Asbestos Survey in Huddersfield

Asbestos Survey in HuddersfieldOne of the most important tasks to be carried out before a building is renovated or demolished is the asbestos survey in Huddersfield. Asbestos is classed as a hazardous material.  This is because the tiny fibres can easily be breathed into the lungs.  These sharp fibres penetrate the lung tissue and cause scarring.  The damage to the lungs is not seen immediately.  It can be many years before the symptoms become apparent.  This is the reason that buildings need an asbestos survey.  The survey is necessary for all commercial buildings erected or refurbished before 2000 as well as common domestic areas like stairwells and passages.  The use of asbestos was banned in 1999 because of the danger of it causing harm to those working near asbestos fibres.

You can never be too careful when it comes to dangerous materials. In Huddersfield, asbestos survey teams can quickly and accurately find and identify asbestos in buildings. This allows the owner or manager of the building to supply the contractor with exact areas where asbestos can be found. This is a legal obligation for the protection of all the site workers. We issue a comprehensive report on the findings. Our service will extend to a meeting to discuss the drafting of the report which needs to be kept on the premises at all times. This informs everyone where the asbestos material is and what state it is in.

We can best advise you on a course forward after an asbestos survey in Huddersfield. We have an expert team with many years of experience to guide you through the survey and any further necessary work on the building. Contact ACS today and we will visit your premises. If asbestos is found and it proves to be in a state of wear we will have to suggest a solution to prevent it becoming airborne and coming into contact with people. This may done by encapsulation or if the asbestos can be removed without great risk, we can arrange for it to be taken to a special asbestos disposal facility.
