Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. Although there are many different types of asbestos fibres, the three most commonly used in the UK were Crocidolite, Amosite and Chrysotile (blue, brown and white respectively). Large amounts of asbestos was used in building materials and construction up to the year 2000 in the UK.
If left undisturbed asbestos presents a negligible risk, however incidents such as fire and flooding however can cause damage, exposing and disturbing asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) within a property's structures and fixtures. Releasing harmful fibres can cause serious health risks therefore the handling, removal and disposal of ACM’s is carefully regulated and should be undertaken by specialist and experienced contractors at all times.
