Speak to ACS Health and Safety when you need an asbestos survey in Humberside. An asbestos survey is important, especially if you are planning renovations or a demolition of an older building. A survey will establish if you have asbestos on your property and where it is located. As disturbed asbestos is dangerous, a survey is important. It is also the first step in complying with safety legislation. Asbestos was used as a building material, particularly in buildings built until the 1980s. Asbestos can be found in various places in a building such as a cistern, water tank, guttering and down pipes, and ceiling tiles. An asbestos insulating board is also found around your boiler, behind the fire, behind the fuse box and in partition walls.
If you are concerned about asbestos-containing materials in your building in Humberside, an asbestos survey will determine the quantity, location and the quality of any asbestos. We provide comprehensive and easy to understand asbestos surveys. Committed to educating businesses and homeowners on the dangers of asbestos, we take a holistic approach to asbestos management and will tailor a solution to suit your unique situation. The survey we provide will determine if you have asbestos on your property. It will identify exactly where the asbestos is, and it will indicate the condition of the asbestos. If asbestos is undamaged and left undisturbed it does not pose a danger. It is when it is damaged or needs to be moved, for example in a renovation, that tiny fibres can be released into the air. These can be breathed in. The fibres lodge themselves deep in the lung tissue and this can ultimately result in fatal diseases.
