What is Asbestos?
They can float in the air and inhaled into the lungs without you noticing. Large-scale asbestos mining began in the 19th Century thanks to the mineral’s properties that made it desirable for building materials and very widely used.
It is when asbestos is disturbed, releasing the fibres into the air that the risks are greater. While many of the fibres are removed with your body’s natural defences (coughing), some remain there. Depending on the amount you retain, it can have a host of health problems from Asbestosis (a chronic lung disease) to Mesothelioma (a cancer of the outer lung lining).
The roof is one of the most common places for asbestos to exist. It has the ability to stay hidden there for years.
