Here Are Just a Few

A domestic property is a private owned home/residential. 

This can vary on the size of the property, but an estimate on a 3 bedroom house an take from 2-3 hours. 

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 came into force containing a clear duty to manage asbestos on the owners and/or those responsible for maintenance in non-domestic or commercial buildings.

An asbestos survey enables the duty holder to identify the asbestos and manage the asbestos according to the guidelines set by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

The description of non licensed work we remove include;

  • asbestos cement products 
  • asbestos in ropes, yarns and woven cloth
  • asbestos gaskets or asbestos rope cords 
  • asbestos-containing thermoplastic and vinyl floor tiles, bitumen roof felt, shingles, damp-proofing coatings, and mastic’s
  • asbestos-containing felt and paper
  • plastic paint coatings, PVC floors, panels and sealing compounds
  • asbestos-containing conveyor belts/drive belts, bonded rubber, electric cables
  • resin-based ACMs such as friction products (eg brake linings)
  • Painting/repainting AIB that is in good condition

Asbestos is recognised as a health hazard. Breathing asbestos fibres can cause some health issues. if you think that you have asbestos in your home or surrounding property, please do get it tested by a professional. 

This plan describes how duty holders manage the risk from ACMs within the properties they are working on. The asbestos management plan also complies with the CAR 2012 (Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) including the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Health & Safety Work Act 1974.

Higher risk work must be carried out by a licensed contractor, but the decision is made depending on the risk. 

Non-licensed work must fall under the CAR 2012 act following rules and regulations. The description of non licensed work include;

  • asbestos cement products 
  • asbestos in ropes, yarns and woven cloth
  • asbestos gaskets or asbestos rope cords

We dispose of asbestos material following the  Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005, we prioritise protecting our environment eveyr step of the way.

This is something I need to ask Pete.

No, asbestos does not smell, it can not be seen by the naked eye either, ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials) look and smell the same as non ACMs.
