If you are searching for high quality asbestos removal in Cumbria, Greenfield Removals is the market-leading choice for domestic, industrial and commercial projects that require expert guidance. Finding a hazardous material can be panicking and worrying, but our proven track record, backed by a three-year asbestos removal license, provides peace of mind for building dutyholders.

Based in Chorley, Lancashire, we have built a strong presence in the Cumbria asbestos removal industry, blazing a trail of innovation with regard to techniques, equipment and technology. The dangers of asbestos can make it a frightening concept, but we yearn to distinguish fact from fiction while acting in the best interests of clients.

What is asbestos? A simple guide

Asbestos is the generic name given to a family of naturally occurring minerals that have been mined for thousands of years. There are six types of asbestos: chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite and actinolite. However, the three most commonly encountered types of asbestos are chrysotile (white asbestos), amosite (brown asbestos) and crocidolite (blue asbestos).

Materials containing asbestos are strong, incombustible and heat resistant. For decades, those desirable properties made asbestos a mainstay of construction sites and reconstruction projects. Its relative affordability led to widespread popularity in the UK building trade, until the supply and use of asbestos was outlawed in 1999 amid mounting evidence of its carcinogenic potential.

More than 3,500 people die each year from asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer. Asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs, is also a frequent problem after exposure. Asbestos remains the biggest occupational health hazard in the UK, and dealing with it requires a proactive strategy formed by specialist advisors.

What to do if you find asbestos at home or work

If you encounter a product suspected of containing asbestos, the first thing to do is make the respective area safe and restrict access to minimise potential exposure. Next, the best course of action is to contact a suitably qualified asbestos removal company, who will provide free and impartial help on the best abatement techniques to follow.

Rather than watching YouTube videos about how to remove asbestos, attempting to do it yourself, ring Greenfield Removals for considered guidance. We were recently awarded a three-year asbestos removal licence by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), ranking among the best asbestos removal firms in Cumbria and further afield.

Damaged asbestos poses a serious health risk, and delaying the asbestos removal process can have devastating consequences. You can never be too cautious when dealing with asbestos, so take a moment to think, consider your options and appoint a company experienced in Cumbria asbestos removal to make a huge difference. Choose Greenfield Removals, your proven partner for all environmental abatement needs.
