Is it likely that the property I own or manage could house asbestos?

Asbestos containing materials were used widely across the construction sector in the UK for many years. However, they were fully banned from use by 1999 due to asbestos causing long term lung disease in humans who had high levels of exposure to it.

This means that if your property in Romford was built or renovated before the year 2000 then it could potentially contain asbestos in or around it.

Examples of some of the common places we find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey are - 

  • Asbestos insulation board (AIB)
  • Loose fill asbestos insulation
  • Partition walls
  • Fire doors
  • Lagging on boilers and pipes
  • Asbestos cement

We have a more in depth list of where you can find asbestos in your property and the HSE does a good job of visualising it.

Can anyone remove asbestos?

Anyone can remove asbestos unless it requires licensable work (more about this here) due to the dangers posed from disturbing the asbestos.

We would always recommend hiring an asbestos removal company to remove any type of asbestos though and highly recommend you leave it to a professional company like ourselves rather than endanger yourself.

We hold accreditations to work on licensable asbestos removal, as well as a license to transport hazardous waste for disposal. Our licenses can be read about in more detail here.

Working with asbestos containing materials is dangerous work, which is why we take continual guidance from bodies such as -

  • Asbestos Removal Contractors Association
  • The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents
  • SafeContractor
  • Constructionline
