Asbestos Removals in Essex
Asbestos is a common building material, found in many homes built during the mid-20th century, and especially in homes built in the 1970s around the Essex area. Asbestos is now know to be a potentially dangerous substance, and the government and health organisations advise that it is removed whenever it is identified in domestic properties as soon as is possible to minimise potentially harmful contact.
Asbestos Removals in Essex
If you have found asbestos in your home, then your first action should be to call a professional asbestos removal company, such as Amianto. Absestos is now classified as a ‘known human carcinogen’, meaning that it is hazardous to human health. Professionals such as Amianto utilise special handling and removal techniques to safely and effectively remove hazardous material from your home, keeping you and your family safe from harm.
Professional Asbestos Removal in Essex
Amianto employs a three-fold approach to dealing with Essex asbestos removals:
- Identify properties that may be at risk of contamination due to their age, location and construction type
- Locate the placement and type of suspected Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) used, and extent of the contamination
- Remove all traces of the ACMs using a four-part removal process that meets rigorous health and safety regulations and legal requirements, ensuring resident safety at all times
Asbestos was not outlawed for use in the construction industry until the year 2000 and as such can be found in many commercial buildings. Exposure to Asbestos Containing Materials causes an estimated 5000 deaths every year. It is vital that asbestos is removed from commercial properties as soon as it is identified, to safeguard the health of employees, customers and all service users who utilise the building. As one of the top Essex asbestos removal companies, we are uniquely placed to help you with all your asbestos identification and removal.
Commercial Asbestos Removal in Essex
If you have any concerns that your commercial premises may contain asbestos, or that asbestos has been identified in your property, then it is vital that an asbestos removal contractor is contacted immediately to inspect the property. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious and life-threatening damage to health, and has been identified as responsible for the formation of certain cancers that affect the lungs, heart and abdomen. As a business owner who maintains a commercial space, the health and wellbeing of your customers and employees is your responsibility, and ignoring their exposure to asbestos is negligent.
Asbestos can be found in a number of different places around commercial buildings, including roof structures, cavity walls, insulation boards, cement floors, pipe work, and guttering. Asbestos fibres are very fine, and may not be visible to the naked eye, which is why it is vital that you contact a professional Essex-based asbestos removal company to assess your property as soon as possible.
Amianto are licenced asbestos removal contractors, and can remove and dispose of any asbestos identified in your property. We offer professional licenced asbestos removal throughout Essex, and can assist you with the identification of any Asbestos Containing Materials within your commercial space by investigating the building’s age, location, and type of construction in order to identity any and all ACMs within the premises. If we discover any asbestos we remove all traces of it, using a four-stage process that meets all regulations and legal requirements, including those found in the Control of Asbestos Regulations act, 2012.
The presence of asbestos in a property can seriously affect the health of anyone using the premises, especially if it is disturbed or damaged. The best way to identify if your property contains asbestos is to appoint an asbestos survey, which will help you to pinpoint the precise location and extent of any suspected Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).
