For a comprehensive asbestos survey in Rochdale, speak to the experts, ACS. An asbestos survey is necessary if you are planning on renovating or demolishing your older building. As asbestos was regarded as a wonder material, many, if not all buildings constructed prior to the 2000’s have asbestos-containing materials. While asbestos in itself is not harmful, it is when it is disturbed and its fibres become airborne that it poses a problem. It was used in many applications in building as it had many benefits. It was used as a fireproofing material, a strengthening material, and because of its heat resistant qualities, it was the perfect thermal insulation.
Asbestos was indeed the wonder building material. In Rochdale, an asbestos survey is needed as despite all the benefits of this wonder material, as it ages, gets damaged and begins to crumble, it becomes highly dangerous to those in its vicinity. Asbestos fibres crumble, become airborne and can be inhaled by unsuspecting inhabitants of the building. This in turn leads to incurable diseases such as malignant mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. It is also required by law that if you are the duty holder of your building, an asbestos survey must be completed to ensure the proper management of asbestos.
