Asbestos Survey in Chesterfield is Necessary for Your Old Building

Asbestos Survey in Chesterfield An asbestos survey in Chesterfield is necessary if you’re planning on any renovations or alterations. For any building erected prior to 2000, this is a necessary procedure. It is essential for the safety of those who occupy your building. Furthermore, it is a legal requirement.  Asbestos was used as a building material additive because of its excellent properties.  By adding asbestos, materials were stronger, and heat and chemical resistant.  However, as some asbestos products age they become brittle and, when disturbed, release microscopic fibres into the air.  It is when these asbestos fibres are inhaled you are at risk of developing asbestos related diseases later in life.

Once inhaled, the asbestos fibres lodge in the lining of the lungs, causing irreparable harm.  Therefore, in Chesterfield, an asbestos survey is essential.  The fibres are tiny and cannot be seen by the naked eye. A professional survey can locate any asbestos-containing materials in your building.  The survey can also determine the extent of the asbestos, and its condition.  If the asbestos in your building is found to be a danger, it may need to be removed and disposed of.  Furthermore, as the owner or manager of the building, it is your legal responsibility to manage the asbestos.  A management plan can be created using the information gathered from an asbestos survey. However, it is important to use the services of a professional company for the survey. Let us assist.
