If you suspect that you have asbestos in or around your commercial or industrial property in Prescot then get in touch with us and we can provide an asbestos survey before taking any extra steps, such as removing the asbestos if it shows up from the survey.

What does asbestos look like?

Due to the fact that asbestos was used widely across the construction sector until it was fully banned from use in the UK in 1999, it can be found in many guises. A good page of how it can appear in or around a property can be found here. However, it is best not to second guess this and get an asbestos removal expert in to assess where the asbestos resides in your property before creating and executing an asbestos removal plan.

Common examples of where we find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey include - 

  • Asbestos lagging around pipes and boilers
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Asbestos cement which can be found on chimney flues, guttering and downpipes
  • Asbestos insulation board within partition walls and fire doors
  • Asbestos insulation board window panelling
  • Asbestos rope

The HSE states that "if you are a building owner, and/or are responsible for the maintenance or repair of non-domestic premises, you have a duty to manage any asbestos in that building".

If your property in Prescot was constructed before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could contain asbestos in and around the building. Get in contact with one of our asbestos removal specialists for more information on what you should do next.
