Asbestos was frequently used in building materials and supplies for many decades. Asbestos contamination from construction and demolition projects has rapidly become a widespread form of soil contamination throughout Australia. Asbestos remediation involving buildings and other structures can be complicated, but since soil contamination commonly includes the presence of fibrous asbestos (loose asbestos) asbestos soil removal professionals need to exercise great care when it comes to safely purifying the contaminated soil. At Asbestos Removals Brisbane, we offer comprehensive services that start from assessing the soil for asbestos decontamination, to accurately removing the contaminated soil and then disposing it properly.

Asbestos decontamination

At Asbestos Removals Brisbane, we’re properly trained to handle any asbestos related activity. This means removing the asbestos, disposing of it, and clearing any potentially contaminated areas. There are strict government rules and regulations when it comes to removing asbestos and transporting it. However, collecting and disposing is only half the work – an asbestos contaminated soil removal professional must clear and sweep the area in case there are trace amounts of asbestos left behind. This is particularly common after demolition, or when residential homeowners notice a fibrous containing material in their garden.

These fibrous materials usually lodge themselves inside grass and dirt, which can make it particularly hard to remove. An asbestos remediation professional has the tools needed to accurately measure the level of asbestos in soil and perform asbestos decontamination. If the asbestos is fibrous, it’s extremely dangerous even in small amounts so it must be removed immediately. All tools and equipment used to extract soil must also be disposed of immediately to eliminate the chance of releasing airborne fibres. Contaminated soil must be deposited into a government approved waste facility and handled in a way that no dust is created.

Your asbestos remediation experts

Luckily, asbestos materials are not known to migrate far in soil, and usually find residence in the topsoil. If you stumble across foreign pieces of wall plastering or tiles in your garden, and are concerned it may contain asbestos, get in contact with Asbestos Removals Brisbane immediately for an assessment. Any sort of activity can cause the fibrous material to break down, which can release dangerous airborne particles. A soil test can determine if contamination is present, and a professional can then work out how extensively the asbestos has travelled in the soil and perform an asbestos soil remediation.
