What is asbestos?
A naturally occurring mineral found in rock, asbestos usage soared throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s when it was used in construction due to its fire-proof and durable qualities. It was then banned in the late 1990s after being linked to cancer and mesothelioma.
Where am I likely to find asbestos?
Common in buildings built before 2002, asbestos was used in everything from roof sheeting through to cement. Our most regular removals usually involve garage roofs and tiles as well as forms of insulation and lagging.
Why is asbestos harmful?
Asbestos is usually safe until it is damaged, drilled or sawn. When it gets broken up it releases miniscule particles that are invisible to the naked eye. These particles are then inhaled into the lungs, where they attach onto the lining.

Specialist Asbestos Management Surveys in the Fareham area
In some instances, where asbestos is discovered on non-domestic premises, there is a legal duty to dispose of it. For example, every employer is required by The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to manage asbestos found on their premises.
The best way to do this is by hiring an experienced asbestos surveyor to complete an Asbestos Management Survey, which will determine if it is in fact asbestos. The surveyor can then assess its condition and advise on the next steps. Any business owner who fails to do this can be penalised by their local authority.
We regularly complete asbestos management surveys and the subsequent removals in and around the Fareham area. We can also undertake Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys if there is renovation work planned, to ensure no one is harmed by ACMs during the work.
