What is Asbestos and why do remove it?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibre that was widely used in construction and other industries during the 90s and 80s. However, this all stopped when asbestos was banned on August 24th, 1999. Asbestos was used because it was resistant to heat, fire and mechanically and chemically strong.
The types of asbestos come under two families the serpentine minerals or amphibole family. However, Chrysolite (white asbestos) was used frequently in construction and other industries but was the most dangerous towards humans.
Three main types of asbestos can be found in the UK.
- Blue (crocidolite
- White (chrysotile)
- Brown (amosite)
Asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths each year, from exposure years ago. Asbestos is known to cause several health issues such as lung disease, lung cancer, Mesothelioma and other illnesses when exposed to high amounts of asbestos repeatedly.
