Just after some info as wondering how fail safe asbestos removal is. Went somewhere recently where they had just had it removed. All done properly with a company and certificate of reoccupation released etc. It was asbestos insulation board. Does the fact that it was done properly by a company mean there is definitely no danger and no chance of fibres hanging around in little pockets etc? Hoping there's no scope for error. Thanks
I hate to say it, but we had experience with a rogue asbestos removal company a few years back. They seemed legit with certificates etc. We didn’t realise for around a month or so after removal, when we found a small bit left behind (that had been disturbed). We then got another company in who were very very thorough indeed.
Yes. They have now been prosecuted against as they carried out similar work on public buildings as well, so it wasn’t just us finding a crappy company IYSWIM. They appeared legit and had all the necessary licenses etc, they just didn’t follow protocol on the jobs themselves. I’m sure this isn’t common though.
