Asbestos decontamination

SOS asbestos: what is it and what can it cause?

Asbestos is a natural mineral belonging to the class of silicates. It is harmful to healthdue to its capacity to release fibres that may be inhaled and are responsible for serious and irreversible pathologies mainly affecting the lungs, in the form of asbestosis, lung cancer and pleural mesothelioma.

Nevertheless its technological properties have led to its widespread industrial use for the production of compact items, such as Asbestos-Cement also known as Eternit, as well as friable items. 

The main health hazard concerns friable asbestos, which turns to dust in your hands. Compact asbestos does not tend to release fibres, unless it is sawn or scratched with the use of mechanical tools. Nonetheless, even a slight deterioration due to wear and atmospheric agents can be hazardous.


Do you need a hand? We are ready

The first thing to do in case of suspected or certain presence of asbestos, randon or other suspicious materials in building is to map and assess the state of preservation of the materials, and thus the health risk. To do so a suitable structure is needed: Friulana Costruzioni, unlike many others, is able to provide it, together with the removal and disposal of the building material at competitive rates. 

Inspections, material sampling, air sampling, analysis and specific reports on priorities (from removal, to encapsulation, to covering, to simple periodic checks): a true consultancy service on environmental problems. A comprehensive intervention on every front.
