If asbestos is found in the property but it is considered to be low risk – stable and intact – then you may be given an asbestos management plan which outlines the need for regular monitoring by a professional, and lets you know exactly what is present and where. All of our surveys are conducted to a high standard, in line with HSE regulations, and are completed by our team of professionals.
When intact and undamaged, asbestos is a relatively harmless substance. Once a core construction tool used in insulation and in building out walls and roofing structures among other parts of the building trade, once the health hazards of asbestos were discovered it was banned from the construction industry in the 1990s.
Since then, asbestos surveys have become a regular part of homeownership – with the main aim being to isolate any of the substance and identify if it is causing a problem to the air surrounding it. If it is, and the results are considered potentially harmful, we will proceed with a full removal service.
