Bonded Asbestos
What Is of Asbestos

Asbestos is a collective name for a group of six naturally occurring minerals.

These silicates are made of microscopic fibrous crystals that are light-weight and easy to breathe in. Asbestos is fireproof, resistant to heat or chemicals, and very strong, which made it an ideal material for building all kinds of structures.

These minerals were used in construction, manufacturing, aviation, and other such industries. Most governments have banned the use of asbestos to prevent related health conditions like lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

What Type of Asbestos
Residential Asbestos Removal
Asbestos was one of the most commonly used materials in residential construction until the 1980s. It was slowly phased out during the 80s and completely banned on the 31st of December, 2003.

If your home was built before this period, it likely has undisturbed asbestos. Most of the mineral is in a bonded form in structures like roofing, shingles, walls, fencing, etc. We have experience in removing all kinds of residential asbestos and will make sure the material is disposed of safely.

Commercial Asbestos Removal
Asbestos was used liberally in commercial properties until the mid-1980s. Everything from insulation and roofing to equipment and plumbing had some form of asbestos.

While developers have stopped using the material, most commercial properties built in the 50s and 60s have asbestos in them. As an experienced removal company, we know where to look for asbestos and how to assess the risk. Asbestos is relatively safe as long as it isn’t disturbed. But activities like renovation, demolition, or even drilling small holes in asbestos walls can release particles in the air. We carefully calculate the risk before recommending practical solutions.

Asbestos Wall Removal
Most sheetrock or drywall products manufactured between the 1940s and 19070s had asbestos in them. This material is bonded and doesn’t pose a danger unless it is disrupted.

If you plan to remove a few walls to open up floor space or demolish individual sections of the property, you need to be sure there’s no asbestos in the walls. Our experts will test these installations to determine if the minerals are present before recommending the right course of action. We will follow the local guidelines to ensure the walls are removed carefully.

Asbestos Ceiling & Roof Removal
Roofs are designed to last for several decades, so structures constructed around 30-40 years ago are still in a relatively sound condition. Shingles, eaves, roof insulation, and other such roof components in older properties often have asbestos in them.

As experienced removal experts, we know which features are most likely to contain these minerals and examine them.

Asbestos Consultancy Services
Most property owners don't know whether they need to get an asbestos inspection or hire professionals to remove traces of the minerals before carrying out any renovation project.

We offer expert consultancy services and will help you make the right decisions. Our experts will examine your property, take factors like the building’s age and location into consideration, before offering straightforward advice on how to deal with the problem.

Remediation of Contaminated Soil
Incorrect demolition or disposal practices can lead to soil contamination. Cleaning soil isn't as easy as removing asbestos features from walls or floors.

The presence of asbestos can affect the value of the land and put any future projects at risk. We carry out a thorough risk assessment before determining whether you need clean covers to create a barrier over the contaminated soil and a geotextile marker layer.

Process of Removing Asbestos
The process starts with a test and careful assessment. We take samples from different locations to determine if there’s any asbestos present. Our experts then consider whether they need asbestos encapsulation or abatement.

If it is bonded and the structure is in good shape, encapsulating the material with a strong barrier is sufficient. If it is friable and the structure is degenerating, you need to remove it from the property as it can release harmful fibres into the air.

Friable asbestos is in a loose, volatile form, which means the mineral fibres can enter the air easily. This form of asbestos requires careful handling because people can quickly inhale it. Only licensed and well-trained experts should handle or dispose of friable asbestos because they know the right techniques.
