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. Asbestos is very important during the electrical installation in a new building or a building under construction and hence highly preferred during the construction process. 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.
Poorly installed asbestos containing materials can lead so many risks like fire outbreaks due to excess electric current and hence the other reason why asbestos surveys have been so much popular in preventing all the risks that come with poorly installed asbestos containing materials through implementation of the right management plans.
Those involved in writing management plans for the prevention of the risks associated with the asbestos containing materials also require advice and guidance on how to come up with the right plans which is also another reason for the performance of the asbestos surveys. It is important to note that asbestos surveys are legal activities where the local building departments only issue building permits after the asbestos surveys are completed. 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.
It is crucial to understand some of the top types of asbestos surveys that are recommended to the owners of different residential and commercial buildings. The following is a discussion about the different types of asbestos surveys that you can have performed on your building. The first type of asbestos surveys is the asbestos screening. During various repairs like renovations and remodels, there is a likelihood of contaminants from asbestos being released into the environment therefore causing a lot of health issues to the occupants and thus the reason why asbestos screening is very important. Asbestos screening does the analysis of different asbestos samples in areas with damaged buildings.
The other type of asbestos surveys are the limited asbestos surveys for sampling building materials and different asbestos containing materials. 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.
