Asbestos Survey in Gillingham

Once a popular construction material due to its durability and heat resistance, asbestos is now banned in the UK. Asbestos poses serious health risks if disturbed and its fibres are inhaled, potentially causing severe lung diseases and cancers. If your property was constructed before the late 1990s, there’s a chance that it might contain asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

At South East Asbestos Surveys, we can carry out a detailed asbestos survey in Gillingham, allowing us to identify and manage any asbestos that may be present. This is vital for ensuring the safety of occupants and for complying with legal obligations concerning asbestos management and removal.

What is an asbestos survey?

An asbestos survey is carried out to identify, locate and assess asbestos within a property. This comprehensive examination involves inspecting various areas and materials which are likely to contain asbestos. Our surveyors will assess the condition of identified ACMs and provide recommendations for their management or removal.

Asbestos can sometimes be left where it is if it’s in good condition, undisturbed, and unlikely to be damaged. However, in situations where it could be disturbed or damaged, for example, in the event of renovation or demolition work, removal is likely to be the best course of action.


Types of asbestos surveys

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

  • Asbestos management survey. This survey assesses the presence and stability of any asbestos present within the building.
  • Refurbishment/demolition survey. This type of survey is required by HSE regulations before any type of destructive work begins on an older property.

At South East Asbestos Surveys, we have been performing asbestos testing in Gillingham for many years, carrying out comprehensive surveys for many residential, commercial and industrial buildings throughout the area. With vast experience across every property type, we can identify even the smallest traces of asbestos, ensuring thorough assessments. We’ll provide a detailed report that will include tailored recommendations for managing asbestos-containing materials on your property, whether it’s for routine management or prior to renovation or demolition work being carried out.
