Safety precautions for asbestos

Would you break into your beautiful home without using your key 1st? Of course you wouldn’t? So why would you start knocking down walls, or drilling into ceilings, without first checking to see if there is asbestos containing materials that could be harmful to you and your family? You wouldn’t.

But the truth is, there are many Surrey homeowners who do just that. Before you do any kind of home renovations, contact a professional asbestos surveyor first.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some important steps that today’s homeowners should follow:

Planning An Extension – if you are planning a home extension, first check with your architect who should know or recommend a reputable asbestos surveyor. This should be done before any building work takes place.

Drilling Into Walls Or Ceilings – don’t drill into any unknown walls or ceilings without having a professional survey done first. Disturbing any potential asbestos containing materials can be harmful to your health and the health of your family and workers.

Roof Removal – before removing that old, corrugated roof off of your garage, make sure that it does not contain asbestos by getting a test or survey today.

Tile Removal – if you are considering removing your dated kitchen tiles, stop, get a test or a survey first to stay safe.

Ceiling Removal – Artex ceilings can be ugly, but removing them yourself can be dangerous. Some Artex ceiling contained asbestos which means getting an asbestos test or survey first is important.​

Fireplace Removal – did you know that many fireplaces used asbestos for panels for insulation? Not only that, the asbestos used was, in some cases, the deadliest the industry had to offer. Before removing your old fireplace, get a test or a survey done to ensure the safety and health of your family.

Demolition – if you are considering demolishing your property, be sure to get a survey before getting started. You could be doing damage to the environment and the health of your workers or family. There are no excuses for cutting corners, get a survey and protect yourself and others today!
