Understanding asbestos

To help increase your knowledge of the nature of asbestos, its properties, and its associated health risks, we answer some frequently asked questions. These will give you a better understanding of the importance of asbestos awareness and the need for professional asbestos removal and disposal services.


What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre, once widely used for strength, heat resistance, and building insulation properties. Asbestos insulating board was also commonly used to protect buildings from fire. However, due to health concerns, the supply and use of all asbestos products have been banned in the UK since 1999.


Where is Asbestos Found?

Asbestos can be found in many common building materials, including insulation, ceiling tiles, pipe lagging, roofing felt, and textured coatings, together with older appliances, automotive parts, and certain industrial products. Asbestos waste may also be present in soil because of poor management of previous asbestos works.


Is Asbestos Dangerous?

When any material containing asbestos is moved or damaged, tiny fibres are released into the atmosphere, and when they’re inhaled, they can cause serious diseases. This exposure can have severe risks and lead to various long-term and potentially life-threatening conditions, including asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other cancers.


Do I Need an Asbestos Removal Contractor?

Yes. If you suspect that asbestos is present in your home or premises, especially if it was built before or during 1999, you’ll need an asbestos removal contractor for its safe and proper removal and disposal.

Asbestos removal services


Attempting to handle asbestos removal on your own can be dangerous, so professional removal services are crucial to ensure the safe and effective moving and disposal of asbestos waste from your property or building. 


However, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right company for your asbestos removal project. First, ensure the company is licensed and certified in asbestos removal to ensure they’ve met the regulatory standards and conditions in compliance with HSE and have a fully-trained workforce to handle asbestos safely.


Secondly, check the company's commitment to safety. A reputable asbestos removal company prioritises safety at every process stage, from initial assessment and containment to proper disposal. They should use appropriate protective gear, employ containment measures to prevent fibre release and follow proper asbestos disposal procedures in accordance with local regulations.


Finally, choose a company that offers comprehensive services beyond asbestos removal. Check they can undertake thorough asbestos inspections and testing, provide encapsulation options if needed, and perform air quality monitoring to ensure safe conditions after asbestos removal.
