If you’re living in a home that was built before the year 2000, then you may need to have an asbestos survey carried out. Without doing so, you’re putting yourself at risk from harmful fibres that cause severe health risks, and in the worst case, death. Having a survey completed by a professional team will ensure that all disrupted materials containing asbestos are tended to correctly. Such a survey doesn’t take long and will give you peace of mind.
Asbestos surveys are, in fact, a legal requirement for non-domestic property owners and building managers. Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 states that non-domestic property owners in the UK must carry out assessments of asbestos in their premises. Once completed, a written report must be presented to the government. Regulation 5 of the same legislation requires surveys to be carried out before any renovation work that might disturb asbestos is performed in the building.
At Astech Environmental Ltd, we can carry out a swift and thorough asbestos survey in your property that will help you to comply with regulations. Our team will identify any areas containing asbestos that has already disturbed or damaged, and make suggestions on what action should be taken. We take our time during these surveys to ensure that all areas of your building are checked thoroughly.
Our team can handle all aspects of any written report that needs to be submitted as part of our comprehensive service. We will compile a report filled with written and photographic evidence that is clear and concise. Our report will detail the amount of asbestos present in your property and identify any potential hazards that could be caused.
Once our survey has been completed, our team will recommend the best course of action for you to take going forward. We’re proud to offer a range of useful services for clients to take advantage of, including:
