What does asbestos look like and is it likely to be in my property?
It is difficult to identify asbestos by looking at it and samples will always be sent away when having an asbestos survey conducted, to find out if the sample contains asbestos and if so, what type.
However, when conducting asbestos surveys we do come across asbestos containing materials in some common places, such as -
- Lagging on boilers and pipes
- Loose fill insulation
- Asbestos cement on roofs, guttering pipes and chimneys
- Panels in fire doors
- Asbestos insulation board as partition walls
- Floor and roof tiles
This list isn't all inclusive and asbestos containing materials can be found in many more places across an industrial property (like this visual demonstrates), however it does show how widely used it was in the construction industry for many years.
Asbestos was popular because it has excellent insulation properties and is heat resistant. But it was found to be linked to long term lung disease when breathed in over prolonged periods of time, which led to it being fully banned from use in the UK in 1999.
If you have any suspicions at all or would like peace of mind knowing that your property doesn't house asbestos containing materials then get in contact with us now and one of our asbestos experts will guide you through what your next steps should be.
What qualification do we have for removing asbestos containing materials in the UK?
We hold all the required licenses to work with, remove and safely transport licensable asbestos containing materials.
Licensable work with asbestos is the most dangerous form of asbestos removal because of the high level of asbestos fibres in the atmosphere. Our licenses for this can be seen here.
We take health and safety extremely seriously and work with the following bodies to ensure we are always operating to the highest of standards -
- Asbestos Removal Contractors Association
- The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents
We also hold certificates for ISO 45001, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, which can all be downloaded if required.
Please don't hesitate to get in contact with us through the contact form on this page or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you suspect your property in Darlington may have asbestos in or around it. One of our asbestos experts will get back to you as soon as possible with some questions and provide you with the best course of action for getting the asbestos containing materials safely removed.
