Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was once a popular material used in construction due to its excellent insulating and fire-resistant properties. However, after its links to lung cancer and other diseases were discovered, asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999.
If you are a homeowner, landlord, or business owner in Hampshire and suspect that your property contains asbestos, you might be wondering if you can dispose of it yourself. The short answer is no. Asbestos is hazardous and requires a licensed professional to handle it safely. In this article, we will explore why asbestos removal must be left to the professionals and how Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire can help.

Asbestos is a highly hazardous material that poses serious risks to human health. When asbestos fibres are released into the air and inhaled, they can cause fatal diseases, such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis.
Removing asbestos requires specialist knowledge, training, and equipment, which is why it is illegal for anyone to handle asbestos without a license. Asbestos removal specialists, such as Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, have undergone rigorous training and are licensed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to handle asbestos.

Exposure to asbestos fibres: If asbestos fibres are released into the air during removal, they can be inhaled and cause fatal diseases.
Environmental pollution: Non-licensed asbestos removal can also pollute the environment, contaminating soil, air, and water sources.
