Types of Asbestos Surveys We Offer
Here at Complete Asbestos Solutions, we are experts when it comes to carrying out an asbestos survey. As such, we provide a wide range of different asbestos surveys for our clients in Dorset, depending on your exact requirements and property type. The many types of asbestos survey we offer include:
- Asbestos Management Survey
- Asbestos Refurbishment or Demolition Survey
- Re-Inspection Survey
In addition to an asbestos survey in Dorset, such as those listed above, we can also carry out asbestos testing too. You can find out more about these services below.
Asbestos Management Survey
An asbestos management survey is a specific type of asbestos survey, and one we are highly experienced with at Complete Asbestos Solutions. The purpose of this asbestos survey, Dorset residents, is to manage any asbestos containing materials on the property.
An asbestos management survey will identify if any asbestos is present on the property and, if so, where it is located. This survey will provide details on the type of asbestos it is and what the best method will be to manage it moving forward. This could be removal or further surveys to keep an eye on the asbestos for damage.
Asbestos Refurbishment or Demolition Survey
Another asbestos survey we offer to clients in Dorset is our asbestos refurbishment or demolition survey. If you are hoping to have any refurbishment work carried out, or demolish a building, you will first need to have this survey carried out. It will identify any asbestos containing materials in the property which are likely to be damaged or disturbed by the work.
If, during the survey, we find there are asbestos containing materials that are likely to be damaged and become hazardous while work is carried out, they will need to be disposed of. An asbestos refurbishment or demolition survey ensures everyone’s safety while the work is being carried out.
An asbestos re-inspection survey is exactly what the name would suggest – a survey that re-inspects the asbestos in a property. Once you have had an asbestos management survey carried out, which identifies the asbestos present and how best to manage it, you will need regular re-inspections carried out. These are generally carried out on an annual basis in order to keep an eye on the asbestos and regularly inspect it for any damage.
The re-inspection survey will be used to update the Asbestos Register, showing the state of the asbestos on your property, and ensuring you are always being compliant with legislation. By having regular re-inspection surveys carried out, you can make sure any changes to the asbestos are noted and, if it is damaged, it will be picked up on quickly.
Another asbestos related service we offer at Complete Asbestos Solutions is asbestos testing, otherwise known as asbestos sampling and bulk analysis. While surveys can determine if asbestos is present on the property, only proper sample analysis and testing can determine what type of asbestos it is. You might wonder why this is important, but in order to determine how best to handle the asbestos, we need to know what type we are dealing with.
With our sampling and bulk analysis service, you can send us samples of the asbestos fibres yourself, if you are trained to do so. However, we can also take our own samples during the survey we carry out and send these samples back to our lab. They will go through a thorough analysis to determine what type of asbestos your property has. Once we have determined the asbestos type, we can provide recommendations on how best to manage it.
