What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a group of microscopic natural minerals that are naturally fire resistant and flexible. These qualities were used widely several years ago in many applications such as pipe and building insulation, roofing, carpet underlay, ceiling, wall and floor tiles, patching compounds, vehicle brake pads, ironing board pads, electrical wiring, textured paints, cements, and many more applications across both domestic and industrial environments.

Usually there are other materials present which prevent the asbestos particles from being released into the air. However, when these materials become damaged, the danger becomes very real.

Asbestos Facts

  • There is no safe level of exposure when it comes to asbestos. Quite simply, the more exposure you have, the greater the risk of long-term health problems.
  • One of the common diseases from asbestos is Asbestosis. This is common amongst workers who manufacture products containing asbestos, or work within areas containing loose or damaged asbestos.
  • Another common disease caused by exposure to asbestos is Mesothelioma. This disease is a form of cancer of the cells that line the outside of the lungs, the inside of the ribs, and around the abdominal organs.
  • Products containing asbestos are all too common within both domestic and commercial environments, especially in buildings or offices built prior to the late 1970’s. If you suspect you have materials containing asbestos then you should not be tempted to investigate. Asbestos based products are fairly safe when undamaged, but as a precaution you should have you building assessed by a trained asbestos engineer. If you have damaged asbestos based products then do not delay – you and your colleagues and employees run a high risk of long term health problems. Often the symptoms may not be apparent for 30 years or so!

After a standard, non specific and vague comment on a house valuation about care needing to be taken around possible asbestos in an old property, I was thrown into panic. Tony and his colleague came around at short notice and assured me that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. It was so reassuring and refreshing to be dealt with in such a fair and reasonable manner. ICE were the right people to call and I recommend them unreservedly. Thank you.

Tony and his team have been on site and have carried out an assessment of the work needed to remove some asbestos containing material from a domestic setting. Ahead of the actual treatment work being carried out I can say that I am extremely pleased with how the assessment was carried out. They were punctual, friendly and gave a very honest assessment - being open about areas where they didn't think there as any risk as well as where there was risk. I've received test results which confirms t...

Many thanks for your very efficient and professional service. We contacted the company Monday, a representative came Tuesday morning and we had the lab. result that afternoon. Excellent service.

Gill and Steve Hawkins -

Tony came out in the evening as I was concerned that I had artex containing asbestos. He was so helpful and said it's definitely not asbestos and not to worry. He didn't even charge me for the advice as he could clearly see it was not the case. He was so helpful and trustworthy, it would have been easy for him to take money from me and he didn't. It's great to meet someone with such integrity, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Tony!
