Asbestos removal

Asbestos was once commonly used in construction, primarily as an insulator to retain heat and keep the cold out. It also has great fire resistance and protects against corrosion.

This means that there are plenty of buildings out there with asbestos still in the walls and ceilings, so there’s the possibility of serious illness for homeowners and workers. In fact, all properties built between the ‘50s and 2000 are likely to contain asbestos in some form.

Government regulations

In line with 2006 Control of Asbestos Regulations, all materials containing asbestos must be removed and disposed of. The best way of ensuring you fall in line with these regulations is by using a contractor with Health & Safety Executive licensing.

Managing hazardous material such as asbestos is a huge responsibility and ignoring any problem that arises can lead to severe legal implications. Every homeowner and employer should be aware of their obligation to dealing with asbestos use in the property.

Health hazards

The dangers of asbestos are evident in the four very serious diseases explained below. This is why the removal of asbestos products is extremely important. Symptoms develop over years and you won’t be affected immediately. However, once you’ve been diagnosed it’ll often be too late.

Make sure to take action now and have asbestos materials removed from your property.

  • Mesothelioma

This form of cancer affects the lining of the lungs and is exclusively related to prolonged asbestos exposure. Once you have been diagnosed it will be too late and the disease is almost always fatal.

  • Asbestos-related lung cancer

Lung cancer caused from asbestos exposure has the same effects as cancer from smoking. Again, if it’s not caught early it’s likely to be fatal for the patient.

  • Asbestosis

This condition causes serious scarring of the lungs, normally resulting from prolonged asbestos exposure over several years. Once the condition sets in the patient will have shortness of breath and in severe cases asbestosis is fatal.

  • Pleural thickening

Heavy asbestos exposure can lead to pleural thickening. This can cause the lining of your lungs to swell and if symptoms worsen the lung will be squeezed, causing shortness of breath and chest discomfort.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

The below data indicates the energy performance of homes in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the very least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating factors heavily if you want to sell your house, as prospective buyers will see what amount they're most likely to be spending on their home heating bills. House improvements such as insulation assist to significantly improve a home's EPC rating.
