    Default Bit of a panic

    Alright peeps I've got a bit of panic setting in as I've got home from work today and been told that we're having an asbestos survey done on the house on Friday. I live in a housing association house and it's having a new kitchen and bathroom fitted in a month or two (they didn't give an exact date). I assume that the survey is because they're going to be ripping the kitchen and bathroom to bits but I'm not sure if they're going to go in all the rooms in the house. My tent is in the bedroom and I really don't want to move it. Does anyone have any experience of this and know where they will be going? Also sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place

    Can you tell them someone is sick in bed when they come if they ask to go in there?

    This is kind of what I'm thinking. I might give em a bell tomorrow and ask where they're going in the house as I work nights and will be asleep in that room. I don't work nights but they don't know that.

    When they come answer the door and be like look guys Im fucked and been working all day and need a lie down so just give us a shout when your done.

    Id personally say I have my Mrs really ill in bed so please keep the noise down. If they say they need access then say sorry lads you will have to come back another time. Then you can plan what to do with the grow.

    Ideally I would but I can't think of any excuse that could delay them for that amount of time

    I live in the states so dunno if this helps. Asbestos is inert until disturbed and if youre going to do construction with it around you have to use vac tents. They are inspecting the areas they are going to disturb not the whole residence for construction.


    UNLESS: Your housing director got ahold of some tree hugger money to make the world safe. In that case he'll have every square foot of the building checked to increase the revamp funds. That doesn't sound like whats going on with you.

    Problem is I'll be at work when they come so the excuse of me being in bed will work better but she's shit at lying. Hopefully it's just a risk assessment on the kitchen and bathroom ????. I'll call em tomorrow and shit myself after if need be. Also double shit as I won't be able to do another grow until the house is sorted. FUCKING WANK

    Well the panic is over, the asbestos survey needed to be done in every room but the guy was told not to go in my room and he didn't. I seriously shit myself for a while and I'm now considering finishing the grow and knocking it on the head. I just can't take the stress of those situations.

    Asbestos check in a house you already live in?

    Feck me, Bundy, I'd be going down that route first mate.

    Doesn't sound right.

    My old Dad has asbestosis from the Merchant Navy 60 years ago, man, and it isn't pretty.

    You should definitely ask to see the asbestos report for your house and those around you, man...I absolutely hate this.

    I’d be telling them they won’t be doing a thing with asbestos while I live there.

    If it’s just a quick look and test then I’d be telling them my lass got shingles or something really contagious.
