We strive to work around the needs of your business or project, ensuring your normal daily operations are as minimally disrupted as possible.
Is it likely for asbestos to still be in my property when it was banned years ago?
Asbestos was fully banned from use in the UK in 1999.
This means that if your property in Knutsford was built or renovated before the year 2000 then it is likely that it could contain asbestos.
If the asbestos remains undisturbed then it poses little risk to anyone, however we would always recommend that you get a professional asbestos removal company like ourselves, to safely remove and legally dispose of the asbestos containing materials.
Some of the areas we regularly come across asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey are -
- Loose fill insulation
- Asbestos insulation board (AIB)
- Sprayed on coating
- Guttering and down pipes
- Chimney flues
- Partition board
- Panels in doors and window frames
- Lagging on boilers and pipes
- Floor and roof tiles
A graphic on the HSE website shows just how widely asbestos was used across industrial and residential properties.
It can sometimes be difficult to understand what is asbestos and what isn't. If you are unsure then give us a call on 01484 400558 and one of our asbestos removal specialists will be able to guide you further on whether your property may house asbestos containing materials.
