Asbestos surveys and testing near West Molesey
Asbestos can be a difficult problem. If you are concerned that you may have asbestos present on your property in West Molesey, East Molesey, or Hampton, we can help. Whilst laws outlawing the use of asbestos were implemented in 1999, any property constructed before that time may contain asbestos. There is no way that you can identify it yourself and once asbestos fibres become airborne, they are not visible by the naked eye. Once inhaled, asbestos can put you are risk of developing serious diseases, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.
The best way to identify asbestos is through asbestos sampling and testing, or an asbestos survey. It is also worth noting that the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 demands that any commercial property must have an asbestos plan in place to manage possible asbestos. We provide both asbestos sampling, where we can take samples that are sent to a laboratory for review. We can then confirm what kind of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are present and the best next steps.
Asbestos Management Surveys are the most common asbestos survey to identify whether asbestos is present on your property. This will ensure that you remain safe and legally compliant.
If you are buying a property and the home buyer survey has identified ACMs, we can complete a more thorough survey, so you know exactly what you are dealing with.
