Surrey Asbestos Removal – Don’t do it yourself!

By November 27, 2020 January 15th, 2021 One Comment

Sometimes in life we like to cut corners, make things a little easier on ourselves.  We all do it, it’s no secret.  DIY home renovations is
a great example.  For instance, we all know someone who’s tiled their bathroom with no experience, watching a YouTube video.  Excellent idea to save money and time.   

However, when it comes to asbestos in the home, removing this yourself is extremely dangerous and not worth the time, money or inconvenience it can cause.

Completely removing materials that contain asbestos is a last resort as there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is not
always an immediate hazard. If asbestos can be maintained, it can be left alone.

It is only when asbestos-containing materials (ACM) are disturbed or damaged that the risk is increased. When the materials are damaged, the fibres can separate and may become airborne.  If any fibres are inhaled, it has the potential to cause asbestosis, mesothelioma or
cancer. 

If you are concerned about asbestos in your home, we recommended that you contact Surrey Asbestos Surveys.  We can provide you with qualified, regulated, and approved contractors who can solve your asbestos removal problem quickly, and for a reasonable cost.

Removing asbestos from your premises can be worrying but we deal with asbestos responsibly as lives depend on it.  We have effective procedures in place to remove hazardous waste, disposing at approved landfills that have the capacity to deal with it so that no-one or nothing is contaminated.
