Due to the health risks associated with asbestos, many farm owners choose to remove asbestos from their properties. If you are planning a large renovation, such as retrofitting UPVC windows, then asbestos removal may be required before work can commence. Or you may feel that the risk to your worker’s health is too great to leave the asbestos in place. Whatever your reasons from removing asbestos from your agricultural buildings, we can help.
Buildings constructed before the year 2000 may have asbestos present. Before the dangers were known, this fibrous material was used widely in the construction industry for insulation. It may be found in flooring or roofing or it may have been sprayed on walls or ceilings. Asbestos was used widely in agriculture to provide added insulation to cement walls and wall cladding.
Provided the materials containing asbestos remain intact, it poses little danger. However, if the material is disturbed, this can lead to airborne asbestos fibres which are highly hazardous to life. If you are concerned about the risks associated with asbestos on your property, we can help remove and dispose of it safely.
