Most home-owners and commercial building owners are surprised to learn how much asbestos their buildings contain. Studies show that nearly 70% of homes in the UK feature some form of asbestos. In Stretford, asbestos survey companies help to accurately pinpoint these asbestos locations. It is most often found in false ceilings, walls and partitions, thermal/acoustic insulation, cement roofing, ceiling tiles, soffit boards, flue pipes and chimneys, decorative coating like Artex, thermo-plastic floor tiling, electrical fuse-boards, switch-gear, toilet cisterns, and water-tanks. Apart from asbestos itself, asbestos containing materials like fire-proof paints are also potentially hazardous. The important aspect is to know exactly where and in what condition asbestos is. If left undisturbed, it is not harmful. However, with age, wear and tear, the fibres get loosened and float into the atmosphere and into our lungs. Here it can cause a variety of conditions, including lung and respiratory problems, cancers like mesothelioma, asbestosis, as well as allergies.
If you’re planning improvements, demolitions, refurbishments or renovations, extensions or new builds, a thorough asbestos survey in Stretford should be undertaken.
