Asbestos removal within Wolverhampton is becoming a growing issue as more households and companies seek to upgrade their property, echoing the regeneration and increased investment that the city centre is enjoying. With more structural work being undertaken, more property owners are discovering asbestos that needs to be removed before further work can be started.

If you’re one such property owner, you’ll understand the importance of getting professional, experienced people in to clear away any asbestos from your garage roof, guttering, flooring or pipework. That’s where JS Removals come in: with years of experience and a team of highly-qualified professionals on hand throughout the year, we can be on-site within days to ensure your building – and anyone living or working in it – is made safe as soon as possible.

Asbestos is one of the most common high-risk factors when completing large-scale renovations to any kind of building, thanks to its prolific use throughout the first half of the last century, as well as into the 1960s and 1970s. Wolverhampton invested in extensive building projects in this time, especially in areas such as Whitmore Reans, Chetton Green and Heath Town, though this latter area was later partially redeveloped when the city centre also received a facelift. It’s little wonder, then, that many homes and commercial structures erected in Wolverhampton during this era are now facing the reality of getting their asbestos removed.

Wolverhampton Asbestos Removal Before

Why is Asbestos Removal Necessary? How Does it Work?

Asbestos is a mineral that possesses fibrous qualities, which alongside its fireproof and waterproof properties have made it a popular choice for building solid structures such as garage roofs, pipes and guttering, and tiles, as well as allowing it to be flexible enough to be woven into blankets and used as lagging around pipework.

However, in the 1970s the long-term effects of exposure to asbestos became apparent – when it is disturbed or damaged, small fibres are released into the air where they are inhaled, and cause damage to the lining of the lungs. The effects often take decades to show, but severe respiratory damage and lung cancer are both linked to asbestos.

By the 1980s, blue and brown asbestos had been banned in the UK, and white asbestos followed in 1999. In older buildings, though, the risk still remains – and the people most commonly affected by asbestos in the UK now tend to be those whose work links them to property repairs and renovations – builders, carpenters, electricians and plumbers.

Because of its dangerous nature, asbestos has to be removed by JS Removals who understand how to remove it safely, as well as being able to transport it to a suitable disposal site where it can be melted down to create non-toxic products.

JS Removals not only have a license to carry such a hazardous waste product, but we also have the expertise to be able to remove asbestos in a way that keeps you and us safe, including using full PPE and specially designated vans to transport the asbestos.

Within 14 days of payment, your asbestos is disposed of and the Environment Agency will issue a certificate guaranteeing the work that has taken place, so you can have peace of mind that your building, following any other renovations, is safe to live or work in once again.
