Before you purchase, or begin renovations on an old building, consider asbestos removal in Northwich. Several buildings in the Northwest were built when asbestos was an essential building material. Asbestos was popular for its lightweight yet dense structure. It was excellent for roofing, flooring and insulation because it has high thermal resistance. This means that asbestos significantly limits heat loss or gain in a room. Houses built with asbestos roofing or insulation are cool in the summer and easy to heat in the winter. Yet, studies in the mid-70s revealed that prolonged exposure to asbestos materials caused severe respiratory health challenges.
The studies found that asbestos contained tiny fibres that accumulate in your lungs on inhalation and can cause respiratory illnesses, some types of cancer and various complications. In Northwich, asbestos removal is a professional service performed by certified experts. Handling asbestos without proper training puts you, your family and the neighbours at risk. The agitated asbestos fibres are light enough to float in the air for a significant time before settling on the ground. We encourage anyone living in a home built between the 1950s and 1970s to have an asbestos survey. If you know which parts of your home have asbestos, you can avoid them during maintenance and plan for professional removal. Since your body cannot eliminate asbestos fibres once you inhale them, prevention is the only way to avoid the consequences of asbestos exposure.
