Asbestos removal issues

As you may know, there are many rules and regulations covering the removal of asbestos.

Very briefly there are two basic situations :

Lower risk asbestos issues

Thermoplastic floor tiles, artex on plasterboard, asbestos cement and similar relatively low fibre release issues.

Higher risk asbestos issues

Asbestos insulating board, asbestos lagging & insulation, sprayed coatings, certain asbestos paper based materials and other higher fibre release issues.

Before beginning any asbestos treatment or removal works, we strongly recommend that you should first obtain (and follow), correct professional advice, as applicable to your precise situation. The two tabs below, give a general description of the applicable ‘ground rules’.
