You may be aware that it is necessary to have an asbestos survey, especially if yours is an older building, and you are planning on renovating in the near future. Why have an asbestos survey, you may wonder? Asbestos was used extensively as a wonder additive building material. It was found to have many excellent properties, including strength, fireproofing, and heat resistant properties. It is no wonder it was so extensively used. However, this was before the negative effects of exposure to asbestos was discovered. When asbestos is disturbed, or is damaged, it poses a health risk as its fibres are released into the air. These fibres are inhaled, and will cause diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
