The cost of removing asbestos with a contractor can be expensive, but the cost of not addressing the issue properly is always much greater. With the stringent legal requirements in Ireland and the immense health threat associated with asbestos exposure, following appropriate protocol is necessary. When you see obvious danger, it’s important to be sure that the handling process is done by an accredited to ISO 17020 and ISO 17025 asbestos removal contractor in Dublin.
If you know that there are asbestos containing materials (ACM) in your facility, take the necessary measures to lessen the chance of exposure. If the materials are safely located and they are not in danger of being damaged, then closing off the area may be the best option. Old tile floors, plumbing, and heater ducting can be very difficult areas in particular to deal with, many times requiring far more intricate solutions. There are ways to handle the situation on your own, if it is not too serious.
For example, if the flooring is still intact, laying down new flooring over the current might be the best solution. Ducting may require even more sensitive dealings, though, with a greater risk of airborne fibres. Many houses may also still have exterior siding with ACM’s and require careful consideration. If the shingles become cracked or broken, they can also become a serious problem and quite hazardous.
