Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used in various industries for its heat-resistant and insulating properties. However, with the discovery of its carcinogenic nature, asbestos has been banned in many countries due to its serious health risks. In the UK, chrysotile asbestos, a form of white asbestos, was the most commonly used type of asbestos before the ban.
If your property was built before the year 2000, chances are it may contain asbestos in some form, including chrysotile asbestos tiles. If you suspect that your property has asbestos floor tiles, it is important to seek the help of an asbestos removal specialist in Hampshire.

Before you start the removal process, it is important to understand the risks associated with asbestos exposure. Asbestos can pose a serious risk to your health if it is damaged, disturbed, or exposed.
When asbestos is damaged or disturbed, it releases tiny fibres into the air, which can be inhaled and cause serious health problems. Chrysotile asbestos is known to cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Therefore, it is essential to take adequate precautions when handling asbestos.
Chrysotile asbestos tiles are usually found in flooring, particularly in homes and buildings built before the year 2000. These tiles can appear in different colours, including white, yellow, or brown, and are usually 9 inches by 9 inches in size.

Asbestos removal is a complex and hazardous process that should only be carried out by licensed asbestos removal companies in Hampshire. The process involves:
Site Preparation - Our team will prepare the work area by sealing off the affected room or area to avoid the spread of asbestos dust to other parts of the property. We will also set up a decontamination chamber and negative air pressure units to ensure that the area is safe.
Material Removal - Our team will carefully remove the floor tiles using specialised tools designed for asbestos removal. We will then package the tiles in approved asbestos waste bags and label them appropriately.
Cleaning and Decontamination - Once the tiles have been removed, we will thoroughly clean and decontaminate the work area using HEPA vacuum cleaners and wiping down surfaces with damp cloths.
Disposal - Our team will transport the asbestos waste bags to a licensed asbestos waste disposal facility for safe disposal.
