Did you know that an asbestos survey in Grantham is a legal obligation if you are planning to demolish or refurbish your older building? It must be done for buildings constructed before the 1980s. Asbestos, while in itself is not harmful, can cause incurable disease and cancer if its fibres are disturbed and inhaled. Asbestos was regarded as a wonderful addition to building materials because of its exceptional properties. It was a cheap, durable and flexible. It also acts as an insulating and fireproofing agent. It is easy to see why asbestos was regarded so highly. It was later that the effects of asbestos usage became apparent in the health of those who were exposed to it.
