Many people underestimate the importance of asbestos testing and removal of artex in Wirral, especially of artex ceilings. Most are unaware of the dangers and health implications associated with exposed asbestos and asbestos fibres. New legislation in the UK requires all building projects to undergo asbestos testing. Why such a hype about asbestos? It is a naturally occurring substance that was once used to increase strength of building materials. Sometimes asbestos is also added to insulation and making things fire-proof. Up until the 1970s, asbestos and its hidden dangers were largely unexplored. Today, due to the significant problems that do occur from asbestos exposure, it has come under strict legislation. When asbestos is inhaled, ingested or you are exposed to it somehow, it can lead to health issues. Usually the presence of asbestos does not cause a problem, but with time asbestos fibres start to wear and tear and break. When they mix up with atmospheric oxygen, it can be accidentally breathed in, leading to significant health issues such as lesions in the lungs.
