Edinburgh's Trusted Asbestos Encapsulation Service

Asbestos Encapsulation is Our Specialty

We offer Asbestos encapsulation services in Edinburgh.

Asbestos encapsulation is the process of sealing asbestos-containing materials in a special type of fabric. Using this method, asbestos materials can be safely removed from a building and transported to a disposal site.

This type of encapsulation allows you to work in a safe, controlled environment, without the risk of exposing others to the harmful fibres. It is essential not to try and remove asbestos yourself, as the fibres can become airborne and pose a serious health risk. Asbestos encapsulation is one of the most efficient ways to deal with asbestos.

It can be a risky task to remove the asbestos, due to the fact that the fibres can become airborne and cause harm. A professional asbestos encapsulation service can help to prevent this from occurring.

Asbestos encapsulation can be a cost-effective alternative to asbestos removal, as it preserves the integrity of the ACM and reduces the risk of exposure to asbestos fibers.

Benefits of asbestos encapsulation services

A benefit of asbestos encapsulation is that it prevents the fibres from becoming airborne, which is a significant risk when removing the asbestos. This can ensure the health and safety of people in the surrounding area, and provide a safe working environment for the removal team.

As well as preventing any potential airborne fibres, asbestos encapsulation also prevents them from seeping into the ground and surrounding soil. This is extremely important, as the fibres can be very damaging to both humans and the environment if not dealt with properly. If they were left in the ground, they could easily become airborne again and pose a serious risk to the health of the surrounding area.

The encapsulation service also enables you to keep the asbestos in the building, if it’s deemed too dangerous or expensive to remove it. This is an important consideration when determining which method to use, and which professional asbestos removal services to hire.

Asbestos encapsulation is not a permanent solution and requires regular maintenance to ensure that the sealant remains effective.

My Glasgow home had an asbestos inspection performed, and the service was prompt, pleasant, and educational. An asbestos survey completed in two days has greatly aided my building's construction. Excellent customer service throughout the entire process.

My home underwent an asbestos survey by Asbestos Removal Glasgow Ltd, who also checked the entire property for asbestos. The report was quite effective and returned earlier than anticipated. The office personnel and asbestos assessor were highly competent, and they helped me avoid spending tens of thousands of pounds on a new home!

Asbestos encapsulation methods

There are a few different methods used to encapsulate asbestos. One way to do this is by sealing the asbestos in with a specialised substance, such as a resin. This type of encapsulation is known as “impregnation”, and it can be used to seal small asbestos-containing materials.

Another method is known as “encapsulation” or “encapsulation with sealing”. This method involves wrapping the asbestos in a fabric barrier, such as polyethylene or polypropylene. These fabrics are breathable, so there is no risk of the asbestos becoming damp.

The third method is known as “encapsulation with sealing and covering”. This is a combination of the above two methods. It involves sealing the asbestos in a fabric, and then sealing that with a substance, such as resin. This is the most effective method, as it prevents the asbestos from becoming wet.

Asbestos fibers can cause serious health problems if they are inhaled, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

Asbestos encapsulation is a process in which asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are coated with a sealant to prevent the release of asbestos fibers into the air.

safety measures

To ensure safe asbestos encapsulation, the removal team should always wear protective equipment, such as overalls and respirators. This equipment protects them from the harmful fibres, and also helps to prevent the escape of fibres into the surrounding area.

It is essential to protect the surrounding area, as the fibres can be extremely damaging to the health of both humans and the environment. The removal team should also take care to contain the asbestos. It should be placed in a sealed bag and labelled as asbestos.

It is also important to transport the asbestos in a sealed vehicle, and take care to seal it again when it is being unload. It is not safe to dispose of asbestos in the same place as other materials that are being destroyed.


All Question Answer

Asbestos Encapsulation Frequently Asked Question

How is asbestos encapsulation performed?

Asbestos encapsulation is typically performed by applying a sealant to the surface of the ACM, which creates a barrier that prevents the release of asbestos fibers.

How long does asbestos encapsulation last?

The lifespan of an asbestos encapsulation can vary depending on the condition of the ACM and the type of sealant used. In general, encapsulation can last between 10-15 years.

Can I perform asbestos encapsulation myself?

No, asbestos encapsulation should only be performed by licensed professionals. Attempting to encapsulate asbestos yourself is illegal and can be dangerous.

Is asbestos encapsulation permanent?

Asbestos encapsulation is not permanent and will require regular maintenance to ensure that the sealant remains effective.

What are the limitations of asbestos encapsulation?

The limitations of asbestos encapsulation include that it may not be suitable for all types of ACM, that it may not be possible to remove the asbestos after encapsulation, and that it requires regular maintenance to be effective.

Why is asbestos encapsulation necessary?

Asbestos encapsulation is necessary because asbestos fibers can cause serious health problems if they are inhaled, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.
