Asbestos has a long and complicated history. Once revered for many decades in the building and construction industry, thanks to its heat-resistant qualities, asbestos and asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are now notorious for being a significant health risk.
Protecting your home or business property – and everyone inside – from the hazards of asbestos fibres is vital. With experience in asbestos removal spanning nearly 30 years, Westfield Group UK can provide professional removal in West Sussex for all domestic and commercial properties.
We know the challenges ACMs can bring, so our asbestos services ensure responsible and safe removal and disposal of hazardous waste to protect your health and the environment in full compliance with legal and industry regulations.
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a natural, fibrous mineral in various building materials. Typically, these can include insulation, ceiling tiles, roofing sheets, soffit boards, and even floor tiles, which can contain asbestos cement products. Once extensively used when building residential and business properties, asbestos was renowned for its durability and versatility.
What wasn't known until much later was that if these ACMs are disturbed or broken during any renovation or demolition project, tiny airborne fibrils are released, bringing health risks to the lungs when breathed in, including mesothelioma, pleural thickening, lung cancer and asbestos-related diseases, such as asbestosis.
The good news is that when these dangers became more understood, all ACMs were banned in the UK’s construction industry in 1999. The bad news is that ACMs are still inside many domestic or commercial properties built or refurbished before the year 2000.
