Home/Asbestos Surveys/Asbestos Surveys Essex

Operating across the towns, cityscapes, and rural countryside of Essex, our team are on the hunt for residential and commercial properties where asbestos could be lurking – offering a range of asbestos surveys in Essex to precede removal or determine the best plan for management or remediation.

While asbestos has been banned from importation and use in the UK since the 1990’s, any property or building which was constructed before 2000 may have asbestos present as an insulator. Additional uses for asbestos once encompassed car brakes and floor tiles, pipe insulators, roofing sheets, and ship panels, with the material now banned for its links to increased risk of cancer and other debilitating health concerns.

But how can you know whether or not your home or commercial property requires an asbestos survey?

Knowing when you need an asbestos survey

Asbestos does not have to be a confirmed presence for us to conduct a survey – with our job being to identify, locate, and then test any traces of asbestos to establish the stability of the material and the risk it poses to inhabitants and users of the property or site.

It is now a legal requirement for commercial properties built before 2000 to have an asbestos register survey in place, which indicates that the property has been checked and is being reviewed on an annual basis. For residential properties, it is advised that buyers now have a survey conducted on the property if it was built before 2000, as well as ongoing checks to ensure that any existing asbestos remains untouched and undamaged (as it is only the broken fibres of asbestos which are harmful when breathed in).

Homeowners and property managers will also need to complete an asbestos survey prior to any demolition or renovation work being carried out on an older property – with our asbestos survey team in Essex able to complete a refurbishment/demolition survey with comprehensive advice regarding asbestos removal or management and remediation.

Every survey produces different results, and it is advised that you get in touch with any questions or concerns about the process and the safety measures in your own home or property in Essex.

Do I need an asbestos survey?

There are two main types of survey that most properties and buildings will require:

  1. Asbestos management survey – to establish the presence and stability of any asbestos.
  2. Refurbishment/demolition survey – required by HSE regulations before any destructive work commences on an older property.

Our asbestos surveys in Essex culminate in a comprehensive report which outlines the ongoing plan for management, whether that be annual asbestos review surveys or asbestos removal. With experience across every property and building type, from identifying trace levels of asbestos to full sheets of the material, we work closely with laboratories as well as educational facilities to ensure that awareness is raised around the danger of asbestos when it’s left unmanaged.
