Providing Domestic Asbestos Removal in St Albans
St Albans is a contemporary city with a Roman heritage, and remnants of its glorious past exist in the form of an amphitheatre, parts of the city wall, and numerous Roman artefacts housed in the local museum.
The Romans would have been using asbestos in their buildings back in the second century AD when this extraordinary mineral was highly valued for its strength, sound absorption, and insulating qualities. We have continued to build with asbestos ever since the Romans, and it was only in 1999 that it was banned because of the harm it can cause to the lungs once inhaled. Throughout the 21st century Avanti has been working on St Albans asbestos removals for domestic residents.
Why Domestic Asbestos Removal in St Albans is Important
Between 1930-1980 asbestos was commonly used as a house building material, its legacy can be found in pipes, garage roofs, floor tiles and cold-water storage tanks. If left undisturbed it is unlikely to cause a problem, however if a refurbishment project or a house conversion exposes the asbestos there is a danger that its microscopic fibres could become airborne which is where inhalation can lead to serious lung-related diseases.
