Paper Underlay Removal
Underlay paper is commonly used in flooring for multiple purposes. It can help to prevent squeaky floors, add insulation, minimise dust, and it helps to make installation easier.
Unfortunately, asbestos felt was commonly used as an underlayment in flooring and roofing in older homes. If your home was built, or your carpet installed, before 1980, then there is a chance that you might have asbestos containing materials in your flooring.
If you’re looking to redo your flooring in an older home, you may require the service of a professional asbestos removalist to ensure the project is carried out safely. Get in touch to learn more about whether you might need paper underlay removal, and how we can help.
Plaster Insulation Removal
Plaster insulation is a popular modern product. Most plasterers use a powder product, mix it into a paste, and apply it onto walls. The result is a smooth, even base for painting over, and some additional insulating properties.
Like so many construction materials of the twentieth century, asbestos often used in plaster thanks to its added insulating properties. As an extra bonus, asbestos’ fire resistance added this benefit throughout the property as well.
Homes built from the 1920s to the 1970s may have asbestos in their walls, especially if your older home has ‘fire rated’ walls.
If in doubt, get asbestos testing for your property. This is especially important if you are planning renovations or a demolition to ensure your safety, and the safety of those working on the property.
Asbestos Contaminated Dust Removal
Asbestos Contaminated Dust (ACD) is a dangerous substance that typically comes from the break-down of other asbestos-containing materials. For example, you might have asbestos contained in your ceiling or wall, but a major collision might cause dust and debris to come loose from that wall or ceiling. Or, these areas of your property might simply break down over time.
The result is asbestos-contaminated dust, which is highly dangerous as it is so easy to breathe in. Therefore, only a professional asbestos removalist with a Class A certification is legally allowed to manage this product.
Asbestos Rope Removal
Asbestos rope was an extremely useful product for decades. It was made of braided asbestos fibres and used in a wide variety of applications, including in pumps, power outlets, seals, and as packing or padding materials around pipes. It had excellent thermal conductivity properties, as well as fire and heat resistance.
As such, many homes still contain asbestos ropes throughout the property. You might find it in older oven doors or fireplaces, but it also often tucked away and difficult to find unless you know where to look.
PRO Environmental Services can safely remove asbestos rope from throughout your property, safeguarding the health and wellbeing of your family, and of any builders or contractors who work on your property as well.
Asbestos Spray Coating Removal
Asbestos spray coating was traditionally used in fire protection and sound proofing. It was used in car parks on the ceilings and beams where there is a hotel or apartments above.
If you notice that the spray coating is deteriorating, then it has likely become a serious health risk, and it is vital that you get it under control and managed properly. This type of asbestos has a very high level of asbestos content and can, unfortunately, be easily damaged. For this reason, asbestos spray coating MUST be removed by a licensed asbestos removalist, such as PRO Environmental Services.
Before we carry out any licensed asbestos removal works, we fully test the site to ensure we’re using the correct equipment and workwear for everyone’s safety.
If your project is on a tight deadline, our 24/7 emergency asbestos call out option can help to manage your asbestos quickly and effectively for minimal project delays. See our testimonial page for a few examples of when we have been able to help keep projects on track.
