What is an Asbestos Survey?
An asbestos survey is a vital process designed to locate and assess the presence of asbestos-containing materials within buildings. These surveys play a critical role in preventing exposure to asbestos, which can have severe health implications. By conducting meticulous inspections and thorough sampling, we help you identify potential risks and take the necessary steps to manage and control them effectively.
Types of Asbestos Survey
For our domestic, home customers, we deliver peace of mind that you and your family are safe, and ensure clarity if you are selling your home.
Companies owning or responsible for premises need an asbestos survey for compliance with the law, and protection of their workers.
Tradespeople are in a unique position because of their potential ability to identify hazards. Also, they are on the front line of any risks. So, we work with tradespeople to ensure premises in which they work are safe.
For Landlords and Property Professionals
Whilst landlords of pre-1999 homes are not required by law to have an asbestos survey, it is considered good practice.
Asbestos Management Survey
All commercial, industrial, and retail (non-domestic) buildings built before 1999 must have an up to date asbestos survey and management plan.
Asbestos Refurbishment or Demolition Survey
This is required upon either refurbishment or demolition, for all buildings built prior to 1999 which are places of work.

Asbestos Survey FAQs
The duration of an asbestos survey depends on factors such as the size and complexity of the property. Generally, smaller properties might take a few hours, while larger or more intricate structures could require a day or more for a thorough assessment.
Conducting an asbestos survey requires specialised training and equipment to ensure accurate results. Hiring certified professionals like us is advisable to ensure your safety and compliance with regulations.
It’s recommended to update your asbestos survey whenever there are significant changes to the property, such as renovations, demolitions, or changes in property use. Regular updates help ensure that you have accurate and up-to-date information on ACMs.
Our surveys are conducted by trained professionals who follow strict safety protocols to minimise risks. Asbestos exposure during the survey is highly unlikely, and our team is equipped to handle potential situations with care and expertise.
