Unusual Asbestos Findings

When it comes to asbestos, roofing and insulation materials tend to be the first things that come to mind. However, not everyone is so aware of the other common materials that may contain asbestos.

As a provider of asbestos management and consultancy services, our asbestos surveyors have discovered asbestos in a number of locations and, with years of experience, are tuned in to the typical finds as well as the hidden uses of asbestos across many different functions.

In this example, Asbestos Insulating Board (AIB) packers have been found to the frame of the loft hatch in a housing association property.

It is estimated that around 500,000 public buildings in the UK still have asbestos present. Just because asbestos is present, however, it does not mean it poses immediate danger. In fact, it is often more dangerous to remove the materials than it is to manage them in situ.

Here at Casa Environmental Services we have all the knowledge, equipment and experience needed to not only identify asbestos, but also safely manage it. With a professional team of highly qualified staff with many years of experience dealing in the management, surveying, identification and reporting on asbestos, we are able to offer this wide range of services to suit all business needs surrounding the risks and requirements of asbestos management.
