Are you looking for an asbestos survey in Huddersfield? Asbestos is a dangerous material which can cause a broad variety of pulmonary conditions as well as malignant mesothelioma, which is one of the deadliest cancers. About three quarters of mesothelioma cases are connected to a prolonged asbestos exposure, and asbestos containing materials (ACM) are most commonly found in buildings from the mid-20th century. According to the Cancer Research UK, there were 2600 people diagnosed with mesothelioma and 2400 who succumbed to the disease across the country in 2011. ACMs can also cause lung cancer and a chronic condition called asbestosis. This is why ACMs are now out of use but are still present in many buildings. ACMs are most commonly found in roofs (especially garage roofs), insulation boards, pipes and housing internal walls. What is even more worrying about ACMs is that asbestos fibres spread over a long distance and can cause these conditions even to those who live miles away, in new areas where ACMs haven’t been used, and this is why there is a campaign to remove ACMs from all buildings and demolish those where ACMs can’t be effectively removed.
In Huddersfield, asbestos surveys can be carried out by Asbestos Associated. This company does asbestos surveys as they are ISO 9001: 2000 certified.
