What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a building material widely used during the mid-20th century. It was hailed as a world-class insulator and touted for its fireproof qualities. But it also hid a dark secret. The asbestos fibres themselves turned out to be a significant health hazard.

Although banned since 1999 countless homes across the UK still contain legacy asbestos items that pose a potential threat, and it is estimated that up to 5,000 people per year still die from asbestos exposure in the UK.

Importance of an Asbestos Survey

If your home was built during the 20th century there is a good chance it contains some asbestos items. The team at Asbestos Gone can conduct an asbestos survey that identifies them.

Like all things, asbestos products break down over time. When this happens the fibres become airborne and are inhaled by people in the home, potentially leading to all manner of respiratory distress and even mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive type of lung cancer.

Asbestos is not easy to spot. Therefore it is crucial that you hire a qualified professional to conduct an asbestos survey.
