Where is asbestos most commonly found around industrial properties?
Asbestos was used extensively in the UK for many years until the link to asbestos related diseases was found, and then it was gradually phased out until being fully banned from use in the UK in 1999.
Guidance from the HSE states about properties containing asbestos -
It was built before 2000, or you are unsure -
presume the building contains asbestos unless you know for sure it doesn't.
Due to how widely asbestos containing materials were used, because of their resistance to heat, as well as having good insulating properties, asbestos can be found across a wide variety of products within a property. Some common examples of where we find asbestos containing materials when carrying out an asbestos survey include -
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Asbestos cement sheets, as well as asbestos cement used on chimney flues, guttering and downpipes
- Lagging on boiler pipes, which is used to insulate them
- Sprayed on wall coatings
- Decorative coatings, such as Artex
- Wall cladding
- Panels in window frames and doors

Are BLS Asbestos qualified to remove licensable asbestos containing materials?
In short, yes.

Both of our licenses can be found here. Working with licensable asbestos is intensive work in areas where there are generally high volumes of asbestos fibres, which increases risk and is why we take regular health and safety guidance from official bodies such as -
