We remove licensable asbestos from commercial and industrial properties across Bakewell.
What is licensable asbestos?
Licensable asbestos removal work involves a licensed asbestos removal company like ourselves removing the asbestos containing materials.
This is because the asbestos that needs removing -
- Will provide high exposure to those removing it.
- Is asbestos insulation board or asbestos insulation.
- Involves an asbestos coating.
- Is not short duration work.
The HSE has a page that goes into depth on licensable asbestos removal work.
Industrial properties can have high levels of asbestos present within the building, simply because of their age. Any property that was built or renovated before the year 2000 should be assumed to contain asbestos. This is because using asbestos in the construction sector wasn't fully banned until 1999 in the UK.
If you suspect you have asbestos containing materials in or around your property in Bakewell then get in contact with us now and we can provide a quote for its removal.
Where can I find asbestos in my property?
Asbestos containing materials were used widely for decades across the construction sector due to their excellent heat/fire resistance properties.

- Guttering and down pipes
- Chimney flues
