In addition to these two primary licenses, we also go above and beyond to give all of our customers complete confidence in our procedures by holding the Site Audit Accreditation Scheme, presented to us by ARCA, as well as the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme accreditation to highlight our commitment of working to the highest levels of health and safety.
What does asbestos look like?
Identifying asbestos can be challenging because it appears in so many different products, which is why a licensed asbestos expert should carry out a survey of where asbestos is suspected to be. Asbestos can be present in any property built or renovated before the year 2000 and examples of some of the places it can be found include -
- Cement sheets and roof tiles
- Wall boards and ceiling tiles
- Floor tiles
- Mastics and sealants
- Toilet cisterns
- Lagging and insulation
