Following the removal of asbestos, it is a legal requirement to make sure that the material has been removed safely and that the area is suitable for occupation. This process is known as four-stage clearance. At Thames Laboratories, we have a dedicated team able to undertake this work, alongside supervisory management of asbestos abatement projects.

Leak monitoring

Leak monitoring is a vital part of any asbestos abatement project and is performed during the asbestos-removal operation in the areas protected by the contractor's enclosure. These tests are the only means of ensuring that asbestos fibres are not released from the enclosure and do not contaminate the surrounding areas.
