Bonded Asbestos Removal & Disposal Services
Found in many homes, commercial and industrial buildings across the country, asbestos is a harmful material that can potentially cause a number of health hazards. Made from microscopic fibres that aggravate lung tissue when inhaled, asbestos is installed in buildings for insulation, flooring and roofing. In short, it is omnipresent inside many buildings built in the 20th century. Therefore, asbestos disposal is an important service for property owners for them to continue to operate a safe environment for the people who live or use their buildings.
If you’re looking for fast, efficient and cost effective asbestos removal, you have found the right place here at BKP. Being a vastly experienced waste and recycling service, we are able to offer a vast range of environmental treatment solutions. As such, we are able to provide a complete domestic, commercial and industrial door-to-door asbestos removal service at our fully licensed, on-site hazardous waste transfer station in Hampshire.
Why Effective Asbestos Disposal Is Needed
Whilst contained, asbestos will not pose an immediate risk. It’s only when the material is disturbed or broken that makes it dangerous. When asbestos is damaged, its fibres will be released into the air and once inhaled, they can potentially cause a number of serious and fatal diseases. These include pleural thickening (condensing of the lung lining that makes it difficult to breathe), as well as mesothelioma, asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer.
The effects of asbestos exposure will not be immediately apparent as they often take a long time to develop. Once diagnosed though, the diseases will often be caught too late to treat. This is why it’s vital that any asbestos must be removed as soon as possible.
According to information from the Government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE):
- Asbestos is responsible for 5000 deaths of workers every year. This is more than the number of people involved in road traffic collisions.
- Around 20 tradesmen die every week due to past exposure to asbestos.
- Any building that was built or refurbished before the year 2000 may contain asbestos. This makes its safe management, removal and disposal an ongoing problem for today.
For these reasons, the removal of asbestos is extremely hazardous. Although it is perfectly legal for property owners to remove the material themselves, strict guidelines by the HSE govern its removal and disposal. A professional asbestos disposal company can save you the time and worry in performing the job yourself. As they’ll be experienced, skilled and fully aware of the legislation, they will be able to remove asbestos quickly and easily, freeing you up to concentrate on other important matters.
