Why is asbestos dangerous?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made up of soft, flexible fibres. It is heat resistant, a great insulator, and resistant to electricity and corrosion. Essentially, it’s a fantastic building material; however, asbestos is highly toxic and can cause serious disease and injury such as lung cancer and asbestosis.

Asbestos is a group of 6 naturally occurring materials that has been used in any number of building projects up until 2000. Sadly thousands of workers in the building industry die each year from asbestos related injuries and with so much of it still in existence in buildings around the UK, it’s important to remove it and dispose of it safely wherever possible.

Equipped with the very best personal protective equipment (PPE) our asbestos surveyors and operatives are able to assess the issue and remove it safely and appropriately to avoid someone becoming ill from this hazardous substance.

Industrial property asbestos

Being a very useful material, asbestos was used all over industrial buildings due to its heat resistant and insulating properties. The most common areas that our surveyors may need to check are:

  • Lagging
  • Sprayed coatings: on beams, columns, walls & ceilings
  • Water tanks – asbestos concrete
  • Toilet seats & cisterns
  • Insulation
  • AIB – fire doors & partition walls
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Fire blankets
  • Artex – & other textured decorative coatings

Used almost everywhere in some industrial buildings, this material can be extremely dangerous, which is why it’s so important to have our surveyors come and inspect the property for asbestos.
