An asbestos survey in Leek is the first step in ensuring that your building is safe. Asbestos was the wonder mineral of the 20th century. It was used as an additive in many building materials because of its excellent qualities. Asbestos has unrivalled thermal properties. Its thermal stability makes it a suitable material for construction. When used in buildings the heat resistance keeps the house warm during cold seasons and keeps the heat out during hot weather. The thermal properties also make it a suitable material for insulating boilers, furnaces and pipes. Moreover, asbestos is a poor conductor of electricity and was used for covering electrical installations. As a result of its many qualities, asbestos was the most popular construction material additive.
For your building in Leek, an asbestos survey is important. In fact, it is a mandatory requirement before undertaking any demolition or renovation work. When the detrimental consequences of the exposure to asbestos became known, it was subsequently banned. As asbestos ages it becomes friable. This means that when asbestos is disturbed, it releases its firsts into the air. These, if inhaled, cause extreme damage to the lining of the lungs and in turn, cause incurable disease. In order to minimise the risk of such danger, asbestos within your building must be managed. This starts with a professional asbestos survey. Our expert team is available to assist.
