What to do if you find Asbestos
If you think your property has products or materials that could potentially contain asbestos, we can help confirm its presence and put in place a management programme to monitor or remove it if necessary. Not all Asbestos needs to be removed, in some circumstances, as long as it's undamaged, it could be deemed safe to leave in place with regular monitoring. Damaged or exposed Asbestos can have serious health implications if inhaled, so if you find any product containing Asbestos in a distressed condition, call TAG Asbestos immediately.

We are qualified to remove all types of non-licenced asbestos and cover both residential and commercial properties in Fleet, Farnborough and the surrounding area.

Asbestos can be very difficult to identify without sending off a sample for testing. An Asbestos survey will confirm the presence of Asbestos materials throughout your property and provide sufficient information for a risk assessment so that a management plan can be put in place. There are two types of survey depending on your requirements, a Management Survey and a Refurbishment and Demolition survey.
How to identify Asbestos in your home or business.
We’ve probably all heard of asbestos and know that its dangerous, but did you know that there’s a high probability your home contains asbestos if it was built or renovated pre-2000. Asbestos can be found in just about any property built in the 20th Century including, Schools, Factories, Retirement Homes, Public Housed and residential properties.
Asbestos is a highly toxic, naturally occurring mineral made of soft flexible fibres that demonstrate a resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. This makes it a popular ingredient in construction materials designed to insulate and withstand high-temperature changes. The flexible nature of asbestos made it a key component to increasing the strength and durability of many products including Cloth, Paper, Cement and Plastics.
We now know that asbestos is extremely harmful and contributes to over 5000 deaths a year. When this substance is damaged or disturbed, tiny fibres become airborne. As we breathe in these toxic particles, fibres get permanently stuck in the lungs, over time, these fibres become inflamed causing scarring and eventually serious disease. Known conditions resulting from Asbestos exposure include Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer, Asbestosis and Pleural Thickening. These diseases can take years to develop but once a diagnosis is confirmed, it's too late!
Asbestos was mixed with so many products and materials in its day, it is very difficult to identify. Today we use products that look like asbestos but contain different materials. The only way to be sure is to sample and test the elements in a lab. Below are some examples of commonly found asbestos products found in our homes and offices. If you think there is any chance your house contains asbestos, contact TAG Asbestos.
