Asbestos removal – the process.
There are many misleading preconceptions as to what contains asbestos and what doesn’t. Some materials may appear to contain asbestos and do not and some materials may appear harmless but contain asbestos. If there is asbestos present, or your suspect asbestos to be present, it is far better to contact an asbestos removal specialist and arrange for it to be handled and removed by an expert than removal be attempted by an untrained unregulated person.
The Control of Asbestos regulations act requires the duty holder, owner or manager, to identify the location and condition of asbestos-containing materials and to arrange for a written asbestos management plan to be created to ensure any potential risks are suitably managed. We are well equipped and have extensive experience of working with asbestos with specialised tools and methods to test for asbestos, provide an asbestos survey and carry out the subsequent removal.
Asbestos is generally found in commercial or domestic buildings which were built or refurbished before the year 1999. Common places where asbestos may be found include;
- textured decorative coatings (commonly referred to as Artex)
- lagging (on pipes and boilers etc)
- water tanks and toilet cisterns
- sprayed coatings on ceilings, walls and beams/columns.
- asbestos cement products (pipes, flues, roofs etc)
- textiles and composites
- loose asbestos in ceiling and wall cavities
- floor tiles
- asbestos insulating board (AIB – which closely resembles typical plasterboard)
