Asbestos was once a popular building material due to its fire-resistant properties and durability. However, it was later discovered that asbestos exposure can lead to serious health issues such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Since then, the use of asbestos has been strictly controlled and regulated, but many older buildings still contain asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). As a result, it is important to determine whether your property contains asbestos and, if so, how to manage it safely. This is where an asbestos survey comes in. In this article, we will discuss why you may need an asbestos survey in Hampshire and how Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire can help.
An asbestos survey is a thorough inspection of a property to identify whether there are any ACMs present. These surveys are conducted by trained professionals who know how to identify and manage asbestos safely. There are two main types of asbestos surveys: management surveys and refurbishment/demolition surveys.
Management surveys are intended to locate the presence and extent of ACMs in premises which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition. This type of survey is often referred to as a 'standard survey.' The purpose is to manage ACMs during the normal use and occupation of premises.
Refurbishment/demolition surveys are required where the premises, or part of it, need upgrading, refurbishment, or demolition. The survey does not need a record of the ACMs condition. Refurbishment/Demolition surveys must be made before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out.
