Asbestos is certainly a complex and emotional subject, it is known to be the cause of various health conditions including various cancers, because of this fact many of my clients are understandably anxious, usually because they believe the materials, that may be present in their property, will cause them harm. This is rarely the case, especially where materials are intact and/or sealed. Anxious clients are given immediate reassurance, based on facts not fiction.
Most of the asbestos surveys I have carried out since 1989 (yes I have been doing it that long, well before it became a stipulated legal requirement in 2006) have found a huge variety of asbestos materials (see gallery), mainly low risk and easily managed, some high risk and requiring a lot of careful remediation, many where no suspect materials were found.
This is a loft hatch which has been double faced with Asbestos Insulation Board (AIB) containing 40% Amosite (brown) asbestos fibres.
Commercially, any non domestic property requires an asbestos survey carried out by competent asbestos surveyors in order to comply with current regulations (CoA Regs 2012), the duty holder of the property is required by law to protect those working in or visiting the building from the risk of asbestos exposure through survey and continued management.
I usually carry out these because; it has been requested by the local authority/HSE, there is a change of lease, the property is being sold, the property is being significantly refurbished or demolished. It is not usually necessary to remove asbestos materials unless in extreme circumstances, where the material is regularly damaged or it is too damaged to repair. Commercial asbestos reports contain all the required information that will enable the client to manage the materials in a safe and efficient manner in accordance with regulations.
We help you through every stage of the process, from initial quote and advice, the completion of the survey, including any assistance you may need to manage asbestos materials found (if any). A free advice line is included in every survey.
Asbestos is dangerous because the tiny airborne fibres can get trapped in the lungs when breathed in, the fibres can mutate cells in the lung wall and lead to cancer, for which there is no cure. Asbestos was used in over 3000 different building materials and is not always easy to locate (this is where experience counts).
If you simply need a quick asbestos survey give us a call to get things going, if you need a more complex asbestos management system for a large site we can also provide an excellent service to suit your needs.
We always help take the confusion and anxiety out of asbestos regulations, asbestos fears and concerns, this includes complying with the revised Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012*.

Kent Surveys no longer carry out asbestos removal (25 years was enough!) and I have always felt uncomfortable with surveyors that also carry out asbestos removal, it is far too easy to recommend expensive removal or raise anxiety levels in order to ensure further work, when perhaps, it is not always necessary. I can provide asbestos removal quotes from 2 independent and competitive removal contractors if required. The HSE actually recommend management over removal, asbestos only becomes a problem when it is disturbed.
