What is asbestos and why do I need asbestos removal services?

Before it was banned in 1999, asbestos was commonly utilised in the construction industry amongst others, as it was valued for its fire resistance and insulation properties. However, since it was discovered that breathing in asbestos fibres increases the risk of developing major health issues such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, the use of asbestos was outlawed in many nations, including the UK.

Should you suspect that your building contains asbestos, you must have it evaluated by an expert as soon as possible. For properties in the Manchester area, DES Holdings is fully licenced and authorised to survey, manage, encapsulate and provide comprehensive asbestos removal services. Our engineers work in the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors and adhere to the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Our asbestos removal services in the Manchester area include:

  • Survey and testing
  • Removal
  • Management and encapsulation
  • Disposal
  • Remediation of asbestos-contaminated land

High-quality removal and disposal of all types of asbestos in Manchester

Three different forms of asbestos can be found in the UK:

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

Asbestos exposure has been linked to a number of diseases, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and lung disease. Around 5000 fatalities are thought to occur as a result each year. Because of this, asbestos requires expert removal and tight containment.

To appropriately remove and discard asbestos-containing materials (ACM), DES Holdings has the necessary accreditation and authorisation. The asbestos materials must be double bagged, wrapped, and placed in an asbestos skip before being dumped in a permitted landfill. A fine or perhaps a prison sentence may follow from the unauthorised disposal of asbestos.

Asbestos surveys for Manchester properties

DES Holdings is an accredited asbestos surveyor with over 30 years’ experience and can provide every form of asbestos treatment from survey to encapsulation or removal for residential and commercial properties in Manchester and the surrounding areas as well as offering asbestos removal services across the UK. A professional asbestos survey begins with the taking and testing of samples.

Once the asbestos survey is completed, DES Holdings will have determined the best approach to manage the asbestos, whether through removal or encapsulation. Our professional team can conduct an asbestos removal service for your Manchester property. The removal of asbestos will be professional, fast and efficient, guaranteeing that all materials containing asbestos are removed and disposed of safely, correctly and according to regulations.

Encapsulation of asbestos in Manchester

Should the asbestos survey of your Manchester property show that you don’t require asbestos removal but instead our encapsulation services, we are licensed to do so and guarantee the safety of all occupants in the building at the same time.

Encapsulation means that the asbestos is contained and monitored to prevent any harm to human health or the environment and may be a cheaper option, if it can remain undisturbed, than removal. Whether your Manchester building needs encapsulation or removal services, we can help you decide on the best course of action after your asbestos survey is completed.
