Why would you need an asbestos survey in Malton if you are planning on demolishing your old building? After all, once the building has been dismantled, there should be nothing left. However, when you are planning on demolishing a building, an asbestos survey becomes all the more necessary. This is because that your building most likely has asbestos-containing building materials, especially if it was built before the 1990s. The asbestos present will be disturbed and damaged. This means that its tiny fibres will become airborne and could be inhaled by the workers doing the destruction job. This is when it becomes problematic as these fibres can become lodged in the stomach lining and lungs, which then result in incurable diseases.
