Asbestos In Insulation

Asbestos can be found in insulation which can then be inside of your industrial, commercial or residential property. To ensure that you don’t have asbestos on your premises you must do a survey. One of our team members can undergo this survey as it is a key stage in managing asbestos. The survey will help to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. You can find asbestos in insulation in almost any building that had been refurbished or built in the time when asbestos was used.

This is between the years 1950 and 1980. When our team survey’s your premises it will be a management survey or a refurbishment & demolition. WIth the management survey its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. This also includes foreseeable maintenance and installation. The refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. The survey will be used to locate and describe all of the ACMs in the area of the refurbishment work or in the whole building if demolition is planned.

It is so important to get all of the Asbestos out of your building because it claims 4500 lives each year because it can cause four diseases when you are exposed to asbestos. These diseases are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening.
