Asbestos Survey In Westerham

Asbestos can cause serious health problems if not properly managed or removed, with exposure to its microscopic fibres potentially leading to severe lung conditions and cancers. Therefore, if you do suspect the presence of asbestos within your property, it’s vital that you get a survey carried out as soon as possible.

At South East Asbestos Surveys, we’re on hand to conduct an asbestos survey in Westerham that’s fully tailored to your requirements. Whether your building is residential, commercial or industrial in nature, you can rest assured that we have the expertise and equipment needed to perform a thorough examination to identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACM), helping safeguard the health and well-being of your property’s occupants.

Do I need an asbestos survey?

Once a commonly used construction material as a result of its durability and heat resistance, asbestos was banned in the UK in late 1999 due to the significant health risks it poses if disturbed. Unfortunately, many buildings constructed before this time may still contain this asbestos, making a survey essential in many cases.

If your property was constructed before the ban and you suspect asbestos could be present, get in touch with us to arrange asbestos testing in Westerham. Having an asbestos survey performed is even more urgent if you’re planning any renovations, refurbishments, or demolition work carried out. Disturbing asbestos-containing materials during these activities can release harmful fibres into the air.

What does an asbestos survey involve?

An asbestos survey involves a thorough inspection of a property to identify and manage any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). There are two primary types of asbestos surveys:

  • Management survey. This type of asbestos survey aims to identify and assess areas of asbestos that could be disturbed or damaged. We’ll carefully inspect the asbestos and take samples, if necessary, before sending it to be analysed in the laboratory.
  • Refurbishment/demolition survey. The HSE requires this type of asbestos survey to be carried out before major refurbishment or demolition work takes place. This survey is very comprehensive, which means you can be certain that it will identify all ACMs in the building. Our surveyors will access concealed areas to check for the presence of asbestos.

Before we carry out an asbestos survey in Westerham, we’ll arrange an initial consultation to allow us to understand more about the property’s history and its construction materials and find out if any asbestos-related work has been conducted previously. Once we have all this information, we’ll perform a visual inspection of the property, examining its walls, ceiling, and floors for areas of asbestos. If necessary, we will collect samples of suspected ACMs so that they can be analysed in the laboratory to confirm the presence of asbestos. We can then provide a comprehensive report outlining the type, location, condition, and risk level of the asbestos, as well as offering recommendations on its management or removal.
