Asbestos Removal and Asbestos Surveys

Asbestos removal in schools

The majority of schools contain asbestos. Teachers consider that total removal is the safest option, whereas the Government consider that managing asbestos is the best system.  If asbestos is in a good condition and undamaged then an effective system of management can be effective. Increasing evidence is that a significant number of schools are not managing their asbestos effectively, and that in many cases the asbestos is not in good condition. Much of it is hidden and a normal asbestos survey will not identify the fact that fibres are being given off, only comprehensive air-testing can determine that.
