Asbestos Survey Kent
If you have any reason to believe that asbestos or ACMs could be present at your property or premises you should have an asbestos survey as soon as possible. For homeowners it is completely understandable that you would want to protect yourself and anyone living with you from harm, while business owners and landlords of commercial properties are obliged to have a plan in place to deal with asbestos to comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Crucial Environmental have completed countless asbestos surveys in Kent over a number of years – we have the experience to deal with all forms of asbestos and a reputation for thorough and meticulous work. When we carry out a survey we will locate any ACMs on your property and provide you with information about their condition. Our survey will help you put a plan in place to deal with the asbestos.
Asbestos Testing Kent
Full testing of ACMs is an essential part of our surveys. If we discover any suspicious materials that be believe may contain asbestos we take a sample and have it analysed in a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited lab. The lab will create a certificate of analysis for every sample, which will give details on any asbestos found. If you require the results urgently we can offer an expedited service but in general the results will be back within 36 hours of the sample being taken.
Asbestos Report Kent
After the survey has been completed and analysis from the samples has returned, we will complete a full asbestos report for you. The report will provide you with assessments and recommendations for what to do about any asbestos or ACMs that were discovered. All reports are printed in full colour and bound, and we will also email you a copy in PDF format.
Asbestos in Kent
Asbestos can pose a serious risk to human health but until very recently, this fact wasn’t understood. It was only in 1999 that asbestos was banned for use in building materials in the UK. That means that any structure in Kent that was built before 1999 could potentially contain asbestos or ACMs. Thankfully as long as the asbestos is in good condition it is not usually dangerous for humans unless it is damaged or disturbed.
If it is damaged – and this could be something as small as a nail being hammered into a wall containing asbestos – fibres are released into the atmosphere. Once here they can be breathed into the lungs where they can cause damage. That’s why it is so important that if you believe there may be asbestos anywhere on your property, you should have Crucial Environmental carry out a survey.
