Asbestos Work


Following the Window work,  Asbestos removal came. —– Entrance area of my flat was

totally covered and shielded by Polyethylene sheet. 

Big box-fan was placed to extract the air from the enclosure.  (Next photo, left, bottom,white )


Then,  the panels of  Asbestos  were removed,  and inside the whole enclosure was splayed

with cleansing liquid and it was painstakingly wiped by a man wearing full protective

gear with fully enclosed Gas-mask.  —– It was almost like a scene in a crisis  film.


At the end of the operation,  whole set-up was ripped off and taken away. 

Then,  a man casually rolled-up the extractor duct-pipe run through my flat to the

outside, and took the box-fan away.  —– Amazingly without taking any measure to pay

attention to a possible fall-off of the dust from duct-pipe and the exposed fan’s filter

which was obviously having the most concentration of the dangerous asbestos dust. 

So,  I realized that  this whole grand operation was a kind of ritual to justify the

expensive charge,  which is capitalizing the people’s fear.  —– M m m m.

It’s really a rotten murky world isn’t it ?    😦

    At least you can feel safe about it. The second set of images looks like photos on a space station.

      Thank you Elena.
      In fact, Asbestos was used every where but hidden between 2 external panels.
      So that, unless it was exposed or drill through, not very dangerous, and many
      original occupiers has been living safely with it 35 years. 🙂
      Why change it now, must have dubious political reason. 😀
      A man in the protective clothes, its head gear looks more like Si-fi though,
      I can’t show his face.

    Hmmmmm, it’s all very fishy (as the expression goes), if you ask me. 🙂

      Thank you Lemony.
      Like all the carcinogenic substances, —– may cause a trouble or may not.
      Other than rational precaution, [worry] is useless and bad for the mental health.
      Life just goes on.

    Great work, that extractor fan moving the dust could have been so dangerous!
