Q - What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that has been used for various purposes due to its unique properties. It was once highly regarded for its resistance to heat, fire, and corrosion, as well as its strength and durability. Asbestos has been used in a wide range of products and industries, including construction, automotive manufacturing, shipbuilding, and more. However, its use has significantly declined in recent decades due to serious health concerns associated with exposure to asbestos fibers.
There are several types of asbestos minerals, but the most commonly known and used ones include:
Chrysotile (white asbestos): This is the most common type of asbestos and was widely used in construction materials like insulation, roofing, and cement products.
Amosite (brown asbestos): Often used in products like thermal insulation and pipe insulation.
Crocidolite (blue asbestos): Known for its resistance to high temperatures, it was used in applications such as steam engines and spray-on coatings.
Tremolite, actinolite, and anthophyllite: These less common types of asbestos were often found as contaminants in other materials and were not used intentionally in products.
Asbestos is hazardous to human health when its fibers become airborne and are inhaled or ingested. The microscopic asbestos fibers can lodge in the lungs and other organs, leading to serious health problems over time. Exposure to asbestos is associated with several diseases, including:
Asbestosis: A chronic lung condition caused by the scarring of lung tissue, which can lead to breathing difficulties.
Lung cancer: Inhalation of asbestos fibers can increase the risk of developing lung cancer, especially in smokers.
Mesothelioma: A rare and aggressive cancer that primarily affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart. Exposure to asbestos is the primary cause of mesothelioma.
Due to the known health risks, many countries have imposed strict regulations and bans on the use of asbestos. Asbestos-containing materials in older buildings pose a significant risk during renovation or demolition, as disturbing these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air. Specialized procedures and protective equipment are required to safely handle and remove asbestos-containing materials.
In summary, asbestos is a mineral fiber with unique properties that made it attractive for various industrial applications, but its use has declined due to its association with serious health risks, including asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Efforts to minimize asbestos exposure and remove asbestos-containing materials from the environment are ongoing to protect public health.

What is Asbestos Removal?
Traditionally asbestos was used as a type of insulation in domestic, commercial, and industrial properties in the form of cement bonding. It’s now known to be extremely dangerous for health in all its varieties. The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act 1996 (AHERA) lists the following as types:
Chrysotile: found in roofs, ceilings, walls and floors, for car brake linings, gaskets and boiler seals, and insulation for pipes, ducts and appliances.
Amosite (brown asbestos): found in cement sheets, piping, insulating board, ceiling tiles, and thermal insulation.
Crocidolite (blue asbestos): used to insulate steam engines, pipe insulation, plastic, and cement products.
Anthophyllite asbestos: used in construction materials.
As you can see, this substance was used widely in the past before the risks were known. However, we now know that once these tiny dangerous fibres penetrate the lungs, they cause severe damage and severe illness that is often fatal. To avoid further health and safety risks this hazardous material must be carefully extracted or dismantled by an experienced removal team.
