Are you looking for Asbestos Removal advice?
If you’re looking to removal asbestos from your home or office building, then it might be helpful to take some advice first before you take any further action. Asbestos removal can be costly, so it’s important to understand the removal process, before considering what to do next.
Asbestos is a hazardous material, but it is also found naturally in many products. These include many house installation materials such as ceiling tiles, wall decorations and bath panels. It is actually a naturally occurring mineral, and was used extensively in building materials in Great Britain from the 1950s to 1980s.
In many cases, asbestos traces are small and perfectly harmless, but if there is a significant amount then it could be hazardous to your health, and you will need to think through the different options available for removing the asbestos as safe and legally as possible.
Here at Abestos-Removals.co.uk, we can help to answer all of your enquiries regarding asbestos removal. From identification, price costing and ensuring its safe removal within a specific time limit, we can discuss your requirements and proceed quickly to sort out your asbestos related problem
If you have a large amount of asbestos in your house or building, it is best to have it removed professionally – in which case the council can arrange for it to be collected. Before you do, it is worth bearing in mind the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 which outlines a ban on all new second-hand products which use asbestos. This does not effect the use of existing materials, which suggests if the materials are in good condition, they should be left alone. However, if this is not the case and much older materials are used, then they will have to be removed by a licensed contractor.
This is where we can help. We can provide you with helpful advice and find a licensed contractor to help remove the asbestos for you safely and legally. If the asbestos removal work that needs to be undertaken poses a low risk to employees or home owners, then you may be exempt from having a licensed contractor remove the asbestos. A risk assessment should first be carried out to determine the necessary course of action.
If the removal work does need licensing, then you will be required to notify the enforcing authority in your area (the council), designate the work area and prepare it for specific asbestos emergency procedures. If you’re a business owner, you will also have to pay for your employees to undergo medical surveillance. It is these factors which you may have to consider and our team of Asbestos Removal experts can help you every step of the way.
The main dangers involved in removing asbestos involve being exposed to asbestos fibres, which can happen when the materials are damaged, or are repaired in any way. The results of breathing in asbestos can be especially damaging for your health and can lead to cancer of the organs, particularly the lungs.
Asbestosis is a scar like tissue which develops in lungs and can lead to permanent lung damage. It’s therefore vital that you follow procedures to safely remove all traces of asbestos as safe and legally as possible.
