Asbestos garages are a concern for people living in houses that were built between 1930-1999. During this period, asbestos was extensively used as a roofing material for extensions and garages, because it was easier and quicker to install. Apart from this, being a fire-resistant material, it was presumed to be the ideal choice for garage roofs.
As long as the material stays in good condition, asbestos isn’t really a very big hazard. However, in Wirral, asbestos garage removal becomes urgently necessary when the material begins to show signs of deterioration. The fine asbestos fibres work loose and enter our lungs, causing a variety of conditions and illnesses, ranging from allergies and respiratory problems to mesothelioma and other types of cancers. Unfortunately, these illnesses may take years to develop and manifest, by which time it may be too late to save the person’s life. Older houses may have asbestos and asbestos containing materials in roofs, walls, insulation-boards, cavity and attic insulation, floor and ceiling tiles, fire-resistant paints, cisterns and tanks, pipes, guttering, flues etc. Hence it’s important to conduct a thorough and comprehensive asbestos survey if you live in an older building. The survey allows you to locate and identify asbestos and asbestos containing materials and also document their condition.
Asbestos garage removal in Wirral should be undertaken only by trained, qualified and experienced professionals. Contact Asbestos Associated if you require help with an asbestos garage removal. The process begins once the survey has been completed and the risks have been located and identified. The first stage is called “encapsulation” where the roof is made safe for removal. This is done by coating it with a special adhesive paint. It is then removed only by a certified professional who must dispose of it in compliance with local and national regulations.
