Asbestos is a hazardous material that was widely used in construction until the late 20th century due to its properties of insulation, durability and resistance to fire. However, its prolonged exposure to humans can lead to serious health problems such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. Therefore, it is important to safely dispose of any asbestos-containing waste, especially in Hampshire which is known for its historical use of the material in construction.
In this article, we will be discussing the proper procedures for disposing of small asbestos sheets in Hampshire, how to find an affordable and specialist asbestos removal company, and the different options available for the safe disposal of hazardous waste.
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that can be found in rocks and soil. Due to its unique properties, it was widely used in the construction industry for insulation, fireproofing, and soundproofing. It was commonly found in buildings constructed before the 1990s, particularly in roofing, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, and insulation.
However, this once-popular material is now known to cause numerous health problems, particularly when the microscopic fibers are inhaled. Prolonged exposure to asbestos can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis - a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the lungs.
Asbestos is classified as hazardous waste, and disposing of it must be done with great care. It is a legal requirement that it is disposed of in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
If you need to dispose of asbestos, it is important that you use a licensed and specialist asbestos removal company. This will ensure that the material is disposed of safely and in compliance with the legal regulations.
