Asbestos Tank Removal from JS
Finding out that you have an Asbestos water tank that needs removing can be a daunting thought, after all we are now very much aware of the dangers of handling anything containing Asbestos. But there is no need to worry, at JS Removals we have all the necessary PPE and materials for the safe removal, transportation and disposal of Asbestos water tanks, down pipes and guttering.
Asbestos was the most favoured leading material for the manufacture of hot and cold water tanks not only for use in residential properties around the UK but also heavily used in a wide range of commercial buildings too.
This popularity ceased in 1999 due to the serious health issues surrounding the use of asbestos but since pre-war days this country has enthusiastically been open-armed towards the deployment and installation of asbestos in various forms, wherever a need was found for it, the UK building industry used it.
The Use of Asbestos in Water Tanks
Asbestos has many useful properties, not least of which is it’s water resistance, so it is no wonder that, back in the day, it was commonly used for the construction of water tanks.
Worrying though this may sound, it is worth noting that the asbestos content of most water tanks was typically only around 7-10% and non-friable, the term ‘non-friable is used to describe asbestos fibres that are not likely to be broken down easily and therefore the dangerous fibres not likely to be released in general circumstances.
