Asbestos removal is a vital service offered by A4 Asbestos as it acts as a lifeline for those that are looking to renovate their properties or if they’re just looking to gain peace of mind in their own homes. Asbestos can be a huge health hazard for those that are living/working around it, which further pushes the need to have it removed if it’s been discovered in a property that you’re working or living in.
Builders, mechanics & electricians & general tradesmen are always under threat of the potential risk of asbestos due to the nature of their work & the properties they may be working in. Asbestos exposure isn’t guaranteed but it is always a possibility for homes that were built during the ’70s & ’80s where asbestos was being used abundantly. It’s vital for those that are looking to renovate their home to ensure that their property is asbestos free and that it’s not posing a threat to anyone that is doing work or inhabiting the space.
Working with asbestos containing materials can impose serious health risks whether the products are damaged or whole. This particularly applies if the intention is to remove the asbestos containing materials as they could be damaged while being removed. Asbestos are the true threat as damaged materials that contain asbestos has the ability to release fibres which can then be inhaled. This poses a huge risk to those that are looking to dispose of or remove materials that contain asbestos themselves which is strongly ill-advised. The Health & Safety Executive strongly recommends using trained professionals to repair or remove ACMs.

If you are looking for an asbestos disposal service, it means that you have found asbestos or may think you have asbestos in your home. Because of the uncertainty asbestos brings and its lack of distinguishing features, asbestos needs to be tested in controlled conditions. Samples need to be taken for testing to find out whether or not you have asbestos in your property. Asbestos, when harmful is always broken down into micro-particles, so it really is invisible even to the trained eye. There are certain materials or products that contain asbestos, but in something like asbestos cement or asbestos lined paint, you really can’t tell until you have a sample tested.
Asbestos needs to be properly tested as you don’t want to waste time and money stripping your home of what you think is asbestos. This is where a provider like A4 Asbestos comes in as they are able to help you test and remove any asbestos you may be concerned about.
