What is Asbestos? Why is it so dangerous?
Asbestos waste is extremely hazardous and can occur in a number of different forms, and is formed of minerals made up of millions of microscopic fibres. In the past, its use was significant in many buildings. It was regularly used in Artex ceilings, flooring, roofing & types of insulation and plumbing materials. This was particularly the case during the building boom between the1950’s to the late 1980’s. Asbestos is now a banned material and cannot be used. It is often found in buildings & outbuildings formed prior to the year 2000.
If the Asbestos-containing materials remain intact, & lay undisturbed, they pose minimal risk. The problem starts when you want to undertake any work(s) & disturb it. If you uncover Asbestos at this point, it is certainly the time you will want to contact The Waste group disposal experts swiftly.
Asbestos is dangerous because:
Materials containing Asbestos become a health hazard once damaged or disturbed & their microscopic fibres are released into the air. These fibres can be inhaled, they are not only damaging to your health and your pets, but also the whole environment in general. When these fibres are inhaled, they can lead to extremely serious diseases. These diseases do not have immediate effects, but can cause a multitude of fatal or serious diseases. It is incredibly important you fully protect yourself, and do not underestimate the dangers.
