If you live or work in an older building, it’s important to get asbestos testing in Northwich. Till the late 1970s, asbestos was commonly used in domestic and commercial buildings. It was considered a “miracle” material. The reason for this is because it is highly durable, easily available and heat resistant. It is a non-conductor of electricity. Asbestos is easy to work with and can be moulded into any form. This material was used most as insulation, fire-proofing structures, false ceilings, duct insulation and more. Ironing boards were commonly covered with asbestos. It can also be found in heaters, water cisterns, roofs, automotive parts. Asbestos paints were used on walls and floors. Since it was used so extensively, little thought was given to its health hazards.
For your building in Northwich, asbestos testing is imperative if you’re undertaking demolition, repairs or renovations. When left undisturbed, asbestos doesn’t pose much harm. However, with ageing or damage, the fibres work loose. They enter the environment and then the respiratory system. This causes a variety of issues, ranging from allergies to life-threatening conditions. One of the most seen health issues is lung cancer and mesothelioma. Asbestos fibres are very fine and microscopic. They can clog your lungs and the body is unable to break them down or eliminate them.
