  QUESTION: Qualified specialist for removing dust, 03 Aug 2004, Western Australia

We have been renovating our home for the last year. Fortunately, we have not lived in the house during the renovation. However, the renovation is nearing completion, and before moving back in we would like to have a specialist come and remove the dust from our roof space. We need to find someone qualified to do this in Perth, WA. Do you know of anyone?

Regards,
Emily.

ANSWER:  

I'm sorry to say that we have never heard of any contractor in Perth (or indeed the whole of WA) who carries out ceiling dust removal. The best recommendation I can make is that you find an asbestos removal contractor who is willing to do the work. The Personal Protective Equipment and HEPA-filtered industrial vacuum cleaners that are recommended for ceiling dust removal are exactly the same as those recommended for asbestos fibre (friable asbestos) clean-up/removal.

I can email you our Info Pack on Ceiling Dust Management and you are welcome to forward it to any asbestos removal contractor who is willing to consider the job, so that they are aware of what is required. That's the best we can do until one of our clients who has received this advice actually calls back and lets us know that they have found a good ceiling dust removalist. Could it be you that will finally call us up with the good news?? I hope so.

All the best with the work and please re-contact.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
