Asbestos has caused many problems with the health of people and an asbestos survey in Burnley is there to test for and remove asbestos while at the same time ensuring that fibres aren’t released into the air. While the use of asbestos as an additive to building materials for many years, we can be thankful that asbestos was banned in 1999. Older buildings were constructed using asbestos-containing materials. Unfortunately, the effects of exposure to asbestos became apparent and it was subsequently banned. Many thousands of people have succumbed to the effects of inhaling asbestos, some of whom are battling with cancer. You should never try to remove asbestos yourself but rather get in the services of professional asbestos removers who will skilfully test, survey and remove the asbestos.
Asbestos is often mixed with building materials and it can be difficult identifying it without a professional survey and testing. In Burnley, an asbestos survey is a means of identifying potential problem areas and proposing a management solution. Asbestos surveys are required by law, especially on older buildings in the UK. Our surveyors will look for all asbestos materials and then record their findings. Most buildings built before 2000 are going to need an asbestos survey. If asbestos is disturbed, tiny fibres are released into the air and these can get trapped in the lungs, and the result is serious health problems such as lung damage, disease such as Asbestosis and cancer. Our team is highly skilled and experienced and will source any asbestos-containing materials in your building. They will also recommend the best course of action.
