What exactly is asbestos?
Asbestos is made from a combination of six naturally occuring materials, which when made into fibres are microscopic in size. It was used freely until 1999, when scientific research proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was a link between asbestos and serious health conditions, specifically cancer. A huge number of older Surrey properties still feature asbestos due to it being effective insulation, and highly heat resistant.
What has asbestos been used for?
Braye Demolition & Plant Services – Surrey’s premier provider of demolition, plant hire, concrete crushing and recycling services – most commonly finds asbestos employed in: roofs, ceilings, floor tiles, gutters and pipes. Anything that has historically needed to be insulated!
How does the law govern asbestos?
Strictly, by classifying it as hazardous waste and dictating where it can be disposed, and who in Surrey it can be disposed of by; the 2012 control of asbestos regulations provide further details that licenced handlers and consignees must abide by. If you have asbestos in your property but it’s deemed to be better left of undisturbed, there must be some form of management plan in place.
But if, for example, asbestos is uncovered during development work or during a demolition, then you will most likely legally require an asbestos removal service to safeguard you, contractors working on your property, and anyone in the general vicinity.
