Why is asbestos abatement needed?

abatementBefore people fully recognised the hazards of using asbestos for construction, many builders and property renovators used fire-resistant asbestos in commercial and domestic properties. It can often be found in cladding, pipe insulation, boiler rooms and textured coatings for ceilings and wall

Asbestos may have been present in your premises for decades and as long as it stays undisturbed and in good condition, it poses little threat. However, there is always the risk that anyone doing work on the building could damage the asbestos and release the dangerous fibres.

The inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer. In the UK alone asbestos related diseases are estimated to kill up to 3000 people a year. It can take anywhere from 15 to 60 years after first exposure before these serious diseases become apparent.
