The very mention of the word asbestos conjures up a range of emotions thanks to its reputation as a potential killer.
The fact is, however, asbestos is only a danger if it is not treated properly. Unfortunately, given its poor image, people can assume the worst not knowing what positive treatment options are available.
Until the late 1970’s asbestos was widely used in all kinds of buildings… domestic, commercial and industrial… for a broad range of applications but, since 1980, its use has been carefully controlled. Today, the issue is more a matter of knowing where it has been used, its condition and what threat it poses… if any. If it does pose a risk, the next question is… what is the best method of treatment?
The solution is never always as straight forward as we would like thanks to the fact that there are three types of asbestos… each posing a different level of threat.
Crocidolite, known as blue asbestos, is the most dangerous. Amosite, known as brown asbestos, is next dangerous. Chrysotile, known as white asbestos, is the lesser of the three ‘evils’. However, when looking at an asbestos product you simply cannot tell which type of asbestos it contains. It is here that help is at hand in the form of a highly experienced team of professionals who offer; Asbestos Surveys, Consultancy, Remediation, Removal and Re-instatement.
