We’re the safe choice for asbestos removal in Northampton and surrounding areas

It is not automatically the case that any and all asbestos discovered in a Northamptonshire property will need to be removed – in some cases, it may be possible for the asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) to be left in place, managed, and monitored over time.

However, in some situations where asbestos is found, the condition of the substance and the likelihood of disturbance, combined with the perilous risks this mineral is known to pose to human health, might necessitate a careful asbestos removal operation.

Northamptonshire is far from “just another” part of England; the county is picturesque, has a proud history, and is home to around 740,000 people.

Current UK law on the management of asbestos is very strict, in light of the potentially fatal health conditions that can arise when asbestos is swallowed or breathed in. So, you will want to ensure you hire insured, certified, and licensed asbestos removal professionals when you wish to take ACMs out of your building.

Our asbestos removal professionals in Northampton can be quickly on hand at your site where the now-banned fibrous silicate mineral might be present. We have an excellent track record of safely removing asbestos from practically any type of building or land, drawing upon industry-leading resources and equipment to make sure the job is done to the highest standard.

Whether the ACMs that you wish to have removed are at a premises in Northampton, Corby, Kettering, Rushden, Wellingborough, or elsewhere in this thriving county, you are welcome to enquire to us to receive your free quote for commercial asbestos removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

The processes of asbestos removal, disposal, and remediation can understandably cause confusion for many people who are looking to have asbestos removed from their properties in the East Midlands.

With that in mind, we have below answered some of the most common questions that commercial property owners and managers ask about asbestos removal. If there is anything you are still unsure about, please reach out to a member of our team.

What should you do if you find asbestos?

If you come across materials at your premises that you suspect contain asbestos, you should stop any work you are doing immediately, and carry out a risk assessment. You will not be able to confirm by sight alone whether a particular material consists of asbestos. This is why you should arrange for an asbestos survey, so that you can have the suspected ACMs sampled and analysed by professionals.

If the materials are confirmed – as a consequence of this process – to be ACMs, this (along with other factors, such as condition and risk of disturbance) will inform the decisions you take on whether to have them removed, or instead managed and monitored over time.

Can you remove asbestos yourself?

Not all work with asbestos is classed as “licensable” work by the HSE. This means it may be legally acceptable for a non-licensed individual to remove asbestos cement products, such as roof sheeting, provided that the material is carefully handled without breaking up.

However, most higher-risk work involving asbestos – including the removal of sprayed coatings (limpet asbestos) and/or asbestos pipe lagging – will require that the person carrying out the job has a licence from the HSE.

Even putting to one side the question of whether it will be legally necessary for you to hold a HSE licence before you attempt to remove asbestos yourself, we would advise against you carrying out any “amateur” asbestos removal in Northampton. This is because unskilled asbestos removal can easily lead to dangerous fibres being released from the ACMs, thereby potentially putting at risk the health of anyone nearby.

In practice, then, you should almost certainly not be trying to remove asbestos yourself, unless you are a licensed, competent, and experienced asbestos removal professional.

Is there HSE guidance for asbestos removal available?

The HSE website features extensive information and advice on asbestos safety, including on how you can ensure safe removal of the substance from your premises in Northamptonshire. The HSE’s own site is also where you can find various asbestos-related publications available for free download, such as Managing and working with asbestos under the L143 series code.

Don’t forget that our Learning Centre at Oracle Solutions consists of a database of articles that provide detailed information on a wide range of aspects of asbestos removal and management

Why should I use Oracle Solutions to remove or repair my asbestos?

We have an excellent reputation for our services in asbestos removal in Northampton. We hold a licence from the HSE that enables us to undertake all types of asbestos removal and repair work. This means you won’t need to worry about whether the asbestos removal work we undertake for you will comply with current UK regulations.

Furthermore, we hold the highest level of professional indemnity insurance in the asbestos industry, covering our clients for £5 million. Other providers of asbestos removal services in Northamptonshire – whether in such areas as Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, or Daventry – are likely to not have this type of insurance at all, or they may only have a very low level of cover.

Do you need to be licensed by the HSE to work on all asbestos materials?

As we addressed above, it is not the case that work on asbestos materials can only be carried out by someone who holds a licence from the HSE. Certain forms of asbestos work may be exempt from requiring a licence, subject to fulfilling certain conditions, such as being sporadic and of low intensity.

Nonetheless, the HSE urges against any attempts to repair or remove any asbestos materials by those who have not received any training for non-licensed asbestos work.

We would very much echo this advice here at Oracle Solutions. Please contact us today for advice and guidance on how any ACMs at your Northamptonshire property can be removed in a safe and compliant manner.
