Asbestos: Still Present in Garages in Wimbledon and Raynes Park
Trained Experts from Advance Asbestos Can Safely Remove This Hazard
It may be surprising, but there are still many properties in the district of Wimbledon, Raynes Park and the surrounding areas that have elements of Asbestos in their construction. So what is Asbestos and why should you remove it from your property. This natural mineral was mined for decades, but products made with asbestos found a ready market during and after World War II. In addition to being added to cement and plastic (for strength), the material provided excellent fire-proofing and insulation. This made it popular in the ship-building industry, in construction, and in the boiler/heating field. To put asbestos characteristics in the simplest terms: It does not burn easily and is extremely resistant to heat. The automotive industry and companies installing steam pipes and boilers found asbestos to be excellent as insulation, and in manufacturing vehicle brakes. These same characteristics made the material a great choice for building construction, so it was used in flooring, roofing and in ceilings. It is very common to find Asbestos in Garage roofs.

Asbestos in Garage Roofing
One of the common uses for asbestos, until it was banned from use in the 1980s, was in the production of panels used in garage roofing.
