Need Asbestos Encapsulation in NSW? Encapsulation of Asbestos can be a safe and economical option. If you’d like to find out if your NSW property is suitable for Asbestos Encapsulation rather than Asbestos Removal then Book a Jim’s Asbestos Encapsulation Assessment now.
Preparation is critical to a smooth and safe process. We will identify elements such as access to your property, if power and water is available, etc.
The local Jim’s Asbestos Encapsulation NSW team are fully trained and understand the importance of getting a rapid result, to enable work to continue on schedule if possible; for the asbestos to be safely sealed where possible and removed if appropriate. We will provide you with a written recommendations report giving you options suitable for the location, degradation & ease of access to the asbestos materials, and appropriate for your budget and schedules.
Our Asbestos Encapsulation team are equipped with the right safety gear and professional tools to do the job thoroughly and safely. When we identify that Asbestos is present, it is sometimes an option for safety and economy, for some asbestos to be left in place, and instead conduct an asbestos encapsulation service. Our team will advise you beforehand if at all possible, however often it is not until the asbestos removal work has commenced that we can find the full extent of asbestos materials used in construction, with further testing often required.
Where Asbestos removal is necessary, our Jim’s Licensed & Accredited Team will always dispose of asbestos materials safely, as per Environment Protection Authority (EPA) guidelines.
We do not recommend that you attempt DIY Asbestos Encapsulation, unless you are fully compliant with the Safe Work Australia Asbestos Guidelines. Rest assured our NSW team are fully licensed and trained, and also fully insured. Do not risk the health of your loved ones, friends, family, neighbours or co-workers by using unlicensed providers.
After Asbestos has been thoroughly encapsulated (or removed) we recommend the following elements be addressed: (a) Asbestos Clearance Certificate; (b) Air monitoring; (c) Asbestos Register & Management.
