While asbestos isn’t harmful when undisturbed, if the material is handled or broken it has the potential to release dangerous fibres. These can then become trapped in the nose, the throat’s mucus membrane, and the lungs — which can eventually lead to serious diseases.
Asbestos is no longer used in properties, but it was a popular insulation choice between 1950 and 1980 and is often found throughout older properties (in roofs, insulation boards, etc.)
If you’re a contractor and discover asbestos in a home that you’re working on, professional asbestos removal is crucial for a few reasons…
Hiring a professional to remove your asbestos will ensure that it is taken away in the safest way possible. At Stabler Waste, we’re able to provide an enclosed and lockable container ensuring safe transportation and disposal.
Inhalation of fine asbestos dust is symptomless — it does not cause you to cough, sneeze, or itch. This can lure people into a false sense of security when they discover it. This being said, do not try to remove the asbestos yourself if you are not fully trained or have the correct protective equipment (this is a legal requirement).
Unfortunately, our team can’t remove the asbestos for you, but we can take it away safely and quickly. If you are not sure whether you have encountered asbestos or need it removed from its exact location, you’ll need an asbestos surveyor to take a look. Not all asbestos needs removing. In fact, it can sometimes be safer to leave it (and just continue monitoring it) if it isn’t damaged or broken. A specialist will be able to conduct an asbestos survey and advise you (and the homeowner) on the best course of action.
You cannot put asbestos into household waste, recycling collections, or standard skips. Only certain licensed sites accept asbestos. When disposed of incorrectly, asbestos fibers can negatively affect the surrounding environment or cause a health hazard to others.
A licensed asbestos removal contractor, like us, will be able to dispose of your asbestos legally, in a way that’s safe for other people and the environment. Is your asbestos already safely contained? Instead of using a collection service, you can send it to us. Double wrapped asbestos can be delivered to our licensed transfer station in Carnaby, East Yorkshire — we’ll handle everything from there.
If asbestos needs to be removed, it’s a matter of urgency.
If continuing work while it is still in the property could harm the health of you or your team, you will need to stop working until it has been fully and safely removed. As our service is efficient and easy to arrange, you and your team will be able to resume your renovation work with peace of mind. You’ll be able to continue your work with minimal interruption, saving you time and money.
