The name asbestos actually refers to several types of this mineral. Brown and white asbestos (Chrysotile and Amosite) were the two most commonly used types, although there are six different varieties altogether. Although some types are more dangerous than others, all types are bad for your health.
Asbestos is made up of long, thin fibres which, when pulled apart, create a fluffy consistency. Because of its unique properties, it was used as an insulation material for everything from buildings, boilers and pipes to car brakes and floor tiles.
When damaged or disturbed, asbestos can release smaller fibres that can be breathed in or swallowed. Even in its natural environment, asbestos can still be dangerous to humans. That’s why it’s crucial that it’s removed from any building or site in Fetcham.
Soaring in popularity during the industrial age, it wasn’t until the 1970s until it was recognised how harmful asbestos was. Unfortunately, its use wasn’t fully banned in the UK until 1999. It was often used for insulating boards to protect buildings and ships against fire, and in cement for roofing sheets and pipes.
