One of the most common queries we have is concerning Artex / textured coatings that may contain asbestos. The best course of action is to establish if asbestos is present first and then work out what remedials action is required if asbestos is in the coating.
We carry out removal of Artex /textured coatings often in advance of refurbishment works or because clients want a 100% asbestos free house or office. Artex can be left in situ if in good condition and there is no likelihood of it being disturbed. If you are planning to change lighting, remove walls or carry out refurbishment or demolition that requires disturbance of the coated walls or ceilings then removal will be required. We can target the removal works to a smaller area where only small amounts are being carried out such as changing some lighting.
We have carried out numerous projects, most recently in Ham, West Molesey and Kingston where we have removed asbestos coated ceilings throughout a house. Where the ceilings are plasterboard or lath and plaster then the ceiling will need to be removed to ensure all the asbestos is safely removed. Where the ceilings are concrete then we need to scrape the coating from the ceiling. We have carried out jobs like this in Sutton and Twickenham in the last month where the works were in advance of installing a new kitchen and bathroom.
