EDINBURGH ASBESTOS REMOVAL :

ASA provides a fully comprehensive asbestos removal service to all sectors throughout Edinburgh, The Lothians & Scotland. Asbestos is still commonplace in many properties and Industrial sites within Scotland and is a class 1 cancer-causing carcinogen. The silicate mineral was widely used in various types of building materials from the 1940s through to its total UK ban in 1999.

The varying materials that contain asbestos range from; Roofing sheets and soundproofing to insulation, toilet cisterns, textured coatings and felts & bitumen, indeed literally hundreds of products had asbestos added to them for a variety of useful purposes including; Fire & Heat resistance, acoustics and strengthening of base products such as cement roofing sheets and vinyl floor tiles.
Asbestos was regarded, for many years, as an excellent material for these and other practical reasons.
Although the first reported cases of asbestos-related health problems can be found as far back as the 1930s, it was not until the 1980s that direct action was taken on its usage, Firstly by a voluntary ban followed by legislation and eventual total ban in 1999.

For these reasons, it is essential that asbestos located in any building is managed in a safe manner or removed as per the current regulations.
There are still numerous buildings within large cities such as Edinburgh where asbestos is located.
Although the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 specifies requirements for Non-Domestic premises constructed before 1999, all buildings, including domestic premises, have the potential to contain asbestos. Indeed, Communal areas of Domestic and residential properties are covered by the regulations and therefore require an asbestos assessment to comply with current legislation.

You can trust ASA to provide a fully professional service including; Asbestos management surveys, Asbestos refurbishment surveys, Asbestos management plans and fully HSE licensed asbestos removal and remediation works.
We have an unblemished record, quality assured to ISO 9001:2008, fully insured and have over 30 years experience in the field.
