Asbestos Flue Removal
Ensure a safe and healthy environment with asbestos flue removal.
As long as your boiler is working and your home is warm, you probably don’t think about your flue too much, however, if your home was built before year 2000 there is a risk that your flue may contain asbestos, which could need to be removed. If you think that this may be the case at your home, then it’s important that you speak to a professional today.
Why might you have asbestos in your flue?
From around the 1930s until the end of the 20th century, asbestos was common in residential construction in the UK.. Asbestos was widely used in flue systems due to its heat-resistant and insulating properties. It is only in more recent years that the risks associated with asbestos have become more clear. As such, the materials are no longer widely used, however may still be present in homes across the country.
Warning signs of asbestos in your flue:
The most common warning sign that you may have an asbestos flue, is if your property was built before the 2000s, when asbestos was a regular feature of building materials.
Other warning signs include asbestos flues that are typically made of a white or grey-coloured cement-like material. They might appear damaged, deteriorated, or frayed due to ageing, weathering, or other external factors.
Risks associated with asbestos in your flue:
It is crucial to be aware of the potential risks associated with asbestos-containing flue materials. Over time, weathering, degradation, or disturbance can release harmful asbestos fibres into the air. Inhalation of these fibres can lead to serious health complications, such as lung diseases, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. Therefore, it is vital to address any concerns regarding asbestos promptly. If you believe that you have a flue which contains asbestos, it is not recommended that you try to remove it yourself as any damage could cause these fibres to be released.
