RG12 asbestos removal: Why are they important?
Asbestos is a hazardous substance and is still thought to be responsible for thousands of deaths every year. When asbestos fibres, that cannot be seen with the naked eye, are inhaled into the lungs, this can result in asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
Asbestos that is in a good condition does not always need to be removed and can be managed but if asbestos is damaged, it will pose a threat. In garages, for example, signs could include leaks, split or broken roof sheets, mould on the roof, split or broken tiles, or missing roof sheets. If we remove your garage roof, we can re-roof it with advanced fibreglass roofing, which is strong and robust.
We can come and inspect your asbestos structure in Wokingham and advise you regarding the best steps forward.
Asbestos Management Surveys in Wokingham
Do you need to identify if asbestos is present in your Wokingham property? We can complete asbestos sampling and testing and asbestos surveys. In asbestos sampling, our asbestos operatives can take a small sample, or multiple samples, and send them off to an accredited laboratory for testing.
The three main types of asbestos are white asbestos (chrysotile), blue asbestos (crocidolite), and brown asbestos (amosite). This test will be able to identify what type of asbestos it is and the extent of this asbestos.
We can also provide thorough asbestos surveys and asbestos safety including Asbestos Management Surveys and Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys. If you are a duty holder, it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with the requirements of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
