In Hampshire, asbestos was widely used in building construction during the 20th century because of its high durability, heat resistance, and insulating properties. However, it was later discovered that prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious respiratory health problems, including mesothelioma, a type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs. Due to this danger, asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) used in construction and refurbishment works need to be removed and disposed of safely.
Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire is a professional asbestos removal company in Hampshire that offers cost-effective and efficient asbestos removal services. Our experienced and trained team can help you safely remove asbestos-containing materials from your home or building following the best practices and safety guidelines.
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was extensively used in building materials until the late 1990s. It has strong tensile strength, resistance to heat, and chemical damage, making it ideal for insulation, soundproofing, and fireproofing purposes. Asbestos has six naturally occurring types, including chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite.
Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious respiratory health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis, a lung disease that affects breathing. The symptoms of these conditions may take years or even decades to develop, making it difficult to diagnose.
Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were used in various building materials, including insulation, roofing, flooring, cement, pipe insulation, and acoustic tiles. If your home or building was constructed before the year 2000, there is a high chance that it contains some ACMs.
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and fatal type of cancer caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers. It affects the lining of the lungs or abdomen and can take several decades to develop. Mesothelioma is difficult to treat, and the prognosis is poor.
Asbestos exposure can occur when asbestos-containing materials are damaged, disturbed, or removed without following proper safety procedures. When ACMs are damaged or disturbed, they release tiny asbestos fibers into the air, which can be inhaled and cause serious health problems.
Removal of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) requires careful planning and execution to minimize the risk of exposure to asbestos fibers. Here's how we ensure safe and efficient asbestos removal:
Our team of professionals will conduct a thorough inspection of your home or building to identify any ACMs. We will take samples of suspected materials and send them to a laboratory for testing to confirm if they contain asbestos.
Once we receive the test results, we will assess the extent of ACMs and the level of risk to your health. We will then develop a comprehensive plan to remove the materials safely and efficiently.
Before we start the actual work, we will seal off the area and install air filtration systems to prevent the spread of asbestos dust and fibers. We will also wear appropriate protective gear, including respirators and coveralls, to reduce the risk of exposure.
Our trained and licensed asbestos removal team will carefully remove the identified ACMs using specialized tools and techniques. We will wet the materials down to minimize the release of fibers and carefully collect the debris in sealed containers.
After the asbestos-containing materials are removed, we will thoroughly clean the area using HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuums to remove any remaining dust and fibers. We will also conduct air quality tests to ensure that the area is safe for re-occupancy.
We will dispose of the asbestos-containing materials safely and in accordance with the relevant regulations. We will transport the sealed containers to an authorized asbestos disposal site for proper disposal.
