Asbestos surveys in Mirfield
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in building materials and other products throughout the 20th century due to its fire-resistant and insulating properties. However, asbestos is also a known carcinogen, and exposure to asbestos fibres can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.
If you are buying a property in Mirfield, or if you are planning to renovate or demolish an existing property, it is important to have an asbestos survey carried out. An asbestos survey will identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that are present in the property, and will assess the risk posed by these materials.
There are three main types of asbestos surveys:
Management survey: This is the most common type of asbestos survey, and is suitable for most properties. A management survey will identify all ACMs in the property, and will assess their condition and risk level. This is ideal for anyone who is potentially buying a property.
Refurbishment survey: This type of survey is more detailed than a management survey, and is required if you are planning to renovate or demolish a property. A refurbishment survey will identify all ACMs in the property, and will assess the risk posed by these materials during the refurbishment or demolition works.
Demolition survey: This type of survey is the most detailed type of asbestos survey, and is required if you are planning to demolish a property. A demolition survey will identify all ACMs in the property, and will assess the risk posed by these materials during the demolition works.
Once an asbestos survey has been carried out, you will be provided with a report that details the findings of the survey. The report will also include recommendations on how to manage the ACMs in the property safely. We can help you with all these recommendations and even carry out non-notifiable asbestos removal.
Why is it important to have an asbestos survey?
There are a number of reasons why it is important to have an asbestos survey carried out if you are buying or own a property in Mirfield, or if you are planning to renovate or demolish a property:
- To protect your health and the health of others: Exposure to asbestos fibres can cause serious health problems.
- To comply with the law: If you are planning to renovate or demolish a property, you are legally required to have an asbestos survey carried out.
- To avoid financial costs: If you find asbestos in your property after you have bought it, it will be your responsibility to remove it safely. This can be a costly process.
How much does an asbestos survey cost?
The cost of an asbestos survey will vary depending on the size and type of property being surveyed. However, you can expect to pay around £200-£300 for a management survey of a small residential property but these vary depending on the size of the property and type of asbestos survey.
