Asbestos – The Dangers
Asbestos has been known as a dangerous material for many years – it has even been banned in the UK since 1999. For any homes that were built before the year 2000, a lot of the materials that were used to build properties during that time used asbestos as it provided a flexible and soft addition to a lot of tougher building materials, such as cement.
The dangers of asbestos only become a danger if the asbestos fibres are released into the air and inhaled by another person. Asbestos has been proven to have caused several different illnesses in humans, some of them being fatal. The most common diseases that asbestos is linked to include mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. It is specifically common in workers that have worked in industrial areas, shipyard workers, builders, plumbers and other similar industries. It can also be found in houses and domestic buildings. In domestic housing, asbestos was used within piping, ceilings, cement and much more, therefore it could pose a risk within a domestic setting.
If asbestos becomes crumbled or is disturbed, it can potentially cause problems. Friable asbestos is easily crumbled and therefore can be very dangerous if those fibres were to be consumed or inhaled by someone. Asbestos should be dealt with as soon as possible in order to prevent any health issues or fatalities. If you suspect that there is asbestos in your property or building, you must let an asbestos specialist know. Get in contact with All About Asbestos and we will sort everything out for you
Asbestos Removal Services
Before you have any asbestos removed, you’ll need to have had an asbestos survey carried out at your property. This will enable us to identify the asbestos that is present and also allow us to work out the best plan of action for the future. In some instances, it may be safer to leave the asbestos and alternatively, sometimes there is no other option but to remove the fibres. It is hugely important that asbestos is managed correctly.
Asbestos removal must only be conducted by an experienced individual to ensure safety and also to make sure that the job is carried out properly. We would not recommend that you carry out an asbestos removal yourself, always hire out a trained individual or company to take care of this for you
