Peter Tighe, managing director of The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency recently said that an increasing number of home owners who attempt renovation work such as the demolition of kitchens and bathrooms themselves are doing so without realising the risks of possible asbestos in their home.

We’re seeing an increasing amount of homeowners choosing to do renovations themselves and if their homes are pre-2000 they may be unknowingly exposing themselves to asbestos.

As we know exposure to asbestos can be deadly, with prolonged exposure having been proven to cause Asbestosis, Mesothelioma and lung disease – all incurable diseases.
