Should asbestos be removed?

When you suspect or confirm the existence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in your property, the initial thoughts will be around having them fully removed so that they pose no further threat. However, that is not always the best solution for your property. Asbestos remediation and management may prove to be the best avenue to take for most home & business owners.

What is asbestos remediation?

Asbestos remediation is a professional management process for any asbestos-containing materials discovered within your property following an asbestos survey Manchester and asbestos testing to ensure materials are not damaged.

As the name suggests, it involves remedying the presence of ACMs throughout your property and making them safely contained. It is erroneously viewed that asbestos removal Stockport is the only way to deal with asbestos. Several solutions can prove more cost-effective, including encapsulation, repair and regular monitoring to keep the materials safe with low risk.

Proper remediation of asbestos-containing materials is a critical act as they pose a danger to human health and life, even with it being a naturally occurring fibre. For the last few decades, the high-level dangers of asbestos fibres have been well-documented and have resulted in strict and tightly controlled UK laws and legislation that aim to minimise asbestos exposure risks, and lay the law down on any work undertaken around asbestos.

When is remediation required?

Once asbestos surveying is complete on your premises and ACMs have identified, it becomes necessary to determine the best course of action based on the results and condition of the threat, resulting in either close monitoring, remediation or removal.

Every property and asbestos condition is unique, with many factors influencing the decision to remedy or remove the material. Factors such as the product type, deterioration and surface treatment weigh heavily on the decision. If ACMs are heavily damaged and asbestos fibres released into the environment, a full removal is the best course of action – conducted by a professional asbestos removal company only.

If the ACMs are in fair condition, encapsulation and repairing them may be the best course of action that is also more cost-effective. ACMs become a health hazard when either disturbed or damaged through refurbishment work. If they remain in a safe state, labelling and close monitoring is a better solution.
