What actually is asbestos?
Asbestos is a group of six extremely harmful substances. These substances take the form of tiny, airborne microfibres which can cause irreversible damage to the lungs once inhaled. Asbestos inhalation can lead to any one of the following diseases: mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, pleural plaques and pleural thickening.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, there are currently over 5,000 asbestos-related deaths per year.
Where is asbestos found?
Before the year 2000, asbestos was used in the construction of houses in the UK. This is because it had a number of useful properties for building. It was resistant to heat, chemicals and electricity. It was most commonly used in the form of a spray which was applied as a coating on walls, ceilings and garage roofs.
It could have also been tightly packaged up and used for fireproofing, sound absorption and insulation. Because of this, houses built before the year 2000 may well have asbestos present in some shape or form. This is why the professional advice is to assume asbestos is present in older houses unless you have proof that a full test and survey has been performed by a qualified professional.

If you live in an older home, asbestos could well be present. We can perform a survey on your property to check if it’s there. In the case that you’re certain asbestos is present and you know where it is, we’ll just go straight to the testing stage. This allows us to identify the exact state, location and quantity of the asbestos.

Before you go knocking down walls or removing tiles, read our guide to where asbestos may be hiding in your home.
Sometimes, we find asbestos which is safely and tightly packaged away. In this scenario, it’s both easier and cheaper to encapsulate the asbestos to make sure it stays in its current condition.
This would require the property owner to agree to the asbestos remaining on their property on the understanding that it’s not to be engaged with in any way. They would have to make sure the packaging is not disturbed or damaged. This could lead to the harmful asbestos particles being released into the atmosphere.
Asbestos encapsulation is a safe and viable option. But we understand that it still might be unsettling to know that asbestos is present. For this reason, we’re still happy to completely remove and dispose of the asbestos. Doing this would give you the peace of mind from knowing that the asbestos is no longer there.

Really professional courteous service from start to finish. All questions answered immediately, very competitive price and brilliant job done. Even though it was a hard job and lots of dirt due to the age of the house the guys were still polite and helpful and got it done in the time promised. Highly recommended.
Nathan and his team were so efficient – I called and within a week the survey had been done and I had a list of recommendations for what to do next. It was good value and now I’m not worried about what to do about the asbestos in my property.
Nathan and Alice were very helpful from start to finish. Both were friendly and full of info. Job was carried out well and Nathan kept me up to date with every step. Good price as well.
