Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in construction and manufacturing industries for many years. However, it was later discovered that asbestos caused various health hazards such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. As a result, it is crucial to ensure that any property built before the year 2000 is thoroughly checked for asbestos.

An Asbestos Survey is an inspection carried out in a building or property to identify if it contains asbestos or any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). The survey is crucial because asbestos cannot be detected through visual inspection alone. It takes specialised tools, testing, and sampling to identify asbestos-containing materials. The survey also highlights the condition of the asbestos and the potential risk it poses to the occupants of the building.
There are two types of Asbestos Surveys that Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire offers, and they are:
The management survey is a less intrusive survey designed to locate the presence, extent, and potential risk of asbestos-containing materials in a building. The survey involves taking samples of suspected asbestos-containing materials and quantifying the level of risk posed by the asbestos-containing material.
The result of the management survey is a detailed record of the location, condition, and type of ACMs identified within the property. The record is then used to establish an effective management plan for the asbestos-containing materials.
The Refurbishment and Demolition asbestos survey is a more intrusive survey carried out in preparation for refurbishment or demolition works. The survey is designed to locate and identify asbestos-containing materials that could be disturbed during the planned works.
The survey involves sampling and testing suspected materials for asbestos, and the report includes details on location, condition, and extent of the ACMs. The report is used to prepare a suitable plan of work, including safe methods of removing the ACMs.
The presence of asbestos in a property poses a significant health risk to the occupants. When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed, they release harmful fibers that can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. This is why an Asbestos Survey is critical before any refurbishment, demolition or management activity is carried out.
Furthermore, it is also essential to ensure that the survey is conducted by a reputable and professional company like Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire. Our team of experts is well trained, experienced and equipped to handle any asbestos-related issues in your property safely.
There is no standard price for an asbestos survey, as the cost depends on the type of survey, the size of the property, and the complexity of the work to be done. However, at Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer some of the most competitive prices in Hampshire while ensuring high-quality services. Typically, our surveys cost between 150 to 500, including VAT. The cost of the survey is an investment in the safety of the occupants of the building, and should not be ignored.
In conclusion, Asbestos Surveys are an essential part of any building or property management, refurbishment or demolition project. It is crucial to identify if your property contains asbestos and to have a reliable management plan in place. At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer excellent Asbestos Survey services that are affordable, reliable, and of the highest quality.
