- What Is Asbestos and Asbestos Artex Coating?
Asbestos is a poisonous and dangerous substance that can cause ill-health to anyone who disturbs or damages it. Once the asbestos has been disturbed, then tiny asbestos fibres are released into the air. Once they been inhaled they have the potential to cause serious long-term damage to people’s health.
Asbestos had its peaks and it was used in a variety of many buildings, structures and products(Artex) because of its range of incredible and idyllic properties. As well as being strong and cheap, asbestos is also heat-resistant, sound-absorbent and resistant to electrical currents – ideal for the construction of homes and workplaces.
One of the key uses for asbestos was in textured coatings, like Artex, which were used to create decorative finishes on ceilings and walls. It was particularly popular in the 1970s and 1980s.
- Why do we need this removing?
If you inhale any of these of asbestos fibres, it can cause serious diseases to the lungs, and other vital organs. These problems may not appear until years after the exposure has occurred. Asbestosis can cause a build-up of scar-like tissue in the lungs and result in the loss of lung function that often progresses to disability and in some cases death. We advise you dont touch asbestos or anything related. This should be carried out by a professional body, who can safely remove and dispose of any unwanted asbestos.
There are four main diseases caused by asbestos:
- Mesothelioma (which is always fatal)
- Lung cancer (almost always fatal)
- Asbestosis (not always fatal, but it can be very debilitating)
- Diffuse pleural thickening (not fatal).
According to the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), asbestos-related conditions are responsible for around 4,000 deaths a year.
