An asbestos survey in Chester is necessary prior to any renovation work or demolition of a commercial building. The reason for this is that asbestos is still present in many parts of a building. Asbestos was extensively used as an addition to most types of building material in the past. There were a large number of good reasons for this, and as a result, many, if not all old buildings still contain asbestos in some form. The danger lies when the asbestos ages. Some types of asbestos become friable and, when disturbed, release their microscopic fibres into the air. These are inhaled and subsequently, cause incurable disease and cancer.
It is also a legal requirement. In Chester, an asbestos survey will help identify the location and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. This information can assist in preparing a thorough management plan – also a legal requirement. It is the duty holder’s responsibility to ensure that any asbestos-containing materials within the building are correctly, safely managed. It is also a prudent plan to use the services of an expert company for your building’s asbestos survey. As a company that deals with asbestos removal, we are the company to choose for a reliable and professional asbestos survey. Each member of our team has the experience, knowledge and skill to ensure a professional survey. Moreover, all the surveys we conduct are in accordance with the guidelines set out by the HSE.
An asbestos survey in Chester should be completed by a professional with the necessary experience and knowledge. We would be pleased to assist. In addition, we offer both the management survey and the refurb/demo survey. Both of which are essential to ensure the safety of the building for the occupants. The management survey will locate any asbestos-containing material that is likely to be disturbed or damaged during normal occupation of the building. This would include any routine maintenance scheduled. The refurb/demo survey is a more invasive and intensive survey. The building will need to be vacated before this survey can begin.
