Asbestos Surveys

When you instruct Asbestos 365 to conduct your asbestos surveys, we will advise you on the type of survey that is required, whether it may be a commercial asbestos survey or for a residential property.

A normal asbestos survey will usually involve testing relevant materials to detect the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).

It is not always necessary to carry out a full asbestos survey, if you already have an asbestos survey or you are only working on one area an asbestos test might be more suitable where we just take a quick bulk sample.

Our staff are highly experienced at testing and presuming the presence of ACMs and will thoroughly test all materials which may be a potential risk of releasing airborne fibres.

Do you need an Asbestos Survey?

Your asbestos survey will usually involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or absence of ACMs.

However, an asbestos management survey can also involve presuming the presence or absence of asbestos. A survey can be completed using a combination of sampling ACMs and presuming ACMs or, indeed, just presuming. Any materials presumed to contain asbestos must also have their condition assessed (i.e. a material assessment).

Do you suspect asbestos is present on your property?

We can be onsite within hours with an interim recommendation of what type of asbestos survey is required and what course of action might need to be taken.

Asbestos Surveys FAQs

Asbestos surveying is basically the process of inspecting your property or building for the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

The use of asbestos in the construction industry was prevalent until 1999, when its health and safety risks caused it to be prohibited. Asbestos can still be found in many older buildings and homes across the UK that were constructed before this date.

As an asbestos surveying company, our job is to identify, inspect and document any ACMs within the building to ensure that they are managed and/or removed safely.

An asbestos surveying company, such as Asbestos 365, is responsible for identifying and managing any asbestos within a property or area.

Asbestos surveying involves inspection, identification, location and condition recording of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs), and provision of advice on safe management. It can additionally involve the removal and disposal of ACMs.

Asbestos surveyors are highly trained professionals who understand the risks associated with asbestos and have the knowledge, skills and experience to carry out comprehensive surveys. Surveys can be carried out in residential, commercial or industrial properties.

Asbestos surveyors must be qualified to carry out surveys and should be accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) or other recognised bodies. This ensures that the surveyor has the necessary skills and experience to assess any building correctly, identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) present and advise on their safe management.

An asbestos survey is a detailed inspection conducted on a property to identify the presence and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). In the UK, it’s necessary for compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. This survey is crucial for ensuring the safety of occupants by assessing any potential asbestos risks, especially before any renovation or demolition work.

Conducting an asbestos survey provides several key benefits:

  1. Compliance with Legal Requirements: It ensures you comply with UK health and safety laws, avoiding legal penalties.
  2. Health Protection: It identifies asbestos risks, protecting occupants from potential health hazards.
  3. Property Value: Knowing a property is asbestos-free or properly managed can enhance its market value.
  4. Planning and Budgeting: It aids in planning for safe removal, if necessary, and helps in budgeting for potential asbestos management or removal costs.

In the UK, there are mainly two types of asbestos surveys:

  1. Management Survey: This is a standard survey intended to locate the presence of asbestos in a building, typically required during the normal occupation and use of the building.
  2. Refurbishment/Demolition Survey: Required before any refurbishment or demolition work, this survey is more intrusive and aims to locate all ACMs so they can be removed.

The duration of an asbestos survey varies depending on the size and complexity of the property, as well as the type of survey conducted. A typical management survey for a small property may take a few hours, while a more comprehensive refurbishment/demolition survey for a larger site could take several days.

The level of disruption depends on the type of survey. A management survey is usually non-intrusive and causes minimal disruption.

However, a refurbishment/demolition survey can be more disruptive, as it may require access to all areas and involve intrusive work. Surveyors typically work to minimise disruption and can schedule surveys at convenient times.
