Homeowners in Southsea recently discovered why it’s best to call in experts such as ourselves for all asbestos removal tasks.
They were preparing to put their house on the market, and as part of those preparations, decided to have some re-roofing work done.
The roofing firm they contracted discovered that their tiles contained asbestos, but said ‘Don’t worry. Leave it to us. We can handle it.’
Unfortunately for the homeowners though, the roofing company didn’t handle things very well. They managed to remove the tiles all right, but in doing so, they contaminated the entire loft with asbestos debris.
It was that point that we were called in. We carried out a full sweep of the loft and removed all asbestos containing materials (ACMs). We transported those materials for safe disposal, and provided certification to say the work was conducted properly. This certificate was necessary in order for the clients to be able to sell the house.
If the householders had initially called us in for the necessary asbestos removal work, the loft would not have become contaminated, and it would have been a much smaller job overall.
Don’t make the same mistake if you need asbestos removal from your roof or anywhere else, in Southsea or anywhere else.
Instead, for asbestos removal in Hampshire, Surrey, Dorset, West Sussex, East Sussex, Berkshire, Wiltshire, or Kent, call us.
