Roof Cleaning Systems Ltd was created to fulfil a growing demand for asbestos roof cleaning. Although the use of asbestos in buildings was only banned in the U.K. in 1999, many factory units and buildings built in the 1950’s to 1980’s are in need of repair.
Roof Cleaning Systems Ltd’s sister company Asbestostrip was founded in 1981 by Graham Gwilliam, as an asbestos removal contractor, his son Richard joined in 1989. The company developed and then launched the Safestrip System (Red Box) to safely remove asbestos by controlled wetting.
Asbestostrip Innovations Ltd was established in 1990 to market the Safestrip System and since then have become the recognised experts in the safe handling of asbestos. The Safestrip System is acknowledged as the world leading process.
We first used our innovative roof cleaning technology in 2002 to repair 1940’s constructed buildings at UKAEA Harwell, Oxfordshire.
Roof Cleaning Systems Ltd (RCS) started in 2009 to focus on cleaning and coating asbestos roofs and have successfully completed numerous asbestos roof repairs. Since then we have further developed the process and our latest cleaning system enables us to work with approved contractors and coating companies to truly meet the needs of this market.
