High Quality Removal and Disposal of all Types of Asbestos
In the UK, there are three main types of asbestos often found.
- Blue (crocidolite)
- White (chrysotile)
- Brown (amosite)
Asbestos, on average, is responsible for over 5000 deaths per year that lead to serious health complications such as lung cancer, Mesothelioma, lung disease, and other life-threatening illnesses when repeatedly exposed to asbestos. Due to this life-threatening safety concern, the removal and disposal of asbestos is crucial.
As a licensed asbestos removal company, our team is qualified to perform the entire removal process that includes survey and testing, encapsulation, safe removal, and disposal of asbestos.
Encapsulation is known as the process that applies a protective layer onto the asbestos-containing material (ACM), protecting it from ACM damage.
DES is a licensed asbestos removal company, equipped to dispose of asbestos correctly and safely. With the several types of asbestos, our team must assess and survey the situation first to ensure everyone’s safety.
Once removed, the asbestos is wrapped up or double bagged. Then, it’s often placed into an enclosed asbestos skip and transported directly to a licenced landfill site. For smaller quantities of asbestos waste, it’s instead placed onto our vehicle’s segmented and secure waste box before being transported to an asbestos waste transfer facility.
Incorrect disposal of asbestos is illegal and can result in a heavy fine as well as a possible prison sentence.
