Asbestos Related Lung Cancer Deaths each year.

Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum.
During the 1930s, asbestos was a widespread building material that was used up until 1999. Unfortunately, it was only then discovered to be a hazardous substance, despite millions of houses across the country being built with asbestos.At this stage, asbestos was found to release hazardous fibres into the air, which we now know can pose several health risks including COPD and lung cancer. It has been reported that there are 2500 deaths each year connected to asbestos exposure. If you suspect that there is asbestos present in your home or garage, it’s important to carry out the necessary procedures to keep your family safe.
How common is asbestos?
If your home was built before the year 2000, there’s a high chance asbestos will be present, as it was a widespread building material used throughout the 20th century. In 1999, the use of asbestos became banned. It’s typically found in several locations within a building, including:
• Roofing
• Insulation
• Pipes and Gutters
• Garages
• Cement walls
The good news is that not all asbestos is dangerous, so there’s no need to panic. Providing it’s in a stable condition, there’s nothing to worry about. Danger only occurs when the asbestos has been disturbed or damaged; causing harmful fibres to be released. These fibres can be extremely hazardous to our health.

The service delivered by Asbestos Essentials has been unrivalled. The project was delivered with no hindrance, a survey followed by risk assessment and removal – everything went smoothly and efficiently.

Is there asbestos in my garage?
If your property was built before 2000 then there is a chance that asbestos could have been used in your garage.
If your home was built before the year 2000 and you have a garage, you must take extra precaution. Typically, the materials used to build your garage would have been a mixture of 85% cement and 15% asbestos. Asbestos is typically discovered in the roofing.

What type of asbestos is in my garage?

Chrysotile (white asbestos) was generally used to build houses and garages. It’s typically identified by a grey/white complexion and has a robust yet flexible composition. If you happen to spot these signs, it would be advised to hire a professional to pay a visit to your property for testing and possible removal of the asbestos.

When does asbestos need to be removed from my garage?
If your property was built before 2000 then there is a chance that asbestos could have been used in your garage.
As mentioned, asbestos doesn’t need to be removed until the material starts to crack, flake or break apart. The asbestos and cement mix is designed to be solid and durable, so you shouldn’t need to worry about it decaying to a dangerous degree.
There are many homes around the UK that contain asbestos with a very low-risk factor, so there’s no need to rip down the entire structure. Before hiring a professional to remove the asbestos, it may be more cost-effective to leave it be until you notice any minor changes.
If your asbestos is in good condition, it poses very little risk and doesn’t need to be removed immediately. Remember, you only need to think about removal costs if you think dust is being released into the air.
If asbestos is located in more hazardous areas, it should be removed without question.

Should I remove the asbestos myself?
If your property was built before 2000 then there is a chance that asbestos could have been used in your garage.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to remove the asbestos yourself. Although it’s not illegal, it’s not a simple DIY job. It is, however, against the law to remove asbestos and then bury or burn the material. Harmful fibres will be released into the environment, which will not only cause harm to yourself, but others in your neighbourhood.
Asbestos should be removed by hiring a trained specialist with the appropriate clothing and use of professional equipment. While it may be costly to complete the project, it’s well worth it to maintain your health and safety.

How much does it cost to remove asbestos?
Asbestos garage removal costs
The cost to remove asbestos from your garage is usually broken down into sections, dependant on where it is located. These stages include:

• Removing asbestos from a single garage roof
• Removing asbestos from a double garage roof
• Removing asbestos from garage insulation ceiling boards

The quantity of the asbestos present will have an impact on the price of removal. A rough estimate can be achieved by hiring a member of our team to inspect the property for you.
Firstly, a surveyor will visit your home and carry out the necessary checks in the garage to find out if there is asbestos present. They will also determine the quantity and severity of the risk.
Once this has been completed, it will be decided as to whether the asbestos needs to be removed. The removal will be more expensive than the identification, but this is essential to ensure the safety of your family. With the danger eliminated, you’ll no longer need to worry about the wellbeing of those in your household. As an added bonus, asbestos removal could also increase the value of your home.
There are certain aspects which will have an impact on the overall price of the project, including the location, scale and the equipment needed.
As a rough figure, small sections will cost approximately £1000 or less, whereas asbestos garage removal tends to be in the region of £2000. While the initial thought of the cost may seem expensive, it’s essentially a lifetime investment that’s a necessity for your long-term health.
