Asbestos Garage Roofs

Asbestos is a highly hazardous material that was commonly used in construction up until the year 2000. Asbestos Cement was used on garage roofs as part of the roof sheeting. However, asbestos is now known to cause serious health issues, particularly when its fibres are released into the air and inhaled. This is why it’s important to recognise the signs of asbestos in your garage roof and take appropriate measures to ensure safe removal.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call a professional asbestos removal service immediately. Attempting to remove asbestos yourself can be extremely dangerous and should never be attempted without the proper equipment and training.

Remember, prevention is always better than cure when it comes to asbestos. Regularly inspect your garage roof for signs of damage or wear and tear to catch any potential issues early on. And if you’re planning on renovating or replacing your garage roof, make sure to get it checked for asbestos beforehand.

With proper care and attention, you can get rid of your garage roof and the associated health risks for good. Our professional asbestos removal service will bring all the necessary equipment and protective gear to ensure a safe and thorough removal process. And after the removal is complete, we take extra precautions to clean up any lingering dust or debris, ensuring that your property is safe from asbestos.

In accordance with regulations on asbestos removal, you will also receive a certificate from London Asbestos within 14 days of removal, confirming that your asbestos has been legally and safely disposed of. This certification is not only important for your own peace of mind, but also for potential buyers or tenants in the future.

Asbestos Water Tanks

Finding out that you have an asbestos water tank that needs removing can be a daunting thought. With the growing awareness of the dangers of handling anything containing asbestos, it’s important to take the necessary precautions when dealing with these types of materials.

At London Asbestos, we understand the importance of safe removal and disposal of asbestos water tanks, down pipes and guttering. Our team has all the necessary PPE and materials to ensure that the survey and removal process is carried out safely and efficiently.

But why exactly was asbestos used in water tanks? Asbestos was a highly favoured material for the manufacture of hot and cold water tanks not only in residential properties around the UK, but also heavily used in a wide range of commercial buildings. Its high resistance to heat and corrosion made it a popular choice for use in water tanks.

However, with the discovery of the harmful effects of asbestos on human health, its use has been banned in many countries including the UK since 1999. This means that any water tank containing asbestos needs to be removed and disposed of properly by licensed professionals.

Floor Tiles

One of the most common uses of asbestos was in flooring tiles. In fact, many buildings constructed from the 1920s to the late 1990s may still have asbestos floor tiles in place. While undisturbed tiles pose little risk, any disturbance or damage can release harmful fibres into the air.

This is why it is important for proper removal and disposal of asbestos floor tiles. If you need help with removing and disposing of these hazardous materials, London Asbestos is here for you. Our experienced team is equipped to handle the safe removal and proper disposal of asbestos-containing floor tiles in both domestic and commercial properties.

It is worth noting that it is not uncommon to find multiple layers of asbestos-containing floor tiles, as removing even just one layer can be a challenging task. This highlights the importance of hiring professionals who have the necessary training and equipment to safely remove and dispose of asbestos tiles.

Attempting to remove them yourself or covering them up with new flooring can actually do more harm than good.

Furthermore, it is important for commercial property owners to regularly check for any signs of damage or disturbance in asbestos-containing floor tiles. For ongoing safety, it is recommended to have a management plan in place for the proper handling and monitoring of asbestos-containing materials in your building.

In conclusion, while it may be tempting to simply cover up asbestos-containing floor tiles during renovations, it is crucial to have them properly removed and disposed of by professionals. This not only ensures the safety of those living or working in the building but also helps prevent any future health risks.

Artex Ceilings

Artex, a type of decorative textured plaster popular in the 1970s and 1980s, can be found on ceilings and walls in many homes built during that time period. However, what many people may not realise is that this seemingly harmless material contains asbestos, a known carcinogen.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was commonly used in building materials due to its strength, durability, and resistance to heat and fire. However, it wasn’t until much later that the harmful effects of asbestos on human health were discovered.

When Artex becomes damaged or disturbed, whether through renovations or regular wear and tear, it can release asbestos fibres into the air. These fibres are so small that they can easily be breathed in by people and animals. Once inhaled, the asbestos fibres can cause serious health issues that may not become apparent until many years later.

While the use of asbestos in building materials has been banned in many countries, it is estimated that millions of homes and buildings still contain asbestos-containing materials, including Artex. Therefore, it is important for homeowners to be aware of the potential dangers associated with Artex and to take necessary precautions when handling or removing asbestos.
