What is Asbestos Removal?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was frequently employed in the building industry and across many other sectors. It was discovered that breathing in the fibres was a significant health hazard, potentially causing diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, and is now a banned substance.

Asbestos was mostly used between 1930 and 1980 in the UK, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s, but it wasn’t until 1999 that all types of asbestos were completely banned. This means that there is a risk of asbestos use in many homes, buildings and schools constructed right up until the year 2000.

In addition to our asbestos surveying and testing services, we offer the skilled, safe and secure encapsulating, removing and disposal of all types of asbestos-containing materials from your property. Our asbestos removal engineers are fully licensed in the safe removal of hazardous asbestos materials in public, private and domestic situations, and are always fully compliant with the stringent regulations outlined in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Asbestos management surveys for Leicester properties

The goal of an asbestos management survey is to find out whether asbestos-containing materials (ACM) are present on a property, and to what extent. We provide asbestos surveys to commercial and industrial buildings, as well as to leaseholders and freeholders.

This kind of survey complies with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Part 2, Regulation 4, ‘duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises’. Those in charge of managing a property must be aware of any ACM that may be present and must safely manage any risks.

Additionally, this survey attempts to make sure that no one unintentionally disturbs the asbestos, that the ACM is kept in excellent condition, and that no one is affected by the continued presence of ACM in the building.

Professional Asbestos Removal. Men In Protective Suits Are Removing Asbestos

If removal is not an option, we can encapsulate asbestos in Leicester

Asbestos encapsulation is a method of dealing with asbestos without having to completely remove it from the property. If ACM is too dangerous to be moved, encapsulation is a suitable alternative. A protective layer is applied to the ACM. This seamless protective coating completely covers and encapsulates the asbestos, allowing the ACM to stay where they are without further risk to health.

By using the encapsulation process rather than removal, the hazardous and costly process of disposing of asbestos can be removed. It can be carried out quickly and efficiently, reducing the overall disruption of the process.
