An asbestos survey in Lichfield is mandatory if you, as the property owner, are planning on doing extensions to your building. It is necessary for a professional and comprehensive survey on your building if you suspect there may be asbestos-containing materials present. While asbestos in itself is not harmful, it is when materials containing asbestos is disturbed that it becomes a threat. When it is disturbed, its fibres are released into the air. If these are breathed in they can cause serious lung diseases, including mesothelioma, asbestosis and cancers. Until 1999, asbestos containing materials were extensively used for a wide range of construction purposes. This means that many buildings, particularly older building, may contain asbestos.
To ensure your obligations as a dutyholder in Lichfield, an asbestos survey must be completed. This will determine the amount, if any, and the condition of asbestos-containing materials in the building. In order to remain on the safe side of asbestos, speak to ACS about an asbestos survey for your building. We offer a number of different types of asbestos surveys to meet your particular requirements. The management survey, which is the our standard survey, is to locate the presence and the extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials which may be disturbed during normal occupancy, including future maintenance and refurbishment, and to assess their condition. We also provide a more extensive Refurb Demolition survey. This survey is required before and refurbishment or demolition is performed. This survey does not assess the condition of the asbestos, but notes areas of damage or where more asbestos debris could be found.
