Are you worried that your property may contain asbestos? Asbestos is a dangerous and potentially deadly material that was widely used in buildings until the 1980s. If your property was built before then, it's possible that it contains asbestos, and you will need to have an asbestos survey carried out to determine whether or not it is present.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we understand that asbestos testing and removal can be expensive, which is why we are committed to providing affordable services without sacrificing quality. In this article, we will outline the cost of asbestos testing in Hampshire and why it is important to have your property surveyed by a professional.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used for building materials in the UK until it was banned in 1999. It was popular due to its fire-resistant properties, durability and insulating capabilities. However, asbestos is now known to be a health hazard, as asbestos fibres can become airborne when disturbed, and inhaled asbestos fibres can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and other respiratory diseases.
If your property was built before 2000, there is a high likelihood that it contains asbestos, either in the form of insulation, roofing, or other building materials. An asbestos survey is essential to determine whether or not asbestos is present in your property. Professional asbestos testing will ensure that asbestos is detected and identified correctly, and you can expect a thorough inspection that covers all relevant areas of the property. We recommend that all homes and businesses have an asbestos survey carried out, especially if any significant building work is to be undertaken. The presence of asbestos may also affect the value of a property, and a survey would provide you with knowledge of the condition of your property.
There are two types of asbestos surveys, and the type required will depend on the nature and size of the building work or use of the property.
The first is the Management Survey, which is required for all non-domestic properties and domestic properties built before 2000, to inspect the condition and location of asbestos-containing materials.
The second is the Refurbishment and Demolition Survey, which is essential for all buildings and structures that are due to undergo significant refurbishment, upgrading or demoltion work. This survey is more intrusive and involves destructive inspection to gain access areas that may otherwise remain hidden.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we provide both types of surveys, and we will work with you to determine which type of survey is required for your property based on the information provided.
The cost of an asbestos survey will depend on the type of survey required, the size of the property, and the location. At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, our prices are competitive, and we take pride in providing affordable and reliable services.
A Management Survey generally costs between 150 to 600, depending on the size of the property and the location. This type of survey can be completed fairly quickly, taking a couple of hours to half-a-day. Its costs are usually lower as it is less intrusive and can be done while the property is occupied.
A Refurbishment and Demolition Survey, as mentioned previously, is more intrusive and thorough, costing between 300 and 1500 depending on the size of the property, location and complexity of the survey. The survey can take up to several days and is usually only required once over the life of the building.
Asbestos testing for individual samples can cost from 50 to 150 per sample, depending on the location and the number of samples required.
Our asbestos surveys come with free advice and asbestos management plans to ensure that you know how to manage asbestos in a safe and cost-effective manner. Any asbestos identified during the survey will be clearly documented, and we will provide a detailed report outlining the location and condition of asbestos-containing materials in your property.
The cost of asbestos removal can vary depending on the type of material and the location of the asbestos in your property. Some asbestos-containing materials can be removed easily and at a low cost. However, other materials that have been damaged or are dispersed require specialised techniques to remove safely, but the latter is unlikely in a standard domestic property.
The cost of asbestos removal is dependent on the hours worked, equipment used, number of professionals required to carry out the work, the materials required to remove and dispose of the materials, and the location of the asbestos.
