We specialise in asbestos removal within commercial and industrial settings, such as -
- Manufacturing and FMCG environments

You can read more about some of the sectors that we regularly remove asbestos from here however if you do suspect you have asbestos in your commercial or industrial property then you should get in touch with us, so we can provide an asbestos survey and also provide a quote for the safe and effective removal of the asbestos from your property in Wetherby.
What are the common areas where asbestos is found around commercial properties?
Asbestos was used extensively across the construction industry until it was banned from use in 1999. Asbestos has excellent insulating and fire resistant properties, which is why it was so popular. Some of the areas around a property we commonly find it when carrying out an asbestos survey include -
- Ceiling & floor tiles
- Asbestos cement sheets
- Lagging, which is commonly found insulating boilers and pipes
- Sprayed on wall coatings
- Decorative coatings on walls and ceilings, which is also know as Artex
- Cladding on the outside of buildings
- Asbestos cement used on chimney flues and guttering
This visual from the HSE website is good for showing how diversely asbestos was used across properties. If your property in Wetherby was built or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could still house asbestos containing materials.
For more guidance on what asbestos looks like then please get in touch with us and we can provide guidance, as well as provide an asbestos survey to clarify if/what type of asbestos is within the property, before carrying out an asbestos removal project.
