Use our FREE HANDY Pre-Demolition Checklist to navigate your way through planning your Demolition.
To remove more than 10m2 of Asbestos Containing Material you need a “B” class Asbestos removal licence. If you have less, and wish to remove it yourself, you should be extremely cautious. Asbestos poses a health risk during removal, packaging, transport and disposal, so it is very important to handle it safely. Seek professional advice. Note we do not provide Asbestos Removal services unless as part of a part or whole Demolition.
Check with your local council or authority as to their regulations for disposal, as some waste stations are not approved to receive Asbestos waste.
Friable Asbestos is extremely dangerous and must only be removed by an “A” class removalist. The health risks associated with this type of material are far greater than of bonded Asbestos material.

Cancelling your power can take weeks so make an early start on this and be sure to let your power supplier know it is a Demolition Cancellation.
