Health Hazards of Asbestos

The health hazards of asbestos are substantial; exposure to asbestos can cause a variety of long-term illnesses, such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. Inhaling or ingesting any type of asbestos fibres can severely damage a person’s lungs, heart, and other organs. As such, it is essential that any asbestos-containing material be removed by our professionals who understand how to identify its presence in a building and safely remove it.

In The UK, residents have been affected both directly and indirectly by the presence of asbestos in their homes or workplace environment. Unfortunately, once exposed to this hazardous material, there is no cure for the resulting health problems.

But before anything can be removed you will need a survey to be completed on your property first.

There are two different types of surveys that can be completed on a property. These are the management survey and the refurbishment and demolition survey. The management survey its purpose is to locate the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy.

Then the refurbishment and demolition survey, this one needs to be completed before any work is started. The survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection as necessary to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment & demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances.
