Asbestos is extremely hazardous, and as such you must have an operator’s licence and the right experience to remove this dangerous material. At Projunk, we have the expertise, the know-how, and the correct equipment to safely remove asbestos from both commercial and domestic properties.
For years, asbestos was regarded as a very effective building material. It is extremely fire-resistant, and does not rot. This is why asbestos was used as a building material, and was only banned in the 1970s when the danger of asbestosis became apparent. However, as most asbestos has been in situ for longer than 50 years in many older properties, it is still common to find it lagging pipes, lining walls and even as a ceiling lining.
Breathing in asbestos is exceptionally dangerous, as the fine fibres can embed themselves deep inside the lungs, causing life-threatening diseases in later years.
Working to strict regulations
It is crucial to call in experts to remove asbestos if you find it in your home, as not only does it have to be extracted properly, but there are also very strict regulations surrounding the disposal of asbestos. Do not try to remove or dispose of asbestos yourself! Not only is it extremely dangerous, but it is also illegal.
