Asbestos Sampling and Testing, Surveys and Risk Assessment for your Property
Identifying Asbestos in your home or commercial property
Asbestos is a tricky problem for anybody to face. Whilst laws outlawing the carcinogen have now been implemented, it’s quite possible that any property constructed prior to the year 2000 will contain asbestos.
There is no way of identifying this yourself, as asbestos is invisible and unscented. Thankfully, the team at Advance Asbestos Removal are fully trained and qualified in testing and identifying asbestos in homes, garages and commercial properties.
Don’t lose sight of the fact that the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 demands that any commercial property must have a plan in place to manage possible asbestos. This is impossible to achieve without an initial survey, so if you are based in London or Surrey and require a free assessment, get in touch at your earliest convenience!
UKATA Certified – Sampling Testing and Analysis
Working within the legal guidelines assigned by HSE, Advance Asbestos Removal will complete a lengthy assessment of your property. We will take samples of the area and send them to an official laboratory for review under UKAS-approved circumstances. Not only will this test confirming whether you have asbestos in your property, but it will also confirm what kind – and how dangerous it may already be and could become.
Based on the findings, we will be able to offer advice as to how to proceed. Whether you are seeking assurance that you’re safe to begin a small project for yourself, or hoping for a full management plan to rid your property of asbestos, our team can meet your needs.
The first thing that we will confirm is whether any kind of work is actually necessary. Just because a property contains traces of asbestos it does not always necessitate removal. We will never undertake such a task if it is unnecessary to do so, and we will minimise expense and inconvenience to the customer wherever possible.
In some cases, the asbestos can simply be measured and observed. Following the advice of Advance Asbestos Removal, you will be able to keep the levels at a safe and low-risk level. Be assured – any bespoke plan devised for your property will be designed exclusively for you.
There are three primary forms of asbestos survey available to Advance Asbestos Removal customers. If you are unsure as to how to proceed, don’t hesitate to ask our friendly and professional team for advice.
Asbestos Management Surveys are a typical survey that will confirm the presence of any asbestos in your property. This survey will be able to shine a light on whether the asbestos is dangerous, and whether it is likely to cause health complications for residents. A management plan will be drawn up based upon the results of this survey, which will help you keep this asbestos problem under control – or remove it altogether.
Asbestos Re-inspection Surveys are required if your property has previously been found to contain asbestos. If a survey shows that this has previously been found in your building, it’s your responsibility to keep on top of the problem. Arranging a re-inspection once or twice a year will ensure that your property remains safe and legally compliant.
Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys are required if you plan to tear your property down and start anew, or even simply refurbish an existing shell. It will assess where there is any sign of asbestos to be found throughout a building, ensuring that it’s wholly thorough. Just be aware that this means that such a survey can be intrusive in pursuit of such substantial results.
Whether you are already aware that your property contains asbestos or are keen to find out, Advance Asbestos Removal are waiting to assist you. A full and comprehensive survey from a qualified and accredited professional is only a phone call away. There will be no pressure or obligation to proceed following the results, and your safety is our number one priority. We can guarantee a professional service with minimal disruption and full legal compliance. If you need more information, just contact us for a consultation.
