Asbestos was widely used in the construction industry during the 20th century as a durable, heat-resistant and non-flammable material. However, it was later found that exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious health problems, such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. As a result, asbestos has been banned in the UK since 1999, and any building built before this time may contain asbestos.
If you are planning a refurbishment or demolition project in Hampshire, it's essential to get an asbestos refurbishment survey to identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and prevent exposure to harmful asbestos fibers. At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer professional and affordable asbestos refurbishment surveys in Hampshire and the South East of England. In this article, we'll explain how our asbestos surveys work and why they are necessary.
An asbestos refurbishment survey is a type of asbestos survey that aims to identify all asbestos-containing materials in a building that may be affected by refurbishment, demolition or maintenance works. The survey is mandatory under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, and it must be carried out by a competent and accredited asbestos survey company, such as Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire.
The survey involves a thorough inspection of the property, including all accessible areas such as ceilings, walls, floors, and services. The surveyor will take samples of suspicious materials, which will be sent to a UKAS-accredited laboratory for analysis. The survey report will then provide a detailed description of the location, extent, and condition of asbestos-containing materials, as well as recommendations for their safe removal and management.
