Asbestos Removal & Disposal

Asbestos can be divided into two basic categories, friable and non-friable.

Friable asbestos are materials containing high percentage of asbestos fibres that will crumble into powder when pressure is applied. This form of asbestos can easily become airborne, making it highly dangerous to remove without adequate protection. Friable asbestos must be removed by specialists with class “A” license under State Regulations. No not attempt to remove by yourself.

Non-friable asbestos refers to asbestos that are tightly bonded to other materials. These materials contain a smaller percentage of asbestos and are unlikely release fibres into the air. However, if non-friable asbestos is damaged or degraded, such as weathered pipes, disrupting it may cause it to break down and release asbestos particles.
