Asbestos Survey in Bolton

Asbestos Survey in BoltonAn asbestos survey in Bolton is best done by professionals. Asbestos caused a huge scare in the 20th century following its link to lung malignancy. Despite the ban on its unsafe use, many buildings still have asbestos in the structure. Asbestos has unique characteristics that favour its use in construction. The mineral is an insulator and has fire resistant characteristics. It has silicate fibres which are finer than a human hair and can easily be inhaled. Since the fibres are invisible to the human eye, they can be lodged in the lungs after unknowingly inhaling them. Therefore, asbestos is safer when bonded in a structure rather than disintegrated and free in the air.

If you are going to carry out a major renovation in Bolton, an asbestos survey is crucial. Asbestos gets released into the air following weathering, erosion, cutting, sawing, drilling, sanding or hammering. Unfortunately, this mineral is found in asbestos cement that is used in roofing, fencing and plumbing. If you have any intention or plans for renovation or demolition, its best to call a professional. At ACS, we know how to handle asbestos.
