Asbestos Cleared in Norwich/Norfolk
Here at JS Removals our team are on hand to assist you in any asbestos removal within Norwich and the county of Norfolk. Whether you have a small domestic job, such as an asbestos garage roof that you need removing and disposing of or, you are a Norwich business with more large scale asbestos issues, we can help no matter how big the job may be.
How Do I Know if I Need Asbestos Remove
Well the very first thing you must do is identify whether or not you have asbestos within your building. This is made easier because we can narrow down the timeframe within which the material would have been used.
In Norwich itself there were many new developments, brought about by the City of Norwich Plan 1945, which was put into place after the Second World War and saw massive demolition and rebuilding throughout the city from 1945 right up to the early 70s which was a time when the use of asbestos in construction was rife. However, just because your property was built before Norwich’s 45 Plan doesn’t mean that it doesn’t contain the harmful material. Any remedial work carried out throughout this time could also contain items that were made using asbestos.
The second part of the detective work needed to determine if you have asbestos in your building is to know where to find it. Asbestos has good thermal properties as well as being fire resistant and waterproof so was a widely used material in external products such as roofing and walls of garages, soffits and facings of buildings, both domestic and commercial, and in gutters and drain pipes. Internally it was also used as flooring and ceiling tiles.
Before you rush into getting any asbestos removed it is worth noting that not every situation requires removal and disposal. In some instances it may be best to simply leave it where it is. However this is only an option if you know that it won’t be disturbed by future works or is not at risk of damage and deterioration by the elements over time.
In almost all situations once you are aware that there is asbestos within the structure of your building then it makes sense to get it removed, and more importantly, disposed of in a responsible and environmentally safe way. The best way you can do this is by calling in the experts.
Finding Asbestos in Your Norwich Premises
Once you’ve determined that you have asbestos in your Norwich property that needs removing then you must ensure that every precaution is taken to minimise the damage that can be done to anyone who comes in contact with it during its extraction and disposal.
We offer a safe and professional service covering all kinds of extraction work from garage roof or ceiling removal, removal of drain pipes or soffits to complete garage demolition and removal. But the use of this material is not confined to the external parts of your property and we also have extensive experience in the removal of internal floors, walls and ceilings as well as water tanks where asbestos can also be found.
All our team are industry trained and qualified and follow the latest safety regulations throughout the process. This ensures that you, your building, the environment and our staff won’t come into contact with any hazardous fibres during the clearance and disposal.
When the job is complete you’ll be issued with an Asbestos Consignment Note from us which is your certificate to prove that the asbestos has been cleared following all the correct procedure.
