At ACS, we use an asbestos survey in Widnes to help your business comply with government health and safety standards. The survey we conduct is the first step to asbestos management expected of all businesses. Our surveys are non-invasive, low cost and easily understood. We check your building for potential hazardous asbestos, show the location within the buildings floor plan and make recommendations for management. Now, if no asbestos exists, you’re done. If anybody asks, show them your survey as a proof that your building is asbestos free. We are not the unscrupulous environmental company that charges for the removal of asbestos that is not there or is not a hazard.
If your building was built before 1990, there is a good chance asbestos is present somewhere in the building. For your building in Widnes, asbestos survey may show asbestos in the insulation around plumbing and heating pipes; mixed in concrete, or even in paint and ceiling tiles. Asbestos was used liberally in building construction because of its insulation and fire retardant properties. Our survey will show where the asbestos is in your building and the condition. If the asbestos is undisturbed, our survey will show that and recommend watching it for any changes. A building owner or manager is responsible to check the asbestos periodically for damage that could release fibres into the air. Asbestos can remain undisturbed and safe for decades.
Sometimes, ACS conducts an asbestos survey in Widnes and our findings show the presence of dangerous asbestos. When that happens, our solution is removal. Working only with asbestos removal organisations that are fully qualified and meet our approval, you can rest assured that the asbestos-containing materials will be expertly and safely removed. We protect your own safety and that of your building occupants. If you haven’t done so already, contact us today for your asbestos survey. Since sealed asbestos is safe, we won’t be breaking into any walls or causing any damage to your building. If removal is necessary, you may not have to evacuate the entire building while we work. Frequently we can seal the work area so the rest of the building is safe.
