our asbestos removal services in Waikato and Auckland will ensure that any asbestos issue at your commercial or industrial building (as well as your home) is resolved quickly and safely. Even if you’re not sure that there is an issue at all, it will give you peace of mind if you get in touch with us and we’ll check any potential dangers. It might be a case that no removal is required - but it is always better to be safe than sorry!
