Need Asbestos Removed in Torres Strait? Has your Torres Strait property been tested for Asbestos and now you need to book in an Asbestos removal service?
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.
As professional asbestos removalists, we know the importance of organisation and awareness of the surroundings. Before starting any work, we ensure your Torres Strait neighbours are formally informed of the process in writing, allowing them to take the recommended actions such as sealing off doors and windows. All relevant floors with be covered with heavy duty plastic sheeting, and residents, visitors and even pets are not permitted access during the asbestos removal process.
Your Jim’s Asbestos Removal team are fully trained and understand how to seal internal doors, and the importance of leaving external doors and windows open in order to promote ventilation. Our team are equipped with the right safety gear and professional tools to do the job thoroughly and safely.
Note however, that in some cases, it might be safer and more economical 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 work has commenced that we can find the full extent of asbestos materials used in construction.
Our Jim’s Licensed Asbestos Removal Team will always dispose of asbestos materials safely, as per Environment Protection Authority (EPA) guidelines.
We do not recommend that you attempt DIY Asbestos Removal, unless you are fully compliant with the Safe Work Australia Asbestos Guidelines. Rest assured our Torres Strait 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 removed or encapsulated we recommend the following elements be addressed: (a) Asbestos Clearance Certificate; (b) Air monitoring; (c) Asbestos Register & Management.
