We have been removing licensable asbestos from industrial locations around Coventry for over 20 years.

Examples of some of the sectors we commonly work to remove asbestos from are -

  • NHS and medical property
  • Warehouses
  • FMCG facilities
  • Schools, colleges and universities
  • Prisons
  • Demolition sites
  • Renovations
  • Public sector buildings
  • Retail outlets

Working on licensable asbestos removal is the most dangerous type of asbestos removal work and should always be carried out by a licensed asbestos removal company like ourselves.

Licensable asbestos removal work is described as - 

  • Where worker exposure to asbestos is not sporadic and of low intensity; or
  • Where the risk assessment cannot clearly demonstrate that the control limit will not be exceeded ie 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3) (averaged over a four hour period); or
  • On asbestos coating; or
  • On asbestos insulation or asbestos insulating board where the risk assessment demonstrates that the work is not short duration work, eg when work with these materials will take no more than two hours in any seven day period, and no one person works for more than one hour in that two hour period.

Get in contact with us now and one of our asbestos removal experts can provide a quote for asbestos removal, an asbestos survey or to give you guidance on what options you have if you think you may have asbestos containing materials in or around your property in Coventry.

Am I likely to have asbestos in my property that would require licensable removal work?

Asbestos containing materials weren't fully banned from use in the UK until 1999, which means that if your property was constructed or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could house asbestos. The only way to absolutely determine whether asbestos is present is to have an asbestos survey conducted, which will show where the asbestos is (if there is any), and also what type of asbestos is present.

Please get in touch and we can carry out an asbestos survey for you on your property in Coventry.

Asbestos can be found all over an industrial property, however some examples of where we regularly come across it includes -

  • Downpipes, chimney flues and guttering
  • Floor and ceiling tiles
  • Loose fill insulation
  • Lagging, which is usually found insulating pipes and boilers
  • Wallboards
  • Asbestos insulation board, also known as AIB
  • Panels in fire doors and window frames

The HSE has a visual showing how wide spread asbestos can be in a property. If you suspect you have asbestos in your property then you should always ensure that a professional asbestos removal company like BLS Asbestos removes it for you, rather than endangering yourself and others by disturbing the asbestos fibres.

We are licensed to work with all forms of asbestos containing materials and also have a license to transport them for safe disposal. More about our licenses can be read here
