It is a dangerous job
Asbestos air sampling and removal is a highly dangerous job that takes professional training and experience to safely conduct. Think about it: would you get up on your second story roof to replace some broken tiles if you didn’t have the necessary training and experience?
The same goes for this vital-yet-dangerous work. This is a harmful mineral that when agitated can easily enter the air and, consequently, the tester’s lungs. This, consequently, can cause myriad health problems including lung cancer. Why anyone without the necessary training, equipment and experience would want to risk this is anyone’s guess, but we strongly advise against it.
Instead, the pros have years of training, skill and experience in their repertoires and will use that to provide the safest service available. They are fully-equipped with state of the art technology that ensures yours and their safety at all times. Whether it be testing or removal this is a highly dangerous job that should be left to the pros.
The pros provide the peace of mind
When a novice attempts asbestos testing or removal they can never be sure if they did the job properly. Therefore, the last thing you want is a lingering fear that you either didn’t properly detect the mineral’s presence or that you failed to remove it properly. Either case is dangerous because you might start renovating the property with agitated asbestos floating around the property.
The experts are trained and equipped to get the job done properly with every service. They know exactly what they are doing when it comes to this imperative process and you can have the peace of mind that they will ensure your property is safe from the mineral. They will ensure that your property either doesn’t contain it or, if it does contain it, they will safely and effectively remove it so that you can conduct any building or renovation without contamination fears.
They have the proper equipment for the job
Many people think they can just pick up a few things from bunnings and commence testing. It doesn’t work this way if you want to do the job safely and effectively. Instead, you need high-quality PPE and testing equipment that provides the most efficient detection. It is strongly advised that individuals don’t just throw on some PPE and attempt solo testing – you need the experts with the best technology to ensure that it is done properly.
So, as you can see, the last thing you should do is attempt this job yourself. It can be an unforgiving experiment to attempt to locate and remove the mineral and this is why the experts exist to ensure it is done safely. Don’t risk agitating this unwanted substance in a way that could have it floating around your house without you knowing – call the pros to provide that all-important peace of mind!
