Asbestos awareness in Burnley is serious business. From 1900 to mid-1970’s it was common to use asbestos as insulation around plumbing and heating pipes. Many building materials contained asbestos as well. You could find it in home siding, roofing shingles, attic and wall insulation and even paint. Asbestos is such an excellent fire retardant; people used it in everything they could before they knew the dangers. If your home or workplace dates between 1950 and 1980, it is likely that asbestos is present.  Now we know the dangers of breathing in those microscopic fibres. Danger such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis; none of which is curable. Asbestos Associated helps the environment by providing you with information. Not all asbestos needs removal.
