What is asbestos?
Originally found in rock over 5,000 years ago, asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. Due to its strong, flexible, and fire-resistant qualities, it was added to building materials used for construction purposes throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Asbestos usage was banned in 1999, due to the hazard it poses to health.

Why is asbestos harmful?
Asbestos is mostly safe until it is broken up. When it gets broken up it releases tiny particles that are invisible to the naked eye. These particles can then be inhaled, where they act like barbs hooking into the lining of the lungs. Asbestos particles have been proven to cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other pleural diseases.

Are there different types of asbestos?
Yes, the different types of asbestos are crocidolite, amosite, and chrysotile. While they are all hazardous, crocidolite and amosite are the most dangerous due to being easy to crumble and thus making it easier for dangerous particles to be inhaled.

There is no definitive way to identify asbestos just by looking at it, so it's always best to seek professional asbestos sampling services.

Operating across the whole of Berkshire, Goodbye Asbestos is proud to provide asbestos services throughout the areas of Newbury, Caversham, Earley, Tilehurst, Sonning, Mapledurham, Shiplake, Woodley, Shinfield, Theale, Burghfield, Wargrave, and Tidmarsh.

    Asbestos garage and garage roof removals near Reading

    One of the most common construction areas that used asbestos before 2000 is garages. Particular areas that asbestos could be present include the insulation, lagging, and even the guttering. Should you discover that you have an asbestos garage in Reading, we can be on hand to offer a solution that suits you.

    Goodbye Asbestos can safely remove asbestos roofing sheets from your garage and replace them with GRP fibreglass roofing, which comes with a 20-year guarantee.

    Alternatively, we can dismantle and dispose of the entire garage should you prefer to completely clear the area. We will work with local electricians and plumbers to disconnect any electric and water supplies before carefully and considerately dismantling your garage and leaving the area tidy, clean, and uncontaminated for you to use straight away.

    We only ever dispose of asbestos at licensed, approved waste sites, and we will give you an Environment Agency mandated hazardous waste consignment note to prove that the disposal has been carried out through official channels.
