Asbestos Removal Hemel Hempstead

Hemel Hempstead

Found in the heart of Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead was born as long ago as the 8th century. Now home to Marlowe’s Shopping Precinct, Roman ruins and burial grounds in Highfield, Boxmoor and Gadebridge, and the old Gorhambury House just a few attractions; this is a district where every commuter wants to live.

As well as making a significant historical contribution to the borough of Dacorum, Hemel Hempstead is famous for the Chitterns, a hilly landscape filled with beech forests and working farmland. With such fabulous scenery and nature on the doorstep, it is no wonder that around 80,000 people call it home.

The History of Hemel Hempstead

Although Hemel Hempstead is recorded as a settlement as far back as the 8th century; it wasn’t until after the Second World War that it took off in terms of population. Significant Luftwaffe bombings in London saw around 90% of Hemel Hempstead levelled. Homes were re-built en-masse, with many residents resorting to the old aluminium temporary housing in the meantime.

Due to the timing of this rebuilding project, many of the homes in Hemel Hempstead were constructed using cement infused with asbestos. Between the forties and the eighties this was a widely used building material. It was finally banned in 1989 and a mass-phase out has been pursued ever since.

Asbestos in Hemel Hempstead

To this day, there are residential, commercial and industrial buildings in Hemel Hempstead that retain the asbestos cement used to build them. This cement is considered harmless unless disturbed. If it is undetected before major building work is taken out on your building then you risk exposing the workers to toxic air.

On 2017 the Hemel Today reported on a former Dacorum College worker who had died of prolonged exposure to asbestos. In 2017 the same paper also reported on the illegal fly tipping of asbestos contaminated material on Leverstock Green. In 2015, the BBC reported on a story about a grandmother confiscating contaminated material from children, who were throwing it at each other as they played.
