Asbestos Removal and Disposal

Your Local Asbestos Removal Contractors

If you have a property that was built before 2000, it’s highly likely that it contains asbestos. It can be found in a variety of materials, such as roofing tiles, insulation, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, and pipes. Asbestos is often hidden and difficult to detect, which is why it’s essential to have a professional contractor like WestCross environmental services to conduct a thorough inspection.

Asbestos can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma, which can take years to develop after exposure. Therefore, it’s crucial for homeowners and businesses to have asbestos removed from their properties to ensure the safety of their occupants.

Who we help

The dangers of asbestos to the public

Asbestos Removal

When should you take action with asbestos

Asbestos removal is necessary when asbestos-containing materials are damaged or in poor condition, as this can release harmful fibres into the air. It’s important to have asbestos removed by a licensed contractor like WestCross Environmental Services, as the process requires specialised equipment, training, and disposal procedures.

Asbestos fibres can be released into the air when materials containing asbestos are disturbed, such as during renovation or demolition work. If inhaled, these fibres can cause serious health problems.

At WestCross environmental services, we follow a strict process to ensure the safe and effective removal of asbestos. Our team of trained and licensed professionals use specialised equipment and techniques to minimize the risk of exposure to asbestos fibres.

Emergency Asbestos Removal

What to do if you suspect asbestos is at your property

Our asbestos removal process begins with an assessment of the situation to determine the scope of the work and the level of risk.

We then create a detailed plan for the removal, including containment measures to prevent the spread of asbestos fibres. Our team of trained professionals use state-of-the-art equipment to safely remove asbestos materials, which are then disposed of in accordance with UK regulations.

Not having asbestos removed poses significant risks to homeowners and businesses. Exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to serious health risks.

Common Asbestos Removal Projects in Residential Properties

Vinyl floor tiles containing asbestos were popular in the mid-20th century. Their removal is a common task during home renovations and updates.

Commonly found in partition walls, and fireproofing panels, AIB removal is a frequent task in older homes undergoing renovations or demolition.

Asbestos Cement Removal

Often used in roofing sheets, guttering, and pipes, asbestos cement materials are prevalent in many UK homes built before the 2000s.

This is always dependent on the task involved. For example, removing an asbestos containing roof from your garage maybe completed in a few hours, but we work on commercial projects that can take over a year or longer to fully complete.

Asbestos removal in the UK is governed by a number of regulations and laws designed to protect workers and the public from the health risks of asbestos exposure. The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 set out specific requirements for asbestos removal, including the need for licensed contractors to carry out certain types of work. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for enforcing these regulations and ensuring that asbestos removal is carried out safely and in compliance with the law. It's important to choose a certified professional who is familiar with these regulations and can carry out asbestos removal in a safe and compliant manner.
