Asbestos Garage Removal

If you’d like to talk to us about a project, or anything else, we’d love to hear from you.


Asbestos is a mineral that was used as an insulation & fire retardant material in many buildings, including garage roofs and walls.  It is still possible to find it on the roof & walls of your garage.  Asbestos may look like ordinary panels or sheets, but it can cause many serious health issues if disturbed or damaged.  If you suspect that your garage roof or walls contains asbestos, we strongly recommend you call or email our office for professional free advice. 


Where will I find asbestos?

Asbestos is a very common substance that can be found in many places.  It’s often found in homes, schools, office buildings and factories.  Many public buildings such as libraries, government offices and hospitals have asbestos in their structures, but you can also find asbestos in garage roofs too. The first step in removing asbestos from yourpremises is firstly to identify the type by sampling and viewing under microscope. Once identified the correct procedures and processes can then be implemented to execute the removals.



Is asbestos dangerous?

Asbestos is a dangerous carcinogen, meaning it can cause cancer.  Asbestos exposure has been shown to lead to lung cancer, mesothelioma and other cancers.  This is because asbestos fibres are too big to be filtered out by thebody's natural defense systems instead the fibres settle in the lungs and remain there for years.  It's important that you find out if your garage contains asbestos before having it removed. If asbestos has not been securely removed with the right equipment then you could develop health problems like those listed above later on down the road so be safe and call an expert.

In addition to asbestos being dangerous in its own right (if not handled properly), it is especially dangerous if found in a workplace setting where workers could be exposed to large quantities of dust.  This dust could then enter theirlungs through inhalation or mucous membranes such as eyes or nose after touching contaminated surfaces without the use of proper protective gear.

Employers would be required to hire licensed/trained contractors who specialize in removing such substances safelyso as not to affect employees' well-being negatively during their regular shifts or work hours where they spend time performing tasks where these potentially harmful substances exist.



What are the symptoms of asbestos exposure? 

Asbestos exposure can lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma.  Asbestos exposure can cause asbestosis, pleuralplaques and pleural thickening. Asbestos exposure can also cause gastrointestinal effects such as ulcerative colitis.

It is important to note that asbestos fibres are so small that they are not visible to the naked eye; therefore, it is difficult for an untrained person to identify them on their own.
