Asbestos Removal Aycliffe - Ross Wright Ltd

Here at Ross Wright Ltd we have an expert team that will safely and professionally take care of all asbestos removal in Aycliffe, and the whole of the North East. Asbestos is a dangerous substance that should now not be in any properties, and if it is found, a specialist company such as Ross Wright will need to remove it carefully and properly following all of the rules and regulations in relation to handling asbestos. Between 1950-1990, asbestos was one of the most common materials used when building a property and it is now unsafe and regulated by the law.

If the asbestos is damaged or has cracks in it and it is in your home or workplace then it can be a real danger to those within the building. Was your building purchased before 2000? It might be worth you speaking to a specialist company and allow them to check… it’s for your own safety.

The Risks of Asbestos

When the asbestos is damaged, the fibres that come from within the material are able to escape into the air which is when it can start to cause a harm to your overall health, including lungs and breathing. In worst case scenarios, it can lead to lung disease and cancer which will only start to show years later… this is why it’s important you find the asbestos in your property as early as possible as it won’t have as big impact on you.

Where in Your Property May it Be?

One of the most common places you will find asbestos is near insulation boards and in the partitions of the walls. It can also be in roof tiles and within cement products.
