If a Boiler has asbestos on it, is it safe for the homeowner to be in the residence at the time of asbestos removal?
Yes! The area containing the boiler to be removed is enclosed by plastic drop sheet to prevent contamination by asbestos fibres and dust in other areas of the premises; In addition we use a negative air pressure vacuum in the room being serviced.
How are boilers removed?
Depending on what type of boiler you have; most boilers can be removed in sections. Some boilers contain asbestos in the bottom of the firepot, which will be removed using industry standard asbestos removal methods. Typically boiler removal is messy due to old water in the system. We combat this by using drop sheets and other absorbents. Our Customers often comment, "It looks cleaner than before the job was done!"
