Asbestos it's hairy business!
Kusten Vorland today surveyed a premises infected with spiders potentially contaminated with asbestos fibres.
During a routine asbestos survey on a property in the Roath area of Cardiff; Kusten Vorland surveyors were faced with a scary situation. The property dating back to the 1800's is to undergo a full refurbishment this Spring to restore the 3 storey house to its former glory. Whilst investigating the attic area surveyor’s uncovered board suspected to contain asbestos used to house Spider carcasses.
The unusual find led to lead surveyor Katie Parsons-Young boycotting the survey and returning to the office. Katie said, "After watching the film Arachnophobia, I just can't go near them. I certainly wasn't expecting to find such big, hairy, scary creatures on my site today"
The spider shells will be analysed in a laboratory to determine their level of contamination, a course of action will then need to be decided. Katie continued "we have sampled some unusual items believed to contain asbestos, but this has to beat them all".
