Asbestos is a hazardous material that was once widely used in construction and manufacturing processes. It was commonly used in building materials such as insulation, tiles, cement sheets, and roofing materials. Exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to serious health conditions such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. If you are planning to renovate or demolish an old building, it is important to identify if asbestos is present and take proper precautions to remove it safely.
We are Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, a professional asbestos removal company based in Hampshire, UK. We provide cost-effective and reliable asbestos removal services to domestic and non-domestic properties across Hampshire and South East England. In this article, we will discuss the importance of asbestos removal, the dangers of asbestos exposure, and how our affordable asbestos removal services can help you manage asbestos in your property.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was commonly used in building materials due to its heat resistance, durability, and insulation properties. There are six types of asbestos fibers, including chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, tremolite, anthophyllite, and actinolite. All types of asbestos fibers are hazardous to health, but some are more dangerous than others.
Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are commonly found in buildings constructed before the year 2000. ACMs can be found in roofing materials such as corrugated sheets and tiles, insulation materials, cement sheets, floor tiles, textured coatings, and pipe insulation. Asbestos-containing materials that are in good condition and left undisturbed generally do not pose a significant health risk. However, if the materials are damaged, disturbed or deteriorated, they can release asbestos fibers into the air.
Exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to serious health conditions, some of which may not appear until many years after exposure. The inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure can take many years to develop and is often fatal. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart, and is almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers, which can lead to difficulty breathing, coughing, and scarring of the lungs.
If you suspect that your property contains asbestos, it is important to take precautions and contact a professional asbestos removal company like Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire. Attempting to remove asbestos-containing materials without the proper training, equipment, and protective gear can pose a serious health risk.
