When you need to get asbestos removed
If you’re thinking of doing any kind of renovation in an area that contains asbestos - you HAVE to get the asbestos removed safely. When you go under renovation, you effectively become a PCBU (Person Conducting Business or Undertaking). Anyone who comes on-site to your property is therefore your responsibility. It is important that there’s no risk of them inhaling the asbestos when they’re undertaking any renovation work.
Be prepared and don’t let Asbestos halt your renovation plans!
The difference between Class A & Class B asbestos removal
When you talk to an asbestos removal company, they may refer to the removal of asbestos as: 'class A' or 'class B' - which refers to the type of asbestos and how much can be removed.
Those with a class A asbestos removal license can remove:
Any amount of friable asbestos or ACM (a material that is easily reduced to a powder when crushed by hand like low density boards)
Any amount of non-friable asbestos or ACM (harder to extract the asbestos from the material as it it generally bonded to the surface)
Any amount of ACD (Asbestos Contaminated Debris)
Those with a class B asbestos removal license can remove:
Any amount of non-friable asbestos or ACM
ACD that is linked to the removal of any amount of non-friable asbestos or ACM

Why it’s important not to remove the asbestos yourself
Although Kiwis are known for their DIY enthusiasm, it’s very unsafe to do it alone and try to remove asbestos yourself. In fact, trying to remove asbestos may in fact make the asbestos airborne, which would contaminate your entire home. There are also strict recommendations on how you should dispose of the removed asbestos, if not followed correctly, a removal company is not going to be legally allowed to remove it. Therefore our best recommendation is to leave asbestos removal to the experts - contact Chemcare.
