Asbestos Survey

Save on an asbestos survey with our free quotes

If you think there might be asbestos either in your home or work premises, you may benefit from a professional survey. An asbestos survey guarantees no nasty surprises, especially if you are about to purchase new premises. Asbestos is now banned in several countries around the world, but many older buildings still contain asbestos materials, putting you and your family at potential risk.

Asbestos surveys are conducted by specialists to locate the suspect material, to determine the quantity and condition of the material as well as to identify the precise type of asbestos. Samples may be taken for further laboratory testing. A professional asbestos survey is essential if you want to safely remove any hazardous materials. Need a survey but not sure where to start? We can put you in touch with the best professionals.

If you suspect an asbestos-containing material may be damaged and releasing fibres, you need to call the asbestos survey professionals today.

Survey and Risk Assessment

An asbestos survey is critical to understanding the extent of the problem and risk to your health posed by the presence of asbestos. Asbestos is usually found in insulation materials in the ceiling and around hot water pipes. These locations may also be prone to damage, and disturbed asbestos material can be very dangerous. Not all asbestos materials pose a risk to dwellers or workers, especially if the material is intact and undisturbed. In these cases it is better to leave the asbestos as it is.

Asbestos Removal and Disposal

Since asbestos is considered a hazardous material, no DIY attempt should be made to remove or destroy the material. Asbestos survey professionals will create a management plan customised to your needs, detailing the best procedures for handling the asbestos in your building. Asbestos removal is usually conducted by a specialist in a safety suit. You may be asked to vacate the premises during removal for your own safety.

Asbestos and Property Value

Asbestos was commonly used in the 20th Century in insulation materials, cement and even vinyl flooring. If your home still contains these materials, your property value may be negatively affected, especially if the materials have been damaged and patched or repaired. Intact asbestos materials that have been deemed safe by professionals should not negatively impact your property value. For health and safety's sake, avoid using asbestos materials whenever possible, and replace old insulation with asbestos-free materials.

What is an asbestos survey?

An Asbestos survey is when a professional inspects a property to determine if it has asbestos fibers present. A test may be performed and then a written report is created to detail the findings.

Do I need a survey?

If your home was built before the 1980's and you suspect that there may be asbestos present, you should probably get a survey done. This will tell you whether asbestos fibers are present and help you prepare for the next step, which is removal.
