Here at Clearaway Asbestos, we will do our best to help our customers. If you are unsure about what asbestos is or want to learn more about the services we can provide, check out this list of our most frequently asked questions.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral that was once heavily used as a building material. There are six main types of asbestos, these are:

  • Chrysotile
  • Actinolite
  • Amosite
  • Anthophyllite
  • Crocidolite
  • Tremolite
If the asbestos fibres become airborne, then you can breathe them in. This can cause the fibres to be lodged in the lung tissue, damaging the lungs and causing various cancers and diseases.
In 1999 asbestos was officially banned for use in the UK. Since then, buying, selling, importing, and exporting materials containing asbestos has been illegal.

Asbestos causes no harm if it is left undamaged and untouched. If building works or removals are taking place in the area where you think asbestos might be, that could cause a risk by disturbing it. This is when you would need to contact Clearaway Asbestos.

Asbestos was used in many different building materials before it was banned in the UK. Some common places where it could be found include: 

  • Partition walls
  • Panels in fire doors
  • Lift shafts 
  • Some ceiling and floor tiles
  • Panels below windows
  • Garage/shed roofs
If you suspect asbestos to be present in your home, you should not attempt to remove it yourself. Doing this could cause the fibres to become airborne. This is when you should contact Clearaway Asbestos, and we can assist you.
