Asbestos Removal Disposal

Introduction to Asbestos Removal Disposal

Once asbestos has been removed satisfactorily from the residential area, the next challenge is to dispose of it properly.  Due to the hazardous nature of asbestos, strict legal restrictions apply on its movement and disposal.  The basic problem behind all this is that asbestos turns extremely poisonous when it has been troubled.  There are basically four methods for asbestos disposal.

Dry Stripping:

This method of asbestos removal disposal involves the simple removal of asbestos waste without involving any moisture.  This might be the simplest of all methods but it is not the most recommended method.  The reason is that with dry stripping a large quantity of dust is also produced.  This means that the asbestos fibres that are released during this process of asbestos removal disposal are very high.  This increases chances of infection and therefore is not liked very much as a removal method.

High Pressured Water Method:

This method of asbestos removal disposal is very popular.  In this method we use a high pressure hose of water.  This method involves the removal of asbestos by force and is mostly used in industrial areas to remove asbestos from places in which it is difficult to reach.

Controlled Damp Stripping:

This method of asbestos removal disposal involves the use of the injection of hot water into asbestos by using needs that are specially made for this task.  This results in the weighing down of the asbestos material.  This naturally controls the asbestos dust during its removal.

Hot Stripping:

This method of asbestos removal disposal uses a ventilation system with hot air.  The technique used in this case is that hot air is blown onto asbestos fibres.  The residues of asbestos removal are then pushed into a very powerful ventilation system.  This does not allow for any floating fibres of asbestos and is a more sophisticated method of asbestos removal disposal and also requires most expertise.


All these four methods that are described above are effective for asbestos removal disposal.  However, it is not advised to attempt any of these methods without technical expertise, training and professional help.  Only an asbestos removal disposal professional has the knowledge and expertise to determine the best method that will be suitable for the disposal of asbestos in your home or building.  Another thing that should be given weight is that you should not just start removing asbestos from your home or building without any planning.  

First you need to determine that asbestos is a real problem for your home or building.  If that is not the case then asbestos removal and disposal is not required.  The primary thing that should be kept in mind is that asbestos is too insecure when it has been broken and its fibres are in the air.  Once asbestos fibres are in the air, only then should you remove asbestos with professional help.  Another important area of asbestos removal disposal is proper transportation so that it does not endanger the general public while you are transporting it to a safe place.
