Comprehensive and competitive asbestos removal and safe disposal in Portsmouth. Asbestos has been used for over 2000 years and in the UK alone there are over 1 million buildings that contain asbestos. In the UK between the 1950s and the mid-1980s asbestos was used in a wide variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. During the above period especially during the 60s and 70s, any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated would more likely contain asbestos in the building. According to the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is because it causes four main diseases. These are mesothelioma (Fatal), Lung cancer (almost always fatal) asbestosis (not always fatal) and diffuse pleural thickening (Not Fatal).
