    What is Asbestos?

    Asbestos is a naturally occurring material fibre that was widely used in building construction and other industries until the late 1990s. There are commonly three types of asbestos fibres used in building and construction in the UK:

    White (chrysotile): the most common form, used in roofs, ceilings, walls and floors.
    Blue (crocidolite): used in spray-on coatings, pipe insulation, plastics and cement products.
    Brown (amosite): used in cement sheets, ceiling tiles and thermal insulation products.

    Though asbestos is a natural mineral that was widely used for the above building and construction purposes, it wasn’t until the 2000s that its dangers were discovered. Asbestos is now a banned substance in the UK, however many buildings constructed before the year 2000 including in domestic, educational, public and commercial sectors, may still contain this hazardous material. Due to its many dangers, it’s vital that you look for a licensed asbestos removal specialist in Essex such as Waste Transport Services to help remove this toxic material.

    Why is asbestos dangerous?

    When products containing asbestos degrade. They release hazardous and toxic fibres into the atmosphere which can cause serious long-term health conditions such as:

    Lung cancer.
    Mesothelioma: cancer of the lining of the chest and the abdominal cavity.
    Asbestosis: where the lungs become scarred with fibrous tissue.

    If you suspect that you have asbestos materials on your property, know that they are present or are making changes in your property that might disturb it. Then it’s crucial that you opt for professional asbestos removal in Essex to protect yourself and other occupants within the building against these potentially life-threatening conditions.

    How is asbestos identified?

    As it has no distinctive visual characteristics, asbestos can be hard to identify. As specialists in licensed asbestos removal in Chelmsford, we at Waste Transport Services are highly qualified to identify any asbestos on your property, advise on further action and carry out the safe removal of it in accordance with Health & Safety Executive Regulations and Guidelines.There are two types of surveys that we complete before undertaking our licensed asbestos removal in Essex, as directed by UK legislation…

    Management Asbestos Survey

    A Management Asbestos Survey is usually a visual, non-invasive survey that requires minimal sampling to assess where asbestos is likely to be within your property. Our qualified surveyors will assess its condition and/or deterioration before providing advice on any remedial work that needs to be actioned immediately.

    Refurbishment/Demolition Survey

    A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey is a more invasive survey that is required when a building or part of the property needs upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. This type of survey requires that the building is vacant as all asbestos much be located before any structural work commences and often disturbs a large amount of hazardous materials.

    How is asbestos removed?

    We are fully licensed in asbestos removal in Essex and can provide you with the assurance that our removal will be thorough and completely effective. There are two main processes to eradicate asbestos and if you’ve been wondering what they involve here’s everything you need to know…

    Asbestos Encapsulation

    Asbestos encapsulation is usually used when the asbestos is not widespread throughout the property and the process involves applying a protective layer of sealant to the surface to stop toxic fibres from becoming damaged or disturbed, and therefore, airborne. The sealant layer can either be applied directly to the asbestos-contaminated area or can be installed using an independent supporting framework.

    Asbestos Abatement

    Asbestos abatement, although more invasive, can be a necessary process to undertake to guarantee your safety. The property will need to be vacated before work begins and we will seal off the affected areas before demolishing and disposing of any hazardous materials, including wallboards, floor tiles,
    roofing, construction mastics and more. Due to the toxic threats involved in this process, our specialists will wear full protective equipment including respirators and disposable overalls.

    How is asbestos disposed of?

    Asbestos waste should be placed in sealed bags and placed into a sealed container. We supply enclosed lockable skips for asbestos disposal which can also be used with other hazardous wastes. As fully licensed asbestos removal specialists in Essex, you can depend on us to safely remove the hazardous material from your site for you and organise your asbestos disposal.
