For property owners considering demolition or refurbishment, an asbestos survey in Driffield must be conducted before any work begins. As many older buildings were constructed using asbestos-containing materials, it is imperative that the condition and location of these materials is determined before any work begins. Asbestos, when inhaled, causes disease and cancer, and as it is a requirement of law, an asbestos survey is necessary.
For property owners in Driffield, an asbestos survey is conducted to determine the condition and location of asbestos-containing materials before any new construction work takes place. Asbestos was regarded as the go-to material because of its many valuable properties. Asbestos was a cheap, durable and most construction and manufacturing industries were enamoured with its potential. As a result, it was used extensively in construction materials, including asbestos cement and insulation for buildings and machinery. Today, even after its ban for use as a construction material, many buildings, particularly those built before 1980, still contain asbestos in some form or another. When asbestos is disturbed, its fibres become airborne, and it is these fibres, when unsuspectingly inhaled, cause diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. In order to ensure that you meet the legal requirements, and to ensure your building is safe, speak to the professionals for a comprehensive asbestos survey.
