Compliant Asbestos Management Surveys near Sunbury
We complete a whole range of asbestos surveys near Sunbury or Walton on Thames. Asbestos is the term used to describe a group of six dangerous and hazardous natural-occurring mineral fibres. It was mined regularly throughout the last century and when tiny fibres become airborne they can be breathed in or ingested. This is thought to be responsible for causing many serious illnesses, including lung cancer and asbestosis, which is a scarring of the lungs or pulmonary fibrosis.
Asbestos can be found in many domestic and commercial buildings built between the 1950s and 1980s. Asbestos can commonly be found in garage roofs, garage cement walls and ceilings, flue pipes, floor tiles, pipe lagging, artex ceilings, and other areas.
We complete a range of surveys to thoroughly inspect any domestic and commercial premises. Ideal for properties large and small, it is a legal requirement for the duty holder of non-domestic premises to manage any ACMs (asbestos containing materials) that may be present. They need to produce an asbestos register and to do this, they will need to complete an Asbestos Management Survey. Formerly a Type 2 survey, this standard and non-obtrusive survey is used for the management of buildings, where no works are being carried out. It includes testing and identification of materials which are accessible. This survey does not typically cause any damage.
