Asbestos Removal Derbyshire
It’s no secret that asbestos was commonly used in building materials until the 1990s when its dangers to human health were known.
Asbestos was banned in construction products and materials in the UK back in 1999, and while all new buildings and homes constructed since then don’t have this hazardous substance, there are still many properties that have asbestos lurking beneath the surface.
As you can appreciate, asbestos is not a material that unqualified and unlicensed individuals should handle and destroy themselves. In Britain, there are a wealth of companies that offer asbestos removal services. And when it comes to asbestos removal in Derbyshire, the county’s leading provider of those services is J.S. Environmental.

Does my property have asbestos?
If you own property or premises built before the time asbestos got banned in the UK, there is a chance that part of its construction could include the deadly fibres.
At J.S. Environmental, we offer pre-refurbishment asbestos surveys. In a nutshell, they locate and describe, as far as reasonably possible, all construction materials that contain asbestos.
So, if you are planning to renovate your home, office, or factory, and you have concerns that you may come into contact with asbestos, a survey from J.S. Environmental will tell you what you need to know.
Of course, should your home or building contain some asbestos, you can rely on us to safely remove or encapsulate it from your property.
How does asbestos encapsulation work?
As you can appreciate, if there is a lot of asbestos to remove from a property, it can cost a considerable amount of money. Asbestos is safe as long as it doesn’t get disturbed, and so an alternative to removal is encapsulation.
The way that it works is simple. We spray or paint the surface of any asbestos-containing material with a rubber-based coating. Aside from offering a layer of protection, it also seals any damaged construction materials.
