Asbestos removal and waste collections in Merton and Tooting
Here at Goodbye Asbestos, we apply a common sense and cost-effective approach to asbestos removal in Merton, Tooting and the nearby areas.
What is asbestos? Asbestos is a naturally-occurring fibre that was mined and used in the manufacture of building materials since the 1950s. It was known as the
miracle mineral because of its heat and insulation properties and its versatility. It was widely mixed with other materials, such as cement, until it was banned in 1999. If you live in a building that was built before then, then it is likely that some parts of the building contain asbestos in some form.
Asbestos is now recognised as a highly dangerous material and exposure to asbestos fibres are known to causes highly serious diseases, including lung cancer and asbestosis. These diseases take a long time to develop, often decades, so it is often too late to do anything about your exposure to asbestos fibres.
