An asbestos survey in Delamere is an essential first step before any renovation work can happen on your building. This is doubly true if you are planning on demolishing your building. Most buildings constructed before 2000 have asbestos in one form or another within their structure. This is because asbestos was widely used as a ‘wonder’ product in the past. There are many excellent properties when using asbestos as an additive to building materials. Asbestos can be found in a great many parts of your building. The problem is that exposure to asbestos results in incurable disease and cancer. When asbestos ages, it becomes friable. This results in it releasing its microscopic fibres into the environment. When swallowed or inhaled, they lodge in the soft tissue of the body. The body cannot expel these fibres and they then cause deadly illness.
As most old buildings were constructed with this ‘wonder’ material, most buildings pose a health and safety risk. This is why, in Delamere, an asbestos survey is essential before planning any remodelling or renovation work. It is also mandatory and should be completed by a professional asbestos surveyor. The survey will indicate where any asbestos-containing materials are in the building as well as their condition. The information gathered from the survey is used to prepare an asbestos management plan. It is the responsibility of the owner, or manager of a building to have a suitable management plan in place if there are any asbestos-containing materials present. The survey will also detail the best recommendations. This would include the testing of the material and whether it should be removed and disposed of.
