If you suspect your commercial or industrial property in Scarborough may have asbestos in it that needs removing, then get in contact with us through the form on this page and one of our asbestos removal specialists will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Can asbestos containing materials be on the outside of my property as well inside?

Because asbestos has a high level of heat resistance, as well as being an excellent insulator, it meant that it was used extensively (internally and externally on properties) across the construction sector in the UK, until it was fully banned from use in 1999, because of its known association with long term lung diseases.

Examples of some of the common areas where you might find asbestos at your industrial property include - 


  • Lagging, which is used as insulation on boilers and pipes
  • Ceiling and floor tiles
  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos textured coating (Artex)
  • Wallboards
  • Asbestos panels in doors


  • Asbestos cement that could be used on the roof, chimney flues, guttering and down pipes
  • Soffits

The above are just a few of the common examples where we find asbestos containing materials and this page on the HSE website provides further examples, as well as visuals to help you identify if it is asbestos in or around your property.

It is always best practice to have a professional company like ourselves identify and then safely remove asbestos. Get in touch with us and we can provide an asbestos survey to determine if you do have asbestos in or around your property before removing the asbestos if required.

Health and safety requirements for removing licensable asbestos from commercial properties?

The removal of licensable asbestos requires certain licenses to be held by the asbestos removal company, due to the hazards this type of asbestos can pose to human life if disturbed.

We hold a license to work with asbestos and asbestos insulation board (AIB), as well as a license to transport asbestos for the purpose of safe disposal. Read more about these licenses here.

In addition, we take health and safety extremely seriously, which is why we also hold the following memberships -
