    What is Asbestos?

    Asbestos is a natural mineral that was commonly used in building construction from 1930 to the 1990s, particularly from the 1960s and can still be found in many building materials. There are three common types of asbestos fibres still found in buildings across 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.

    Before the dangers of asbestos were discovered in the 2000s, it was used in a broad range of building materials, although since then, it has become a banned substance in the UK. Unfortunately, asbestos can still be found in many buildings constructed before the year 2000 including in domestic,educational, public and commercial settings. Due to its toxic nature, it’s crucial that you get in touch with a qualified asbestos removal company in London to ensure that asbestos is removed and disposed of correctly.

    Why is asbestos dangerous?

    Since the 2000s, it has become commonly known that asbestos is dangerous as, when asbestos-containing materials deteriorate, they release hazardous and toxic fibres into the atmosphere which, if inhaled, can cause serious long-term health conditions including:

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

    How is asbestos identified?

    Unfortunately, asbestos has no defining characteristics to help us identify it, which is why professional surveys undertaken by a trusted asbestos removal company in London are crucial to reliable identification. We can 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 London, as directed by UK legislation…

    Management Asbestos Survey

    A Management Asbestos Survey requires minimal sampling of areas where asbestos is suspected to determine if it is present and is a visual, non-invasive survey. Our qualified surveyors will assess its condition and/or deterioration before providing recommendations on any remedial work that needs to be actioned, whether that be asbestos encapsulation or abatement.

    Refurbishment/Demolition Survey

    More invasive than a Management Asbestos Survey, a Refurbishment/Demolition Survey is undertaken when a building is going to be upgraded, refurbished or demolished. A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey requires that the building is vacated as the process often disturbs large amounts of hazardous materials for complete identification and is required before any structural work begins.

    How is asbestos removed?

    We are fully licensed in asbestos removal in London and are committed to providing our clients with the assurance they need that we have thoroughly removed any asbestos present. 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

    Asbestos encapsulation is commonly used to treat asbestos if it is not widespread throughout the building. This process involves applying a layer of sealant either directly to the surface of the asbestos-contaminated area or using an independent supporting framework and will stop toxic fibres from becoming damaged, disturbed or airborne.

    Asbestos Abatement

    Asbestos abatement is a more serious and invasive measure and is undertaken when asbestos is found to be widespread throughout your property. For asbestos abatement, the property will need to be vacated and areas will be sealed off before we demolish and dispose of any affected areas, including wallboards, floor tiles, roofing, construction mastics and more.

    How is asbestos disposed of in London?

    Health & Safety Executive Regulations and Guidelines dictate the process by which asbestos removal should adhere to. We will remove the waste and place it in sealed bags and into a sealed container before disposing of it. We can also supply enclosed lockable skips for asbestos disposal which can also be used with other hazardous wastes. As a fully licensed asbestos removal company in London,you can rely on us to safely arrange your asbestos disposal.
