The use of asbestos is not new in many parts of the world as many real estate properties especially rental properties were constructed using this material. To prevent various problems like shocks and electrocutions that might result due to naked wires, asbestos are very useful in the electrical and building insulation during the construction activities. The major reasons why asbestos containing materials are highly used during building constructions is so as to prevent electrical fires.
The usage of the asbestos containing materials has facilitated the asbestos surveys as a way of finding all accessible asbestos containing materials. Asbestos surveys are also helpful in determining and recording the condition of the asbestos containing materials used in the building’s electrical insulation.
Asbestos surveys also greatly help to create the right plan for managing all the risks that might come up with the asbestos containing materials.
The other reason why asbestos surveys are performed is so as to advise those involved in coming up with the management plans for the risks associated with the asbestos containing materials. As an owner of any building, it is important to ensure that asbestos survey is performed as a way of easily getting permits from the local building departments. The release of the asbestos fibres into the air greatly results to so many health problems either the residents or workers in homes and commercial places respectively and thus the other reason why the asbestos surveys are very important in helping curb the release of the such materials during demolitions, renovations and remodeling activities.
Asbestos surveys come in several categories which are performed on different types of buildings for different commercial and home based activities. Some of the top types of asbestos surveys that can be performed on your building are discussed below. The first type of asbestos surveys is the asbestos screening. Asbestos screening is a great survey that can be done to prevent various risks that might come with the repairs of damaged materials through prevention of asbestos fibre release into the environment. Asbestos screening is meant to assess asbestos containing materials through getting samples for analysis.
For the sampling of different asbestos containing materials in your place, the asbestos containing materials are very crucial. Path of construction also known as pre-renovation asbestos survey is also a common type of asbestos survey which is done exactly to the building on construction or on the materials used for building. During the deconstruction of your building, it is vital to have parts of your home assessed through pre-demolition asbestos survey.
