Situated only 30 minutes away from Rochdale, BLS Asbestos are a professional asbestos removal company that also carry out asbestos surveys.
What does asbestos look like and where could I find it in my property?
Products which contain asbestos are known as an 'asbestos containing material' and can be found in many places within a property. It was used in renovations and the construction of new properties for its resistance to heat and fire until it was banned in 1999. Examples of where you could find asbestos in your property include -
- Asbestos cement that could be used on a water tank
- Lagging, which is used as insulation on boilers and pipes
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Panels in fire doors
- Downpipes and guttering
We have created a page on common asbestos related questions and places where we regularly remove it from in commercial properties and the HSE have created a visual guide which highlights where you can find asbestos both internally and externally.
If you suspect that you have asbestos in your property then you shouldn't disturb it and get in touch with us, as we can safely provide an asbestos survey to clarify whether you do have any asbestos containing materials in your Rochdale property before carrying out an asbestos removal project.
