We have been removing licensable asbestos and non-licensed asbestos from commercial and industrial property across Lancashire for over 20 years.

Asbestos was used widely across the construction sector up until it was gradually phased out and banned from use in the UK in 1999. This means that if your property was built or renovated before then it could have asbestos containing material in or around it that may need removing if it has been disturbed.

We have removed asbestos containing materials from a wide range of sectors (read our case studies), and have the knowledge and experience to work around your business, minimising any disruption to your day-to-day operations.

Examples of some of the sectors we have removed asbestos from include -

Where could asbestos be found in my industrial property in Lancaster?

Asbestos containing materials were widely used across the construction sector until they were fully banned from use in 1999, due to the adverse affects asbestos fibres pose to human health when breathed in. The NHS has more information on this.

Examples of some of the areas we commonly find asbestos containing materials when carrying out an an asbestos survey include -

  • Pipe lagging around boilers
  • Asbestos cement, which was commonly chimney flues, roofs, guttering and down pipes
  • Floor and ceiling tiles
  • Asbestos textured coating, which is commonly known as Artex
  • Roofing felt
