Asbestos – is it still dangerous?
Removing asbestos has often been neglected by homeowners based in the UK. Regrettably, this material is still perceived as one that definitely belongs to the past, while in fact there are thousands of properties all over the country where this substance is hidden and may pose a threat as years go by. Luckily, there are now companies ready to handle all the challenges connected with that noxious material and can do that without jeopardizing the health and safety of the inhabitants. Curious to know if your dwelling in Bedford is at risk? Read on and learn more.
The risk factors
There are a couple of main risk factors that need to be taken into account when it comes to asbestos presence. Most of all, the age of the building is of tremendous importance. If your house or flat was erected from 1920s to 1990s and did not have any tests conducted on it, chances are that this carcinogenic substance still resides in places such as walls, insulation, flooring or roofing. Some of the locations are really difficult to access and thus can be hardly protected against, especially if one does not have special equipment and, more importantly, expertise in asbestos removal. That is why it is advisable to have proper tests run on your property so that this possibility can be unequivocally ruled out. If it turns out, however, that there are traces of this substance that can pose a risk in the future, necessary measures will need to be taken. One of them is either the complete removal or an encapsulation, the latter being a process of protecting asbestos from further crumpling and dilapidation. It needs to be borne in mind that this is exactly the condition in which the risk is the greatest.
