Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in construction and industry until its hazardous properties were discovered in the late 1970s. It was commonly used in insulation, roofing, flooring, and various other construction materials. Asbestos can be found in different forms such as white, brown and blue, with white being the most common.
Asbestos is a known carcinogen, which means it can cause cancer. It poses a risk to human health when the fibres are released into the air and breathed in. When asbestos fibres are inhaled, they can become trapped in the lungs and cause damage to lung tissue. Long term exposure to asbestos can cause several types of cancer, such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.
Asbestos must be handled with care to prevent the release of fibres into the air. It is essential to hire a professional asbestos removal company, such as Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, to dispose of white asbestos safely and legally. Only trained and licensed individuals should handle asbestos.
Asbestos falls under the category of hazardous waste and strict regulations must be followed when disposing of it.
