What is asbestos and why should I get my asbestos removed from my property in Battersea, SW18?
Asbestos is a term for a group of naturally-occurring fibrous silicate materials. Its fibres have excellent durability, fire resistance and insulating properties and the versatility of asbestos made it an ideal building material. ACMs can be categorised as friable and non-friable, or bonded. No-friable asbestos, where it is mixed with other materials like cement, is the type most commonly found in our building environments and in our homes. Unfortunately, we now know asbestos can also be deadly, causing serious lung diseases, such as lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
If you think you may have found asbestos on your property, do not touch it. Asbestos is only a risk if it is disturbed in any way that produces dust that contain asbestos fibres. The only way to determine whether or not a product contains asbestos is to have it tested. Often if materials containing asbestos are in your home and are in good condition, undamaged and undisturbed the safest option is to leave them undisturbed.

If you need an asbestos sampling and testing or surveying service in Battersea or Clapham (South West London), Goodbye Asbestos can help. Our local, knowledgeable and specialist team are perfectly located to serve your asbestos needs and will have all the answers to your asbestos queries.
If you require a one-off testing and sampling service or a bulk analysis service, our small team of asbestos experts can come and take samples to be sent to an authorised laboratory. Following this, a certificate is issued, which clearly shows whether or not asbestos is present and what type of asbestos it is. This service is particularly useful if you are a DIY enthusiast about to embark on some work on your property!
We also specialise in asbestos surveys: Asbestos Management Surveys and Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys. Under current legislation there is a duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises and an Asbestos Management Survey can form the basis of an Asbestos Management Plan. However, if you are looking to undertake refurbishment or demolition works, then you will require a more intrusive and thorough survey because this will involve gaining access to all areas, including those that might be difficult to reach.
