When you are looking to get rid of any asbestos within your property you need to have a survey completed and this is 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. The survey should be in accordance with HSE guidance, this describes two types. The management survey and a refurbishment and demolition survey.  The management survey is used to locate the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before work is started. The survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work 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.

Then once the survey has been completed our team can remove the asbestos that has been found. It is important to remove all of the asbestos within a property because according to the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is because it causes four main diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening. In the UK between the 1950s and the mid-1980s asbestos was used in a wide variety of products such as thermal insulation, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. It is said that any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated during the 60s and 70s 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.

Asbestos can be found in a few different places around the workplace. You might find that there is asbestos in your cement products, textured coatings, floor tiles, textiles and composites. Sprayed coatings on ceilings, walls and beams/columns can also contain asbestos along with insulation boards and lagging.
