Revolve Asbestos Solutions offers specialised services for commercial buildings in New Zealand, particularly those with asbestos cladding, a common feature in early constructions using concrete-type weatherboards. Asbestos cladding, the external siding of a structure, poses significant health risks. Here's our commercial-focused asbestos cladding removal process:
- Assessment: A critical initial step involves assessing the asbestos cladding's extent and condition. This evaluation guides the selection of suitable removal techniques and safety measures.
- Asbestos Removal Plan: Our licensed professionals develop a comprehensive plan detailing the removal procedures. This plan encompasses containment methods, protective gear, waste disposal, and decontamination protocols.
- Containment: To prevent asbestos fibre dispersion, the area is sealed with barriers like plastic sheeting, ensuring containment and environmental safety.
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Our team employs PPE, including disposable coveralls, high-efficiency respirators, gloves, and shoe covers, minimising asbestos fibre exposure.
- Wetting and Removal: We dampen the cladding before removal to reduce airborne contamination. The cladding is carefully dismantled in segments, minimising material disturbance.
- Waste Disposal: All materials are treated as hazardous waste, securely packed, appropriately labelled, and transported to a certified disposal facility for safe disposal.
- Decontamination: Post-removal, workers and tools undergo extensive decontamination to eliminate residual asbestos fibres. This includes using HEPA-filtered vacuums and adhering to stringent cleaning protocols.
- Air Monitoring: Throughout and after the removal, air quality is monitored to ensure asbestos fibre levels are within safe thresholds, confirming the effectiveness of our containment strategies and the safety of the work environment.
