Do not trust companies that offer specialty services in everything. It is better to find a company that has a specific focus on asbestos removal and management.
Do your research thoroughly and choose the right company before you make a deal with one of them.
Ask to see their portfolio. Find out how many customers they have and the number of years they’ve been in business. You should also see if the company has eco-friendly disposal methods of the asbestos.
Normally, a good company will have connections with asbestos disposal professionals who specialise in transporting and disposing of asbestos.
And, of course, the company must be certified and fully licensed with the appropriate government authorities and agencies.
25 Years Experience
Don’t just find a company with an attractive name because that doesn’t mean its employees have the proper skills and training to do their job properly and safely for their customers.
It is more important for a company to have qualified experts that have the capabilities of handling asbestos safely and professionally.
Due to the dangers of asbestos, you can’t take any chances by hiring an inexperienced service provider.
You must hire an experienced service provider that can detect and eliminate asbestos from anywhere in your building or home.
They must also do it in a timely manner so that your schedule is not held up too much.
Demolition or Refurbishment Surveys
If you are going to demolish or refurbish some area of your property, then you need to get a demolition survey or refurbishment survey; respectively. These surveys will show you where the asbestos-containing materials are located in your building or home. That way, you will know which areas of your property need to be worked on.
In some cases, you may need to demolish everything if there are too many asbestos-containing materials throughout the building.
Inspections will be done throughout your property. If the surveyor has trouble accessing a certain area of your property, then accessibility will need to be made by having a destructive inspection done. A refurbishment survey is necessary, regardless of whether you’re doing maintenance or repair work already.
There is no way to know for sure which materials in your building have asbestos in them until they are tested in a laboratory. We have skilled asbestos surveyors who understand the proper way to take samples of asbestos without causing the asbestos fibres to spread. All of our bulk sampling techniques are HSG 264 compliant.
Why Asbestos Tests Are Important
Asbestos contains 6 substances that are used regularly by construction companies. Despite there being different kinds of asbestos, they’re all a danger to people’s health if bothered. The level of danger is different from each type of asbestos.
The only way to detect the type of asbestos and its danger level is to conduct an asbestos test. After the test is done, it is easier to know which type of equipment is necessary for getting rid of the asbestos completely from the building or home. Then you can be sure that everyone will be safe.
All the materials in your property will be inspected during an asbestos test, even the non-contaminated materials. That way, we will only end up removing the materials that contain asbestos rather than wasting time and energy in removing the materials that contain no asbestos.
Do not conduct your own asbestos tests. Since asbestos is a human health hazard, it is better to have a professional conduct the tests because they are experienced in how to perform them safely. Unless you’re experienced at performing asbestos tests, hire a professional to do them for you.
Risk Factors of Asbestos
The people who perform maintenance and other trade jobs on your building or home have the biggest risk of being exposed to asbestos. These people include electricians, plumbers, insulators, demolition experts, and more. Basically, anyone who works with the various materials of your home is susceptible to asbestos exposure.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations requires duty holders to inform people about any existing asbestos-containing materials if they have a chance of coming in contact with them. That is why an inspection is so important to have done.
