For property owners in Loughborough, an asbestos survey is necessary if yours is an older building. Studies show that asbestos causes the death of nearly 5000 people every year in the UK. It is not just a problem that affects older people but poses a risk to people of all ages because asbestos was extensively used till year 2000. It can be found across the country in residential, industrial and commercial buildings, ships and vehicles that were constructed or manufactured in an earlier era. Asbestos was once considered a “miracle product” that was easily available, affordable, versatile and effective for a variety of applications. In residential and commercial buildings it may occur in pipes, water-tanks, cisterns, insulation, decorative coatings, fireproof coating, panels and false ceilings, partitions, paint, gutters, soffits, and roofing felt. In industrial buildings, asbestos can be found in spray-on coatings in beams and walls, floor tiles, insulation and partitions, fire-blankets, around boilers, and roofs. The huge amount of asbestos that was used makes it all the more difficult to identify and locate

However, with ageing, wear and tear, activities associated with repairs, refurbishment, renovation and demolition of buildings, the fibres work loose and enter the atmosphere. They enter our respiratory system causing a range of problems like allergies, mesothelioma, and cancers.
