Domestic Asbestos Removal

Asbestos in homes

Asbestos was not completely banned in the UK until 1999. Even if a building dates from the 19th century, modifications in the 1950s to 1990s may have included incorporating asbestos in order to meet with the fire regulations of the time. The simple fact is you may be drilling, sawing, and breaking through asbestos without even knowing it. Avanti is here for your absolute peace of mind.

Is asbestos in my home?

If you suspect that you may have asbestos in your home, we suggest that firstly you have a sample taken. When the asbestos is identified we will advise the best way to proceed, either removal or encapsulation.

Will my Family be at risk?

When removing asbestos from homes we try to minimise disruption to the resident. Depending on the type of asbestos and how it is incorporated in your property we plan with you to isolate certain areas, whilst maintaining as much access as possible. However, we will still remove the asbestos in a safe and controlled manner, keeping you and your family safe from the risk of asbestos exposure.
