If you are planning to buy or sell a property in Hampshire or the South East England, it is essential to know that you are not at risk of asbestos exposure from the building's materials. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral used in building materials due to its exceptional resistance to heat, fire, and chemical damage. Unfortunately, asbestos is also a hazardous substance that can cause serious health problems, including asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
To protect yourself and your family from the health hazards of asbestos, it is crucial to conduct a professional asbestos survey before buying or selling a property. An asbestos survey is an inspection process that identifies the presence, type, and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in a building. Asbestos surveying is a critical management tool that helps property owners and managers to comply with the legal requirements and guidelines for asbestos management, refurbishment, and demolition in Hampshire and the UK.
Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire is a professional asbestos survey company in Hampshire. Our team of expert asbestos surveyors conducts various types of asbestos surveys to meet the specific needs of our clients. In this article, we will discuss the different types of asbestos surveys that we offer to our clients in Hampshire and the South East England.
There are two main types of asbestos surveys: Management Surveys and Refurbishment / Demolition Surveys. Below is a brief description of each survey and when it is appropriate to conduct.
A management survey is a non-intrusive, visual inspection of all accessible areas of a building to identify the presence, type, and condition of ACMs. Management surveys are typically conducted in buildings that are in regular use and likely to contain asbestos. The primary purpose of a management survey is to create an asbestos register and management plan that identifies the risk posed by ACMs and outlines procedures for their safe management and removal.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we conduct Management Surveys for clients who are responsible for maintaining or repairing non-domestic properties in Hampshire and the South East England. Examples of properties that require Management Surveys include offices, factories, warehouses, schools, hospitals, and retail units.
A refurbishment/demolition survey is an intrusive, destructive inspection of a property to identify the presence, type, and condition of ACMs that may be disturbed or damaged during the refurbishment or demolition works. A refurbishment/demolition survey is necessary when a building is due for major refurbishment, demolition, or significant alterations to the building layout or services. The purpose of a refurbishment/demolition survey is to ensure that all ACMs are identified, removed, and disposed of before any refurbishment or demolition works commence.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we conduct Refurbishment/Demolition Surveys for clients who are planning major refurbishment or demolition works on their properties in Hampshire and the South East England. Examples of properties that require Refurbishment/Demolition Surveys include factories, warehouses, hospitals, and residential properties that are due for major renovations.
After conducting an asbestos survey, we create an asbestos register and management plan that identifies the location, type, and condition of ACMs in the building. The asbestos management plan also includes procedures for managing and removing ACMs safely to prevent exposure to employees, contractors, and members of the public. The asbestos management plan is a critical document that enables property owners and managers to comply with the legal requirements for asbestos management and protect people from the health hazards of asbestos exposure.
