Asbestos Removal London: Trust a Professional to Keep Your Home Healthy

Back to Home
For centuries, asbestos was used in and around homes because of its resistance to fire and electrical damage. Today, however, homeowners are far more concerned with asbestos removal. London homes built before the 1970s may well have asbestos incorporated in anything from ceiling insulation to vinyl flooring tiles. If it's covered, intact and undamaged, asbestos poses little threat, but if there is any chance that its fibres can become airborne and inhaled, speed of removal and exercising caution become top priorities.
Too Good to Be True
The earliest use of asbestos in homes dates back thousands of years, though it wasn't mined on an industrial level until the late 19th century. After that, it was used to insulate floors and ceilings, to protect against electrical fires, and was woven into mats and fabrics, as well as having a number of other functions. It was thought to be something of a miracle material, but as the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Because of its fibrous, crystalline structure, asbestos particles can easily become airborne. Once that happens, prolonged inhalation can lead to a wide variety of very serious illnesses, including malignant lung cancer and asbestosis. In many homes, undamaged pieces of asbestos sit harmlessly in attics or basements. As long as they don't start crumbling and falling apart, they require very little attention other than just keeping an eye to make sure it's still intact.  The problems start when something goes wrong or time simply takes its toll.
Call in the Professionals
If you do have asbestos somewhere in your home that has been damaged, don't wait to call in the professionals and definitely don't try to remove it yourself. It poses a serious health risk to you and your family and needs to be left to professionals with the experience and equipment to clean your home quickly and effectively.
When Canada's Restoration Services attends a site requiring asbestos removal, they bring with them a full containment set-up complete with multi-chamber decontamination facilities to ensure that absolutely everything that poses a health risk is removed. For example, dust and particles are collected and filtered out of the air, then bagged, sprayed with a binding agent, bagged again and properly disposed of. The workers on the job also put their protective suits through a similar procedure to ensure everyone's absolute safety.
Once all of the asbestos has been removed, you can have peace of mind knowing that the air quality in your home has been fully restored. When it comes to asbestos removal, London homeowners expect and demand nothing less than professional, effective and thorough service to ensure their homes are safe places to live and play.
