FACTS ABOUT ASBESTOS
It might be hard to believe, but despite the fact asbestos has been banned in the UK since 1999, it continues to reside in domestic and commercial buildings across the country. We always advise that you treat suspect materials as asbestos until proven otherwise.
Individual asbestos fibres are invisible to the human eye. These fibres can be 700 times smaller than a human hair and can only be identified using a microscope. These microscopic fibres are potentially deadly when inhaled, causing diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. The signs and symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can take anywhere between 10 to 40 years to develop.

DIFFERENT types of asbestos
There are six naturally occurring fibrous minerals known as “asbestos”. However, the three most common types of asbestos are chrysotile (white asbestos), amosite (brown asbestos), and crocidolite (blue asbestos), which we encounter on a daily basis.
Different asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) have different concentrations of asbestos fibres, but they are all potentially hazardous. We can help you reduce or eliminate the risks associated with asbestos by having any suspect materials tested for its presence.
Our asbestos testing in Gravesend will identify the exact type of any asbestos present on-site. This is essential because there are different asbestos removal procedures for different types of ACMs.
