What is Asbestos and Why do we Remove it?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibre that was widely used in construction and other industries until the banning of all types of asbestos on August 24th, 1999. The types of asbestos come under two families the serpentine minerals or amphibole family, however Chrysolite (white asbestos) was used frequently in construction and other industries but was the most dangerous.

Our expert team are fully licensed and experienced to manage, encapsulating, removing, and disposing of all types of asbestos-containing materials. We provide survey and testing, as well as professional and safe removal.

Our process:

Three main types of asbestos can be found in the UK.

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

Asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths each year. Asbestos is known to cause numerous health issues such as lung disease, lung cancer, Mesothelioma and other illnesses when exposed to high amounts of asbestos repeatedly.

For this reason, asbestos will need to be removed immediately as symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses will not show up straight away but after many years.

High Quality Removal and Disposal of all Types of Asbestos

The DES team are licensed to perform the entire asbestos removal process, including

  • Survey
  • Testing
  • Encapsulation
  • Safe Removal
  • Disposal

Encapsulation is the process of applying a protective layer onto the asbestos-containing material (ACM), providing protection from ACM damage.

Once the asbestos is removed it will either be wrapped or double bagged, depending on the size. Larger pieces of asbestos will be thrown into an enclosed asbestos skip, and directly transported to a licenced landfill. For smaller pieces of asbestos, they will be placed into asbestos bags and placed into our vehicles segregated waste box, while being transported to an asbestos waste transfer station for disposal.

Incorrect disposal of asbestos is illegal and will result in a fine or possible prison sentence.
