What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material. It is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral, of which there are six types. All six types are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, and each fibre is composed of many microscopic fibrils. If these fibrils are damaged or disturbed and released into the atmosphere, they can be breathed into the lungs and cause serious health issues.

There are three types of asbestos most prevalent in the UK, and these are blue (crocidolite), brown (amosite), and white (chrysotile). Asbestos is heat resistant, which meant that it was widely used in the construction industry until the late 1990s, when the full dangers of asbestos were finally understood.

As such, while it is now banned from use, asbestos is still prevalent in many older homes.

What Is Asbestos Encapsulation and How Is It Different to Asbestos Removal?

When asbestos has been identified in your property, there are two methods for handling it – asbestos removal and asbestos encapsulation. The most well-known method for dealing with asbestos in a property is through removal, but encapsulation is a method that is less well-known, but often used.

While asbestos removal involves the complete removal of any asbestos containing materials that pose a hazard to health, asbestos encapsulation doesn’t involve the removal of the asbestos containing materials.

If we deem that the asbestos in a property isn’t a danger, so not likely to be disturbed or damaged, we will carry out asbestos encapsulation. This involves installing a protective layer over the asbestos and keeping it in place, rather than removing it. The asbestos will need to be regularly inspected but is safe to stay in place with the protective layer.

What Is the Asbestos Removal Process?

The asbestos removal process actually involves a three-step process which starts with a survey. Before we can begin to remove any asbestos in your property, we first need to determine whether asbestos is present and, if so, where it is and what condition it is in. We achieve this through a survey of your property, where we write up a full report detailing where the asbestos is and the condition it is in, alongside photographic evidence.

From there, we will need to carry out sample analysis, using samples of the asbestos taken from your property. By doing this, we can determine the exact type of asbestos it is, and this helps us come up with a plan of action. We can then decide how best to remove the asbestos, or whether encapsulation is the right method.

With asbestos removal, we will work safely to remove all asbestos in your property and have it disposed of correctly and legally.

Why You May Need Asbestos Removal

You might find yourself wondering if you even need asbestos removal in the first place. Well, if you know there is asbestos in your property, you will need to have it looked at by an expert team. While it might not warrant removal if we can encapsulate it, the asbestos will still need to be taken care of by our team. If the asbestos is damaged, or is likely to be damaged and disturbed, it will need to be removed.

If you are unsure as to whether there is asbestos in your property, it is always worth having it checked out if your property was built pre-2000, as asbestos was used in construction until the late 90s.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys

Before we can carry out any asbestos removal, Guildford clients, we must first carry out an asbestos survey. We offer a range of asbestos survey types, as no two buildings or requirements are the same. We offer standard asbestos surveys that we carry out on normal properties, and our re-inspection surveys which are carried out to keep an eye on already identified asbestos. However, we can also offer refurbishment and demolition surveys.

These are surveys that are tailored to properties which are about to undergo construction or demolition work. This work is highly destructive and, if asbestos is in the property, this work can damage the asbestos, making it airborne and hazardous. So, before any work is carried out, you need to make sure the property is free from asbestos through a survey.

Asbestos Sample Analysis

We mentioned sample analysis above as the second step in the asbestos management process. Sample analysis is carried out after a survey has identified asbestos. We take a sample of the asbestos and send it to our lab for analysis. Our experts can identify the type of asbestos it is, which helps us plan the asbestos removal.

Bacteria Cleaning

Ensuring your property is hygienic has always been important, but it has never been more so than since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020. We offer bacteria cleaning services, where we use special equipment and cleaning materials to fully sanitise your property from top to bottom.
