What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a natural mineral used extensively in building and construction due to its versatility. It was once a preferred material thanks to its heat-resistant and insulating properties. However, even many years later, the harmful fibres in asbestos can become airborne, posing severe health risks. Inhalation of these fibres is linked to severe respiratory conditions, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were regularly used in building work completed over many decades before their hazardous qualities were fully known or understood. ACMs became banned in building and construction in 1999, but many older buildings still contain original asbestos. Despite its age, asbestos is still hazardous when disturbed or broken during building or renovation work.
Signs of asbestos contamination
Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were commonly used in homes and buildings constructed in Portsmouth and around the country before the 2000s. But, identifying these materials can be challenging, as asbestos is often hidden in various building components such as insulation, flooring, and roofing.
If your residential or commercial property dates back to 2000 or earlier and you’re thinking about demolition or any kind of renovation, the most common ACMs to be wary of include:
Insulation: Insulation materials may contain asbestos for its fire-resistant properties
Flooring: Vinyl tiles, adhesives, and even some types of linoleum may contain asbestos
Roofing: Asbestos-cement roofing materials were common in older buildings
