Asbestos Removal in Residential Properties

Many homes built pre 1999 still contain large amounts of asbestos. If you have found any traces of asbestos within your residential property, we can help find the best solution for removal or encapsulation (making safe) for you and your home.

Many homes have asbestos present, and this can be found within a huge variety of forms and locations. Many of these are unexpected and may go unnoticed for many years. For a full list of potential asbestos locations please see the blog post here. Before the Asbestos Prohibitions Amendment act was signed in 1999, it was used for many things due to the strong, highly heat-resistant properties. To find out more about asbestos please click here.

If you come across asbestos within your home, we are able to provide removal and encapsulation services to manage the risk of asbestos and ensure the safety of the occupying residents. There are many cases where asbestos will be safe if undisturbed and in good condition, therefore if this is relevant to your case we will be honest in telling you so. Before works can commence we usually require a survey to prove the material contains asbestos fibres & which type it contains.

Our removal works will cause as little disruption as physically possible and we always aim to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as we can.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most common questions we get asked are answered below for you! For further information give us a...

Q: How long will it take for you to remove asbestos?

Each case is treated as an individual job, so the delivery time is dependant upon many factors. Our Contracts Managers will advise you of this at the quotation point. If the works are notifiable to the HSE, they will be subject to a minimum 14 day notification period, plus our in-house preparation.

Q: How many types of asbestos are there?

Asbestos has two sub-categories; Serpentine and Amphibole, defined by their difference in fibre qualities. In the Serpentine category is Chrysotile (also known as White asbestos) with S-shaped fibres. In the Amphibole category is; Crocidolite (Blue asbestos), Amosite (Brown asbestos) and also lesser-known Anthophyllite, Tremolite and Actinolite, all with straight fibres.

Q: What should I do if I find asbestos?

Before removals can take place, the type of asbestos needs to be identified with an independent surveyor to determine the exact properties. Never attempt to remove it yourself, and call a professional such as ourselves. If it is in bad condition it may be treated as an urgent matter.
