Asbestos is a mineral that was used as a building material for many homes and businesses until the 1980s. In the mid to late 20th century, researchers proved definitively that asbestos was responsible for causing cancer and respiratory illness in certain people. However, asbestos is not always harmful. The substance is only dangerous when inhaled as fibres, so it was not removed from many homes or offices. When the substance is contained or secluded in such a way that it won't be disturbed and inhaled, it is not dangerous. That all falls apart when it comes to house demolition.
Demolishing a home obviously disturbs every part of it, which means that painted-over asbestos in the basement is suddenly going to be released into the air as fibres. This creates a danger for those working on the home, anyone who wants to build on the site later, and for the environment as a whole.
Abatement refers to the process of removing or stabilising asbestos. For a demolition, stabilisation is not possible, so the substance has to be removed. Due to its classification as a carcinogen (cancer-causing agent), not just anyone is capable of removing asbestos safely. At DC Earthworks, we have the experts and professionals necessary to do the dangerous work in a safe manner. Safety is our primary focus; that means the safety of you, our employees, and the environment
Asbestos Removal involves specialised skills and equipment. One has to use a HEPA vacuum and move very carefully from room to room. Typically, the specialists will use plastic sheeting to section off parts of the house and very carefully remove the offending substance. Once the fibres are bagged up, they are sent to a hazardous waste treatment facility where they are safely disposed of. Depending on the amount of the substance, this could take hours or even days. Either way, you cannot rush that sort of thing. However, we do work as quickly as safety will allow.
