Inhaling significant amounts of asbestos can cause many serious health issues including lung damage and cancer. That's why, by law, you are required to plan an asbestos survey on any commercial building over 8 years old. There are many professional asbestos survey and asbestos diagnosis companies in the UK who can conduct asbestos investigations on your property. As asbestos experts, they know how to locate, handle and remove potentially harmful asbestos safely. Never attempt to remove asbestos yourself.
