Asbestos removal near Bletchingley: What do you need to know?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in rock formations. It used to be mined and its long flexible fibres were used within building materials. There are six types of asbestos but three main ones: Chrysotile (white asbestos), crocidolite (blue asbestos), and amosite (brown asbestos). It is fire and chemical resistant, so was used widely in the building trade, in cement for roofing, flooring, and insulation, as a handful of examples.
If people are routinely exposed to asbestos over time, they are at greater risk of developing a number of deadly illnesses including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
If it is in a good condition, asbestos does not pose a significant health risk and it can be carefully monitored but if it is in poor condition, it will need to be removed, so you know that it will not pose a risk to yourself or others.
