What is asbestos and why do I need asbestos removal services?
Up until its ban in 1999, asbestos was routinely used in the construction industry and others as it was popular for its insulation properties and fire-resistance. However, asbestos was discovered to cause a list of serious health problems when the fibres were inhaled, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, and its use was banned in many countries around the world including the UK.
If you believe that there might be asbestos in your property, it is vital to have it assessed by a professional as soon as possible. DES Holdings are fully licenced and authorised to survey and assess as well as manage, encapsulate and provide comprehensive asbestos removal services for properties in the London area. We work within the commercial and domestic sectors and our asbestos removal engineers adhere to the guidelines of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Our asbestos removal services in London include:
- Survey and testing
- Management and encapsulation
- Remediation of asbestos-contaminated land
High-quality removal and disposal of all types of asbestos in London
Three different forms of asbestos can be found in the UK:
- Blue (crocidolite)
- White (chrysotile)
- Brown (amosite)
Asbestos has been proven to cause illnesses such as lung cancers and lung disease, mesothelioma and other illnesses when people are exposed to asbestos. It is believed to cause over 5000 fatalities every year. For this reason, asbestos needs to be removed and contained securely by an expert.
DES Holdings is accredited and licenced to properly remove and dispose of asbestos-containing materials (ACM). The asbestos materials have to be wrapped or double-bagged and enclosed in an asbestos skip or taken to a permitted landfill for disposal. The unauthorised disposal of asbestos can result in a fine or even a prison sentence.
Asbestos surveys for London buildings
DES Holdings is an expert in performing asbestos surveys for both residential and commercial properties in London and its surrounding areas, with over 30 years of experience in the industry. As professional asbestos removal contractors throughout the UK, DES Holdings offer asbestos surveys, encapsulation and removal services.
Asbestos removal begins with a survey of the property where samples are collected to be tested. After the asbestos survey is complete, our accredited team can decide whether removal or encapsulation is the best course of action. Our skilled team can provide a complete asbestos removal service for your London property. The complete and professional removal of asbestos will be conducted efficiently, ensuring all hazardous materials are disposed of safely and in accordance with regulations.
Encapsulation of asbestos in London
Should the asbestos survey of your London property show that you don’t require asbestos removal, but instead our encapsulation services, we are licensed to complete this whilst guaranteeing the safety of all who use the building.
Encapsulation, which is the process of keeping the asbestos confined and under regular monitoring, is potentially a less expensive option to the complete removal of the asbestos if it can be maintained undisturbed to prevent harm to human health and the environment. Whether your London building needs encapsulation or removal services, we can advise you on the best course of action after the completion of your asbestos survey.
