While abatement and remediation may sound identical, there is a distinction. When it comes to removing asbestos from homes, there are
two distinct methods, and one may be more appropriate for your structure than the other.
What is Asbestos Elimination?
Abatement means removing the source of the problem from the structure or enclosing it in order to eliminate any risk or harm to others.
We’ll use abatement methods to ensure that everyone is safe and out of the area before we begin work.
The asbestos contractor will arrive prepared with a plan and will discuss the steps for treating the area, including preparation and clean-
up. Local, state, and federal legislation, as well as safety regulations, will be highlighted in the strategy. Once the plan has been
developed and distributed, the area is designated with hazard alerts and deserted.
Our approach to asbestos abatement is straightforward and closely mirrors the remediation procedure.

Polyethylene sheets should be hung and secured with polyethylene tape.
Contaminated goods are removed and sealed securely with tape in plastic trash bags.
The remaining surface will need to be cleaned with a moist cloth and, if necessary, a HEPA vacuum.
What Is the Difference Between Asbestos Removal and Remediation?
When it comes to asbestos removal, you’re essentially addressing the underlying issue, ensuring that it never occurs again. Additionally,
remediation includes an initial abatement time. The removal process will include a strategy, which is normally developed before beginning
work. We’ll share a written report that details the magnitude of the problem, including remarks about the contamination area, removal
recommendations, and materials. Additionally, we’ll discuss the testing procedures that must be followed.
The asbestos removal method is straightforward, consisting of four steps that your asbestos removal firm will follow:
HVAC units are shut off and vents are blocked to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers.
A plastic sheet is used to enclose the work space.
The workstation will be cleaned using HEPA vacuums and wet cleanup tools.
Materials taken from the site shall be placed in containers that are clearly labelled and leak-proof.
Once the asbestos has been removed from your home or commercial structure, we will safely dispose of the dangerous materials in
accordance with state and federal regulations. Our crew will handle all removal and disposal processes, ensuring the safety of you and
your loved ones.
Which Method Is Most Appropriate For My Building?
There is no one method for removing asbestos fibres that is superior to another; it all depends on the level of exposure and the nature of
the disease. While abatement is normally effective in treating asbestos, certain buildings and residents will choose remediation.
We do not recommend removing harmful fibres yourself; it is preferable to employ a professional team to remove poisonous fibres from
your house or business. We’ll conduct proper testing for harmful materials, adhere to all applicable regulations and processes, and utilise
the appropriate equipment to ensure everyone’s safety. Contact us today to learn more about asbestos abatement and treatment.
