What is asbestos and why should you call our asbestos contractors in Wandsworth, London?
There are three main types of asbestos that were used in production and that still exist today.
- White asbestos, known as chrysolite: Part of the Serpentine group of minerals, this is a white-grey colour and is flexible and strong. This is the most common type of asbestos found in building materials.
- Brown asbestos, known as Amosite: This is part of the amphibole group and is the second most common type of asbestos found in building products.
- Blue asbestos or Crocidolite: Found mostly in South Africa, this type of asbestos was mostly used in textiles.
Asbestos fibres were often tightly bound in a mixture of cement, vinyl or another material because they made it more fire resistant and strong. If these products are broken or damaged in any way, there is a risk that the fibres can be inhaled into the lungs. Breathing in asbestos is now known to cause deadly diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma. These diseases sometimes take years to develop so by the time that you know there is a problem, it is too late to do anything. Therefore, it is always a good idea to come and get a professional to look at your property if it was built before 2000.
Asbestos disposal and removal costs vary according to the type of asbestos which is found and its location. Our service is affordable and fair and we will always advise you on the most cost effective solutions for your requirements.
