What is Asbestos Removal and Why is it Necessary?
Because of its fire-retardant and insulating qualities, asbestos, a naturally occurring fibrous silicate material, was frequently used in the construction and automotive industries, and more. The substance was fully outlawed once it was discovered that inhaling the fibres caused a major health danger and is the root cause of diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Between 1930 and 1980, asbestos was widely used in the UK, with the 1960s and 1970s seeing particularly prevalent usage. But the final prohibition of asbestos in all forms didn’t take place until 1999. Many buildings constructed before the year 2000 are likely to contain asbestos in some form and over 5000 deaths per year are believed to be directly related to asbestos inhalation.

Asbestos surveys for Northampton properties
It is crucial that you contact a professional and qualified asbestos removal contractor like DES Holdings if you suspect that your property might contain asbestos. The best approach is to find out if asbestos is actually present on your property, if it has been disturbed and the level of danger that it poses to individuals who use it – and this is achieved via a survey and testing.
As expert asbestos surveying contractors in the Northampton area, DES Holdings will visit your site to collect samples for testing and secure any areas that are thought to be of concern. We will then be able to suggest the best course of action for your situation.
If you’re planning a significant renovation or demolition project, then any ACM must be removed prior to the contractors beginning their work. An asbestos encapsulation and management procedure may be able to reduce the hazards and hassle if the asbestos is non-friable and unlikely to cause any harm to those using the building, saving the bigger task of removing it completely.
If removal is not an option, we can also encapsulate asbestos within Northampton
An asbestos survey aims to ascertain whether a property contains any ACM and if so, how much and what condition it is in. We perform asbestos surveys in Northampton to any and every type of building, whether commercial, industrial or domestic.
The survey aims to see that the asbestos is not mistakenly disturbed and if encapsulation is an option, will make sure that the protective measures put in place remain in top condition to ensure that no one is exposed to any asbestos fibres. If an encapsulation procedure is possible, then it will need to be regularly monitored and managed by a professional contractor to guard against any threat arising from damage to the covering protecting the ACM from damage. If this breaks down, then full removal will be necessary.
