Asbestos pipe lagging removal is most definitely a job for a professional asbestos removal company such as PROAS. Here at PROAS we have over 20 years of experience in finding and identifying all kinds of hazardous asbestos products, together with a reputation for the safe removal of friable asbestos throughout Melbourne and beyond.
One of the main uses for asbestos was as an insulation and lagging material, with many old heating systems having asbestos lagging around boilers, pipework and calorifiers. This type of asbestos can have different appearances according to how it was used, especially as it was often painted or covered in a protective coating.
This can make it extremely difficult to identify, however you must be aware that under the coloured paintwork or coating there will be a fibrous material which flakes off and turns to powder when disturbed, making it one of the most dangerous materials containing asbestos. Once disturbed it release fibres into the air that are then breathed in, causing respiratory problems.
