Worried about asbestos in your building? In Atherton, an asbestos survey from ACS can give you the information you need to proceed. Asbestos is a dangerous substance. It was much loved in the building industry in the twentieth century. With its excellent insulation properties, it was used for a variety of building products. Many buildings from the era still contain asbestos-containing materials. It was only in the mid to late part of the century that people became aware of the dangers asbestos posed. Asbestos is made of tiny fibres. When it is broken or disturbed, these fibres are released into the air. As they are small, and can be inhaled into the lungs, this is what makes them dangerous. The fibres lodge in the lungs, resulting in inflammation. This can lead to diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. An asbestos survey will establish the condition of the asbestos in your building and indicate if there is any need for concern.
