Asbestos was commonly used in the construction of older buildings. It is made from crushed silicate rocks, the fibres of which have been shown to be connected to certain cancers and other dangerous conditions. As there are health risks associated with this material, asbestos is usually removed from premises. It is essential that the removal of asbestos is done in a safe manner to prevent the fibres from being released into the air. We offer services which include asbestos removal from all buildings being refurbished or demolished that require a survey before necessary asbestos treatment work can begin.
Asbestos Disposal FAQ
Asbestos releases fibres when it is damaged or disturbed, which if inhaled can cause serious illnesses such as cancer and lung conditions. Asbestos still kills around 5000 workers each year, and it is definitely not just a problem of the past. Asbestos can be present today in any building built or refurbished before the year 2000.
Asbestos could be lurking in a wide range of materials used within the building trade. It could be in floor tiles, roofing felt, lagging, insulation boards or even just loose within ceiling or floor cavities.
You should not attempt to dispose of asbestos by yourself - if it is damaged or broken up, it can easily release the dangerous fibres into the air. Here at Trade Waste, we can dispose of asbestos in a controlled and safe way to minimise the risk of health issues later in life.
