Who needs an Asbestos Removal?
If you suspect your building may have contain asbestos products, it is strongly advised you have a management or refurbishment survey, where samples are taken to see if you need to take any action.
It’s good practice to assume that any properties built pre 2000 contain asbestos. If your report advises the material has been found and is of medium or high risk, it is strongly advised you seek removal.
The following containing items are commonly found in properties built before 2000 and may need to be inspected and removed:
- Cement flues
- Cement roofs
- Asbestos pipe lagging
- Asbestos sprayed coatings
- Loose asbestos insulation
What does the removal involve?
We will require the property to be vacated and in the of interest is thoroughly sealed off. Once the containing materials are disturbed during the removal process, deadly fibres will be released. By sealing off the surrounding areas, this ensures the risk is controlled.
Asbestos is a very hazardous substance and The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 require that all materials are to be removed and disposed of using the correct and safe procedures.
Our highly-trained team will deliver your project on time and on budget.
What happens after removal?
The asbestos will be disposed of safely under practices outlined by government legislation. Every removal comes with a certificate of removal and disposal.
Following this, you will need to carry out an up to date management report which will show that the asbestos is no longer present.
We have a highly skilled team capable of removing, containing or encapsulating asbestos. After the physical removal, we will need to eradicate any trace of fibres from the sealed area. This may be carried out using specialist vacuums or filtering tools. After the site has been cleaned, the surveyor will need to confirm the area is safe.
Removal of the following comes under “high risk” and requires a licensed assessor:
• Sprayed coatings
• Asbestos insulation
• Asbestos lagging
• Most asbestos insulating board
Other removal tasks that involve lower risk containing materials do not require a licensed assessor to do so.
