Asbestos Removal is the process of safely removing asbestos in accordance with Health & Safety Executive Regulations and Guidelines. It may refer to removal of asbestos cement products, AIB removal or a range of other products including floor tiles, ropes, adhesives, flocks and limpet. It may also refer to textured coatings (artex), toilet cisterns, bath panels, sink pads, rainwater goods, soffits, boiler flues, boiler pads, insulation, vermiculite, water tanks, to name but a few.
Removal of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) is regulated by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, which outlines the processes for the safe removal and management of any ACM’s. Asbestos Removal may be required in any building constructed prior to 2000, which may potentially contain asbestos products. It should always be assumed that materials contain asbestos unless it can be proven by a specialist that the material is asbestos free. 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. We provide a full range of asbestos removal services including licensed and non-licensed contracts.
It is also vital that any asbestos containing waste is disposed of correctly. 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 is also a regulated activity.
It’s not always necessary to remove asbestos containing materials. Sometimes it may be most cost effective and safer to carry out asbestos encapsulation 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.

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.
