How do I manage an asbestos problem?

Repair or remove!

Repair usually involves a sealing or covering asbestos material.  Sealing involves treating the material with a sealant that either binds the asbestos fibres together or coats the material so the fibres are not released.

Pipe, furnace, and boiler insulation (ACM’S) can sometimes be repaired this way.  This should be done only by a professional, and is trained to handle asbestos safely.

Artex asbestos testing surveyors are trained to come into your home and take safe samples.

Covering (enclosure) involves placing something over or around the material that may contain asbestos to prevent the release of fibres.

Exposed insulated piping may be covered with a protective wrap or jacket.  With any type of repair, the asbestos remains in place.

Repair is usually cheaper than removal, but it may make later removal of asbestos, if necessary, more difficult and costly.

Repairs can either be major or minor, so get in touch with ATG for artex asbestos testing survey in Glasgow, we are here for any advise and want to help you with easy peace of mind for you and your family. Please be safe.
