Case Study 1 - Damaged Garage Ceiling in Penkridge
We received a call from a homeowner who was concerned after an electrician had broken through the garage ceiling in order to fit a cable. A friend of the homeowner had suggested that the ceiling could be asbestos.
Upon receiving the call, one of our experts attended the premises within the hour. A sample of the material was taken for asbestos analysis and advice was given to keep out of the garage until we had the result. The sample proved to be asbestos insulating board and the homeowner was informed immediately. We then environmentally cleaned the garage and repaired the damaged board.
Case Study 2 - Textured Coated Ceilings in Stafford
We received a call from an homeowner that was looking to get the textured coated ceilings removed from the bedroom and bathroom of her property, she had been advised by the decorators that it may contain asbestos therefore she would need to get it tested.
We visited the property to take the sample for analysis purposes. The results proved there were traces of asbestos in the textured coating. Our friendly team gave the customer a competitive quote for removal of the textured coating and the works were carried out.
Case Study 3 - Insulation around Water Pipes in Tunstall
We received a call from a landlord of a property in Tunstall, they had been advised by a plumber to get the insulation surrounding a water pipe tested as it may contain asbestos.
The customer purchased one of our DIY sampling kits and returned the bagged sample to us to be analysed by our UKAS accredited laboratory. The results of the sample showed that the insulation did contain asbestos and we removed the insulation as a matter of urgency.
Case Study 4 - Pre-demolition asbestos survey in Cannock
We were called by a UKAS accredited surveying company who were planning to do a pre-demolition asbestos survey at a derelict site. The asbestos management survey had identified areas of asbestos pipe insulation in a poor condition with dust and debris to the floor; however access was still required in these areas to inspect them as part of their survey.
A self contained decontamination unit was delivered to site and we provided the necessary training in order for the surveyors to set up / shut down the unit daily and undertake the correct decontamination procedure.
