Leicester Asbestos Removal Before

Did You Know this About Asbestos Removal in Leicester?

Asbestos was a key component in building materials throughout the first half of the 20th century, and only stopped being used in the 1990s as the health risks became more apparent. As a result, many buildings in and around Leicester still have asbestos that may need clearing, especially if they were built in the boom years of the 1950s and 1960s, capitalising on inner-city workers seeking quieter home life, as well as providing cheap and easily constructed homes for the thousands of migrants who flocked to the city from Asia and Africa.

In areas where new housing developments went up, such as at Braunstone in the south-west of the city, Beaumont Leys and Belgrave to the north, and Thurnby Lodge to the east, properties were often constructed using asbestos for insulation, floor and ceiling tiles, and as waterproof roofing materials for garages. Indeed, many of the queries we receive are to remove asbestos from garage roofs, ceilings or from the entire structure if appropriate, as well as from soil pipes, guttering and soffits on mid-century properties.

Problems When Disturbing Asbestos

If asbestos is in your house but is not currently at risk of being disturbed, it may be safe to leave it where it is, as removal can cause more issues. If, however, the asbestos is in poor condition or is at risk of being damaged or disturbed by any work you are undertaking, it should definitely be removed by professionals, to ensure no trace is left. Asbestos splits into tiny threads, which are sharp and which can do considerable damage to the lungs when breathed in, especially if there is long-term exposure.

As experts in asbestos removal around Leicester, JS Removals staff wear full PPE to stay protected, and take all necessary steps in the preparation towards, and undertaking of, clearance of asbestos along with any cleaning up required to ensure the area is safe to use afterwards.

We will ensure that it is suitably wrapped before it is transferred to a licensed site in or near Sheffield where it can be recycled responsibly into non-toxic materials.
