Domestic Asbestos Removal
Our team can safely and discretely remove asbestos from your property. Our asbestos removal services cover both private and social housing, and we work with local authorities.
The removal of asbestos does not necessarily require the involvement of a specialist asbestos company; however, to ensure safety, the work should be carried out by a qualified and appropriately trained company. Unfortunately, many builders do not follow the strict specifications set by the HSE; placing themselves and the occupants of the house at risk.
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.
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
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.
You can take it to a commercial hazardous waste site who will charge you according to the weight or you can try your local tip who sometimes take hazardous waste once a month if its booked in. Please don’t just turn up at your local tip with hazardous waste without calling.

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.
No unfortunately you are going to have to pay in full for the works however you can get tax relief on a survey. As part of the government’s urban regeneration scheme, under the Finance Act 2001, it is possible to claim 150% of the cost of asbestos remediation against your company’s profits as tax relief. For example: if asbestos removal costs £10,000 a company can deduct £15,000 from their taxable income. This also means that if the company made a loss, then they could be eligible for a cash rebate. This concession only applies to UK registered companies and does not apply if the building or land was owned by the company when the asbestos was originally imported. Ask your company’s accountant or financial advisor for more information on how this might apply to you.
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
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.
