DOMESTIC ASBESTOS REMOVAL

Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was a cheap and readily available insulating material used extensively by the construction industry. There was scant awareness of the dangers to health posed by asbestos until the 1980s. Conclusive evidence demonstrating the hazardous nature of the material finally led to it being banned for use in 1999.

Despite the ban, asbestos remains very much a danger to be dealt with. Watford houses built prior to 1999 potentially contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in, for example, tiles, lagging, and corrugated roofing. If you’re buying or selling a property built before 1999, it’s important to know whether asbestos was used in its construction.

Amianto provides prompt, non-intrusive asbestos surveys. If we find hazardous asbestos, we can arrange for its safe removal and disposal. If you’re worried your Watford property may contain asbestos, call Amianto on 01707 707050 for local asbestos services.

Asbestos removals specialists are accredited by the HSE. This ensures that they have the appropriate qualifications, skills and experience to work in close contact with this extremely dangerous material.

COMMERCIAL ASBESTOS REMOVAL

Asbestos exposure and inhalation can cause asbestosis, pleural effusions, lung cancer or mesothelioma. It remains the biggest occupational health danger and there are still 5,000 asbestos related deaths reported each year.

If you own or manage commercial premises built in the 20th century, you have a legal responsibility to find out if Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) were used in its construction. Amianto commercial asbestos surveys provide a thorough, non-intrusive survey. If we find hazardous asbestos, Amianto can manage its removal and safe disposal.

Amianto provides surveys, asbestos risk assessment and management, and safe asbestos removals for Watford commercial premises. Call us on 01707 707050 for local asbestos services.

ASBESTOS SURVEYS

A proportion of Watford properties that were built prior to 1999, will contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). In many cases the asbestos will prove to be inert. This means that the ACMs are undamaged, and are therefore unlikely to be a danger to health. If asbestos is disturbed, however, the risk of microscopic fibres becoming airborne is high, making it a hazard. Amianto provides comprehensive asbestos surveys on Watford homes and commercial premises. An asbestos survey determines whether ACMs are present, and their condition.

REFURBISHMENT & DEMOLITION SURVEYS

If you’re planning refurbishment, or demolition of Watford commercial premises, you are required by law to carry out an asbestos survey. The process is intrusive and destructive in order to thoroughly assess the presence of ACMs. Once completed, Amianto asbestos removal specialists will manage the safe removal and disposal of asbestos.

Our services include:

  1. Surveys & Testing. Amianto 3rd party consultants carry out appropriate testing in homes and commercial premises.
  2. Risk Assessment & Management. If asbestos is discovered in an inert state, a risk assessment will be carried out. Amianto specialists can help clients to create a management plan for ongoing monitoring.
  3. Removal and Monitoring. If hazardous asbestos is discovered, the site will be immediately cleared and carefully sealed. Leak testing will check the seal integrity throughout asbestos removal.
  4. Post Removal Monitoring. Once the asbestos is removed, Amianto will carry out post removal testing. This includes a detailed visual inspection of the site, and air monitoring to check that it’s safe to remove the seal.
