You will need an asbestos survey in Pontefract before you start upgrading your newly bought home. While older buildings are beautiful and retain a timeless elegance in their structure, it is most likely that they were built with asbestos-containing materials. This is typical of most, if not all, older buildings. Asbestos was discovered as a wonder material, with many noteworthy qualities, and as such, was used extensively in the construction of homes, offices, warehouses and many other structures. It was only discovered after many years once the use of asbestos was well-established in the construction trade, just how dangerous asbestos was. Asbestos itself is not dangerous, however, it is when it ages, becomes brittle and damaged, that it releases tiny fibres into the air. These fibres cannot be easily seen and they are inhaled by unsuspecting visitors to the building.
Asbestos can cause incurable disease such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. In Pontefract, an asbestos survey is necessary to ensure that your building is compliant with current asbestos legislation. It is also necessary to ensure the health and safety of the occupants of the building. The occupants are not only those who will live in the building, but also those who will be completing the renovation work. Before you make the final arrangement for the renovation work, speak to ACS about an affordable, comprehensive asbestos survey.
