What Is Asbestos and Why Is It Dangerous?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in construction and manufacturing due to its fire-resistant and insulating properties. However, it is dangerous because when its tiny fibres are released into the air, they can be inhaled or ingested, leading to serious health risks.

Prolonged exposure to asbestos can cause severe lung diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. These diseases often have a long latency period, meaning symptoms may not manifest until years or even decades after exposure.

Do I Need to Have an Asbestos Survey Carried Out?

Yes, it is highly recommended to have an asbestos survey conducted, especially if you own or are responsible for a property built before the year 2000. Asbestos may be present in various forms within older buildings, and a professional survey is essential to identify its presence and assess the risk it poses.

A survey is also crucial for ensuring the safety of occupants and workers during any renovation or demolition work, as disturbing asbestos-containing materials without proper precautions can lead to serious health risks. To comply with regulations and protect everyone involved, it’s essential to have an asbestos survey carried out by a qualified expert.

Why Does Asbestos Need to Be Removed?

Asbestos needs to be removed primarily due to the severe health risks it poses. When asbestos-containing materials deteriorate or are disturbed, they release microscopic fibres into the air. Inhaling these asbestos fibres can lead to serious health issues, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

Asbestos removal is essential to eliminate these hazards and protect occupants’ health. Additionally, regulations and legislation require the safe removal and disposal of asbestos to prevent environmental contamination.

What Is the Difference Between Removal and Encapsulation?

The key difference between asbestos removal and encapsulation lies in the approach to dealing with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). Asbestos removal involves physically eliminating the ACMs from the premises. This process is often necessary when the materials are severely damaged or deteriorating, posing a higher risk of asbestos fibres becoming airborne.

On the other hand, encapsulation is a method of containing the asbestos fibres within the material by applying a sealant or coating. This approach is typically chosen when the ACMs are in good condition and removing them would be more hazardous or expensive. Both methods aim to minimise asbestos exposure and risk.

In addition to asbestos removal, we provide a range of other asbestos services to meet your specific needs. Our services include comprehensive asbestos surveys and asbestos sample analysis.

Asbestos Surveys

We offer two types of asbestos survey, tailored to meet your specific requirements:

  1. Asbestos Management Survey: This survey is designed to assess and manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within your property. Our licensed professionals inspect your premises to identify any potential ACMs, assessing their condition and risk.
  2. Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys: When you’re planning refurbishments or demolition work, this survey is essential. It involves a thorough examination of the entire property to identify and locate any ACMs that may be disturbed during the construction process.

Asbestos Testing

Our asbestos testing services are a crucial step in identifying the specific type of asbestos present in your property. When asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are suspected, our licensed professionals perform thorough testing to determine the exact type of asbestos.
