The Best Asbestos Surveyors Guildford Has Ever Seen

Asbestos is a name given to several naturally occurring fibrous minerals that have crystallised to form fibres. These fibres do not dissolve in water or evaporate and are resistant to heat, fire, and chemical and biological degradation. For this reason, asbestos was commonly used in building construction, among other uses, for many years.

But it’s harmful, too, so its use was discontinued. Yet, it remains in many buildings and, if disturbed, can be very dangerous if inhaled. To mitigate this threat, you need the best asbestos surveys and, possibly, asbestos removal in Guildford.

What are Asbestos Surveys?

An asbestos survey is a thorough inspection, usually carried out on properties built before 2000. This is because properties built after 2000 weren’t built with asbestos. During a survey, we root out asbestos-containing materials and then evaluate whether asbestos removal is needed. A written report is generated with photographic evidence, recommending a course of action.

Why You May Need an Asbestos Survey

If you live in a property built before 2000, asbestos might be present, Guildford customers. If asbestos fibres are released and inhaled, they can cause serious harm, resulting in one of several diseases, some of which can even be fatal. Surveys are a legal requirement for commercial properties and are recommended for domestic properties to protect all occupants. They’ll help you determine if asbestos removal is needed.

What Is the Process of An Asbestos Survey?

An asbestos survey involves one of our trained and certified team members inspecting the areas of your property where asbestos is likely to be found. They’ll identify any areas where asbestos-containing materials are located and determine whether these materials have been damaged or disturbed. If not, they’ll assess the likelihood of this happening.

They’ll then supply you with a report with photographic evidence and make recommendations on what the next steps should be. This includes asbestos removal.

What Happens After Your Asbestos Surveys?

Following an asbestos survey, Guildford customers, we’ll either suggest leaving the asbestos (if it’s likely to pose no threat), encapsulating it or removing it. Here are the services we can offer:

Other Services We Offer Such as Asbestos Removal

In addition to the services listed above, including asbestos removal, we offer other services, too, Guildford customers, which include refurbishment and demolition surveys and bacteria cleaning. You can read more about each of our services below or by calling our team.

Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys

If you’re planning a refurbishment or demolition, then it’s important you arrange an asbestos survey first. Any major works such as these will result in building materials being destroyed, releasing any asbestos fibres present. Even if the asbestos was previously of no concern, any building work would quickly change that, risking the safety of anyone involved, so asbestos removal may be required.

Asbestos Analysis

There are three types of asbestos:

  • Chrysotile (white)
  • Amosite (brown)
  • Crocidolite (blue)

The type of asbestos will determine whether encapsulation is possible or whether the asbestos must be removed outright. Asbestos analysis (asbestos testing) involves taking a sample of asbestos and sending it to a UKAS-accredited laboratory. Through a series of tests, our partner lab can quickly determine what type of asbestos we’re dealing with.

Asbestos Management Surveys

Asbestos management surveys differ slightly from regular surveys in that they are usually requested by a person that manages a building. Because of this, they are a legal requirement for any buildings built before 2000. For more details about asbestos management surveys and asbestos removal, contact our Guildford team today.

Bacteria Cleaning

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we began offering bacteria cleaning, and this is a service we continue to provide for COVID-related and non-COVID-related cases. Our team uses specialised chemicals and equipment to deliver excellent results, keeping your customers and team safe from harmful germs, Guildford customers.
