Asbestos Shed & Concrete Asbestos Clearance in Kingston Upon Thames
If you’re concerned that your garage may be contaminated with asbestos, Clearaway Asbestos are here to help. Whilst it is rare for concrete garage walls to contain traces of asbestos, it is common for corrugated roofing on buildings constructed before 1990 to do so. Should the cement on the roofing be damaged due to weather conditions or other reasons, asbestos fibres can be released into the air. If you are looking asbestos clearance in Kingston Upon Thames, Clearaway Asbestos are here for you!
If inhaled, these fibres pose serious risks to the person’s health, including lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. During our removal process, we first take the unbroken roofing sheets directly to landfill. We will then proceed to remove the walls. We do not require a skip in most cases and can guarantee a swift and neat service.

Depending on your preference, we can fit either galvanised steel box profile roofing, three layers torch on felt roofing, flat roofing or tiled roofing. Alternatively, we can install asbestos-free fibre corrugated cement sheets or corrugated fibreboard roofing. Boxing out is also available to any client who so wishes.

Asbestos Artex & Asbestos Ceiling & Floor Tiles Removal
Artex is a type of textured coating used on walls and ceilings that sometimes contains asbestos. Should you plan on disturbing the artex by sanding, drilling or other means, it is crucial to ensure no deadly asbestos fibres lie within that will be released upon disruption. As it is impossible to identify asbestos upon visual inspection, it will need to be sampled and tested. Clearaway Asbestos have years of experience in asbestos clearance in Kingston Upon Thames.
While old ceiling and floor tiles don’t necessarily contain asbestos, they present more risk than modern tiles. Should tiles with asbestos be damaged in any way, they must be removed immediately to prevent inhalation. It is essential to hire a professional company, as removal and disposal can be hazardous if performed incorrectly.
When removing asbestos, we will always take every precaution to ensure there is no further contamination to the rest of your property. We do so by isolating the problem areas of your home using commercial grade air filters and testing the air quality after cleanup.
