Asbestos Removal In Girvan

Asbestos removal procedures

Once the presence of asbestos has been confirmed on your site in Girvan, Waste King’s fully trained asbestos removal specialists can provide you with a comprehensive removal, treatment and disposal service.

As all our asbestos removal contractors in Girvan are individually licensed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). So, all they do is in accordance with the HSE’s regulations and guidance notes.

The disposal of all the asbestos that Waste King handles is carried out in accordance with the Special Waste Regulations 1996.

Each job is given its own programme of works. This includes a detailed site-specific Method Statement, which outlines the works to be carried out as well as documenting all risk factors.

Typically, the part of the building from which asbestos is being removed must be sealed off, in order to prevent contaminating other areas. Methods of sealing off an area often include the use of polythene film, duct tape, and/or negative air pressure machines which are fitted with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters.

Only a special vacuum cleaner that’s designed for asbestos containment (class H) can be safely used when cleaning up during and after asbestos removal. Ordinary vacuum cleaners can’t be used – even those fitted with a HEPA filter – because they will expel the asbestos fibres into the room air.

Asbestos removal procedures in Girvan

Stages of asbestos clearance

Stage 1:Preliminary check of site condition and job completeness
Stage 2:Thorough visual inspection
Stage 3:Clearance air monitoring
Stage 4:Final assessment post enclosure / work area
When removing asbestos:
Waste King will seal off the area with an airtight enclosure. This is a temporary structure built with metal frames and heavy-duty polythene. The enclosure has three chambers to create a controlled measure sealed air-lock. This structure stops asbestos fibres spreading through the air to other areas.
We then put the enclosure under negative pressure using an air extraction machine fitted with a HEPA filter. This creates negative pressure to remove harmful ambient asbestos fibres from the air.

Our operatives will then revise the risk and method statements for the site when they arrive, to ensure works go to plan.
All operatives wear personal protective equipment (PPE) which comprises overalls, respiratory masks, gloves and hard-wearing boots.
Operatives enter the enclosure through each of the three entrance chambers individually – ensuring no air escapes.

Asbestos Encapsulation

Asbestos may be discovered in a fair condition and unlikely to be damaged. So, rather than removing it you may decide to seal and encapsulate the asbestos to make it safe.

Deciding between asbestos removal and encapsulation can be challenging. So, our experts are always happy to advise you on the most appropriate and effective solution to your asbestos issue.

What’s Asbestos Encapsulation?

Asbestos Encapsulation involves applying specialist coatings to the Asbestos Containing Materials. This protects them from any further age degradation, cracking, flaking or impact damage. It also seals over any exposed edges that could release asbestos fibres into the air.

However, since the asbestos is left in place, its condition must be regularly monitored for safety.

The benefits of asbestos encapsulation are:

It involves minimal disturbance to the asbestos – thus minimising risk.

No asbestos removal or disposal is involved – lowering cost.

Asbestos encapsulation is quick to apply – resulting in minimal disturbance to the property’s occupants.

It makes the environment safe by removing the danger of harmful asbestos fibres in the air.

It’s easier than asbestos removal in hard-to-access areas.
