Domestic Asbestos Collection
In the North West and North Wales area, Fibre Safe Ltd provides asbestos waste collection services to our clients in the form of asbestos waste disposal services. In compliance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations, our operatives will bag up or collect the asbestos waste from your home prior to disposing of it in accordance with the regulations. With this service, you are saved from dealing with heavy and hazardous materials, saving you both time and effort. Furthermore, it allows you to avoid the legal issues that can arise as a result of transporting & disposing of hazardous waste from your house in a legal manner.
The simple answer is that you won’t. In order to property determine if you home contains asbestos you will need to appoint a qualified and competent surveyor who will assess your home and take samples of any suspected asbestos materials. These samples will then be sent to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis. Upon receiving the results the surveyor will produce a report showing the Type, Location and Condition of all asbestos in your home.
Yes you can remove some of the more minor types of asbestos yourself. Please remember that they will need to be removed carefully under controlled conditions. You will need genuine overalls that are for asbestos removal and a mask with a P3 filter. The asbestos must be wrapped in polythene and taken to a local site which takes hazardous waste. I would advise that you give us a call before you do this.
Give us a call and one of our operatives will come out and take a sample. We will then analyse the material and provide you with a certificate showing if it is asbestos free of the type and concentration of asbestos found within it.
It depends upon the type f asbestos found, the amount of asbestos contained in the product, the condition of the product and how likely to be disturbed the asbestos is. Some asbestos is fine to live with and never needs to be removed. Some needs to be repaired, some isolated or painted and others need to be removed immediately to prevent exposure. The first step to determine this is to give us a call on 0800 458 4136
Commercial Asbestos Collection
Asbestos waste collection is offered by Fibre Safe Ltd to its clients in North Wales and the North West. Your asbestos waste will be bagged or collected by our operatives and then disposed of in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations. Heavy and hazardous materials can be handled this way, saving you time and effort. As a result, you avoid legal issues associated with transporting and disposing of hazardous waste.
You must create an asbestos management plan using up to date information about asbestos in the building and perform risk assessments. This can be quite a tricky subject and we wold advise that you give us a call for consultation.
No not at all. Removal of asbestos is always the last option in our books. Asbestos is only dangerous if it is disturbed and therefore no remedial actions may be needed. It depends upon where the asbestos is, the condition of the material and how likely to be disturbed it is. Other remedial actions may include encapsulation, isolation, or repairs.
As a commercial property owner you have a legal duty to manage asbestos at your premises under the Control of Asbestos (CAR2006) regulations. Whilst the day-to-day management of asbestos can be delegated to a manager or management company, the legal duty cannot be delegated and the property owner is still ultimately responsible for ensuring that any appointed persons are competent to fulfil the responsibilities laid out under this duty
Yes the management survey only shows asbestos which is found during a normal inspection. A refurbishment survey is used to find hidden asbestos which cannot be found during a normal inspection such as asbestos hidden inn wall voids or under floor boards.
