Frequently asked questions

Can I remove asbestos by myself?

Under no circumstances should you attempt to remove asbestos by yourself.

As stated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), asbestos removal should be carried out by a certified asbestos services company to ensure no harm comes to you, the environment, or anyone else in the vicinity.

Any attempt to remove asbestos by yourself can result in serious long-term health conditions and death. When asbestos is disturbed or damaged, dangerous fibres are released into the air which will be easily inhaled.

If you suspect there is asbestos in your property, the first step is to book an asbestos survey. You can get a fast free quote for this from our team today.

How do I check for asbestos?

Identifying asbestos in a property is more involved than simply making a visual assessment of the nature of a piece of building material. So you should always use a professional asbestos testing company to determine if your property contains asbestos.

Asbestos material testing consists of taking a small sample of material which is then tested by an external UKAS accredited lab.

Within 48-hours the lab results will provide the answer as to whether or not the sampled materials contain asbestos. Where asbestos has been identified it will need appropriately managing, and if the condition of the asbestos is not suitable to be managed, asbestos removal will be required.

What is an asbestos Risk Register?

The requirement for an asbestos risk register applies to commercial and industrial properties. It is a key component to helping you manage your asbestos and it requires updating at least once a year. This register contains;

1. Dates of regular inspections of the condition of the asbestos in the property

2. Any changes resulting in the removal of asbestos

3. Any new asbestos surveys undertaken and the locations of identified asbestos

4. A record of any deterioration of the asbestos that is present

This is a very important document to have to hand when any maintenance is taking place on the property and, whilst being a legal requirement, ensures the occupants of the property and people working on the building itself are kept safe.

Where is asbestos found in a building?

Asbestos can be found all over a residential house and is commonly found both inside and outside. Such areas include lofts, cement water tanks, pipe lagging, insulation, artex ceilings, around windows, and boilers to name a few. Outside it can be found in roofs, downpipes, and cement panels.

Industrially it can be found in the above locations and also other places such as fire doors, fire blankets, beams, and partition walls to name a few.

If you suspect there are asbestos-containing materials (ACM's) in your commercial or residential property, we recommend arranging for an appropriate asbestos survey to be carried out.
