What is asbestos and why should I get my asbestos garage in Cheam or Belmont removed?
Despite what many people think, asbestos is not a man-made material but rather a naturally-occurring mineral, which is found in the ground. Mined all around the world, it was mainly found in large quantities in Russia, South Africa and Canada. From the 1950s to the 1970s, it was considered a brilliant building material because of it is chemically resistant, strong and very thermally efficient.
Asbestos was often mixed with other building materials, such as cement and is commonly found in garages, sheds, barns and other outbuildings. It was discovered that asbestos was responsible for a number of very serious diseases, including asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. It is estimated now that 4000 people a year die due to asbestos–related diseases and it is widely considered to be the biggest workplace killer in the world.
