If you are a homeowner or property manager in Hampshire, it is important to be aware of the dangers of asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was once commonly used in building materials because of its strength, durability, and resistance to fire. However, it is now known to cause serious health problems, including cancer and respiratory diseases. As such, it is crucial to have your property tested for asbestos if it was built before the year 2000.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we are a trusted asbestos testing company in Hampshire. With years of experience, we have the expertise and knowledge to provide comprehensive asbestos surveys that can identify if any asbestos-containing materials are present in your property. In this article, we will cover the cost of home asbestos testing in Hampshire, as well as everything else you need to know about asbestos surveys.
An asbestos survey is a detailed inspection of a property to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and assess their condition. There are two types of asbestos survey: management survey and refurbishment/demolition survey.
A management survey is designed to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in a building. They are usually carried out as part of a property management plan and involve sampling and analysis of any suspected material. A refurbishment/demolition survey, on the other hand, is required when a property is being refurbished, demolished, or undergoing major works. The survey is more intrusive and requires access to all parts of the building to identify any ACMs that could be disturbed by the planned work.
The cost of an asbestos survey varies depending on the type of survey required and the size and complexity of the property. A management survey typically costs less than a refurbishment/demolition survey as it is less intrusive, and a smaller property will be less costly to survey than a larger building.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer competitive prices for our asbestos survey services. Our Management Survey costs start from 150, while our Demolition/Refurbishment Survey starts from 300. However, the exact cost of the survey will depend on several factors, including:
The size of your property will have a significant impact on the cost of an asbestos survey. Larger properties will take longer to survey and require more samples, resulting in higher costs.
The complexity of your property will affect the cost of the survey. A straightforward building with an easy-to-access roof space and subfloor will be cheaper to survey than a property with limited access and complicated layouts.
Older properties that were built before the year 2000 are more likely to contain asbestos, so surveys of these properties may be more expensive than those of newer buildings.
The type of materials used in your property will affect the cost of the survey. ACMs that are easily accessible and can be easily sampled will be cheaper to survey than those that are hard-to-reach or require specialist equipment to sample.
The number of samples required will also affect the cost of the survey. If only a few samples are required, the cost will be lower than if multiple samples need to be taken.
May is the month where the UK government raises awareness of the dangers of asbestos. During this period, we offer discounted prices on our asbestos survey services. Contact us to find out more.
When an asbestos survey is carried out, samples will need to be taken and analyzed by a UKAS-accredited laboratory. The cost of sample analysis is included in the price of our asbestos surveys. However, if you need samples taken only and then analyzed, the price is 30 per sample.
