Where could I find asbestos within my commercial property in Runcorn?

If the property you own or manage was built before the year 2000 then you should assume it contains asbestos, as this was when it was made illegal for asbestos containing materials to be used within the construction of property in the UK.

There are two types of asbestos that need removing in the UK, and we would always recommend that asbestos removal is carried out by licensed professionals like BLS Asbestos. 

  1. Licensable asbestos removal - This is asbestos that is a significant risk to the public and is measured as being over 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3), averaged over a four hour period. A licence is required to remove this type of asbestos, which we hold.
  2. Non-licensable asbestos removal - This is asbestos that poses less risk to the public and measures under 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3), averaged over a four hour period. Even though a licence isn't required to remove this type of asbestos, we would always recommend an asbestos removal company carries out this work to protect the public from being exposed to any potentially harmful asbestos fibres.

Examples of what asbestos looks like can be found here, and here is where asbestos is commonly found within a commercial property.

Common areas we find asbestos containing materials when carrying out an asbestos survey include -

  • Asbestos cloth, rope and string
  • Asbestos cement sheets
  • Roof tiles and floor tiles
  • Mastics and sealants
  • Toilet cisterns
  • Posts and fencing
  • Planters
  • Lagging, which is used as pipe insulation
  • Asbestos cement as guttering, downpipes and chimneys
  • Doors with asbestos insulating board
