Professional Asbestos Surveys in Basingstoke
If you suspect that there is asbestos on your property, you will need to have an asbestos survey carried out. However, you can’t hire just anyone to carry out this asbestos survey, as it needs to be handled by a qualified and experienced team. This is where we at Astech Environmental Ltd come in to help, as we are fully qualified asbestos specialists, and we can offer a range of asbestos surveys in Basingstoke.
We offer three types of asbestos surveys for our clients in Basingstoke, and these are:
If you believe there is asbestos on your property and you haven’t had any surveys carried out before, we will provide you with our standard asbestos survey. During this survey, we will inspect every area of your property where asbestos could be present, from spray coating and insulation board panels to bonded cement and more.
We will determine whether any asbestos is present on your property, and should we locate any, this will be marked down in our asbestos report. Our report will detail where the asbestos is located and what condition it is in, so we can provide expert advice as to the next steps.
Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
Our next option is a refurbishment and demolition survey, and this type of asbestos survey is used when you are planning construction or demolition work. These types of projects can be incredibly disruptive to the property and can lead to asbestos being damaged or disturbed, which is hazardous.
Before any work can proceed, you need this asbestos survey carried out to determine whether asbestos is in the property. These surveys are destructive by nature, as we have to get into every area of your property, so we only carry them out in empty properties. Our report will detail where asbestos is located, its condition, and how we plan on removing it.
Finally, we have a survey known as a reinspection survey. These are applied to properties where a previous asbestos survey has been carried out, and asbestos was located, but it wasn’t removed as it didn’t pose any danger. In these cases, you need to have the property regularly reinspected to ensure the asbestos remains in good condition and doesn’t pose a hazard.
We will regularly undertake these reinspection surveys for you, keeping an eye on any asbestos in your property. Our team can identify whether the asbestos is still safe to leave, and if not, we can advise you on the next steps.
