Asbestos was widely used as a heat-resistant building material and an electrical insulator from the 1950’s onwards however its dangers were not fully appreciated until the mid-1970s, when asbestos became recognised as a medical condition. Asbestos is made up from dust particles which are needle like crystals which work their way across the lung tissue and may pierce the lung and scrape against the chest wall causing inflammation.
As we mentioned in a previous post asbestos can result from minor exposure for example if you would have stripped a pipe of its lagging many years ago you probably would have been exposed to asbestos. However excess exposure to asbestos dust can increase the chances of lung cancer. Because of the increasing awareness of the dangers of asbestos from the 1980’s onwards there was severe curbing of its use in construction and refurbishment and recent years there has been strict controls on its removal and disposal. There is currently thought to be over a million commercial buildings in the UK that contain asbestos materials.
Asbestos removal is necessarily one of the most highly legislated services in the UK and is an extremely specialised occupation. Asbestos removal should be carried out only by companies which are licensed and fully qualified to do so. There are penalties if you, as building owner or landlord, fail to appoint an organisation with the compulsory credentials.
The first step is to request a full survey from a qualified specialist such as RJ Environmental Services. We can advise you on all aspects of the process to find out the best course of action for your property. If you require more information on our services then call us today on: 01443 477 070 or contact us here.
We all know asbestos isn’t good for our health but do we really know and understand the health risks involved? Exposure to asbestos fibres can increase the risk of serious diseases which are responsible for around 4500 deaths a year.
The Four Main Diseases Attributed to Asbestos Are:
Mesothelioma is a cancer which affects the lining of your lungs and the lining of your lower digestive tract. This type of cancer is nearly always related to asbestos exposure and is very hard to notice this kind of disease so early diagnosis is rare.
Asbestos related lung cancer
There are not many statistics about asbestos related lung cancer as it’s almost impossible to distinguish the difference between this and lung cancer caused by smoking and other causes. It works and looks exactly the same, however, it’s estimated that for every mesothelioma death there is a diagnosis of asbestos related lung cancer.
Is a serious scarring condition of the lungs that normally occurs after great periods of exposure to asbestos over a prolonged period of time. Asbestosis causes progressive shortness of breath and in some cases can be fatal.
This normally happens after many years of regular asbestos exposure. Pleural thickening causes the lining of the lung to thicken and swell; this can cause shortness of breath and make the chest area very uncomfortable.
Remember up until about 40 years ago schools, houses and buildings were constructed using asbestos so if you are worried about asbestos in your building, then you need our experts at RJ Environmental who can assess and remove it safely. For more information about our asbestos and building services in Newport give us a call on: or contact us here.
Up until 1972 the majority of the buildings in this country were constructed using asbestos; these buildings included schools and homes. For a long time no one had any idea that breathing in asbestos was deadly and could result in lung restrictive illnesses and death. We now understand that asbestos only becomes a threat to humans when it’s disturbed. Asbestos has to be removed incredibly carefully and here at RJ Environmental we specialise in safe and secure asbestos removal in Cardiff.
Where Can You Find Asbestos?
Asbestos can be found in various places around the home and in large buildings like hospitals and schools. It can be found in:
- Asbestos cement products like roofs, wall cladding, downpipes and gutters
- Floor tiles hidden under carpets, textiles in your fuse boxes and composites in toilet cisterns
- AIB (Asbestos Insulation Board) used for things like fireproofing, partition walls, ceiling tiles
- Lagging and insulation
It’s important to remember that asbestos is only dangerous when it is damaged or disturbed so if you are planning on carrying out work on a building and you suspect that asbestos may be present then it’s always best to call in the professionals who can assess it and remove it safely. Here at RJ Environmentals we have a full Health & Safety Executive approval as a Licensed Asbestos Removal Contractor.
Our asbestos services include the removal of asbestos, working on surfaces that may contain asbestos and encasement and signage of asbestos material. We also have a 24 hour emergency call out service so we are always on hand to help you out and ensure a safe working environment for all our customers.
So if you suspect asbestos in your building get in touch with us today by calling 01443 477 070 or fill in an online contact form here.
Even as we are deep into 2012 and years and years away from the time when asbestos was regularly used as a building material (between the 1950’s through to the mid-1980’s) there are still many materials which have some sort of asbestos component inside of them. We all know the health dangers attached to asbestos, so if you ever believe there is asbestos inside your home or workplace, it is essential that immediate action be taken – which means contacting the team at RJ Environmental Services Ltd. your experts in asbestos in Newport, and having it comprehensively removed.
But what should you do when you are first dealing with asbestos before contacting a team that thoroughly understands the material? Make sure to read on to find out all that you need to know!
Never Aggravate Asbestos
Like a cartoon cat trying not to awaken the big, angry sleeping dog, asbestos does not usually pose a risk until it is damaged or disturbed, so you always need to remember never to aggravate it when coming into contact with it. This is because the asbestos will release tiny fibres into the air which can be extremely harmful to your health when breathed in – with large amounts of the fibres causing problems as serious as lung disease and cancer.
So the answer isn’t so much to ‘deal’ with asbestos, but instead to leave it as it is and contact us as soon as you can.
Then let us Deal with it
Then after getting in touch, our team of asbestos experts will deal with the asbestos for you, carrying out a structured process which first identifies the type of asbestos that is actually inside of your property, then safely removes it and therefore takes away any possible risk – and finally can then remedy any structural damage that may have been caused due to removing this building material. If you are worried that there is asbestos inside your home or workplace, get in touch right away.

Asbestos was a widely used material in the building industry from the 1950s right through to the late 1980s and it wasn’t until later in that time period that the dangers became apparent. Unfortunately, around 3500 people die each year from an asbestos related disease, and this is because there are many older buildings in which it can still be found. As it is such a harmful material, it has to be handled with care and can only be removed by fully trained asbestos contractors Newport, such as the team here at RJ Environmental Services.
