An asbestos survey in Stoke is required by law if you are planning on demolishing or refurbishing your older building. The reason for this is that most old buildings, especially those constructed prior to the 1980s, have asbestos-containing materials within them. Asbestos was widely used as an additive to building materials for its many positive properties. It was later discovered that exposure to asbestos resulted in incurable disease and cancer. Asbestos, when it ages or is damaged, releases tiny fibres which are then inhaled by the occupants of the building. This then causes incurable disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
As the owner of the building, it is your responsibility to manage any asbestos present in your building. In Stoke, an asbestos survey is the first step in managing asbestos. A survey will indicate where any asbestos-containing materials are located in your building, particularly those that are likely to be disturbed or damaged during normal occupancy, as well as their condition. An asbestos survey will provide the means to prepare a comprehensive management plan, ensuring that both you and your building are compliant. This also means that the occupants in your building will be safe. As a highly professional company with a well-trained and experienced team, we can assist you with any asbestos related concerns.
