House Asbestos Removal

Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum.

Protect your family from the dangers of asbestos

Exposure to asbestos in your home is a serious health and safety risk. If you have an older home that you are renovating or thinking of renovating, then be aware that asbestos may be present in building materials, roof sheeting, ceilings or insulation and should be removed.

Facts about asbestos in the home

Homes built before the 1980s could expose homeowners, their families and others to asbestos possibly hiding in cement, floor tiles, insulation, walls and pipes.

In the era of do-it-yourself home renovations, many homeowners are knocking down ceilings and walls and tearing out floor tiles and old pipes. But in their efforts to upgrade and beautify their older homes, they might unknowingly be contaminating the air they breathe with toxic asbestos fibres.

Asbestos Essentials can provide you with information about asbestos, its dangers, what to do if you suspect it’s in your home, the dos and don’ts when handling asbestos and other useful information to keep you, your family and others safe in your home.

Why should you remove asbestos?
