An asbestos survey in Bristol is the first step in ensuring that your older building is safe for occupancy. Most old buildings have some form of asbestos-containing materials. This is a result of the extensive use of asbestos as an additive to building materials. It was regarded as a wonder material as it provided many positive benefits. However, it was discovered that exposure to asbestos caused life-threatening disease. Asbestos itself is not harmful, however, when it ages or is damaged, microscopic fibres become airborne and subsequently inhaled by unsuspecting people.
The asbestos fibres lodge in the lining of the lungs and cause disease. In Bristol, an asbestos survey will determine the extent and condition of any asbestos-containing materials in your building.
