How to Properly Handle Asbestos

Asbestos removal is not a job for amateurs. It requires professional help as it is very delicate and dangerous to the user. Professionally removing asbestos from your home is extremely important because you may have people living in your home at the time when the asbestos removal is being carried out. Professionals use special products and equipment to make sure that the removal is done properly and safely.

Important Documents

If asbestos removal is being carried out for commercial purposes, the company will usually have a written code of practice that contains all the precautions to be taken during asbestos removal and handling. The code of practice will state what asbestos materials that a company can dispose of, how much they are allowed to dispose of and the procedures that need to be followed while handling asbestos materials. The code of practice usually stipulates the type of asbestos materials that companies are allowed to dispose of. The asbestos removal company will usually use one of two types of disposal materials available to them.

If there are any asbestos materials on the premises the company that works with the owner or operator of the premises will need to obtain a minimal damage certificate for the asbestos removal process. This is because asbestos fibres can never be seen once they have been damaged. This means that if asbestos fibres are damaged they cannot be seen and the local health and safety authorities will not be notified of their presence. Once asbestos fibres are damaged they cannot be restored to the local health and safety authorities will need to be notified of the asbestos materials presence.

Common Questions

Does the asbestos removal company provide information about removal equipment? The best contractors will provide detailed information about their equipment including the asbestos furnace, as well as the trucks and machinery used. In addition, a good asbestos contractor should provide information about the safe handling, storage and disposal of asbestos wastes. In particular, asbestos waste should be stored securely and separately from asbestos products such as roof shingles, asbestos roof tiles and asbestos flashing. A good asbestos contractor will provide information about asbestos disposal and provide a detailed work plan for safe asbestos removal.

Will I be charged for recycling asbestos-containing materials? Not likely. Most cities and counties will not charge you for removing asbestos fibres once your project is complete. You may be charged for transportation of the asbestos waste, however, if you choose to haul asbestos-containing materials yourself, you will still need a permit from your local authorities.


When asbestos-containing materials are removed the company will need to make sure that they are transported in a good condition so that they can be disposed of properly. Many people do not understand that once the asbestos is disturbed even though the fibres are no longer a danger they can still pose a health hazard. As result companies that remove asbestos from a building will require a disposal container for the removal process. This container will be used to contain the asbestos fibres before they are removed.

Companies that remove asbestos materials will also remove asbestos-containing materials such as insulation and ceiling tiles. If asbestos was disturbed during the removal process the company will need to make sure that all possible asbestos fibres are contained in the container before they are removed. In some cases, asbestos fibres can be airborne during the removal process so it is important to make sure that asbestos materials are properly contained and disposed of. In some states, asbestos removal is required if asbestos materials are found in a building or a facility so these regulations must be followed. If asbestos materials are not properly disposed of asbestos can be released into the air which can pose a serious health risk to individuals who are exposed to it.

Commercial Demolition Contractors

When it comes to commercial demolition and construction there are so many companies out there. But what makes a great commercial demolition contractor?

Cost and Extra Services

Demolition cost is one factor that you must consider when choosing commercial demolition contractors. They will charge you for the job. If you are only planning on tearing down a commercial building then you need to know costs per square foot. The price of each square foot depends on a lot of things. They may have to use certain products or use certain methods that will lower the price per square foot.

Another factor to consider includes the removal of asbestos and any associated removal materials such as asbestos surveying, removal equipment, protective clothing, masks, gloves, respirators, and goggles. Asbestos removal can be very hazardous and should only be handled by licensed asbestos abatement specialists. The average commercial demolition cost will include removal of asbestos using high-tech equipment, including debris disposal, asbestos abatement and removal materials used. Some commercial demolition companies will not use any asbestos materials at all.

Hiring a Contractor

You need to make sure you find the right demolition contractor for your project. Not only will you be risking a great deal of money if you hire the wrong company, but you will also not have the peace of mind that you thought you would have if you choose a better commercial demolition contractor. Some companies will not do residential projects, such as apartment complexes and office buildings, so make sure you find out their specialization before hiring them to take care of your project.

Make sure to ask for references and check them out carefully. You can contact past clients to see if they were satisfied with the services of the particular demolition contractor you are considering. There are many websites where past clients’ reviews are available. Once you have selected two or three companies, make sure to meet with them and see how they do business.

Your selected company should perform a thorough pre-construction inspection. This will help ensure that they are capable of completing the job on time without any problems. It is always a good idea to verify that they have the proper training and that they are licensed and insured. It will also be prudent to verify that they are in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Some companies have a great track record when it comes to construction, but if they have past issues such as complaints from customers, it would be wise to steer clear of those companies. A good commercial demolition contractor should have no complaints against them.

What to Expect

Commercial demolition services will give you a schedule detailing all of the various phases of the commercial site preparation work. Make sure that this schedule includes all phases of the process so that you will be aware of when certain tasks need to be completed. This is particularly important if you are having an asbestos removal project. It will also help if you know exactly what the purpose of each phase of the demolition services will be. For example, if you are having a steel building demolition process, you want to know what materials will be used and the exact date that the demolition services will arrive at your commercial site.

Commercial demolition contractors can be a real lifesaver for companies that are undergoing major renovations or are in danger of having a major renovation project interrupted. If you are not comfortable with the demolition contractors that are hired for your project, you may wish to contact another commercial contractor who is experienced in demolitions. There is no reason why you shouldn’t ask for estimates from more than one demolition contractor before making your decision. It may just be a small difference in price between one demolition contractor offering a lower price than another.
