Asbestos Floor Tiles Removal

Asbestos Floor Tile Removal

Asbestos is a harmful material that was commonly used in UK building construction and renovation until the 1990s. One of its uses was in the manufacturing of floor tiles, which were often used in homes and commercial buildings. Asbestos floor tiles pose a significant health risk when disturbed, as they release fibres that can cause serious respiratory problems, including cancer. Therefore, it is essential to take great care when removing asbestos floor tiles to avoid releasing harmful fibres.

Removing Asbestos Floor Tiles should only be carried out by fully qualified Asbestos Operatives. Get A Quote

Here are some guidelines for removing asbestos floor tiles safely:

Check for asbestos: Before removing any floor tiles, it is crucial to determine whether they contain asbestos. If you are unsure, it is best to assume that they do contain asbestos and take appropriate precautions.

Wear protective equipment: Asbestos fibres can be harmful when inhaled or ingested. Therefore, it is essential to wear protective gear, such as a respirator, disposable coveralls, gloves, and eye protection.

Wet the floor tiles: Wetting the floor tiles helps to prevent the release of asbestos fibres into the air. You can use a spray bottle or a garden hose to wet the tiles.

Remove the tiles: Use a putty knife or a floor scraper to gently lift the tiles. Avoid breaking or damaging the tiles, as this can release asbestos fibres. Double bag the asbestos tiles red and clear bagss for disposal.

Clean the area: After removing the tiles, use a HEPA filter vacuum cleaner to clean the area thoroughly. Wipe down surfaces with a damp cloth to ensure any remaining asbestos fibres are removed.

Dispose of the tiles: Asbestos floor tiles must be disposed of properly and legally to avoid any potential health risks. Contact your local waste management department or a licensed asbestos removal contractor to determine the proper disposal methods. Click Here for Asbestos Floor Tile Collection

David, the boys were great. Polite, honest, and diligent. I thought they were gonna bail when they said there wasn't much room on their van yesterday, but they took what they could and then came back for the rest. On the back of the service, I will use you again. There's a larger garage that in time needs to be addressed. When that time comes I'll get you to remove and take away that abspestos roof. Darren SE6

Excellent service from Dan and Ryan at Shadow who removed a large asbestos water tank from a small cupboard in our flat. We didn't think it would be possible to get it out in one piece but they did!

If you need to remove a water tank from an impossibly confined space then call the Ryan & Dan show. As well doing the job in incredibly quick time you also get a free, highly comical, running commentary. Someone give these blokes a TV show.
