Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was extensively used for building and insulation purposes until it was banned in the UK in 1999. Its heat-resistant properties made it ideal for industrial and commercial use, but its harmful effects on human health have led to its eradication from construction and manufacturing sectors. Asbestos can cause cancer and other lung diseases, and it poses a serious health hazard if not dealt with appropriately.

We are a professional asbestos removal company that operates in Hampshire and South East England, offering safe and cost-effective asbestos removal services to residential and commercial clients. We pride ourselves on our expertise, professionalism, and commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality service.
Asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals. As a result, they were widely used in building materials from the 1950s to the 1990s. Asbestos can be found in a variety of building materials, including:
When asbestos-containing materials are damaged, they release tiny fibres into the air, which can be inhaled into the lungs. The more asbestos fibres you breathe in, the greater the risk to your health. Asbestos exposure can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other serious respiratory diseases. It can take years for these diseases to manifest, which is why early detection and intervention are crucial.
