Rainbow International's Asbestos Testing & Removal Cleaning Services

Rainbow International has a clear duty of care to policyholders and customers, to risk assess for asbestos as part of any initial reports. For any removals of asbestos materials that require a licensed contractor - Rainbow International has great relationships with licensed contractors, meaning we can offer a comprehensive asbestos removal service for any situation.

Rainbow International has a number of technicians within the network who are trained to carry out Notifiable Non Licensed Work (NNLW) of asbestos removal. These technicians are required to attend annual training courses, carry a photo card ID and are also regulated under HSE guidelines.

Under NNLW guidelines from CAR12 regulations, we only deal with chrysolite; and not crocidolite or amosite.

Chrysolite (white asbestos) can be found in cement, vinyl or thermoplastic floor tiles, textured coating (i.e artex) and bitumen.
