Steps We Take While Removing Asbestos Containing Materials From a Building


Bag Removal of Asbestos

Asbestos fibers are tiny fibers that are built into many products. While completing the abatement process we need to get the asbestos containing materials out of the building, but how do we do this?


Answer: Thick Bags!


The Bagging Process for Removing Asbestos Containing Materials


For this process, we use at minimum a 6mil Poly Bag, not only one but two bags.


This process involves a specific bagging method guided by Manitoba regulations

Bag one, we place the materials into the first poly bag, we then gooseneck the bag and seal it.


Bag two, we place the first bag full of materials into the second one, we then gooseneck the second bag and seal it as well.


A gooseneck seal is when we twirl the open top of the bag and fold the thick twirled end in on itself, creating an end that resembles a gooses neck. This method helps seal the bag further to ensure no asbestos fibers sneak their way out of the bag.


The outer bag is labeled with an applicable "danger asbestos" label governed by our local government.
