Asbestos, the Common Building Material
Asbestos was a common building material from the 1930s right through to the late 1990s, when it was banned in the UK in most forms. Its properties – waterproof, with high heat resistance – made it ideal for construction, insulation and roofing, and the negative health effects weren’t fully recognised until the mid-1990s. And, as a result of this, many buildings in Sheffield constructed before or around this time may still contain asbestos, and people living or working in the property are at risk if the asbestos becomes damaged or degrades.
Asbestos Removal Sheffield & Yorkshire
This is of particular relevance for residents of Sheffield, as developments like the Park Hill complexes will almost certainly, in their original guise, contain asbestos which requires removal before any major work can be done. Of course some parts of the complex, alongside others in and around the city, are being redeveloped by investors who are aware of the risks and requirement to clear any asbestos found – but for those home and business owners who are still personally responsible for their property, JS Removals are here to give you the expert advice and responsive service you need to keep yourself and your family or employees safe.
Often, requests for asbestos clearance centre on the removal of garage guttering, roofs or often the entire structure, as well as disposing of water tanks, pipework lagging and drainpipes and soffits (cement based only) from mid-century properties. However, our experienced team have dealt with asbestos removal in all kinds of unusual and tricky situations, in Sheffield and elsewhere, and use approved methods for safely removing, storing and then disposing of any asbestos waste.
As further guarantee, within 14 days of payment for the work being received, you’ll get a certificate, an Asbestos Consignment Note, as confirmation that the work has been completed and your asbestos has been responsibly disposed of through official channels, giving you complete peace of mind.
But Why Remove the Asbestos at all?
While it is true that asbestos, if left undisturbed, does not pose a major risk to health, the likelihood of it remaining undamaged long-term is low. With the housing market in good shape following years of recession, many homeowners are choosing to refurbish their Sheffield properties in the hopes of making a profit when they come to sell – and in older buildings, refurbishment, renovation and repairs will often involve the kind of structural work that might bring you into contact with asbestos that could be damaged or deteriorating due to age or being disturbed.
Furthermore, the tiny fibres of asbestos that are released into the air upon being damaged – microscopic, mineral-based fibres – do not degrade over time, and once they are in your lungs they can do untold damage, with the effects and symptoms often only detected after decades. So even if you don’t knowingly engage in anything that may disturb asbestos in your house, previous work or even the natural degradation of the material can cause those fibres to be released.
It is important, then, to remove any trace of asbestos that you are made aware of, and to ensure that none remains to put your family or colleagues at risk either before, during or after any building work takes place. Rest assured that we use full PPE when completing any work, ensure that the area is suitably contained before undertaking any asbestos removal, and de-contaminate the area when we are finished. We also work with Sheffield-based hazardous waste disposal sites to ensure any asbestos that is cleared is then securely transported and managed in line with national guidance.
