Local asbestos removal contractors for asbestos work in and around Effingham
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material, that can be found in any building the pre-dates 2000, including garages, sheds, outbuildings, homes, factories, schools and other commercial premises. It is one of the most toxic materials to be every used in construction and is now understood to be responsible for a wide range of illnesses. When the fibres become airborne and are inhaled, this can cause mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung-cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening. These diseases often present themselves decades after exposure, when it is too late to treat. The main types of asbestos found are Amosite (brown asbestos), Crocidolite (blue asbestos), and Chrysolite (white asbestos).
We are specialist, licensed contractors who can identify asbestos and if necessary, we can remove it safely for you. Often found in flues, water tanks, Artex ceilings and roof tiles, if the asbestos is in good condition, it can often be left undisturbed. However, there are occasions when it will need to be removed. These include:
- When the asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are damaged
- When they are vulnerable to damage by everyday activities
- Before demolition of a building
- Before maintenance or refurbishment work
- Where there has been a change of use, which may make ACMs more prone to damage
As licensed and registered carriers, we can safely remove, transport and dispose of any asbestos waste. We are insured with a public liability insurance of £1million and we dispose of asbestos at official, approved waste transfer facilities.
