How do our asbestos removal services work?
Exposure to asbestos fibres can be dangerous, potentially leading to health issues. That’s why it’s imperative that removal is left to the experts. Here is the process that will be taken once you get in touch with our team on 0333 577 0535 or via firstname.lastname@example.org:
We will discuss your requirements and ask you for information regarding the asbestos in your building. You may be asked to take pictures of the site that needs attention.
We will conduct an analytic report and risk assessment, ensuring that we are prepared for the removal or containment of asbestos. This will check that the project meets the NNLW criteria.
Our team will create an enclosure around their working area to minimise risk to the public. If the asbestos is difficult to access, we will ask you to clear the building so that we can operate safely.
The asbestos will be removed and disposed of responsibly. We will supply you with a waste consignment note for your records, signed off by the transfer station to give you peace of mind.
Professional asbestos removal: Our specialism
Disposing of asbestos is our speciality. Asbestos is typically found in roofs or garages, as well as in ceilings and floor tiles. If left unattended, it could pose a risk to those within the building, causing long-term health issues. Our team of experts will create an enclosure around the affected area to contain any fibres whilst we are working. Utilising specialist equipment such as a Class H vacuum cleaner, respirators, power tools, negative pressure units, and more, our team will safely remove or contain the asbestos. It will be securely bagged in asbestos waste sacks and taken away to a suitable transfer station.
An alternative solution to asbestos removal is encapsulation. This process contains the asbestos and leaves it in situ rather than removing it entirely. Encapsulation is completed by coating the area with ET-150 paint – a sprayable vapour barrier coating – sealing the asbestos fibres behind a protective layer. You can then continue your day-to-day operations, safe in the knowledge that your building is safe from asbestos for a 12-month period. An asbestos sticker will be placed beside the area, ensuring that other works can be conducted with the knowledge that asbestos is present. Encapsulated asbestos must be reassessed on an annual basis to ensure the coating is intact and effective.
Encapsulation eliminates the danger that asbestos poses to a building’s inhabitants by containing it underneath a protective layer of encapsulation paint.
Leaving the asbestos in place can be more cost-effective, particularly if the affected area is hard to access. It also creates less disruption than a full removal service.
Almost any type of asbestos can be encapsulated, whether it is found within pipes or floor tiles. This makes encapsulation a suitable option for buildings with multiple forms of asbestos.
