A little Asbestos background-
Asbestos is a silicate mineral and also a class 1 cancer-causing carcinogen. It was widely used in various types of building materials from the 1940s through to its total UK ban in 1999. Edinburgh Asbestos removal through ASA is in line with all the strictest up to date legislation and associated codes of practice. It is a fact that many thousands of tonnes of asbestos materials have been removed over the last 40 years.  But Asbestos is still located within thousands of buildings throughout Edinburgh and Scottish properties. 

Asbestos-containing materials-
The varying materials that contain asbestos range from; Roofing sheets and soundproofing to insulation, toilet cisterns and felts & bitumen.  Indeed literally hundreds of products had asbestos added to them for a variety of useful purposes. Some others uses were Fire & Heat resistance, acoustics and strengthening of base products such as cement roofing sheets and vinyl floor tiles. Other typical asbestos-containing products include; floor coverings and adhesives, textured coatings, sprayed coatings and Pipe insulation. 

 A little Asbestos History-
Asbestos was regarded, for many years, as an excellent building material. For this and other practical reasons, it was installed in numerous Edinburgh buildings and throughout the entire United Kingdom.

Although the first reported cases of asbestos-related health problems can be found as far back as the 1930s. It was not until the 1980s that direct action was taken on its usage. Firstly by a voluntary ban followed by legislation and eventual total ban in 1999.

Domestic areas covered by Asbestos regulations-
There are still numerous buildings within large cities such as Edinburgh where asbestos is located.
Although the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 only specifies requirements for Non-Domestic premises constructed before 1999. It should be noted that all buildings, including domestic premises, have the potential to contain asbestos. Indeed, Communal areas of Domestic and residential properties in Edinburgh are covered by the regulations. And therefore require an asbestos assessment to comply with current legislation.
