My home underwent an asbestos survey by Asbestos Removal Glasgow Ltd, who also checked the entire property for asbestos. The report was quite effective and returned earlier than anticipated. The office personnel and asbestos assessor were highly competent, and they helped me avoid spending tens of thousands of pounds on a new home!

It’s important to have asbestos inspection and testing done before starting any renovation or demolition work.

Asbestos: What is it?

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that occurs naturally and is commonly used in building materials due to its low production cost and high durability. This made it a popular choice for building contractors and builders.

However, asbestos has been linked to several health risks, including cancer, as it can become toxic when broken down or disturbed. Proper and safe removal of asbestos is crucial, as failure to do so can pose a serious health risk to anyone nearby.

Different types of asbestos exist, each with their own health risks. If you’re unsure which type is present in your home or business, arrange for asbestos testing to identify it.

Removing asbestos is a specialized task that should only be done by qualified professionals. It’s crucial to follow the correct removal process as improper removal can cause further health risks.

Additionally, all asbestos-containing materials should be disposed of safely and in compliance with local regulations.

Asbestos Health Risks

Exposure to asbestos carries several health risks, with the most common being lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. The latter is a type of cancer that develops only in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart.

Other potential health issues include skin or eye irritation, breathing difficulties, and a weakened immune system. When asbestos is disturbed or broken, these health risks become more likely, as the material turns toxic and can be easily inhaled.

If asbestos is not removed properly, it can remain in the building materials and become an ongoing health hazard that is difficult to address. Asbestos removal services can safely remove asbestos and ensure that everyone nearby is protected from these health risks.

Asbestos Laws In Scotland

Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral known for its strength and heat resistance, was widely used in construction in the past. However, it is now recognized as a major health hazard, and asbestos laws in Scotland exist to protect individuals from exposure to this dangerous substance.

Failure to comply with these laws can result in penalties, including fines of up to £20,000 and imprisonment of up to 12 months. Serious breaches can lead to an unlimited fine and/or imprisonment of up to 2 years. Owners of derelict or vacant premises and warehouses must also have an asbestos survey.

Scotland has a significant place in asbestos history, having been an early adopter of the industry. Although asbestos was once considered a “wonder product,” stricter regulations were put in place to protect individuals as the dangers of asbestos became more apparent.

Although asbestos was officially banned in 1999, homes built between the 1950s and mid-1980s may still contain the material. Asbestos may be present in roof and floor tiles, wall panels, insulation panels in storage heaters, packing between floors and partition walls, cement fireplace surrounds, and central heating flues.

It is essential for individuals to be aware of the potential presence of asbestos in their homes and to take necessary precautions to protect themselves and others from exposure. If you suspect that your home may contain asbestos, seek professional advice and have an asbestos survey conducted. By complying with asbestos laws in Scotland, we can ensure the safety and health of all.
