THE HEALTH DANGERS OF ASBESTOS

Asbestos is not harmful when left undisturbed. It's only when you damage it in some way that it can release its harmful particles or fibres into the air. Asbestosis is the disease caused by asbestos fibres entering the lungs and being trapped. These fibres or particles are also a contributing factor to the onset of lung cancer and mesothelioma.

There is no known cure for asbestosis and the scarring to the lungs caused by the asbestos fibres cannot be reversed.

The symptoms of asbestosis can include:

  • Persistent Cough
  • Pain in Your Shoulder or Chest
  • Wheezing
  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Acute Shortness of Breath

If you experience one of these symptoms and you have been exposed to asbestos over a long period of time, you should make an appointment to see your GP and seek their advice.

WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN DEALING WITH ASBESTOS

Asbestos was banned from use in Great Britain in 1999, although it had not been widely used after 1985. If your property was built in this period of time you must be mindful of the possibility of finding asbestos during restoration works. It was used in items such as pipe lagging, ceiling tiles and boiler insulation and was also applied in the form of a spray as an excellent fire-proofing and insulation material.

Finding asbestos in your Ware property doesn't constitute an immediate hazard. Don't forget that asbestos is usually only a danger to health if damaged or interfered with. If you are able to use efficient management measures to ensure the asbestos is not disturbed or damaged in any way, it might be better to leave it in place. If you're in any doubt or need to find out safe ways to deal with asbestos in your property it is advisable to speak to an asbestos removal contractor in Ware for help and advice.

Not all asbestos materials are considered high risk and require qualified asbestos removal specialists to deal with them. Due to how different asbestos products are produced and their likelihood of releasing fibres into the environment, items such as loose fill insulations, asbestos insulation boards and pipe lagging are classed as a higher risk to health than asbestos cement sheets and roofing panels. Only an accredited asbestos removal company in Ware will be able to detect, remove and dispose of any items made from asbestos, in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

Asbestos Removal Quotes in Ware Hertfordshire (SG11)

Subject to the kind and use of the premises, and if the asbestos removal is in a form that calls for an authorised contractor, then the local authority or the Health & Safety Executive should be notified. For all asbestos work there must be compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to limit and prevent any exposure to asbestos dust and fibres.

If you do not hold a recognised HSE asbestos license you may very well be prosecuted if you carry out any asbestos removal which calls for a licensed contractor to complete the process.

THE DISPOSAL OF ASBESTOS

Whenever the asbestos materials have been removed from your Ware property they have to be viewed as hazardous waste. It's essential that any hazardous asbestos waste is disposed of in the appropriate manner, following the laid out instructions from the local authority. A certified asbestos removal firm will be aware of the important laws and guidelines from the local authority and the HSE for the disposal of hazardous asbestos waste.

If the asbestos material has been damaged, or if it is loose fibre asbestos, it must be transferred and disposed of as outlined by the Carriage of Dangerous Goods Act 2009 (CDG 2009). The CDG 2009 act states that a separate waste carrier's license is essential and that the waste must be transferred to a registered hazardous waste disposal facility. For peace of mind the hiring of a registered Ware asbestos removal service will give them the responsibility of following all guidelines and rules, including the safe-keeping of all disposal records for 3 years, at the least just in case it is required for reference down the road.

THE WORK STAGES

You must authenticate any presumed instances of asbestos in your Ware property or home before you start any removal work. Inspections and surveys by registered and licensed asbestos removal contractors or asbestos surveyors are the only way to correctly affirm the asbestos risk in your property or home. If you choose not to undertake a professional examination on an older building, you have to presume there is asbestos present somewhere and implement all of the necessary precautions.

A professional asbestos surveyor should be independent of your asbestos removal company, and will conduct all testing, sampling and inspections.

Asbestos Disposal Ware Hertfordshire

If the survey uncovers asbestos materials that require a licensed contractor for removal and disposal, the Health and Safety Executive must be informed at least fourteen days prior to the starting of work. An experienced asbestos removal contractor will provide all the necessary documents that should include: 1. A definitive solution for sampling and also clearing up after the work is completed. 2. All relating training certificates for employees in addition to all company certifications covering risk assessments, work licenses, hazardous waste disposal and any other paperwork required by law. 3. A prepared work declaration of the regulations, guidelines and rules for the assignment. 4. A Certificate of Reoccupation from the relevant authorities once the 4 stages of clearances has been completed.

Sufficient PPE (personal protective equipment) will be provided for all individuals working on the site, by the asbestos removal firm, and they'll also ensure the proper method of disposal of any waste asbestos materials.

Artex Removal Ware

Way back in the nineteen seventies and eighties it was pretty common for both tradesmen and DIY fanatics in Ware, to apply Artex coatings to their ceilings and walls. Any inconsistencies, cracks and flaws in these surfaces were quickly concealed by the textured, flexible finish of this handy product. Artex was typically used to replace polystyrene ceiling tiles, which had created a fire hazard in many Ware properties.

Artex Removal Ware Hertfordshire

The paradox is that these folks were merely replacing one dangerous material for another, given that Artex contained asbestos. Needless to say, when this was happening, the real dangers of asbestos weren't fully appreciated and it wasn't until later that the health risks were understood by the public at large. There are still many houses in Ware which have areas of Artex, and providing that this material is not disturbed in any way, it is mostly safe.

If you have a home or business premises in Ware that's got Artex on the ceilings or walls you must not try to remove it by yourself, although textured coating removal is classed as a non-licenced undertaking. To safely remove your Artex, you should call in a local asbestos removal service, who'll give you prices for both sampling and properly removing the offending coatings.

Asbestos Encapsulation Ware

When asbestos is identified inside a building in Ware, it may not necessarily be essential to remove and dispose of it, because there's another option that is referred to as asbestos encapsulation. With asbestos encapsulation, the asbestos containing materials (ACM's) are swathed in a protective membrane which could consist of a cloth wrap, a painted or sprayed coating or a rigid board, to both stop the potentially dangerous asbestos fibres from being released into the atmosphere and guard the ACM from the chances of being damaged. In order to determine whether to remove the ACM or implement encapsulation, a risk assessment will be necessary.

Types of Asbestos

Types of Asbestos Mineral

Occurring naturally on all of the world's continents, asbestos is a fibrous material that was used in the construction and manufacturing industries from the end of the nineteenth century until it was banned altogether in the British Isles in the late 1990s. There are six different forms of asbestos, and all are minerals part of the amphibole and serpentine groups, namely - crocidolite, amosite, chrysotile, anthophyllite, actinolite and tremolite.

The 3 most widely found of these minerals were; chrysotile, crocidolite and amosite, so it is these primary types that we're going to be covering in this short article.

Amosite (Brown Asbestos) - Part of the Amphibole family of silicate minerals, Amosite (grunerite or brown asbestos), was primarily mined in South Africa and was used in the manufacture of pipe insulation, vinyl tiles, cement sheets, roofing materials, insulating board and fire protection.

Crocidolite (Blue Asbestos) - Considered to be the most dangerous of all the asbestos minerals is crocidolite (also called blue asbestos). It was frequently used for the insulation of steam engines, and also for plastics, cement products, spray-on coatings and pipe lagging.

Chrysotile (White Asbestos) - The most widely used form of asbestos was chrysotile asbestos, also known as white asbestos. This was frequently used in the roofs, walls, insulation, ceilings and floors of Ware homes. It was often also used in the production of gaskets, pipe & duct insulation, brake linings and boiler seals.

Asbestos Surveys Ware

Asbestos Surveys Ware (01920)

Some sort of asbestos is often found in buildings constructed in Ware in the period 1850 to 1999. Popular because of its chemical and heat resistant properties, it was for many years a favoured building material. Identified in the 70s and 80s as the main cause of some serious health problems, such as throat cancer, lung cancer, pleural thickening, asbestosis, mesothelioma and laryngeal cancer, it was removed from many buildings.

Both brown and blue asbestos was banned in Britain in 1985, and all types of asbestos were banned in 1999. Not surprisingly asbestos remains in many structures that were built before 1999, and on that basis asbestos surveys are necessary in many situations, even now.

There are two main kinds of asbestos survey that can be carried out on buildings in Ware.

  • Asbestos Management Surveys (formerly Type 2)
  • Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys (formerly Type 3)

Asbestos Management Surveys Ware: An Asbestos Management Survey is conducted on buildings that are occupied in Ware, to verify the asbestos containing materials that are present, and to make sure they aren't disturbed during routine maintenance or normal everyday activities. No harm should come to occupants where asbestos containing materials remain in good shape and undisturbed. But, risks may exist if they are damaged, disturbed or in poor condition, and minute asbestos fibres are released into the environment.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys Ware: The need for an Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey arises (as the name implies) when a building or premises in Ware is being demolished or renovated. ARD surveys can result in a significant amount of structural damage, therefore they're normally carried out on buildings when they are empty. Where upgrading, demolition or refurbishment is planned an ARD survey must be carried out before any work starts. The presence of any asbestos containing materials will be established during this survey, and ways to safely remove or manage such materials can be put in place. Irrespective of the extent of the restorations, any management agents, professionals and occupants involved have the responsibility of commissioning these ARD surveys, in keeping with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015.
