Health Risks During Asbestos Removal and Clearance

Posted by CVE Corp. on Jan 28, 2019 11:40:00 PM

Due to the fact that the fibers of asbestos are extremely minute – approximately 20 microns in diameter – exposure to asbestos is highly dangerous. When these fibers are inhaled, there can be a lot of damage to the lungs and the abdominal lining. They can accumulate inside the body, and result in inflammation and scarring, which ultimately leads to severe diseases like lung cancer. This is why it is extremely important to contact trained and licensed contractors for asbestos removal San Diego in case this harmful material has been detected on your property.

What to Expect During the Process of Asbestos Removal

To “seal” a room, a 3-stage decontamination chamber is established using negative air machines, tape, heavy plastic sheeting and in some cases, poles, and ducting when needed. Afterwards, the personnel of the company will place asbestos danger signs on the doorway to prevent people from entering the house. They will wear disposable respirators, suits, and gloves while they are in the process of removing asbestos.

Next, the team that is removing asbestos will install two gigantic filters and a negative air machines outside the windows of the room. These filters and air machine help in creating negative air pressure so that asbestos fibers do not escape to the other rooms in the property. The team then begins the process of removing the building material containing asbestos. They tape off the edge of any damaged material that contains asbestos so that the release of asbestos fiber is prevented.

After they have completed these tasks, the asbestos removal team will then begin the process of vacuuming the debris from the floor and disposing it in a plastic bag that is tightly sealed using a special vacuum with hepa filters. All the material, debris, and clothing that have been contaminated are taken back, and dumped into a securely sealed dumpster, which will be properly disposed of according to the regulations of the city or state.

This process is called encapsulation using a special liquid glue called encapsulate. Once our work is done, the testing company returns for clearance in the air and the area.
