Asbestos Survey Hampshire
Whether you’re a homeowner, an employer or a landlord, it’s natural that you would want to know immediately if asbestos is present in a property that you live or work in. It can be hugely detrimental to your health if you are living in a property with potentially-dangerous asbestos, while business owners are obliged to have an asbestos management plan in place to comply with the rules in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. In either case you should have an asbestos survey carried out if you believe that asbestos or ACMs are present on your property.
When we complete a survey we locate any ACMs and help you to understand their condition as well as any potential risks that they could incur. Our survey will help you to create a plan to either remove or manage the ACMs on your property. Crucial Environmental have expert experience in carrying out asbestos surveys across Hampshire, so you can feel secure in the knowledge that you are in safe hands.
Asbestos Testing Hampshire
As a part of our asbestos survey we will provide full testing of any suspicious materials. If we discover anything that we believe could potentially contain asbestos we will carefully take a sample of the material and have it analysed in a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited lab.
A certificate of analysis will be created for every potential ACM that has been sent off. This will provide full details of any asbestos found. In the majority of cases we will get the results back within 36 hours of sending off the sample, but if you require a faster turnaround, we can also offer an expedited service.
Asbestos Report Hampshire
Once the testing of any materials is complete we will provide you with a full asbestos report for your property. This report will offer assessments and recommendations for how to deal with any ACMs including management and removal. All of our reports are bound in full colour, with a copy emailed to you. We can also carry out follow-up inspections on a regular basis so that you stay on top of the situation and ensure that the risk of exposure is low.
The Dangers of Asbestos in Hampshire
Unfortunately many buildings across Hampshire and the rest of the UK will contain asbestos and ACMs. It wasn’t until 1999 that asbestos was banned completely in construction, so buildings that were built before this date may contain the material. Generally, asbestos that is in good condition is only dangerous when it is disturbed or damaged. When this occurs fibres from the material are released where they can be breathed into the lungs. This can cause serious damage to your health. If you are worried about asbestos you should get in touch with Crucial Environmental as soon as possible.
