What is Asbestos Removal and Why is it Necessary?
Until 1999, when all forms of asbestos were completely outlawed, asbestos was commonly and routinely used in the construction and automotive industries amongst others. Because of its fire-retardant and insulating properties, it was used widely until the dangers of asbestos were discovered. A naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral, but when it becomes friable and the fibres are inhaled it poses serious health risks, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis amongst other diseases. Asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths every year and if your property was constructed prior to 1990 it is likely that this dangerous mineral was used in construction.
DES Holdings provides expert and safe asbestos surveys in Longbridge as well as testing, encapsulation and removal services for all types of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) from your premises as well as overseeing the safe disposal of any ACM found.

Asbestos surveys for Longbridge properties
If you think that your property may contain asbestos, it is vitally important that you contact a professional asbestos removal contractor such as DES Holdings. An asbestos survey is the way to determine if asbestos is present in your property or if it has been disturbed and the general level of threat to those using the property. DES Holdings, as experienced asbestos surveying contractors locally in Longbridge, will quickly come to your site and take samples for testing and secure any areas that are deemed a risk. They will then be able to advise you on the best way to proceed.
If you’re planning a demolition or a major renovation project, then the ACM will need to be removed prior to the contractors beginning. If the asbestos is non-friable and unlikely to cause imminent damage to persons using the property, then an asbestos encapsulation and management process may be able to mitigate the risks and hassle.
If removal is not an option, we can also encapsulate asbestos in Longbridge
Asbestos encapsulation for your Longbridge property is a solution for handling asbestos within your building if moving the ACM is too risky or impractical or isn’t posing an imminent threat to persons using the building.
The encapsulation process is where the asbestos is completely covered and enclosed by a protective covering to ensure that the ACM remains intact and undisturbed – therefore, preventing any further health risks. This can mitigate the potentially more disruptive process of asbestos removal and disposal as it can be completed much quicker and then monitored for the future.
