Bonded or Non-Friable Asbestos Removal
Bonded or non-friable asbestos material is the most common type of asbestos. Bonded asbestos means that when dry it may not be crumbled, pulverised, or reduced to powder by hand pressure. Examples of potential bonded asbestos including but are not limited to the following: 'super six' fencing, wall panelling, electrical metering boards, eaves, vinyl floor tiles, plaster patching compounds, etc.
This form of asbestos material is considered the least dangerous and is generally safe when undisturbed. However, if the material must be disturbed then it is recommended to outsource these works to a licenced asbestos removalist such as ANZ Enviro. Our licensed and experienced team will ensure the project is done safely whilst ensuring all financial and timeline targets are achieved.
Nestled between Christchurch and Dunedin, Timaru is the second largest city in Canterbury and the perfect half-way destination for roadside travelers.
This beachside city boasts several hotspots including many grand Edwardian and Victorian buildings dating back to the early 1900s. On the historical city walk, many of these architectural monuments have been redeveloped, upgraded, and repurposed for modern purposes.
These iconic buildings are surely picturesque and enjoyed by both locals and tourist alike. These beautiful buildings are prime examples of structural conservation and historical preservation in action.
As the Timaru community has grown, several of its iconic structures have proudly earned well-deserved heritage status. Saving and preserving historical structures to their original glory is a mixture of creativity for re-use, resourcefulness combined with specific industry knowledge for the dangers and risks that may lurk within.
As with many older buildings found throughout New Zealand, structures in Timaru often contain hazardous materials.
During construction (especially demolition, deconstruction and salvage works), these hazards can become intensified. As works begin, hazards including legacy asbestos and lead paint can be uncovered.
These materials were unfortunately often used during early construction works when safe alternatives were unavailable, and their presence may not be obvious. When left undisturbed, these materials may not be of concern however, when construction begins, these materials may pose a risk.
Legacy hazardous materials are an ongoing concern as debris can result in deadly damage if not removed properly. Widely used in both commercial and construction applications including textile products to everyday household products, asbestos is often seen on many construction sites even today.
For instance, exposure to asbestos can cause serious health concerns, some of which may be fatal. When asbestos is disturbed during a renovation, product deterioration or demolition project this is especially dangerous.
Strict regulations are in place for the identification, removal, and disposal of asbestos of any kind but often this is not enough to keep everyone safe. When asbestos is suspected in a demolition zone, a professional must be engaged to assist and minimize risk as asbestos cannot be identified by eye.
It is recommended to always be aware of the likely locations of hazardous materials and regulations governing hazardous remediation works.
The best and most effective way to maximize everyone’s safety and mitigate renovation challenges is to remain informed. Common locations hazardous materials can be found including but is not limited to asbestos-containing pipe or boiler insulation, switchboards, meter boards, fireproofing materials as well as roofing and flooring materials.
During the most recent earthquake that rocked Timaru, many older structures were damaged or destroyed, it is imperative to exercise caution during the cleanup process.
Natural disasters including floods, fires, severe winds, and earthquakes pose an additional threat to older homes and buildings.
For example, earthquakes can cause significant damage to buildings including disturbances to asbestos containing material (ACM) caused from substantial shaking. As the asbestos fibers are disturbed, otherwise sealed fibers can become released into the atmosphere and once airborne these fibers can be inhaled.
Asbestos exposure can cause four main diseases including fatal mesothelioma. Individuals should be advised to proceed with caution, engage professionals such as ANZ Enviro with proper protective gear and any lower risks as much as possible.
