It’s time to take health and safety into your own hands, with an asbestos survey in Kensington.
An area of central London which is celebrated and renowned for its high end boutiques and stunning examples of traditional and modern architecture, Kensington is an area rife with old period properties and structures which have withstood the test of time, changing styles, and interior upheaval. But one area that may not have fared so well is the insulation – most notably the presence of asbestos, which as a recognised harmful material could well be putting your health and safety at risk.
The fact is, over time asbestos weakens and starts to break down – and it is at this stage that it becomes hazardous, dangerous, and potentially life threatening. When asbestos breaks down, particles of the substance are released into the air – leading to respiratory illnesses and issues for those who breathe it in. Since these findings were realised, asbestos has become banned across all construction industries. But for those properties that were built prior to the ban coming into effect, the risk remains high – and that’s where our asbestos surveys come in.
If your home was built prior to 2000, or you own a property which you believe may contain or have been constructed with asbestos, read on because here’s everything you need to know.
