HydraClean is an Asbestos Abatement Firm, who can be recruited to ensure that all hazardous asbestos materials are removed safely and efficiently from your home or commercial building. Asbestos abatement services are one HydraClean’s specialties.
In order to ensure the building materials are asbestos free, our Asbestos Specialists remove a small sample and have it analyzed by an independent certified testing lab/facility. Removal of the suspect materials will not proceed until the presence of asbestos is confirmed or denied.
Asbestos was common in building materials prior to 1980, and because of this we test materials for the presence of asbestos if the structure was built before 1990. We always do this before removal procedures commence. Once removal procedures commence a containment barrier will be placed. Containment is often a temporary air tight barrier which is placed under negative air pressure; All air flows into the containment area through a true HEPA D.O.P tested negative air machine and is directed out of the building, making it impossible for any air borne contaminates to re-contaminate unaffected areas. Our containment barriers are always tested for proper operation before demolition begins.
Asbestos is a mineral mined from the earth and was used for hundreds of years in the construction of textiles and products. The medical community has recognized over the last 50 years how extremely harmful Asbestos is to human health. Asbestos breaks down into fine needle like fibre that can remain suspended in the air for hours and when inhaled are known to embedding in the respiratory system causing chronic health problems and even death.
Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease resulting from prolonged exposure to asbestos dust. The fibers gradually cause the lungs to become scarred and stiff, making breathing difficult.
Lung cancer May be caused by asbestos fibers in the lung. Although it is unknown exactly how asbestos causes lung cancer, research has shown that the combination of smoking tobacco and inhaling asbestos fibers greatly increases the risk of lung cancer.
Mesothelioma Is a rare but aggressive form of cancer affecting the lining of the lungs or the abdominal cavity. there is a confirmed link between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma.
Pleural thickening May develop after heavy asbestos exposure. The lining of the lung (pleura) thickens and swells, causing shortness of breath and discomfort in the chest.
Because of the extreme risk to human health, the safe removal of asbestos containing building materials should only be done by qualified professionals with the proper controls in place to ensure that all materials are removed and cleaned up safely without becoming airborne and not left to contaminate living space.
HYDRACLEAN Is a national leader in safe removal practices of asbestos containing materials. We performed thousands of asbestos abatements both small, large and enormous projects.
We adhere to the most stringent safety protocol during such projects as set out in the guidelines for the safe removal asbestos containing materials.
