Are you a builder or property owner in Hampshire who is wondering whether builders can legally remove asbestos from your property? If so, you're in the right place. We are Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, a licensed and experienced company that provides safe and affordable asbestos removal services to homeowners and builders across Hampshire and the South East of England. In this article, we'll explore the legal requirements for asbestos removal in Hampshire, the risks associated with asbestos and how builders can safely and legally remove it from properties.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used as a building material until the late 1990s. It's fire-resistant and durable, which made it a popular choice for insulation and other construction materials. However, it's also highly toxic, and exposure to asbestos can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. Asbestos is particularly dangerous when it is disturbed or damaged, as this can release tiny asbestos fibers into the air that can be inhaled into the lungs.
Due to the serious health risks associated with asbestos, there are strict regulations in place regarding its removal and disposal. Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, anyone who is responsible for maintaining or repairing a building (including builders) must ensure that any asbestos-containing materials are identified and safely removed. This means that builders must have the appropriate training and equipment to safely remove asbestos, or they must hire a licensed asbestos removal company to do the work for them.
So, can builders legally remove asbestos from properties in Hampshire? The answer is yes, but only if they are properly trained, equipped and licensed to do so. Builders who are not properly licensed to remove asbestos risk breaking the law and endangering their own health, as well as the health of anyone else who may be exposed to the asbestos fibers. Additionally, property owners who allow unlicensed builders to remove asbestos from their properties may also be held legally responsible.

So, how does the asbestos removal process work? First, the building materials that are suspected to contain asbestos are identified and tested in a laboratory. If asbestos is present, our team will develop a custom asbestos removal plan that addresses the specific needs of the property. We will then carefully remove the asbestos-containing materials from the property, taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our team and anyone else on the property. Once the asbestos has been safely removed, we will dispose of it in a safe and legal manner.
Proper disposal of asbestos is essential to protect the health of workers and the wider community. In Hampshire, all asbestos waste materials must be disposed of at a licensed asbestos waste disposal site. It is illegal to dispose of asbestos in regular household waste bins or to dump it illegally.
