Preparation is critical to a smooth and safe process. We will identify elements such as access to your property, if power and water is available, etc.
As professional asbestos removalists, we know the importance of organisation and awareness of the surroundings. Before starting any work, we ensure your Melbourne neighbours are formally informed of the process in writing, allowing them to take the recommended actions such as sealing off doors and windows. All relevant floors with be covered with heavy duty plastic sheeting, and residents, visitors and even pets are not permitted access during the asbestos removal process.
