We, at Asbestos Management & Removal Team, offer the following Asbestos removal services:

  • Class A (Friable) Asbestos Removal
  • Class B (Non-friable) Asbestos Removal

Class A (Friable) Asbestos Removal

Class A (Friable) Asbestos Removal refers to Asbestos when it is dry, and may be crumbled, pulverised or reduced to a powder form. You can find Friable Asbestos in textured ceilings, vinyl flooring, pipe lagging etc.

Class B (Non-Friable) Asbestos Removal

Class B (Non-Friable) Asbestos Removal refers to Asbestos that when it is dry it cannot be crumbled, pulverised or reduced to a powder form. Usually, you will find Class B Asbestos mixed in with other products like cement or hard bonding materials. Class B Asbestos however can become friable as a result of factors such as fire damage or exposure to chemicals over time. You can find Non-Friable Asbestos in cladding, soffits, baseboards, roofing materials, gable ends, etc.

How do I know I have Asbestos?

Generally, houses built anywhere between the 1940’s to 1980’s had Asbestos products used in them. It is more common in houses built around the 1960’s-70’s we find will test positive for an asbestos product.

The best way to know for sure is to get a sample tested. We at Asbestos Management & Removal Team LTD use an independent third party to come do this for you.

I want to proceed with getting my Asbestos removed, what do I need to know?
  • You need to ensure you are getting a licenced A & B Class removal company to complete your Asbestos Removal – Asbestos Management & Removal Team LTD are A & B Class licenced. 
  • Asbestos Removal cannot start straight away – legally we have to give Work Safe 5 days’ notice to start removal if the job is greater than 10m2.
  • For any Asbestos Removal work completed, an Independent third party clearance certificate should be issued to you. We also keep our clearance certificates on file for 14+ years.
  • You will be asked that you are not on site during the undertaking of any asbestos removal work.
  • It is safe for you to return home at the end of the day, if removal is taking part outside (i.e. roof, cladding etc.) as we will ensure all exposed Asbestos is removed and safely stored with no debris left on the ground etc.
  • This won’t always be the case, however, a decontamination unit and enclosure needs to be set up, so if we cannot separate the removal area from the rest of the house, you will need to be vacant while we remove the Asbestos – not to fret though we will communicate this to you when we discuss the quote we have sent through.
Tell me more about your waterproofing system

We believe this is what sets us apart from a lot of other Asbestos Removal companies and is reflected in our price. It would pay to always check with your Asbestos Removalist if either heavy-duty tarping or shrink wrapping is included in their quote, as more often than not these Asbestos Removal companies will leave your roof exposed and tap out of liability for this. If the roofer cannot get in straight away you are left with the potential to have some serious water damage to your property, hence why we here at Asbestos  

Management & Removal Team LTD want to ensure you have a weatherproof system put in place leaving you without having to fork out the costs of your water-damaged house and to keep you dry until your new roof is on. 

What licences and certificates do you hold?

We are A (Friable) & B (Non-friable) class licenced, so we are able to complete all types of Asbestos removal work. We also hold certification in Occupational Health & Safety ISO45001:2018, Sitewise Gold and IMPAC Prequal.
