Why remove asbestos?
We believe that one of the most important services we offer at Trade Skips is safe and secure asbestos removal, because we prioritise safety above all else.
Asbestos is a material that is found in a surprisingly large number of domestic and commercial environments, because at one time it was regarded as an excellent material for reinforcing building structure thanks to its light weight and its tensile strength. However, research over the last fifty years has identified it as a toxic material responsible for a conditions like asbestosis and mesothelioma, diseases incurred by breathing in microscopic asbestos fibres (often airborne in areas where asbestos has been disturbed) which is responsible for over 5000 deaths every year.
We believe that everyone should be entitled to a safe working environment, which is why we offer a professional asbestos service upholding all the required precautions.
When you book an asbestos removal with Trade Skips, you’ll get a comprehensive asbestos survey that outlines a risk assessment and identifies the most threatening materials in your property for expedited removal. This survey circumscribes the best course of action to tackle the problem, whether that is encapsulation — containing the asbestos with a specially-formulated coating — or full removal in more serious cases.
Removed asbestos will be disposed of in a way that not only meets but exceeds legislative demands. If your site does not have easy access to a skip due to any type of constraint, we have developed our own specialised asbestos removal bags, boasting a sealable inner lining for the safe carriage of toxic materials in accordance with all up-to-date regulation. We promise that you can return to a work environment that is completely free of threat to you and your employees, giving you the peace-of-mind you need.
On top of removal, we also offer asbestos testing as part of our Waste Analysis service. By having your waste tested, you can identify possible sources of asbestos in order to tackle it at the source.
