Asbestos Surveys London
Asbestos is a lethal material found in many buildings, particularly those built before the year 2000. Unfortunately, unless you conduct an asbestos survey, it is extremely difficult to detect and identify.
Asbestos surveys are critical for identifying potential asbestos risks and ensuring the health and safety of people living or working in a building.
We cover all of south, east, west and north London and the surrounding areas.

What Our Asbestos Surveys Include
It’s simple to determine the type of survey you require for your property in London; simply call Asbestos 365 at 01923 911 013 for assistance.
Asbestos surveys typically include testing of all relevant materials to detect the presence of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). It is not always necessary, however, to conduct a full asbestos survey at the given London location.
If your premises has already had an asbestos survey, or if you are only working on one area, it may be preferable to arrange for Asbestos 365 to take a rapid bulk sample.
Below, you will find the various types of asbestos surveys and related solutions that we provide to domestic and commercial clients in the London area.
What Areas of London Do You Cover?
We can cover the following areas as well as many other parts of London:

Types of Asbestos Surveys
Management and pre-purchase surveys are where we get most of our trade when it comes to asbestos surveying – they are the standard surveys we recommend for peace of mind when purchasing a property. Their purpose is to locate, as far as is practically possible, the presence and extent of asbestos.
The intrusiveness of these surveys varies depending on the type of property and the level of disruption that is reasonably practicable for that premises. The survey includes sampling and analysis to confirm the presence of ACMs. The assessment can also be done by assuming the presence or absence of asbestos.
When we finish your survey, you'll receive a report detailing everything we discovered within the building. This will also include a risk assessment of the ACMs' condition (if discovered) and their ability to release fibres into the air if disturbed.
If you suspect your property in London contains asbestos, you should consider a refurbishment or demolition survey. Before any planned works can begin, refurbishment and demolition surveys are used to determine the presence of ACMs.
Unlike a management or pre-purchase survey, this type of survey is completely intrusive and disruptive. It may even imply that the entire building's structure must be penetrated. This means that these surveys should only be carried out in unoccupied areas; we must ensure that no employees or members of the public are jeopardised.
If only minor refurbishment is required, only one room, or part of a room, may be included in the survey, but care will be taken to ensure that this area is completely isolated from the rest of the building. Before people can move back in, the surveyed area must be fit for reoccupation.
Want to save time and money when dealing with asbestos? Choose bulk testing and analysis for your London property. These are ideal for determining whether one of your property's products contains asbestos.
Rather than an invasive survey, samples are collected in an accredited laboratory by a team of experts in a controlled and safe environment. Following completion, sample points will be safely encapsulated and labelled with a location sticker, as appropriate. Using industry-leading techniques, bulk samples are examined for the presence and type of asbestos.
Our well-established and vastly experienced UKAS accredited laboratory can provide a quick service with results available within 24 hours.
A reinspection survey is the final type of survey we provide in the London area. This type of survey is especially useful if you're looking for a long-term asbestos management solution or if you've previously had asbestos on your property.
Regular reinspection surveys are ideal for staying on top of the asbestos threat, especially if they were recommended as part of an Asbestos Management Plan. They can be completed at regular intervals to check your London property for any identified or suspected ACMs.
