An asbestos survey in Walkden is essential for the safety of yourself and your employees. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral and its history dates back to the Stone Age. It was mined and then used as an additive to building materials. While it provided many advantages when used with building materials, it was discovered that exposure resulted in deadly diseases and cancer. Its use was subsequently banned. However, as it was so extensively used as a building material additive, a very large number of buildings still contain asbestos. Left alone, asbestos is harmless. It is when it is damaged, disturbed or aged that it is deadly. Its microscopic fibres become airborne and can be inhaled by those in its vicinity.
Asbestos diseases can take decades to develop. In Walkden, an asbestos survey must be completed to ensure the correct management of any asbestos-containing materials in your building. By 1999 all types of asbestos-containing materials were banned in the UK. However, because of its popularity and its many favourable properties, its use was extensive. Most old buildings, particularly those that were constructed before 2000, contain asbestos in some form. We offer professional asbestos surveys. This is done to locate the presence of any asbestos-containing material that is likely to be disturbed or damaged in the foreseeable future. The survey will also indicate the condition of these materials. An asbestos survey is best done by a professional that has the experience, knowledge and skill needed for working with asbestos.
