How Can We Manage Asbestos Containing Materials For You?

Asbestos Encapsulation

Removing asbestos containing materials from a property or site is not always the best option and encapsulating the asbestos can be a better solution. 

If the asbestos containing materials are not disturbed then we can encapsulate them with a protective layer, which is designed to prevent asbestos fibres from being damaged and getting released into the local atmosphere.

Asbestos encapsulation is ideal for ensuring your business remains operational whilst the work is being done, primarily because we are not disturbing the asbestos and not making the local working area hazardous.

Asbestos Removal

Asbestos removal means that all asbestos containing materials in or around the property and fully removed.

Asbestos removal is very careful and skilled work that is designed to fully remove the asbestos containing materials and remove the risk that the asbestos fibres pose to anyone that comes into contact with the area where the asbestos was.

We provide this solution when encapsulation isn't an option. It can be dangerous work due to the high levels of asbestos fibres that are present when it is a licensable job. We perform asbestos removal very carefully and this is why we take health and safety extremely seriously, getting regular guidance and updates from -
