purpose of asbestos survey

What is the purpose of an Asbestos survey?

A survey is undertaken to determine, so far as it is reasonably practical, the full extent of asbestos-containing materials within a building and then detail the product type, condition, surface treatment, asbestos type and extent.

How is an asbestos survey carried out?

Our asbestos surveyors conduct a thorough inspection of the property taking photographs, samples of any potential asbestos-containing materials.

What is needed from me?

All we will need is access to all areas of the property and permission from the duty holder i.e. the person or organisation that has clear responsibility for the maintenance or repair of the property.

Will I have to close my business/leave my house?

If the survey is a management survey it is non-intrusive to the fabric of the building so residents should be quite safe, if this appears not to be the case our asbestos surveyors will inform you.

With pre-refurbishment and demolition asbestos surveys the properties need to be vacant as major refurbishment or demolition works is taking place. These fully intrusive surveys, damage the fabric of the property while enabling our surveyors to locate all asbestos containing materials, so far as it is reasonably practical.

What is included in the survey?

The surveys are structured so that they are easy to understand and emailed to clients in a PDF format. The survey will include detailed findings including photographs of sampled and suspect asbestos-containing materials, property plans, material risk assessment and recommendations for managing or removing asbestos-containing materials.

What happens next?

The survey will contain recommendations depending on the findings. We are also known as a highly efficient and reliable asbestos removal company, with highly trained operatives who, should you require removal, will complete the job safely, efficiently and with the minimum of disruption.

Are you fully regulated?
