Simple Acts

For the removal of asbestos materials that may be removed with a simple operation (especially bonded asbestos materials) and even for maintenance and repair work where asbestos may be released, a contractor must always comply with a number of conditions aimed at protecting the personnel he employs.

Asbestos removal after a disaster

After an emergency such as fire or storm damage, a risk assessment is conducted to choose the best possible technique to remove the asbestos from the contaminated materials. Again, we can carry out the necessary interventions, subject to government approval.

What is asbestos

Asbestos is a fibrous material that was very popular until the 1980s. It was cheap, strong, hard-wearing, heat-resistant, etc, with more than 3,500 building applications. Asbestos is found – in various situations – in almost every older building, from the basement to the roof: Asbestos (corrugated) sheets, asbestos tiles, asbestos insulation, asbestos slates, asbestos sealant – you name it. In1998, the use of asbestos was banned. So all houses built before 1998 may contain asbestos.

Health hazard

It is well known that asbestos fibres are extremely harmful to your health. Asbestos consists of very fine fibres. These are extremely harmful when it is present in dusty form, invisible to the naked eye, floating in the ambient space where they can be inhaled.


These fibres remain in the lungs and enter the lung membrane from the lung tissue. This can cause mesothelioma, asbestos pleurisy, lung cancer, cancer of the larynx, asbestosis, etc…. Asbestos-containing material is particularly hazardous if it is removed or processed incorrectly, as fibres can be released.

Types of asbestos

There are two groups of asbestos. The difference between the two groups is in their mineral origin and geometric structure.



Asbestos type = chrysotile These fibres are long hollow capillaries and often form curved bundles with split ends.



Asbestos type = crocidolite, amosite, tremolite, actinolite, and anthophyllite. These fibres are long and needle-shaped.


The following types are the most common:


Chrysotile (white asbestos)

Found in more than 90% of all asbestos applications


Amosite (brown asbestos)

This type of asbestos is an iron-magnesium silicate


Crocidolite (blue asbestos)

This type is an iron and sodium silicate
