What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a term for a group of six minerals made of microscopic heat-resistant fibres and was often used to insulate buildings. When its dangers were discovered in 1999, asbestos was banned in the UK. However, many buildings constructed before this time may still contain asbestos in their floors, roofs, ceilings and walls.
Once the fibres from asbestos become airborne, they are easily inhaled and accumulate within the body, causing cancers and other deadly diseases. There is no known method of reversing its impact, making it incredibly dangerous for residents or professionals in buildings where asbestos has been used. Safe and thorough asbestos removal is essential to protecting lives and ensuring your property is compliant with health and safety standards.
Typically, residents should not perform asbestos removal as it is a highly dangerous task which requires specific expertise and equipment. Disturbing the materials containing asbestos can easily release fibres into the air, which, if inhaled, can cause cancer and other fatal diseases. In the case of removal, exposure to these fibres can be very sudden and potent, leading to a higher risk of health problems. Using specialist equipment and an experienced team, West Yorkshire Garage Doors can carry out asbestos roof removal across yorkshire. By isolating the asbestos-contaminated areas, we ensure that fibres do not stray into your living or work environment before safely eliminating asbestos from your garage.
