Asbestos Surveys In Harrow

One of the most diverse boroughs outside of London, there is lots to love about Harrow – with the period properties and historical features one of the overriding positives that come with living in and owning a property in the area. But with every period and older property, particularly those which were built prior to the 2000s, there come certain risks and things to be aware of, with the presence of asbestos one of the main ones which has become a sticking point in renovation work over the last couple of decades.
Prior to the 2000s, asbestos was a popular and commonly used substance in construction, providing insulation to pipework, roofs, and walls. Following its direct connection with a number of health issues and debilitating conditions, the substance was subsequently banned – however, for development across the UK and beyond the damage had already been done, and now homeowners are living with the repercussions of owning a property that’s lined with asbestos. For many homeowners, the presence of asbestos is unknown until they come to sell or complete renovation work – during which a survey will identify and highlight the material. Our job is to conduct those surveys on behalf of construction companies, buyers, sellers, and homeowners – giving you the insight into any asbestos in your home, and letting you know what steps to take to keep your family safe.
Asbestos Surveys In Essex

What is an asbestos survey?

Here at South East Asbestos Surveys, we offer two different types of survey – the first of which is a standard survey with recommendations based on the stability of the material, while the second is designed for renovation and demolition work and establishes the presence followed by the removal of asbestos.

While the first type of survey is called a management survey and can end with a variety of options based on your living situation and how the asbestos is contained within the property, the second type of survey can only be conducted on a vacant property due to the hazard of breaking asbestos up and removing it. The latter survey is also a requirement of any demolition or refurbishment work taking place on a property or building which was built prior to 2000.

You do not have to have any evidence that asbestos is present in order to book a survey. If your home was built before 2000 then that is all we need to know to book your tailored survey in.
