Photo Gallery

Forth Asbestos Services Ltd provide high quality low cost independent asbestos management solutions.


Our Photo gallery contains examples of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) identified during asbestos surveys carried out over a number of years. With the exception of Photo No.1, all materials have been poorly managed over their lifetime. This has resulted in ongoing damage or poor removal as part of site demolition work.

A lot of building owners have found out; very little has changed, even today we are still visiting sites with similar issues. Poor planning, surveying and awareness training has resulted in plumbers, electricians, IT service engineers etc being unnecessarily exposed to asbestos as part of their works.

The time and cost of cleaning up damage if identified early enough can be expensive. In addition, the potential for future health related claims far outweigh the cost of planning the asbestos survey prior to starting a project.

Our FAQs

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

If there is asbestos in your property and it is in good condition, there is no need to have it removed.

If the asbestos material is damaged it may be possible to remove the damaged section and seal any exposed areas, however in most cases full removal may be the best option. Advise on this should be sought on a case-by-case basis.

Where asbestos has been discovered as part of an asbestos refurbishment survey for the property and the asbestos is likely to be disturbed as part of the works it should be removed. If, however the asbestos is in good condition and can be safely enclosed for the duration of the work behind another non asbestos material e.g. timber then this option may be suitable as it would avoid the need for unnecessary removals and associated costs.

If a property is due to be demolished, then all asbestos materials as identified within the asbestos demolition survey report should be removed prior to demolition of the building.

What Our Customers Say

Steve Butcher

Stuart carried out a refurbishment survey for a house we purchased. He gave great advice over the phone and in person, explained the whole process, and even popped back after the survey to confirm one extra question. We now know what we're dealing with and have clear next steps to deal with the asbestos that was found. Highly recommend.

I decided to fix a damaged wall and during the process I suspected there could be Asbestos present. I then emailed Forth Asbestos late on a Thursday night and was answered straight away. Stuart came over the next morning, collected the samples and delivered the results in the afternoon on the same day. He was extremely helpful and gave me recommendations on what to do throughout the whole process. I strongly recommend!
