Asbestos surveys and testing are needed to safely manage or remove asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). These materials are often found in industrial, commercial, or residential properties built or refurbished before 2000. 

 

Asbestos testing, surveys, and removal 

Whether you are removing an asbestos garage roof, planning a full property renovation project, or managing a commercial building, you will need to know if asbestos is present. Because asbestos degrades over time you will also want to know about its condition. 
 
Normally it isn’t possible to accurately identify ACMs with a visual check, which is why asbestos testing is important. We will provide you with the answers you need and give you recommendations about the best way to manage risks or to remove asbestos safely. 

Non-licensed asbestos work 

If your project involves low exposure to asbestos then non-licensed asbestos work will be suitable. For example, this could include: 
 
roof sheeting and tiles 
floor tiles, roof felt, shingles, damp-proofing, and mastics 
coatings, floors, panels and sealing compounds 
drilling, cleaning, and encapsulating stable ACMs. 
 
To decide whether your project will be suitable for non-licensed asbestos work you will need to understand the level of risk covered by the Control of Asbestos Regulations. Risk can be affected, for example, by the location, volume, and condition of the asbestos in your property. Where licensed work is needed, our trusted partner company can provide compliant and safe processes to manage, remove, and dispose of asbestos. 

The health risks of asbestos 

When ACMs are disturbed or damaged, asbestos fibres are released into the air and can be inhaled. This can cause serious illnesses but the symptoms take a long time to appear which is why it’s so important to protect yourself. 
 
Exposure to asbestos can cause cancer, scarring or thickening which affects the lining of the lungs and the digestive system can also be affected. These diseases are usually the result of prolonged exposure, but you will want to avoid contact with asbestos wherever you can.
