Amianto Offers Asbestos Testing in Welwyn
There’s probably a few readers of this blog who remember when smoking was considered a great way to kill germs back in the 1950s. Doctors and nurses regularly smoked whilst treating patients, and some midwives even advocated smoking whilst delivering babies!
Now we know better, but we’re still living with the legacy of those misguided beliefs. Asbestos has a similar history to tobacco; until the 1930s it was seen as a miracle of nature providing a natural insulating material, that was fire resistant and absorbed sound. It took 60 years to finally prove the dangers of asbestos fibres when inhaled, and by then it was ‘hard wired’ into properties across the UK.

Refurbishment and demolition survey – any scheduled demolition or refurbishment work must be preceded by asbestos testing to determine whether the building work is likely to disturb inert asbestos matter, creating an environmental hazard.
