Why Is Asbestos Abatement Required?
Textured Coatings for Ceilings and Walls
Asbestos may have been present in your premises for decades and as long as it stays undisturbed and in good condition, it poses little threat. However, there is always the risk that anyone doing work on the building could damage the asbestos and release dangerous fibres.
The inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer. In the UK alone, asbestos-related diseases are estimated to kill up to 4,000 people a year. It can take anywhere from 15 to 60 years after first exposure before these serious diseases become apparent.
In most asbestos abatement cases, where any asbestos-containing material (ACM) is removed, an appropriate substitute material must be reinstalled. Fibreglass pipe covering is a widely used product and the costs associated with supplying and installing new material are relatively low.
