What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral that was once widely employed for its heat resistance. It is made up of long, thin fibrous crystals that can be discharged into the environment through abrasion and other processes.

What are the health risks or diseases associated with asbestos inhalation?

Asbestos fibre inhalation can cause a variety of serious lung problems including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. Asbestos fibres can build up in the lungs and cause scarring and inflammation, affecting breathing and causing major health problems.

Where can asbestos be found in Scotland?

Asbestos can be discovered in any residence or building constructed in Scotland prior to the year 2000, as it was widely employed in a range of building materials. From roughly 1930, asbestos was a particularly common building material in the construction of homes and buildings in Scotland.

Where is asbestos commonly found in homes?

Between the 1930s and the 1990s, asbestos was widely employed in the construction of Scottish housing units. It can be found in insulating boards, lagging, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, cement products, and textured coatings like Artex. Some older appliances, such as boilers, may potentially contain asbestos, as well as pipe and duct insulation. It is crucial to recognise that asbestos may be present in areas that are not visible, such as behind walls or under flooring.

How long does asbestos removal take?

The length of time it takes to remove asbestos is determined by various factors, including the project’s size and complexity, the amount of asbestos to be removed, and the location of the asbestos. We work effectively and safely at Farden Contracts to accomplish every job on time and under budget.

How much does asbestos removal cost in Scotland?

The cost of asbestos removal in Scotland is determined by a number of factors, including the amount of asbestos present, the location of the asbestos, and the type of asbestos. Asbestos removal can cost between £50 and £150 per square metre, according to various estimates. Additional charges like disposal fees, site surveys, and air testing can all have an impact on the overall cost. To ensure safe and proper asbestos removal, it is suggested that you employ a professional asbestos removal company.
