Asbestos Removal In Dorchester

Why is asbestos so bad and why should it always be removed? This is because asbestos can cause four different diseases that are responsible for 4500 deaths each year. At ACL we offer comprehensive and competitive asbestos removal and safe disposal service in Dorchester. We also carry out asbestos surveys and testing on domestic and commercial property. Asbestos has been used for more than 2000 years and in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos material. In the UK between the 1950s and the 1980s asbestos was used in a wide variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. During this period especially in the 60s and 70s, any building that was either renovated or built would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another.

We have a highly trained team that can undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos. But before we can remove the ACM’s (Asbestos Containing Materials) we will need to perform a survey to locate and identify the type, condition and extent of any asbestos within the area. First of all, you have the management survey and this is a standard survey, its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and access to their condition. Then there is the refurbishment and demolition survey this should be completed before any work is carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area of the refurbishment work or the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey is fully intrusive and involves destructive inspection.
