Emergency Asbestos Removal

An emergency asbestos removal situation can arise in a number of ways at your home or commercial premises. If you suddenly become aware of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) and need them swiftly and expertly removed, then contact Meyer Environmental to have things put right.

We offer emergency asbestos removal services throughout Hampshire, Surrey, Dorset, West Sussex, East Sussex, Berkshire, Wiltshire, and Kent.

How an emergency asbestos removal situation may arise

You may need emergency asbestos removal if:

  • A builder breaks through a wall or ceiling panels during a renovation project and discovers asbestos there, or you discover asbestos yourself during a DIY project;
  • Your premises suffers fire or flood damage, that exposes ACMs; or,
  • Illegal fly-tipping of ACMs occurs at your property.

In all such cases, you will want the asbestos quickly removed and the area immediately made safe. Those are the exact services we deliver.

How we deal with it

We will quickly arrive at your site – sometimes even on the same day – and we will first conduct an assessment to determine the extent of the presence of ACMs.

We will also establish if the HSE requires notification that asbestos removal is about to take place. In many emergency cases where notification is required, we can secure a waiver of the usual 14-day notification period, so that removal can be carried out immediately.

We will then secure your site and use best industry practice to remove all exposed asbestos and make remaining materials safe, and we will then take away the ACMs for proper disposal under licence.

We will also arrange an independent inspection and air test by an accredited analytical company. This is to verify that all hazardous ACMs have been removed and there are no remaining risks posed by airborne fibres or other materials.

Please note this testing is mandatory in all emergency asbestos removal situations where HSE notification is required, and it must be complete before safety enclosures on the site are removed.

Once the all-clear is given, you will be given a certificate of reoccupation and then are free to resume using your premises as before.
