Exposure to asbestos can cause serious disease and long term health problems. Working in conditions where asbestos is present without proper equipment and expertise is likely to result in an individual inhaling harmful dust. Roof Repair have over 25 years' experience in asbestos disposal and safely carry out projects across Dublin every day.
Asbestos roofs were popular in the 1950s and have a grey, hard and corrugated appearance. There are three types: crociodolite, chrysotile and amosite. All three are extremely dangerous to remove without the correct training and expertise.

The dangers of asbestos exposure
The human body cannot destroy the toxic fibres once they are lodged in lung or body tissues.
Individuals can develop the following diseases after exposure:
Asbestosis: A serious, chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease related to inhaling toxic fibres
Lung cancer: People who have been exposed to asbestos have a significantly greater risk of developing lung cancer
Mesothelioma: a rare form of cancer that most often occurs in the thin membrane lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, and heart

Why is asbestos so dangerous?
According to the HSE, around 5000 workers die every year due to Asbestos exposure. Asbestos is an extremely carcinogenic material that can still be found in all types of buildings.
When asbestos is disturbed it sends microscopic fibres into the air. When these fibres are inhaled they can lead to a variety of serious illnesses including:
- Mesothelioma (a type of lung cancer that is almost always fatal)
- Lung Cancer
- Asbestosis ( a scarring of the internal lung tissue)
- Pleural thickening
Our Asbestos Removal Dublin services use the very latest removal techniques to ensure that asbestos is removed while causing the least amount of disruption – and therefore the least amount of fibres entering the air – as possible.
