We have been removing licensable asbestos from commercial and industrial properties around Battersea and Wandsworth for over 20 years.
Working to remove licensable asbestos is dangerous work due to the high levels of asbestos fibres that can be present in the atmosphere (read more about this). That's why the following companies have trusted us to safely remove asbestos containing materials from their properties -
- The Royal Air Force
- Sports Direct (case study)
- The Co-Operative
We work across a wide range of sectors that include -
- The high street and out-of-town shopping centres
- Demolition projects
- Public sector

Where could I find asbestos in my industrial or commercial property?
Asbestos containing materials can be found all over a property, both internally and externally. This is because asbestos is heat resistant and great at insulating and was used for a long time in the construction sector in the UK, until it was fully banned from use in 1999.
This means that if your property was built or renovated before the year 2000 then it could house asbestos. The best way to know whether there is asbestos in your property is to have an asbestos survey conducted, which BLS Asbestos can carry out.
Some common examples of where we commonly find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey include -
- Asbestos cement, which is most commonly found on the exterior of properties
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Lagging around boilers and pipes
- Panels in fire doors, as well as window frames
- Asbestos cloth, rope and string
- Partition walls which have used asbestos insulation board (AIB)
- Toilet cisterns
- Loose fill insulation
The above is only a quick rundown of where we regularly find asbestos, although there are many more locations. This graphic shows where asbestos can be found in industrial and residential properties, and we also have a more comprehensive list.
It is important that you get in touch with a specialist asbestos removal company like ourselves, who operate in Battersea, as well as London, if you want asbestos removing from your property rather than looking to carry out the dangerous job yourself.
License to work with asbestos insulation and asbestos insulation board
Working with licensable asbestos is the most dangerous asbestos work due to the potentially high levels of asbestos fibres in the local atmosphere.
We have a license to work with asbestos insulation and asbestos insulation board (AIB) for the purpose of removal, as well as a license to safely transport asbestos for disposal. These can be seen here.
We take health and safety very seriously and are always wanting to learn more about how we can best protect our staff, customers and the general public. To ensure we are always at the forefront of the industry, we take guidance from several bodies -
- Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme
- Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents
- Asbestos Removal Contractors Association
