Get Rid of Asbestos in Leatherhead
Before having renovations on any older property in Leatherhead, it’s essential to have it tested for ACMs (asbestos containing materials).
This dangerous mineral was used in many homes and businesses built before 2000. It’s found in everything from roofs and linos to old electrical equipment. Asbestos is still estimated to cause around 5,000 deaths a year, in particular those who worked with this material.
Tragically, around 20 tradesmen a week pass away due to past exposure to this mineral.
Why is asbestos so dangerous?
Once disturbed, ACMs release tiny fibres into the air, which, when breathed in, can cause deadly health conditions like cancer and Asbestosis, a serious scarring condition of the lung. This normally occurs after heavy exposure to asbestos over many years.
Known as a ‘silent killer’, asbestos is not to be taken lightly. Having asbestos testing and removals is essential for keeping everyone safe when having renovations on an older property. No matter the size of your project in Leather, our team is keen to support you.
