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.

The dangers of asbestos to the public
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.

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.
