With our recent Commercial Asbestos Removal South Melbourne, hundreds of children and staff working closely together day after day in schools, it is imperative that buildings and facilities are kept safe and free from dangerous biohazard contaminants, and that they be identified and responded to quickly and efficiently by accredited professionals. Recently, PROAS Asbestos removal completed a commercial job involving the decontamination of biohazardous material from a ceiling space at a South Melbourne school.  

In addition to being used to build the walls of older-built homes, asbestos was also used as insulation of ceiling spaces in both loose-fill form and sheet form as the ceiling itself.

After a full inspection of this commercial property in South Melbourne was carried out, it was identified that hazardous materials were present in the roof cavity. The roof cavity is the space between the ceiling and the external roof. This area receives little to no human traffic, therefore it can be easily forgotten about. This space can collect materials such as fibreglass fibres, building materials containing asbestos, lead dust from pollution, droppings from animals, fungal spores, pesticides or dust which can then migrate into other inhabited areas through cracks in the ceiling and spaces around ceiling fixtures.

To rectify the issue, PROAS Asbestos Removal developed a plan to decontaminate the site over the course of 2 weeks. Working in dangerous, difficult, enclosed and cramped conditions under artificial lighting, our team performed the commercial asbestos removal in South Melbourne using a sustainable, reliable and effective removal procedure to ensure the highest standards of precaution were maintained.

As part of standard procedure, the designated area was closed off to ensure the safety of the public and any bystanders. All cracks and openings such as manholes and light fittings were also sealed to make sure that the contaminated material did not spread and risk unnecessary exposure.

Due to the nature of roof cavities and their subsequent electric hazards, a combination of wet and dry decontamination methods were used. Water was used to dampen the asbestos ridden areas to minimise the release of harmful dust and fibres into the air. Additionally, asbestos vacuum cleaners such as a HEPA filter Vacuum were also used to suck out dust and larger particles, which automatically collected in a sealed bag ready to be disposed of appropriately.

Our A-Class team performed this site decontamination process to satisfy all local and national requirements. After the decontamination of the work area, our team subsequently followed all to

ols, equipment and personal decontamination procedures to deter any chance of spread and recontamination.
