Many buildings in Leicester were built before the 1980s. This was the period when asbestos was still used as a building material. It was eventually banned in 1985, but many old buildings still contain elements of the material. Because of this fact, it essential that you carry out surveys, tests, and management process to remove the element from your property.
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a heat-resistance fibrous silicate mineral that occurs naturally. It is made up of microfibres that can be easily airborne, and they can pose a great health hazard when inhaled for a long time. Yet, this material is used in the construction industry, causing thousands of illnesses every year.
High levels of exposure to the microfibres can lead to lung disease, and prolonged exposure can lead to lung cancer. Awareness of this material is an integral part of consumer education since most people are not even aware that it is present in their houses. To make it worse, many people don’t know the levels of this dangerous element that they are exposed to on a day-to-day basis.
An asbestos survey is a risk assessment technique that involves the sampling and the laboratory analysis of sample materials from your property in Leicester. Our professional team will take their time inspecting all corners of the house in order to gather adequate samples for the tests. Such a survey is done to determine the presence or absence of the asbestos-containing materials in your building.
The tests entail the evaluation of the levels of this dangerous material in your atmosphere. Our professionals will also analyse the danger it poses and its effects on the people around the environment. Prolonged exposure to asbestos-contaminated air brings about lung complications, and it can eventually lead to the development of lung cancer.
Management of Asbestos-Containing Elements
If the asbestos surveys are conducted at your Leicester based property and the tests come back positive, we then commence the management process. This process will be handled by highly trained personnel.
In addition to the essential services above, we also offer air monitoring, bulk sampling, compliance and project management, follow up or regular checkups and compliance checks.
