Asbestos Removal Near Me

Asbestos has been around for more than 200 years and in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public contain asbestos material. In the UK between the 1950s and the mid-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 the above period, especially between the 60s and 70s, any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another. According to the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is that asbestos can cause four main diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening. Our highly trained team can undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos. But before that, we will need to complete an asbestos survey on your property.

A key stage in managing asbestos is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. This can be achieved by conducting an asbestos survey. There is a management survey and a refurbishment and demolition survey. The management survey is a standard survey, the purpose of it is to locate 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. Then the refurbishment & demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area of refurbishment work that will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment & demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances.
