Professional Asbestos Removal

Professional Asbestos Removal is the process of safely removing asbestos in accordance with Health & Safety Executive Regulations and Guidelines. As a licensed asbestos contractor, AAS Ltd have the skills and expertise to ensure that any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are removed in a safe and correct manner. This includes undertaking licensed asbestos work.

Professional Asbestos Removal may be required in any building constructed between 1930 and November 1999 as asbestos was widely used in building construction during these year. Some types of asbestos (such as asbestos insulation board and flock) are extremely hazardous to health and the dismantling and removal of asbestos containing products should only be carried out by a licensed, professional company.

Asbestos containing waste must be disposed of correctly by a licensed waste carrier and should never be placed in domestic waste. It’s not always easy to spot hidden asbestos in areas that you don’t realise, and as asbestos ages it may degrade into more friable asbestos. The transportation and disposal of asbestos containing materials and is also a regulated activity.

Notifiable and Non-Notifiable Professional Asbestos Removal

As a licensed asbestos contractor we are able to carry out both notifiable and non-notifiable asbestos products.

Notifiable asbestos products are those which can only be removed with prior notification to the Health & Safety Executive, usually 14 days prior to works commencing (there are some exceptions to this rule). These products include Asbestos Insulating Board and limpet.

Non-notifiable products are those which can be removed without notifying the Health & Safety Executive such as asbestos cement.

 

Asbestos Removal isn’t always Necessary

It’s not always necessary to remove asbestos containing materials. Sometimes it may be most cost effective and safer to carry out asbestos encapsulation or to manage asbestos in situ. Asbestos encapsulation can be carried out instead of removal using specialist paints and materials to create a barrier to the outside atmosphere.

 

How much does asbestos removal cost?

The cost for removing asbestos usually depends on three main factors: the type of asbestos, the time it will take to remove the asbestos and the amount of waste which will be produced. Whilst we are usually able to provide a quotation for the removal of common materials it may be necessary for us to visit the premises to carry out a more detailed inspection.

Domestic customers can visit our asbestos removal cost page for a guide. Commercial customers should contact us to discuss their requirements.

 

I’ve heard that my local council will carry out asbestos removal for me. Is this true?

No local authority carries out Professional Asbestos Removal. Whilst some may collect small amounts of asbestos waste they will only collect bonded materials such as asbestos cement and most charge for this service.
