Asbestos removal that is categorized as “High Risk”

20160502_152938 To remove asbestos (vermiculite) from this heritage home attic we needed to create a 3 stage decontamination containment. You can see the plastic (2 * 6m poly wall) going right into the attic. This allows us to contain any potential contamination of the home while work is taking place.

Asbestos containing waste is stored in an enclosed and locked bin and is then transported to Heartland via a licensed commercial carrier along with a waste transport manifest.
