Asbestos is a hazardous material commonly found in buildings constructed before the year 2000, including homes in Hampshire. It is a carcinogenic fibrous silicate mineral that can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other serious lung diseases if inhaled. As a result, it is essential to identify and manage asbestos in older properties, particularly before refurbishment or demolition.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we are a leading asbestos survey company in Hampshire and the South East of England. Our team of experts specializes in asbestos surveys, asbestos removal, and hazardous waste disposal. In this landing page, we will discuss the importance of asbestos surveys, the cost of an asbestos survey, and how to take care of asbestos in your property.
An asbestos survey is a comprehensive inspection of a property to identify the presence and extent of asbestos-containing materials. It includes a visual inspection of the property's interior and exterior, as well as sampling and analysis of suspected asbestos materials. There are two types of asbestos surveys: management surveys and refurbishment and demolition surveys.
A management survey is a non-intrusive inspection of a property to determine the presence and condition of any asbestos-containing materials. It is required under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 for all non-domestic properties built before 2000. The survey is designed to ensure that any asbestos materials on the premises do not pose a significant risk to the property's occupants or visitors.
A refurbishment and demolition survey, on the other hand, is a more intrusive inspection designed for properties undergoing refurbishment or demolition. It involves destructive inspection to access areas that may be hard to reach and may cause damage to the property, such as ceilings, floors, and wall cavities. The survey aims to identify all asbestos-containing materials, including those that may be hidden, before any refurbishment work or demolition takes place.
Asbestos materials on your property can pose a significant risk to your health, your family, your visitors, and your neighborhood. If you own a property built before the year 2000, it is essential to identify and manage any asbestos-containing materials on the premises to avoid exposure to asbestos fibers.
Asbestos fibers are small and light enough to be inhaled, causing serious damage to your lungs, leading to several serious lung diseases. Asbestos materials are likely to cause fibers' release into the air when they are disturbed, such as during maintenance, repair, or demolition work.
An asbestos survey will help you identify the presence, type, and condition of any asbestos-containing materials on your property, allowing you to develop a management plan to ensure that the material does not pose an immediate or long-term risk to the property's occupants, visitors, or contractors.
The cost of an asbestos survey depends on various factors, including the type of survey required, the size of the property, the location, and the age of the building. The most significant cost factor is usually the type of survey required. A management survey is generally less expensive than a refurbishment and demolition survey.

During the asbestos survey, our experts will take samples of any suspected asbestos-containing materials in your property according to UKAS-accredited standards. The samples will then be subjected to laboratory analysis to determine the presence, type, and condition of any asbestos materials.
The laboratory analysis and the type of survey required are the most costly aspects of an asbestos survey. Typically, laboratory fees may cost between 20 to 40 per sample analyzed. The number of samples required depends on the size and complexity of the property.
