Licensed Asbestos Removal

Fully Licensed Asbestos Removal by Crucial Environmental. We are licensed to carry out a full range of asbestos services to residential, industrial, schools and commercial properties across the UK from our bases in Sussex and Nottinghamshire.

In October 2023, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) granted us a full license for work with all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). This means we’re fully authorised to provide full asbestos removal, decontamination and encapsulation services.

Working with asbestos is often a process rather than a task – we provide a comprehensive management service throughout the removal and disposal of the material. This starts with initial surveys, testing sampling, before moving through to waste disposal and air quality monitoring to ensure that the property is free from asbestos fibres. Please contact us today for more details.

Carrying out hazardous Asbestos work

We recognise that environmental awareness and legislative-consciousness are paramount in the removal and disposal of asbestos. By ensuring strict compliance with current legislation, site personnel and the general public are safeguarded through safe removal techniques with the secure movement and removal of waste.

What is asbestos and where is it found?

You may have heard of asbestos without really understanding what it is or why you need manage it in your property. Asbestos is a naturally occurring material that was widely used in construction for its wide range of useful properties. Unfortunately, it was established that, while the material is useful, it is also highly damaging to human health. Long-term exposure to asbestos can lead to a number of very serious medical conditions including cancers.

It was banned from use entirely in the UK in 1999 – however, buildings built before can contain asbestos. Some common places that asbestos can be found include:

  • Cement
  • Roofing
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Sprays and coatings such as Artex
  • Cisterns
  • Insulation
  • Guttering
