Asbestos is one of the most notorious hazardous substances, and can cause serious health problems if inhaled. Asbestos fibres can become lodged in the lungs, leading to diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

It is important to emphasize that asbestos is a highly hazardous substance, and should never be handled or removed by anyone other than a qualified asbestos specialist. DIY asbestos removal is not only dangerous, but it is also illegal. Only trained and licensed asbestos removal specialists are authorized to remove asbestos-containing materials, and they must follow strict safety procedures to ensure that the asbestos fibres are contained and disposed of properly. Attempting to remove asbestos yourself can lead to serious health problems, as well as legal action.
Asbestos cement pipes were widely used in water supply systems until the 1980s. These pipes can contain up to 30% asbestos, making them a potential health hazard if they become damaged or disturbed. If you have asbestos cement pipes in your property or workplace in Hampshire, it is important to have them inspected and, if necessary, removed by a qualified asbestos specialist. If the pipes are damaged, they should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible to avoid any risk of asbestos fibres being released into the air.
Water company trailers are another potential source of asbestos contamination. These trailers were often constructed using asbestos-containing materials, and may still be in use today. If you have a water company trailer in Hampshire, it is important to have it inspected by a qualified asbestos specialist to determine whether it contains asbestos materials. If the trailer does contain asbestos, it should be removed and disposed of safely by a licensed asbestos disposal company.
Asbestos was widely used in construction and manufacturing until the 1980s, and many buildings in Hampshire, especially older buildings, may still contain asbestos.

An old asbestos centre can provide testing and inspection services to determine whether your property contains asbestos, and can advise you on the best course of action if asbestos is found.
