Have a Discussion With Your Family

The first thing you need to do is to have a discussion with the ones involved in this entire process – your family.

Make sure you remove your family quickly from the risk to secure them. But before you do, talk to them and make them understand that you’ll have to move to another location temporarily until the threat inside your house is completely gone.


Principal Considerations

An asbestos removal features many requirements that you need to submit before you’re given the green light to perform asbestos removal. Here are the things that you need to consider in preparing for The-MPA-Group asbestos removal Adelaide:


  • Permits

If the work requires renovation, a permit from the city council may be required. This will be an issue that you’ll discuss with the building inspector first.

  • Removal

Are there any issues in terms of WorkSafe or are permits required for transport?

  • Disposal

Where will the asbestos be disposed and will there be permits required for this? 

  • Licensing

The company you hire should have a license to remove asbestos. Without permission, the work may be considered illegal.


Preparing for Asbestos Removal

This one is a critical step in the safe removal of asbestos from your home. It should include:

  • Plastic Sheeting

Cover your household items that are not removed from the house with plastic sheeting. This will involve sealing off doorways to keep asbestos confined inside the area of removal.

  • Wet Asbestos Surfaces

This will be used to reduce the risk of dust particles in the air.

  •  Nail and fastener removal

Remove fasteners and nails with care to ensure that asbestos disturbance is minimised.
