What’s The Danger?
Asbestos is regarded as the single greatest cause of work related illness and death in the UK. Because the particles which cause sickness easily become airborne, and it is through inhalation that the disease is contracted it is necessary to take extraordinary precautions when dealing with asbestos. If you find asbestos in your home or place of work It's necessary to call in qualified removals experts to deal with the problem, which is where Andrew and his team at BSW Building Services come in. BSW Building Services are a fully qualified and equipped company in the Surrey, Kent and Sussex area who are able to remove asbestos safely and efficiently with the least disruption to you or your business.
When dealt with by experts asbestos can be removed safely without increasing the risk exposure to people who live and work where asbestos was found. Not dealing with asbestos when it is discovered isn’t an option; while asbestos hasn’t been used in construction for years old asbestos continues to cause health problems for people who come into contact with it, over a thousand new cases of disease related to asbestos exposure are reported to doctors every year.
