Demolition of a building with Asbestos can be dangerous as asbestos fibers become exposed. There are a number of permit requirements and other procedures that are required to gain approval for the demolition of an asbestos property.
There is a number of dangers associated with asbestos exposure, health risks include lung cancer, asbestosis & pleural thickening. If a property has asbestos and/or was built with asbestos building products the asbestos can be disrupted if demolition commences without the proper removal processes. If a property begins demolition prior to asbestos removal the asbestos becomes disrupted and the fine fibres enter the lungs and the chance of asbestos-related illness greatly increases. Asbestos can easily become disturbed or otherwise broken down during demolition. When this happens asbestos particles become airborne and be inhaled by occupants. Consistent inhalation of asbestos particles can lead to asbestosis and even lung cancer. Airborne asbestos in not easy to detect and the health impacts can go unnoticed for over a decade before symptoms begin to show.

If your commercial property contains asbestos it is not recommended to attempt your own demolition or renovations, as the asbestos becomes more harmful if broken. If asbestos is present in your property, it can make the required demolition project much more intensive and potentially dangerous. Commercial asbestos demolition projects need to be approved based on a number of workplace safety and health standards. When demolishing a building with asbestos particles present, biohazard equipment and remediation processes are also required. A professional demolition company communicates with the required corporate and government bodies to attain demolition acceptance and have the equipment to safely demolish your asbestos commercial building.
