Do you have a kitchen or living room with asbestos floor tiles? Marley floor tiles (as they are often referred to) may be in your hall or bathroom and indeed could be located throughout your property, often hidden beneath existing floor coverings.
There is no immediate need to panic if the floor tiles are in good condition, you’ll be pleased to hear asbestos floor tiles are a very low-risk product.
However, as time has moved on the tiles have probably degraded a little, particularly where gripper rods for carpets have been installed and hence you may be looking to do something about them.
Other composite products such as toilet seats and cisterns, particularly the black Shires-Lynx variety contained some asbestos.
All of these materials mentioned so far are seen as being very low risk asbestos products.
It is because of this that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), the government body who regulate work with asbestos, have made some small exemptions for allowing works with certain asbestos products to be done by people who have received formal training.
Fire Coral Ltd offer just such a course, while it is more commonly delivered to those in the trades there is absolutely no reason why home-owners cannot attend these carefully taught sessions. As a home-owner you would then be in a position to legally & safely remove low-risk asbestos products in or on your property.
We cover everything you would want to know from how to do the work, how to protect yourself and others, how to decontaminate safely and how to dispose of any waste you have generated. We can also include safe, step-by-step work methods detailing how to do the job. You will even have a professional fitting of a high-quality respirator done so you know that the mask you are wearing will protect you from asbestos fibres.
