An asbestos survey in Wakefield is required before you can begin with the renovations to your building. You may wonder why this is necessary, after all, asbestos use in construction was banned quite a number of years ago. While the use of asbestos-containing materials was banned, there are still many buildings that have asbestos within their structure. You probably know that asbestos was highly regarded for its amazing qualities like strength and durability. It was only discovered, once the use of asbestos in construction became the ‘norm’, just how dangerous is to the health of the people exposed to it.
If you are planning renovations to your building in Wakefield, an asbestos survey is mandatory. Asbestos, when disturbed or damaged, released tiny fibres, which then can be inhaled by unsuspecting people. Once the fibres are inhaled, they can cause incurable diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural effusion and lung cancer. An asbestos survey can determine the location and amount of any asbestos or asbestos-containing material. It can also determine the quality of the asbestos in the building, and advise on precautionary measures and a management plan.
