For many years, asbestos was used by builders to construct a variety of structures. However, it became apparent that the flexible fibres were in fact dangerous and could contribute to asbestos-related illnesses, and even death. Despite the fact that it is a handy building material, it is not used as frequently these days. In 1985 it was banned throughout the United Kingdom, but what’s to say that the material still isn’t present in your building? The health of building occupants could be at risk if you don’t take it upon yourself to contact a company for asbestos surveying in London and the surrounding areas. Here’s why you should hire a professional for the job.
Professionals Have the Right Tools for the Job
It’s not just as simple as detecting the hazardous material and removing it, because the way in which asbestos is removed will make a difference to how effective the job is. Being careless could be dangerous and might cause the fibres to spread to other areas. Personal protective equipment should be worn by everyone who conducts asbestos surveying in London and once the surveyor has located the problem, samples will be taken for testing.
Professionals Know How to Remove Asbestos Safely
Did you know that there is more than one type of asbestos out there? The type of asbestos that your property was built with must be assessed with asbestos surveying, so that this hazardous building material can be discarded in the safest way possible. This involves using special tools to eliminate any traces from the property and prevent contamination elsewhere in the process. Don’t risk hiring someone who doesn’t know what they are doing, because they could in fact make the problem worse. Hunt wisely for the safest services.
Professionals Can Protect Your Health
Imagine what would happen if somebody close to you died as a result of a mystery illness? Or picture this – you are a business owner and your company’s image becomes tarnished because someone working within your organisation has been struck down with an asbestos-related illness or disease? Remember that the fibres in asbestos are cancer-causing and so the longer you are exposed, the higher the chances of you (and other people living or working inside the building) developing cancer will be, not to mention other life-threatening problems.
