Asbestos Survey in Birstall

Asbestos Survey in BirstallIf you need an asbestos survey in Birstall, you can rely on ACS to provide an excellent service at a competitive price. An asbestos survey is necessary to ensure the health and safety of the occupants of a building. As many buildings were constructed using asbestos-containing materials, it is imperative that these buildings are checked to ensure that they are safe for occupation. Asbestos has many positive qualities which is why it was added to building materials. However, it was discovered that long term exposure to asbestos resulted in incurable diseases and its use in building materials ended.

If you are the owner of an older building in Birstall, an asbestos survey is required, especially if any renovation or demolition work is planned. The vast majority of buildings constructed before the 1980’s were done so using asbestos-containing building materials. It is understandable why asbestos was so widely used as it has many qualities such as its strength, fire resistant properties and durability. Asbestos itself is not dangerous. It is when its fibres are damaged and disturbed, allowing them to become air borne that it poses a serious health threat. Inhalation of these air borne fibres results in diseases such as asbestosis and malignant mesothelioma. They are incurable. It is required by law for the owner, or the duty holder, to enlist the services of a professional company to conduct an asbestos survey. By doing so, the best method to manage the asbestos-containing materials will be determined, thus ensuring the safety of the occupants of the building.
