Asbestos Surveys In Islington

Islington is an area in North London which is recognised for its vibrant attractions, electric buildings, and its diverse community. Surveying both the main street and many side streets which leads towards Regents Park, through to East London and down towards the main city centre, Islington is packed full of townhouses, residential flats, and large buildings which have become part of the fabric of London through the ages. But with any historical building, private or commercial, there comes a need for regular surveys and a thorough understanding of the safety and stability of the building.

Here at South East Asbestos Surveys, our team operate across London and beyond – providing end-to-end services for those who live in or are surrounded by buildings which could contain one of the most dangerous materials to come from the construction world – asbestos.

Why are asbestos surveys in Islington necessary?

Offering both asbestos surveys and asbestos removal in Islington, our team are experts in identifying the presence of asbestos, isolating it, and assessing its structural stability to determine whether it needs to be removed or not. But why is this so important?

Once a common material used in the construction industry, it was not until the late 1990s that it was understood just how dangerous asbestos is when broken up and released as particles into the air. Causing debilitating and life threatening damage to those who breathe it in, asbestos was banned from use in all construction and building work in the 1990s – meaning that while new builds are safe from potential harm, any building constructed before 2000 requires an asbestos survey, culminating in ongoing management or a removal service.

What happens in an asbestos survey?

An asbestos survey involves an initial consultation, followed by a visit from our team. During this visit we will isolate all the asbestos present in the structure of your home or building, before assessing its stability. If the asbestos is found to be in good, stable condition then you will be presented with an ongoing management report. This will outline the need for future surveys and checks. Alternatively, if the asbestos is damaged or in danger of breaking up and releasing particles into the air, it will be progressed to our asbestos removal Islington service – whereby we will safely remove and dispose of the material in full. If you are undertaking renovation or demolition work, asbestos removal is a regulatory requirement as part of the preparation process. For more information on our asbestos surveys, our asbestos removal service in Islington, and to find out whether your property falls under the at-risk category in terms of buildings which are likely to contain asbestos, reach out to us directly.
