#How To Remove Corrugated Asbestos Sheets In Hampshire
Asbestos was once a common building material in the UK, used in everything from walls and ceilings to guttering and roofing materials. Unfortunately, it has since been proven to be a dangerous carcinogen, and there are strict regulations governing how it can be safely removed and disposed of. If you have an old shed, garage, or other building in Hampshire that contains asbestos roofing sheets, it is important that you have them removed by a licensed professional. In this guide, we will discuss the process of removing corrugated asbestos sheets in Hampshire and how Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire can help.

##The Risks Of Asbestos
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used in building materials for many years due to its strength, insulation properties, and fire resistance. Unfortunately, when it is disturbed or damaged, it can release dangerous fibres into the air that, if inhaled, can cause serious health problems. The most common diseases associated with asbestos exposure are asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. These diseases can take years or even decades to develop, which is why it is important to take precautions when handling asbestos.

##Asbestos Products In Roofing
Corrugated asbestos roofing sheets were a popular building material used in the UK until the mid-1980s. They are easy to identify as they are typically grey, brown, blue or green in colour and have a wavy or corrugated texture. Asbestos roofing sheets may be found in garages, sheds, and agricultural buildings. If you suspect that your roof may contain asbestos, do not attempt to remove it yourself.
