Fresh and Clear Asbestos Removal

Always ensure any area where you are working with asbestos is well-ventilated with plenty of fresh air.
Before starting the removal process, completely saturate a small area with water and then remove the asbestos in that area quickly keeping the area thoroughly saturated. This helps minimize the release of asbestos fibre.

-Do not use any abrasive sanding disks or cutting tools
-Avoid the use of any kind of Power tool.
-Do not used air compressors of any sort
-Do not use high-pressure cleaners
