What is Asbestos Removal?

Asbestos was a naturally occurring fibre that was widely used in construction and other industries until the late 1990s.

We have a team that is a fully licensed and accredited asbestos removal company with relevant experience to manage, encapsulate, remove and dispose of all types of asbestos-containing materials.

At DES, we offer surveys and testing and qualified and safe asbestos disposal throughout Basildon. We work with the guidelines outlined clearly by The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (HSE) to complete both licensed and unlicensed works within the private, public, and domestic sectors.

Our process:

  • Surveying and testing to identify the types of asbestos
  • Removal
  • Management & encapsulation
  • Disposal of asbestos
  • Remediation of asbestos-contaminated land
  • Blast and breathe method available


There are three types of asbestos commonly found in the UK.

  • Blue (crocidolite)
  • White (chrysotile)
  • Brown (amosite)

On average, asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths per year, leading to severe health complications such as lung disease, lung cancer, Mesothelioma and other life-threatening illnesses when exposed to asbestos repeatedly. Due to this safety matter, the removal and disposal of asbestos is paramount.

High Quality Removal and Disposal of all Types of Asbestos

As a licensed asbestos removal company, our team is qualified to perform the entire removal process, including survey and testing, encapsulation, removal, and disposal of asbestos.

Encapsulation is the process of applying a protective layer onto the asbestos-containing material (ACM), providing protection from ACM damage.

DES is an accredited asbestos removal contractor, equipped to properly dispose of asbestos. With the various types of asbestos, it’s crucial for our team to assess and survey the situation first to ensure everyone’s safety.

Once removed, the asbestos is wrapped up or double bagged. Next, it’s often placed into an enclosed asbestos skip and transported directly to a licenced landfill. For smaller volumes of asbestos waste, it’s instead placed onto our vehicle’s secure and sectioned waste box and is then transported to an asbestos waste transfer facility for correct disposal.

Incorrect asbestos disposal is illegal and will result in a fine as well as a probable prison sentence.
