Asbestos Surveys

Asbestos sampling, testing, surveys and risk assessments.

If your property was built before the year 2000, it is possible that it may contain asbestos. At Goodbye Asbestos, we have a great deal of experience providing in-depth asbestos testing and sampling for commercial, residential and industrial properties throughout Surrey, in accordance with current HSE guidelines. Whether you need small-scale sampling and testing before a home DIY project, you are refurbishing your property and need an Asbestos Refurbishment Survey or you need to create an Asbestos Management Plan for your premises, we can help.

The presence of asbestos does not necessarily mean that removal needs to be undertaken; often asbestos can be monitored and managed in situ or remedial action can be taken to reduce any risks to a reasonable level. All our comprehensive asbestos testing and surveying services are specifically tailored to the requirements of our clients.

Asbestos sampling and asbestos testing

If you have any reason to believe asbestos might be present on your site, we offer a quick, affordable and specialist asbestos sampling and testing service. We can come out to your premises and take a small sample to be tested for any potential asbestos-containing materials at a UKAS-accredited laboratory.

This analysis will ascertain if asbestos is present, what type of asbestos it is and its condition. The results are sent back quickly and then we can advise you about the best next steps.

  • "I was really pleased to find a company that could dispose of an old asbestos garage that had already been dismantled and stacked in my garden for years. I thought it was going to be much more hassle than it was and was pleasantly surprised at the cost. The guys arrived and were polite, courteous and efficient. No hidden charges or additions to the quote. I will happily recommend them to friends and family."

  • "I wanted to say a big thank you to Chris and the team for the superb job they did this morning in dismantling our horrible old asbestos/concrete garage! It was all done very quickly and professionally. They wore PPE and the asbestos roof panels were securely wrapped in plastic sheeting. The site was left clean and tidy afterwards. I also appreciated your sending me your waste licence and a copy of your insurance which was very reassuring as one reads some horror stories about waste disposal cowboys."

    Gordon Taylor
  • "Very professional and friendly service. Initialy spoke with Andy who gave us a quote and date for the work to be done. Chris and Jeff arrived on time and completely removed our garage although it was pouring with rain. They cleared all the rubbish and left the area clean. Would thoughly recomend this company. Work carried out in Crawley, West Sussex."

  • "Extremely quick response from Andy on my initial online quote. Very helpful from first contact on the phone clarifying all my questions and issues particularly around the difficult access to the back of the property.

Asbestos surveys

Asbestos surveys are can be carried out on all types of properties and by law, The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 states that any non-domestic building must have an Asbestos Management plan in place. In order to manage asbestos, a survey will often be required.

  • Asbestos Management Surveys: This is the standard survey, which supersedes the original Type 1 and Type 2 Asbestos Management surveys. The purpose of this survey is to identify, as far as reasonably practical, the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials (ACMs), which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and to assess their condition. This survey will address any possible health hazards and forms the basis of an Asbestos Management Plan

  • Asbestos Re-Inspection Surveys: If ACMs have been found in your building, there is a responsibility to regularly monitor them. This re-inspection ensures that ACMs are managed according to any risk they pose. It is recommended that these surveys take place every six to 12 months

  • Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys: This type of survey should be carried out prior to any refurbishment or demolition works. It is used to locate and describe, as far as is reasonably practical all ACMs in the the area where the refurbishment will take place or in the whole building if a demolition is planned. This survey is fully intrusive because it is necessary to access all areas, even those that may be difficult to reach. This survey can be used as a tendering document to ensure work is undertaken by the right contractor
