An asbestos survey in Crewe is mandatory if you are planning on renovating or demolishing your building. This is especially true if your building is an older one, constructed before the 1980’s. Asbestos was highly regarded as an additive to building materials. The reason for this is that it provided many positive properties. Its natural fire-resistant property made it ideal for roofing, flooring, and thermal insulation. Asbestos was also a very good additive with cement which added strength to the material. Many, if not most, buildings were constructed using asbestos-containing materials.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral which is found in the ground. In Crewe, an asbestos survey should be conducted to determine the location and the condition of any asbestos in your building. Asbestos itself is not harmful, the danger is when it is old or damaged. When this is the case, it releases microscopic fibres into the air. These fibres are then inhaled, become lodged in the lining of the lungs and stomach, and cause incurable disease like lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. Asbestos-containing materials that crumble easily when handled are those that are the culprits in causing a health hazard. As the property owner, you have the responsibility of the duty to manage. This means that you need to have a survey conducted. The survey will locate any asbestos, determine its condition, and so provide guidance on the best way to manage the asbestos on your property.
