Domestic Asbestos Removal
If you have a suspected asbestos containing material within your home or the property that you are buying, our asbestos testing team can help you. Our team can carry out removal of asbestos products from the property in a professional, discrete and safe manner. We have experience in removing asbestos from both private & social housing and are working with local authorities in conjunction with other trades. Remember, although not all asbestos has to be removed by a specialist asbestos company; it is best removed by an appropriately trained, equipped and qualified company in order to guarantee safety during the works. The work still has to be done to a strict specification set by the HSE, which unfortunately many builders do not tend to follow; placing both the workers and 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.
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
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.

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
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.
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.
