Asbestos Removal Bedfordshire
Up until the end of the 1980s, when asbestos was banned as a building material, it was regularly used in Bedfordshire homes for lagging pipes, roofing, or in ceiling tiles. The hazards of using asbestos are now well documented, and public health bodies recommend its immediate removal if discovered in domestic properties in Bedfordshire, or disturbed as part of a renovation, or refurbishment project.
The law banning all types of asbestos in buiding works was finally passed in 1999, five years ahead of the European deadline. It’s hard to assess the number of commercial properties containing asbestos in Bedfordshire, but given its popularity as a building material it’s likely to be high. Timely asbestos removal in Bedfordshire commercial properties is critical given the hazardous nature of the material; it is estimated that over 5000 deaths each year are caused by exposure to asbestos fibres.
If your domestic or commercial property was built mid-twentieth century or before, it’s highly likely that asbestos was used in its construction. Undetected asbestos is considered a latent health hazard; if asbestos is disturbed, fine asbestos fibres are released which cause serious and critical health conditions if inhaled. As a provider of asbestos removal for Bedfordshire, our HSE accredited third party consultants carry out surveys to identify the presence and location of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in your premises.
