Do you need asbestos removed from your properties/premises? Our team will be able to help you do this with our brilliant removal service. 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 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 this period 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 findings by the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is because it can cause 4 different diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening. Asbestos Contracting Limited has a highly trained team that can undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos. Before our team can remove any suspect asbestos we must complete a survey. Surveying 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 performing a management survey or a refurbishment and demolition survey.
The management survey is a standard survey. Its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is used before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. 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.
