Water Tank & Flue Removal

If you think there may be asbestos in your water tank or flue, call Goodbye Asbestos for safe asbestos testing, removal and disposal.

Asbestos cement was widely used in water tanks and flues in the 60s, 70s and 80s, as it is strong, cheap, alkali-resistant and acid-resistant. When it was discovered in the mid-80s that asbestos can be dangerous when the dust or fibre particles are breathed in, the law banned the use of it in building materials.

But some homes and commercial spaces that were built before then still contain asbestos – whether in water tanks, flues, roofs, ceilings or floor tiles. If you are worried about asbestos in your property, you can invest in expert asbestos surveys and removal to rid your water tanks and flues of the potentially harmful substance.

Efficient asbestos testing

The Goodbye Asbestos team can visit your property and carry out thorough asbestos testing to assess the level and condition of the asbestos in your water tanks and flues. Asbestos is only harmful if it has been disturbed or broken – so, if there are cracks or signs of damage, then it will definitely need to be removed, and we will arrange for our team of experts to do this as soon as possible.

If you think there may be asbestos in your water tank or flue but are not sure, then the safest option is to contact the experts at Goodbye Asbestos, as we know exactly what to look for and have the professional equipment to carry out the test safely.

  • "Very professional and friendly service. Initialy spoke with Andy who gave us a quote and date for the work to be done. Chris and Jeff arrived on time and completely removed our garage although it was pouring with rain. They cleared all the rubbish and left the area clean. Would thoughly recomend this company. Work carried out in Crawley, West Sussex."

  • "Removed an asbestos garage roof, whole shed with asbestos roof, and then when there was further asbestos at the end of the garden took that too. Worked very hard solidly for two hours, loaded sheets, wore masks and suits. Great service and solved a big problem for me."

    Elizabeth Anderson
  • "I had 40 sqm of aertex ceiling removed in my house and the price came out as reasonable (particularly against 3 other quotes I had for the job). The job was completed in one day which I was chuffed with and the guys made sure that the house was safe for us to live in afterwards. Very happy with Goodbye Asbestos, would highly recommend."

    Olivia Lands
  • "I had my asbestos water tank removed from my loft in Croydon. Chris did a great job. They had about a weeks lead time. I needed this done ASAP and they were able to prioritise it and we booked it in next day. Thanks to Andy"

    Danny Williams
  • "Goodbye Asbestos provided a very polite and professional service on a pre-purchase where a suspicious material was identified by a surveyor. Tom gave us a quick turn around and timeframe and kept us updated throughout the process. Would highly recommend for a no fuss experience!"

    Elizabeth Packham
  • "Great service, friendly staff and competitive price. The asbestos was picked up by a diligent worker who came back and checked that there were no small bits on the ground. That really impressed me. Would recommend."

    James Goldbridge
  • "On finding Marley tiles on our floors we were in urgent need of having them removed. Goodbye Asbestos were amazing. They booked us in really quickly and on time, came and scraped up all the offending tiles and gripper rods. They disposed of the rubbish and sealed the under floor, leaving us ready for the laying of our new flooring. A job well done."

    Paul Tootill
  • "I have asked Goodbye Asbestos to remove my asbestos roof and replace it with insulated corrugated metal panels. I recommend them highly as I am very pleased with the quality of their workmanship, their attentive service and communications."

    Stefano Ferrari
  • "I have used Goodbye Asbestos twice, once removing an old asbestos shed and recently my large garage which had an asbestos roof. The guys are efficient, clean and friendly. All wear the appropriate clothing whilst handling the asbestos. Organising the quote and the demolition was easy. I'd highly recommend Goodbye Asbestos for any Asbestos removal you may require."

    Callum Stott
  • "I wanted to say a big thank you to Chris and the team for the superb job they did this morning in dismantling our horrible old asbestos/concrete garage! It was all done very quickly and professionally. They wore PPE and the asbestos roof panels were securely wrapped in plastic sheeting. The site was left clean and tidy afterwards. I also appreciated your sending me your waste licence and a copy of your insurance which was very reassuring as one reads some horror stories about waste disposal cowboys."
