Asbestos Removal in Springvale, VIC 3171
Asbestos once provided insulation for most buildings and homes due to its fireproof resilience and versatile nature. However, since its heyday, we have come to learn just how dangerous asbestos can be, as sicknesses like mesothelioma and asbestosis have become household names. Unfortunately, most buildings that were built before the 1990’s have had or still have asbestos present today. Asbestos, which is often disturbed during remodelling and renovation, requires licensed removal companies to safely mitigate the dangers it presents when present.
Asbestos was traditionally manufactured in two forms. The first form came as a wool-like material and is known as “friable” asbestos. Friable asbestos is soft, and crumbly, and requires a removal agent in possession of a Class A asbestos removal license. The opposing form of asbestos that was manufactured is known as “non-friable” and was manufactured in a solid or rigid state. This type of asbestos requires removal agents to have a Class B asbestos removal license.
