    What is Asbestos?

    Asbestos is a natural mineral that was widely used in building construction and other industries until the late 1990s and can still be found in many building materials. There are typically 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.

    Although asbestos was used across a broad range of building materials, it wasn’t until the 2000s that its dangers were discovered, and it is now a banned substance in the UK. Unfortunately, asbestos remains present in many buildings constructed before the year 2000 and can be found in domestic, educational, public and commercial premises. Due to its hazardous nature, it’s essential that you contact a professional asbestos removal company in Kent to ensure that you are protected against this hazardous material.

    How is asbestos identified?

    Asbestos unfortunately has no distinctive visual characteristics which make it hard to identify. This is why contacting asbestos removal specialists in Kent, such as Waste Transport Services, is a must as we 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 Kent, as directed by UK legislation…

    Management Asbestos Survey

    A Management Asbestos Survey is a visual, non-invasive survey that requires a small amount of sampling to determine where asbestos is present within your premises. Our qualified surveyors will assess its condition and/or deterioration before providing recommendations on any remedial work that needs to be actioned.

    Refurbishment/Demolition Survey

    A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey is more invasive than a Management Asbestos Survey and is usually required when a building or part of the property needs upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. This type of survey requires that the building is vacated as the process dictates that all asbestos within the building must be identified before any structural work begins and often disturbs large amounts of hazardous materials.

    How is asbestos removed?

    We are fully licensed in asbestos removal in Kent and can give you the peace of mind that our removal will be thorough and entirely effective. There are two main processes to remove asbestos and if you’ve been wondering what they involve here’s everything you need to know…

    Asbestos Encapsulation

    If asbestos is not widespread throughout your property, then we will usually choose the process of asbestos encapsulation. This process involves applying a layer of sealant either directly to the surface of the asbestos-contaminated area or using an independent supporting framework to stop toxic fibres from becoming damaged, disturbed, and airborne.

    Asbestos Abatement

    Asbestos abatement is the process undertaken when asbestos is found to be widespread throughout your property. This is a more invasive process whereby the property will need to be vacated as we will seal off the affected areas before demolishing and disposing of any hazardous materials,
    including wallboards, floor tiles, roofing, construction mastics and more.

    How is asbestos disposed of?

    Asbestos disposal should always be in accordance with Health & Safety Executive Regulations and Guidelines and upon removal, we will place the waste in sealed bags and into a sealed container. We supply enclosed lockable skips for asbestos disposal which can also be used with other hazardous wastes. As a fully licensed asbestos removal company in Kent, you can rely on us to safely remove the
    hazardous material from your site for you and organise your asbestos disposal.

    How much does asbestos removal cost in the Kent?
