Asbestos surveys

How to get a survey on asbestos?
Since 1950s, in the United Kingdom asbestos was largely used as a construction material. Therefore, all schools, factories, houses, hospitals, and other buildings built before 2000 definitely contain asbestos. It was used primarily for fireproof and insulation, but it can also be found in thermoplastic tiles, pipe insulation, decorative coatings, just to name a few. Moreover, it can also be mixed with other materials which makes it difficult to spot. As long as asbestos is undamaged, it is stable. But, over time, the fibers become airborne and then a reason to worry arise.
In the UK, at least 4000 people die from the diseases caused by asbestos per year. Thus, the asbestos surveys London are crucial when it comes to protecting your business and workforce from the risks associated with asbestos-related diseases.
If you demolish properties, work with building fabric, or have employees that work in unknown properties, then you will need an asbestos survey and management plan according to the existing law.

Demolition surveys. These are carried out by specialists who will test and try to identify asbestos in the garage roof
