In Dewsbury, asbestos surveys help to locate, identify, quantify and assess the quality of asbestos on your premises. Today, it’s hard to imagine that asbestos was once called the “magic mineral.” This naturally occurring mineral has soft fluffy fibres that can be moulded into any shape. There are different types of asbestos known as white, blue or brown asbestos, depending on the type of silicate present. It is flexible, yet sturdy, heat-resistant, immune to electricity and chemical corrosion. It is also a very effective insulator, which can be blended into a variety of materials like paper, cement, paint, and plastic, and used in a diverse range of applications. Unfortunately, since the beginning of the twentieth century, the health hazards and toxicity of asbestos began to emerge. While the symptoms of asbestos exposure do not manifest themselves immediately, the long term effects are highly dangerous. It can take up to fifty years for asbestos-related symptoms to surface. In its undisturbed, whole state, asbestos doesn’t pose health hazards. But due to ageing and damage, the fibres work loose, float in the atmosphere and enter the human body, causing a variety of respiratory illnesses and cancers.
Keeping these factors in mind, a detailed asbestos survey in Dewsbury can help set your mind at rest. To find out more about an affordable asbestos survey, contact ACS. If you occupy an older building, an asbestos survey is crucial, because you may need repairs, refurbishment or demolition, increasing the risk of exposure.
