Why would you need an asbestos survey in Skelmersdale for your building? The main reason for needing as asbestos survey is to protect those working in your building from exposure to asbestos fibres. If your building was erected or renovated before 2000, it is highly likely to contain products that have asbestos. Asbestos was extensively used as a building material additive because of it numerous strong qualities. In fact, there are over 300 uses of asbestos in many building products. The danger lies in the condition and age of the asbestos. When it is either, or both, and is disturbed, it releases its tiny fibres into the air. These fibres are so small that they cannot be seen with the naked eye.
To prevent such incidences from happening, it is best to consult with a professional company. In Skelmersdale, an asbestos survey can be professionally carried out. The reason for a survey is to determine the whereabouts, how much and the condition of any asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos fibres are very narrow and as such, are easily breathed in. These tiny fibres do not dissolve and can remain in a person’s lungs indefinitely. This in turn leads to incurable cancers and diseases. After the dangers of asbestos were determined, the use of asbestos as an aid for building material was banned. Regardless of the ban, there are still many buildings that contain asbestos. The best thing to do is manage it correctly. In order to do this, and as it is a legal requirement, is to schedule an asbestos survey with an authorised company.
