What Is Asbestos?

Everyone has heard of asbestos, but many people remain unaware of what exactly it is. Well, asbestos is a naturally occurring fibre, of which there are actually six types. All of these are composed of long, thin fibrous crystals, which in turn are made up of many microscopic fibrils. It is these fibrils which can become airborne when the asbestos is disturbed and, if breathed into the lungs, they can cause serious, sometimes fatal, health issues.

When it was found that asbestos was resistant to heat, electricity, and corrosion, it was widely used in construction projects, such as for insulation in properties. It was used until the late 1990s when it was realised to be a dangerous material. However, many older properties still have asbestos present.

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

While you may have heard of asbestos removal, Portsmouth clients, there is another method of dealing with asbestos, and that is asbestos encapsulation. Asbestos removal is where the asbestos is fully removed from the property, as it is too damaged or likely to become damaged.

Asbestos encapsulation, however, doesn’t involve the removal of asbestos-containing materials. We use this method when the asbestos is only slightly damaged and where it isn’t at risk of becoming dangerous. With this method, we install a protective layer over the asbestos, effectively containing the fibres. So, while asbestos will still be present, it won’t pose a danger.

What Is the Asbestos Removal Process?

The asbestos removal process is extensive, and for a good reason. We need to determine the type of asbestos we are dealing with and the best way to handle it, as this ensures everyone’s safety. This is why we always start a removal service with an asbestos survey.

With an asbestos survey, we can inspect your property for asbestos-containing materials, determining where they are located and what condition they are in. Once we have located asbestos, we will undertake a process called sample analysis, where we can identify the specific type of asbestos. This helps us determine the right course of action for asbestos removal, Portsmouth clients.

Once we have this information, we will be able to decide between asbestos removal and asbestos encapsulation. In most cases, we will opt for removal, and our team will handle this safely and correctly. We will carefully remove all asbestos-containing materials and have them disposed of in line with regulations.


Why You May Need Asbestos Removal

If you suspect there is asbestos in your property, you might be wondering whether you actually need to have asbestos removal carried out. Here at Astech Environmental Ltd, we always recommend having the asbestos looked at by our qualified team.

We can determine whether it is safe to leave in place or whether it needs to be removed. If the asbestos is in an area that is likely to be disturbed, or you are planning a renovation or other construction project, it will need to be removed.

You might be unsure as to whether asbestos is even present on your property. Well, if your property was built before the year 2000, chances are high that there is some asbestos in the property. Again, get in touch with our team, and we can determine this for you.

Other Asbestos Services That We Can Assist With

Here at Astech Environmental Ltd, we can offer more than just asbestos removal in Portsmouth. You can also rely on our team for many other asbestos services, and some non-asbestos services, including:

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys

We offer many types of asbestos surveys here at Astech Environmental Ltd, one of which is the refurbishment and demolition survey. This is a specific type of asbestos survey that we carry out in properties that are due to undergo construction or demolition. These types of services can damage and disturb asbestos, which can be hazardous to health, so it is important to identify any asbestos-containing materials first.

Our refurbishment and demolition surveys are destructive, as we need to get into every nook and cranny of the property to locate asbestos. As such, we only carry these surveys out on empty properties. However, once we have completed the survey and removed the asbestos, you are clear to go ahead with your refurbishment or demolition project.

Asbestos Sample Analysis

We touched on this above, but one service we offer as part of our asbestos management service is asbestos sample analysis. This is a process where we take samples of the asbestos located, send them to our lab, and determine the exact type of asbestos it is. This helps up come up with a bespoke plan of action for removing it.

Bacteria Cleaning

One service we offer outside of asbestos services is bacteria cleaning. When COVID-19 hit, the need to thoroughly cleanse and sanitise public environments became more important than ever. We use specialised chemicals and equipment to sanitise a range of different public environments, reducing the spread of the virus and keeping everyone healthier.

We can cleanse and sanitise:

  • Hospitals/Care Homes
  • Schools
  • Hotels
  • Leisure Centres
  • Shopping Centres
  • Restaurants
  • Public Transport
  • And More
