A Professional and Reliable Asbestos Removal Company for Welwyn Garden City
The history of asbestos runs from 2,500BC when the bodies of embalmed Pharaohs were wrapped in asbestos cloth, through its emergence as a component of bank notes in Italy in the 1850s, to the discovery of its malign effects on the lungs when inhaled in the 1920s, and its eventual banning in the UK in 1999.
We still live with the legacy of this deadly material in our pipes, ceiling coatings, cold water storage tanks, floor tiles, outbuildings and garage roofs. Asbestos is not dangerous so long as it remains inert. Should the microscopic fibres be disturbed, however, they become airborne and can cause deadly lung diseases if inhaled.
