What Is Asbestos?

You have probably heard of asbestos, but you might not be entirely sure what, exactly, asbestos is. Well, asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral and was widely used in construction until the late 90s. The fibres are resistant to heat, corrosion, and electricity, which is why it was a popular material in construction until it was deemed hazardous to health. 

These fibrous materials are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, and each one is comprised of microscopic fibrils. It is these microscopic fibrils that are released into the air when asbestos is disturbed, and it is these fibrils that make asbestos dangerous. 

Why Is Asbestos Dangerous?

As we mentioned above, asbestos was widely used in the construction industry until it was deemed hazardous to health in the late 90s. But why is asbestos dangerous? Well, it is the fibres that makeup asbestos that is dangerous, as they are hazardous to health.  

These fibres can become airborne when the asbestos is damaged or disturbed and, when inhaled, they can become lodged in lung tissue. Once lodged in lung tissue, they can damage your lungs and cause serious health issues, such as asbestos-related diseases from pleural thickening to asbestos-related cancer. 

Why You Need a Professional for an Asbestos Survey?

When you are planning to have an asbestos survey carried out, it is important that you work with a professional company. Because asbestos is such a hazardous material, it needs to be handled with care and safety, which only a professional company can ensure. 

A professional company will know exactly what to look out for when carrying out an asbestos survey, Surrey residents. They will be able to identify any type of asbestos on the property and ensure it is recorded correctly. Plus, a professional company will then be able to offer expert advice as to the best management method for asbestos.

Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys

One of the asbestos surveys we offer our clients in Surrey is the refurbishment and demolition survey. This is a specific type of survey that we offer for those who are planning for work to be carried out on their property. 

Refurbishment or demolition work is destructive and can cause asbestos-containing materials to be damaged or disturbed, which can be hazardous. With this asbestos survey, we can identify whether the property has any asbestos-containing materials present and, if so, where they are located. These can then be removed before work is carried out. 

These surveys are destructive, as we need to be thorough with our search. As such, we only carry these asbestos surveys out in unoccupied properties.

What Are the Steps of Asbestos Management?

Here at Astech Environmental Ltd, we don’t just offer asbestos surveys in Surrey. We also offer a full asbestos management service, ensuring any asbestos in your property is handled safely from start to finish.  

An asbestos management service consists of multiple steps, starting with the asbestos survey to identify any asbestos-containing materials. We then complete the management service with two other asbestos services, sample analysis, and asbestos removal. You can find out more about these steps below. 

Asbestos Removal

One of the steps in our asbestos management service is asbestos removal. Once the survey has been completed, we can advise you on the best method for managing the asbestos in your property. This can either be full removal or encapsulation, where a protective layer is installed over the ACM to protect it from damage. In many cases, however, the best method is asbestos removal. 

We work within all guidelines and regulations when carrying out asbestos removal, ensuring the asbestos-containing materials are handled correctly and safely. We carry out full asbestos removal for our clients and handle all the legal paperwork and certifications too, showing you are compliant with all regulations.  

Once we have removed the asbestos from your property, we will ensure that it is disposed of correctly. 

Asbestos Sample Analysis

Another service we offer within our asbestos management service is asbestos sample analysis. This is a process carried out before asbestos removal, and it can be a highly important step in the process.  

Asbestos sample analysis involves taking samples of the asbestos found in your property with the aim of identifying the exact type. There are three types of asbestos commonly found in the UK – Chrysotile (white), Amosite (brown), and Crocidolite (blue). By identifying the exact type of asbestos, we can determine the best method for managing it, whether that be removal or encapsulation.
